“Another great addition to the 'Murra”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Wandered in here Friday evening without knowing what to expect. The place is easy to miss from the street and is accessed by stairs. Sat at the bar and ordered some drinks. Staff are friendly and there was a chatty crowd there too. All in all, what a bar should be. Ordered the burger which came medium (not common here in Aus with non-radiated beef mince) and it was very good indeed. Will be back.

“A Bar with personality!!!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We arrived around 7.30pm on a Saturday night to find this place almost FULL and very lively!! Lucky for us a waiter seated us with another couple to 'share' their table or miss out!! So we shared and WOW were we pleased!! To order wander up to the bar, place your order, a number is given for your table and food arrives and pay on leaving!! Easy!
It has great atmosphere, excellent friendly and attentive staff AND fantastic food beautifully presented! We decided on two tapas plates- 6 prawn dumplings with soy sauce and lemon, 4 pork belly seated on mashed potato and rocket AND lychee cocktails OMG they were SO good!!
This place had a wonderful welcoming fun atmosphere and we were SO pleased to have tried it - we WILL be back SOON!
A reminder to book especially on the weekends and it DOES accommoate large groups which is always a blessing!

“Great Local Bar”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Called in SAturday night to check out this relatively new place.
Little problem in getting a table-could have alternatively sat at the Bar.
Nice selec tion of drinks-probable a little cheaper than some near suburb alternatives.
Tried 2 of the Tapas plates-Sang Choi Bow(excellent) and some fried(moderately) prawn dumplings. Reasonable value.
Service very friendly -will go back.
