BORN OF A DREAM FROM TWO BEST MATES SITTING CURB-SIDE ON THE STREETS OF BANGKOK, SAIGON AND SINGAPORE – STUFFING THEIR FACES AND EMBELLISHING MANY A STORY WITH AN ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE OR (TWO TOO MANY!)
A dream to open a place that embraces the well-loved style of Asian street food. A place with no rules but to have fun with a beer in hand… a place that weary travellers to South East Asia know and love.

Way back in 2013, the boys fulfilled that crazy idea of opening a restaurant where you only used your hands to eat. The food was great, the cocktails… even greater, but best of all were the amazing experiences shared. Food tastes better this way.

We tried the vegan menu and found to be very restricted with the ingredients being used . Apart from eggplant and tofu menu lacked variety.

There was no lack of flavours though but all the dishes we ordered had almost same flavours with lot of spices.

Not bad overall but nothing special either .

Service was really strange - we got really harassed towards the end of our booking, regardless of plenty of free tables around..
Food was lovely but came really spread out so we didn’t really get to mix and match very well.:

Having visited your CBD restaurant in March we were looking forward to a similar high quality experience and we were very disappointed
The wait staff were friendly energetic and welcoming and when we were asked our impression of meal we answered honestly and she received our feedback very well and adjusted our bill.
Our impression was that’s it’s too big too busy and that your food preparation quality has suffered.
The lamb was excessively fatty or not fat rendered properly which is a time consuming process. However the sticky pork was the most disappointing certainly the fat wasn’t rendered no crispness at all and the meat had the texture of it been cooked in an airfryer. The mouth feel was just yuck fat.
In fact my sisters were both sick that night and believe it was the sticky pork

We were a group of 4 (two couples) and seated upstairs with two families seated together with at minimum 6 kids. No other customers were seated upstairs even though there were empty tables.

Obviously, it was very noisy and difficult to hear each other talk.

What was disappointing is that when we arrived there was a free table downstairs but we were allocated upstairs, not sure why?

Hey Lou Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We're sorry your experience did not meet you expectation this time. Unfortunately due to covid restrictions at the moment we have had to be careful allocating tables in correct amounts throughout the venue so as to keep everyone distanced.

Disappointed the tuna wasn’t available at all. Ordered two cocktails - both extremely weak in taste. Reordered, only got one back. Ordered the ceviche a second time, which lacked the crunchy garnish. Love this place, and know it was a busy afternoon. Will always come back.
