A last minute booking on a Saturday night went well. We were squeezed into a 6.30-8pm slot for five and shared a large communal table with a group of delightful students. The shared entrees of lamb ribs,soft shell crab and satays were good. Mains of calamari,fish rice and gado gado were uniformly hot and well seasoned. Only downside was the... More

6 of us dined here for a Saturday night catch up dinner at its new persona Fish head. A great selection of dishes with a mix of Malay and Indian influences with a modern twist. We decided on the share selection. There was plenty of food and we certainly didn't go hungry! We would definitely return!

We had tried British India but were interested to try this revamped restaurant. It was a birthday celebration on a Sunday night and not too busy. Everything we tried was delicious including the pork belly, duck and beef cheeks. With a bottle of the Lois bubbly from The Lane in the Adelaide Hills we had a great night out.

What can I say expect if you are the 'real' thing then this is not the place. They target the Australian/European taste buds

Four of us ate five of the starters.. you cannot go past the lamb and chicken satays which are totally authentic.The bug tails were to die for, the street beef naan I... More
