    Great hidden gem in the city. Did a work lunch for a group and the $35 tasting menu was outstanding value. Great selection of wines too. Food was delicious and they catered for GF and Vegetarian in the group too. Would recommend checking it out!

    We had the 2 for 1 banquet ($75) for our anniversary. It was all delicious food, attentive service and lovely cocktails! We had a lovely time and they even brought our dessert with a little anniversary sign. Would definitely recommend! Thanks for the great evening

    Overall a great dining experience, not crowded at all, nice ambience, great asian fusion food, friendly service, had a nice short chat with the Vietnamese man in pink blazer. Definitely will come back. A small suggestion, would be nice to have something on the menu with salted egg :)

    What a great food and wine experience. We celebrated an important milestone and were really happy with the service, food and wine selection (try the German riesling). The only tiny issue was that we had to ask for a bottle cooler to keep the wine cold and staff was having some interesting conversations around the open kitchen.

    The service was amazing! From the time we arrived to the time we left. Everything was well explained with patience and understanding! It was my husband and I first time having a set meal and we would definitely pay for it again! Beautiful atmosphere and very delightful! We will definitely come again!

    The tasting menu was great value to try different items from the al la carte menu, and all beautifully presented. Service was very good too, our waiter had a great knowledge of every dish. Not too busy, which is surprising, nice and quiet to catch-up with friends and hear each other! Will be back again.

    2 for 1 set has a very reasonable price and the food was quite amazing too! However, I don’t think I would come here again if there wasn’t the deal… Everyone should try it once tho! If you love thai food, u will love the food!

    The serving size was too small for $75 per head. The food quality was average and the ambience overall was very “restaurant in a hotel” vibe. The desserts seemed somewhat stale. Cocktails were nice though!

    Food was amazing and good value. Waiter accidentally spilt glass of wine over some of us. Glass smashed on floor. No one came to assist, had to pick up glass shards ourselves and mop up. Very poor service, no real apology or to check that we were okay. Some glass was still on floor but they didn’t seem to care that this could be a safety risk for patrons. Shame because the food was outstanding.

    8 of us chose the $65 banquet and did not disappoint. enough food to share and felt content when finished. ambience was quiet and calm which was not the right one for our group, but our choice. cocktails ordered but one was forgotten about. split bill was a great option but surely the waiter could have come to our table to take payment instead of us 1 by 1 going up to bar to pay! just a small thing but would have finished the night better

    Great food! Good ambience. Service was attentive. Even though we had a booking, when we arrived, a larger table had taken our seats so we had to sit at the bar for the first 25 mins. Bit disappointing, but nonetheless, still great food.

    We had the $65 two for one set menu. We really enjoyed the first 3 small bites/entree dishes but the 2 dishes of main courses were only ok not much different from any main course in a normal Thai restaurant but we would come back again and try other dishes.
