This restaurant was highly recommended by one of our culinary friend. Love the freshness of the different type of fishes. The Claypot seafood has different interesting flavors to select from. A nice place for seafood. Reasonable price & good for sharing.

Enjoy some of the best claypot food to be had. If we could import the restaurant to Perth we would. The meals are great and of excellent value. The ambiance is friendly and comfortable and although quirky is a relaxed place to dine. Most enjoyable.
