We had dinner without a booking. We were accommodated on the “ledge” which was a unique dining experience. We had mapo tofu and BBQ roast duck plus a bottle of wine. It was delicious and the ambiance outside was very good.

Delicious food. Great atmosphere. Not a huge wine list but great options regardless. We had the banquet between 5 of us. Was amazing. So much food. And they customised it for us. Can not wait to go back.

The menu choice is narrow but I tried the mushroom tofu dish with steamed rice which cost $20. The serving was moderately generous. A beer cost $8. It has a modern decor and caters largely for young diners with the popular music too loud for...More

Went to this restaurant as part of Bite Sip Stroll. This was the first of four restaurants and by far the best. Food was plentiful and absolutely delicious. Ginger chicken was my favourite with the duck an incredibly close second. Service was great. Venue is...More

No; licensed; and that's the reason the place is so edgy, hand chosen wines. Just buy wine by the glass, it will improve your wine- food culture.
