Food is consistently good whenever we come here. Waitress may have been new as didn't have much knowledge of the menu and was wearing denim beach shorts which was a bit odd.

Having dinner outside was lovely, and my husband's salt and pepper squid was excellent. My Kung Pao chicken was only fair. Good drinks menu. Nonexistent service - we finally ordered at the bar - even though the waitress occasionally flitted by, never stopping at any tables.

Totally random find but some of the better Thai food I've ever had. Mads was awesome, helpful and was able to tell me what I could and couldn't have. Totally worth a stop in this fun place. Try the Pad Thai, different but you won't regret it

Harry's was great! Highly recommend the prawn toast & salt/pepper squid. Great service! Not too expensive either!

This bar has a great vibe to it. There's an excellent wine and cocktail list and while we were only having drinks here before going on to dinner, they also have a reasonably good dinner menu. Recommended.

We stopped here to grab a beer and watch the world go by. Sit outdoors and enjoy the foot traffic people watching. There were some bugs so be warned.

I'm not fully into Asian fusion food but was very surprised. We had a "tapas" type of meal where we chose several items from the appetiser list which we shared. Great choice. They also have a great cocktail menu which we sampled!!

From the second I entered the building I was made welcome by the waitress, Madolyn, or mads as she was making us feel at home and was fantastic with us from start to end! The food was great, again delivered by the aforementioned Madolyn!
