Look once you get over the fact thst you can't book (unless in a group of 10 or more) and that you might have to wait hours for a table (they text you). It was the best service I have come across in my life....More

Went as a belated treat, have been desperate to go since it opened. We had the 'feed me' option and it was worth every cent and the time we spent. Absolutely brilliant. Every course was sublime. Can't wait to return.

Caught up with family here. Large group; 12 of us in total. What an absolute banquet / feast! Every dish was delicious. Was grateful that we could book, being such a large group. This place is super popular, meaning wait times can be long.

Absolutely gorgeous! Couldn't fault it! Great food, great staff, great ambience. Corn and coriander fritters were just divine! We loved it here and can't wait to go again.

Vibrant, both in the restaurant and on the plate. Flavours abound. The Egg Drop noodle bowl being one of the most delicious things I’ve eaten for months. Service could be a little tighter but the place is incredibly busy, seemingly all the time so what’s...More

This was a disappointment. The service was very, very slow. The beer I ordered arrived with the desert!!?? Claiming the delay on changing the cag. The food was overpowering and frankly not something we liked, and I don't consider us picky.

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

I am not sure if it does have high chairs but bear in mind it is extremely noisy, busy and can be a long wait for a table if you arrive after 5.30pm. You may be best to go at 5.00pm and hopefully seated straight away. On our... More
