The staff weren’t very attentive, it took ages for them to serve us and I understand it was busy but waving them down after being patient for 20 minutes to order food post receiving our drinks and then them giving us unrealistic time frames of when our food would arrive e.g. rice 5 mins, mains 20 mins but really it was an hour haha. I would just suggest reading the room of their current space and over estimating time frames for customers even though it’s uncomfortable rather than customers being disappointed with a longer time frame.

On the positive, food is worth the $$$, lamb shank was the best ever and they never let us down with their Bao buns! we also sat outside and felt very warm due to their fab heaters even though it was a freezing winter night. Also aesthetically pleasing venue as usual!

It was an overall great experience. The only downfall was the location of our table, as it was next to the door (entrance) and felt a little secluded from the atmosphere.
Food was great and service was good too. 100% going back again!

I came here after visiting a few months back and couldn’t wait to take my boyfriend. Unfortunately after making the booking and going for the feed me menu, the menu price had gone up by $5 each. I had sent the menu through to my boyfriend 2 days prior to booking and we preselected the feed me menu. We noticed right away the price had increased so I mentioned to the staff member serving us that we had came based on the $34.50 feed me menu and unfortunately I was left feeling embarrassed querying it. I would have expected this price to be honored giving the booking date and that menu had literally changed a day prior. We found the service was a little slow to begin with given we only had 90 mins sitting, but understand the venue had only opened at the time of our booking. Food was beautiful, atmosphere and decor is lovely. Would definitely still visit, just a little disappointed after budgeting for this dinner.

Delicious! Every meal we had was packed full of flavour and freshness. Highly recommend the Feed Me menu as it was such great value. Cocktails are also excellent - the Tokyo Drift cocktail was perfectly balanced and packed a punch!

Been a long-time fan of their city location and love that they are now in Richmond as well. The food is always sensational and if you like cocktails, these guys have you covered. Also their menu is well-priced and I believe you get great value for money.

Booked for 2:30 but was unaware the kitchen and bar both closed at 3. This should be mentioned when making the booking. We felt rushed to make a decision and then when our food arrived didn’t feel like we could enjoy it

They were too keen on moving us on after only 90 minutes. Also they are extremely inflexible when it comes to adjusting the number of pieces in a serving. Food was not bad though. Good fast food style joint but at restaurant prices.

Great food, great value and great place.
Only comments would be around the regularity of staff checking the table for empty glasses and empty plates and taking drink orders.
We often had to flag someone down (granted it was quite busy).
The music was a bit loud making it hard to hear anyone who wasn’t sitting next to you.

Food was great but service of drinks was slow and a bit of a mix up with the bill although it was sorted at the end.
The restaurant has very noisy acoustics combined with loud music made it very difficult to hear,
