Dined here last night with the wife. It was her birthday. Walked through a very dark alleyway into the restaurant. There was hardly anyone there. We thought the place was closed. Sat next to a table with a young couple who were strangely holding hands...More

Just outstanding cocktails. Had a fair few and they kept getting better (and not just because I was choosing the strong ones). So many options and lots of unique flavours and ideas. Friendly and welcoming bar staff. Sleek environment but comfortable and welcoming.

Whilst thoroughly enjoying the terakihi dish with lovely flavour and texture, I was disappointed to find a large bone in it. Thankfully it was about the last bite and no damage, but not expected. Mistakes happen and bad luck on my part, but not sure...More

I absolutely loved my Brussel sprouts with almonds and the salmon and kraut was yum - BUT I can't reconcile why a restaurant that takes such care with its food and ingredients would not choose free-range pork for the Sunday roast? The waiter was helpful...More
