We had the 10 course degustation, second time I've been there and had this degustation. It never seemed to end (which was a good thing!!) Brilliant flavours and presentation is top notch. Wine recommendation was spot on. Its pricey but absolutely worth it.

Finally a restaurant that you want to return to. The staff know their craft and support you along the night with explanations and suggestions without being intrusive. Meals exceptional, Saturday night was packed and busy but we felt like we were the only ones there. Book now, you wont be disappointed. We recommend the duck and pork belly for mains... More

My husband and I had dinner on a Sunday night thanks to the generosity of our son and the place was packed. We were going to go for the degustation menu but when told it was a great deal of food decided to just order share plates ourselves. This was definitely a wise choice. The food was absolutely beautiful our... More

Excellent food and service. Very interesting mix of Asian cuisine much if which I understand is the creation of the chef and not specific to a particular country.

We called in on the off-chance hoping to get a table and were thrilled when we found we could (on a Tuesday night - the restaurant was buzzing). We chose the chef selection menu and the flavours were delicate and exceptional. Would highly recommend this restaurant - the food and service were amazing.

We had the degustation dinner last night and the food was ok, nothing over the top. The staff were in a rush when serving the food and didn't really care about explaining what the food was. When we had questions, they barely answered it and left in a rush. Exceptional... Not Food.... Average Staff.... Poor Recommend... Maybe Would we return...... More

Let me begin by telling you, I don't do Chili. I don't like it, it does horrible things to my digestive system and it blisters my mouth. So why would I go to a place called 'The Spice Bar"? Because I told the people I was with that Trip Advisor reviews were fantastic. So we went. We were walk-ins; no... More

This was our second time here and it didn't disappoint. It was just as good as the first time. The service and the food is way above standard for Asian fusion fare. We had the 7 course degustation and each course was a delight. We were so full and just couldn't find room for desert. The chef was very accommodation... More

WOW What a treat this restaurant is. We dropped in for dinner on Tuesday night and plunged into the 7 course chef selection. What an amazing taste sensation from each dish. The restaurant is an asian train crash. Spices from all over with the freshest of ingredients blending vietmanese with Japanese with contempory overtones throughout. A MUST do dining experience....
