“Good food, though timing a little off”

Tucked around the corner at the top of Chinatown, entrance not on Ann street as you would expect from the address!
Nice welcome and ambience, funky decor and great playlist! Staff were knowledgeable on the food and drink options and happy to help.
We ordered 8 dishes for a table of 6 for a tapas style meal. All the food was very nice, especially the kingfish sashimi and the pork bao was a hit.
However, the last two dishes arrived about an hour after the first... which meant there was a reasonable gap towards the end, which somewhat took the edge off the enjoyment of the meal.
Deep-fried salter caramel ice-cream was delicious (for someone with a sweet tooth) but a big portion for something so rich! Possibly a treat to share?
Overall quite nice, but could have easily been great!

Cosy modern Asian restaurant. Great selection of dishes that kept our whole table happy. Can't wait to go back.

Quiet dinner with the wife. Edamame to start followed by tapas style chicken pieces and croquets. Main was a delicious beef cheek red curry. All the food was delicious and the red curry was tender and well balanced. The portion sizes were excellent and we were completely full. Despite that we topped it off with a lemon curd dipped in liquid nitrogen. Again it was fabulous. While it was a relatively quiet Wednesday night the service was excellent. We will come back for sure.

Ignore the negative reviews, this place is great for tasty and reasonably priced sharing food. It is mixed Asian, we thought the pork bao and red curry were especially nice. We'd go back!

Great food and very friendly staff. Amazing options for Veg and Vegan no hassle! Small but good wine list. Live the freshness of the herbs. Great Quality!
