I was so looking forward to my meal here due to my previous visit however I was very disappointed due to lack of serving size for the small plates and the main meal was just warm enough to eat. Sorry but won't be back again.More

Had dinner here and the food was definitely up to its usual standard. The drinks service was pretty slow; we ordered cocktails and it was a Saturday night so not unexpected, but more bar staff might have helped address this. Lamb ribs & pork belly...More

Great setting for this modern Asian restaurant that is a little bit fancy for your special meal out. The seating is communal, but the seating space is very generous. The set menus are very comprehensive, but al a carte is also just as good. Extensive...More

The soft shell crab were great as were the chicken wings. The Cauliflower Kung Pao, Pork belly, Tofu with fried egg plant, Green curry and Red curry duck were all very good dishes.

Cannot rate this restaurant high enough. Love it! Great express lunch banquet for $29. Hubby & I couldn't eat it all, & were even given a takeaway container! Service friendly & efficient.

Went for dinner with friends. Decor and atmosphere good, staff lovely and friendly but a little over enthusiastic (kept wanting to clear our dishes before we had finished) and food is ok but not inspiring. It was reasonably expensive and for the price there are...More

Went with a group of 15 and were quickly seated and served. We had the $69 banquet which was fantastic, although maybe a little heavy handed on the coriander for my liking - not a big deal though. Beer selection was also great, I recommend...More

The 'famous' pork belly was far too rich/sickly. The salads had far too many ingredients in them! I would not rave over the food, however this venue is good for big groups and seems like they specialise in this.More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
