Food menu was great, reasonably priced and was absolutely delicious. Drinks menu was great and the service was exceptional. Grace was our main host & she was fabulous and well organised to execute a birthday cake. Can’t wait to return.

Love it here, all the dishes are interesting, tasty and fresh with seamless service and a great wine list thanks to ownership by one of Brisbane’s best operators- wonderful.

Is it the policy of this asian thai restaurant not to welcome people from some communities? My daughter and I were standing in the front line when another group of clients arrived - to my shock, the new arrivals were ushered in first. It appeared intentional; the caucasian usher didn’t offer an explanation, and acted like he was doing us a favor just to be let in. However the foods are below average. We ordered kingfish, but it tasted like a low grade sashimi albeit served with a thai pickled fennel etc eaten with a fork and spoon, which diminished the experience - a bit pretentious too. The soft shell crab bao roll smells really fishy and chewy despite the rich thai ingredients – is this chinese bao or thai ?– or a clear attempt at fusion that went badly? My advice to diners, avoid this restaurant at all cost.

The good:
Food - just amazing. The quality is outstanding, and the menu and mix of flavours is so innovative, creative and delicious!
Service - very attentive, friendly and polite service. Constantly refilling our drinks. Fast delivery of food.

The less good:
Value and ambience - look the food is expensive, but I wouldn't expect any different for the quality and quantity of food. The restaurant is also stunning, the design of seating is a bit different and it's in the heart of Newstead. However, our booking was at 8.30pm (there is a standard list of times on the booking website, and 8.30 is the latest and often the only one left as it's hard to get in!). We sat down early at 8.20, we ordered wine, entrees and mains, and they started pushing us out at 9.30pm while we were just starting our mains. Very quickly the nice service and beautiful ambience dissapeared as they asked us if we wanted packs to take our food home or wanted dessert now, brought us the bill, and their nonverbal language was just a bit less friendly. It just wasn't nice anymore and made us want to leave.

We were 2 people who spent over $200. We understand it closes at 10pm and people want go home, so maybe 8.30pm shouldn't be a booking time, or maybe the staff could have a bit more tact n wrapping things up.

Amazing food in a beautiful restaurant, it's expensive and don't book after 7.30pm if you want to enjoy your evening.

Very impressed ... the food was fantastic. Very authentic Thai that I couldn’t fault. The service was also really good, attentive, efficient and knowledgeable. We originally ordered more than we needed and were told to cut back as it was too much. A sign of good restaurant. Would definitely come back.
