Most of the restaurants in Franz Josef offer a similar menu, 88 is the exception.
We started with a dozen mixed dumplings which were delicious and followed this up with the daily special. This was Cantonese beef with stir fried veg and a sweet potato rosti, an excellent combination. We completed the meal with banana pancakes in syrup served with coconut ice cream.
The service we received was second to none.
This is a great restaurant which I have no hesitation in recommending.

Not a huge choice on the menu but this to me shows it is more likely to be freshly cooked. We had the beef teryaki and chicken nasi goreng. The beef was tender and well flavoured and the nasi goreng delicious. Portions were generous, leaving just enough room for pudding. The lemon posset was delicious. Staff were friendly and attentive. Not a lot of atmosphere, but a quiet night when we visited.

Prawn crackers were greasy and the portions small and did not seem to be freshly cooked. Mainly the place lacked atmosphere, regretted going there. The incessant playing of BoneyM grated after hearing it for 45 minutes!

Pad thai was amazing. Staff were wonderful. Nothing is a problem. Why would you go anywhere else?
Thanks Barb.
