Wife and i had set menu. Great selection of asian style tapas.Great array of flavours.
Could not eat last dish as we were that full.
underground setting very New York.
Price more than reasonable.

The food here is unreal, spicy lamb cutlets and red curry are like nothing else. I've tried everything on the menu here over the past year and everything was just perfect. My favourite restaurant in Perth and best of all, it's BYO.

Its an interesting little place, situated below ground across from the Mint.
There are windows to catch what view there is.
There are some bench seats with cushions, and regular tables scattered about.Its not crowded, but may get noisy when busy.
We found the food interesting and good value.
Its a BYO place which suited us .
Staff are friendly and the food was delivered promptly.
There is a good range of dishes, something for everyone.
We were there on a Tuesday, and it was quiet but patrons were obviously enjoying themselves.
There is reasonable street parking available.
We will return soon.

We thought we would try this restaurant due to the good reviews . The restaurant was really funky however the rest of the dining experience was pretty disappointing . We ordered the set tapas I swapped the skewers for the squid. Every single dish was brought out together we were on a tiny table for 2 it seemed pretty evident we couldn't fit another plate on the table but it kept coming until I asked them to stop. I love tapas style food but not all of it at once. The spring roll and samosa were ok but there was no wow factor . The squid was fantastic . Sushi roll was open so came out on little squares of see weed I enjoyed them it would have been nice with a little wasabi the hubby wasn't keen. The chicken wings were to oily for me to eat but hubby liked the flavor. The last dish was a bowl of massaman curry very rich and heavy for a last dish on a tapas menu. There was a lot of potato and 2 very small pieces of meat the curry was extremely sweet . The roti that accompanied the curry was also very sweet but nice and flaky. Overall it wasn't a great food experience and I wouldn't rush back

The place has very nice decoration. I had high hopes that the food will taste as good as the decorations, but thoroughly disappointed.
