Great food and really good value with the shared plates offer (2 entries, 2 mains, 1 side for $65)! Cocktails were also really well done. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable, especially with dietary requirements - plenty of gluten free and vegan options! Only downside is the venue is quite small and so it is pretty crowded and a bit cramped and loud, but we didn’t mind too much as the food was so good!

Amazing food at a quality price when doing the $65 deal for two; tasting a little bit of everything. The food was timely, hot and delicious. The staff were lovely and accomodating, and insightful.

Food was delicious - we dined outside which was next to a busy road but was fine - it is all part of the Melbourne dining culture

Booked a table for 7 and all of us were super impressed with the food!

Our table was unfortunately outside but the staff were highly accommodating and moved the outdoor heaters around for us! Although if it was to rain we would not have been covered.

We chose to go with the dishes we wanted to try most rather than a banquet.

Highly recommend the bao buns, the mango salad and pork belly with apple slaw were also favourites!

Loveee the fried chicken, fried rice and the flat rice noodles (we ordered the whole menu almost)

Couldn’t recommend more, if you’re a foodie and you love spice this is a must for you :)

The service was fantastic! They couldn't get us onto our table straight away but kept us up to date and then gave us a free drink. The food was amazing and everyone was completely full afterwards. I will come back!

Fantastic value for $65 per pair banquet - the betel leaf, scallops, asian broccoli with pork belly and stir fry beef were all delicious. Cocktails were fabulous, esp. the lychee me up and rising sun. We stayed under 100 pp with generous dish proportions and 3 drinks each! Also nice vibe, casual but hip. Definitely would come here again. A hidden gem.

Satay chicken skewers are pre cooked and heated up. The middle of the skewers was cooked but cold. Food was quite greasy and expensive for what it is.
Boa buns didn't have coriander or chilli and minimal slaw.
Sorry but was not impressed
