Had dinner there on Friday night . The food was average Fusion Thai. The waiters were efficient but uninterested. The drinks were good. They add a 10% gratuity to your bill which is presumptuous. All in all too much money for average food..More

The dishes were well presented, especially the deep-fried snapper. The salad with bean sprouts and slices of mango was a good accompaniment to the tasty food. The fusion of Asian herbs was subtle. The pork hock dish was slightly on the dry side but tasty....More

fantastic asian-fusion dining in Lt Bourke St. We love the vibe of the place and the food is great, but always very busy, so expect to share a table, but that only adds to the experience. Great food, great cocktails and very classy

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. Great to read that you enjoyed our communal dining experience. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true 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
