Specials menu was very hard to read with the handwriting. Luckily the waitress went through it with us.

We were recommended the crispy skin duck in plum sauce. Was very glad to have chosen this dish. Absolutely worth the hype. The sauce was amazing. Duck was very tasty too. We also ordered a fried John Dory. Very delicious as well.

The only slight disappointment was the salt bush cakes. Not as nice as expected and the taste seemed quite ordinary.

Rice was in generous portions. Overall great experience

After a specials menu that was handwritten and impossible to read the staff member did a great job explaining it but what a disappointment! The crab and prawn dish were like four marbles in a dish and tasteless@$24, the duck was totally over cooked and not tasty @$45. I would not recommend or return as quality and quantity not there.

Absolutely unforgettable 7 course "Kylies selection". From the oysters to the duck and the Panna cotta just delicious. Only negative is some course are a little over garnished.

Dear Kylie, we booked a table of eight and were all looking forward to an enjoyable experience! Our expectations were high as we had watched with great pleasure your TV series traveling and cooking your way through China and enjoyed your appearances on MasterChef. We were hurriedly talked into having your set menu by a waiter who assured us all the most popular dishes were included. The first two were Pickled Vegetables followed by Asian Coleslaw, both very acidic and unpleasant. The third course arrived in quick succession and had to ask the waiter to please slow the courses down.We were not overly impressed with the rest of the menu. May I add we visit fine dining restaurants with our group and are very happy to pay premium prices for premium food but this was not the case at your restaurant. At 815pm we asked our waitress for another bottle of wine but were told quite abruptly No! - it's too late! Sorry to have to say Kylie overall this was a very disappointing evening.

Kylie Kwong on the passe and organising service as if she was conducting the Philharmonic orchestra! That is going to guarantee that you get the best possible product. We were a party of four and ordered the banquet. We were not disappointed. An excellent variety of dishes including a fabulous crispy skin duck as well as a refreshing Chinese slaw. Even the desserts were outstanding, not in the same food genre, however what is there not to like about chocolate Mousse and Panna Cotta!
It's very busy so book early or go for the later sitting. A buzzy atmosphere with some nice background music.
