The silken tofu is incredible. It is honestly worth having on its own, as a meal, with rice! Possibly the best tofu I've ever eaten. The cocktails are unique and interesting (though also expensive) - the chilli-infused vodka cocktail is not for the faint hearted!...More

Wow. Be aware. Taste explosion area. Possibly the best Asian food I have had. Fresh, strong and aromatic. The crispy whole fish with chili, tamarind and lime was a stand out. Yellow curry and pork ribs weren’t far behind. Not cheap but outstanding.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place

such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
