Sure the helpings are large, but that doesn’t make it for the lack of taste or authenticity of the dish. Worst papaya salad I had in my life, the sashimi was definitely not fresh tuna - also worst sashimi I’ve eaten out. The laksa came...More

Modern Asian cuisine at its finest. Dinner every night and Yum Cha for lunch on weekends. Great selection of teas and wines, hand picked to complement the food. A necessary experience in Byron Bay.
