Went wiz a friend and didn’t like the food at all. This place is overrated. The egg net chicken dish was too sweet and it tastes more like a dessert than a savory dish. This is definitely not the best Thai fusion in the town....More

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
