The service was fantastic. We had bottomless brunch and we didn’t feel rushed in and out like some brunches when the time is about to run out. Only thing I would maybe change is the meal sizes where a fraction small considering you are consuming 2 hours of alcohol.
Couldn’t fault the staff.

The service staff were patient and polite and checked in with us regularly.
The food was good but we thought that they might be better if they dialed back on the sweetness of every dish.
Would happily rate this over other modern Asian restaurants.

Food was lovely as were staff. Our only critique was that we ordered the ‘Feed me’ and literally 5 dishes arrived at once which went cold before we could enjoy them. Same when larger dishes arrived. We realise that it’s a 2 hour seating but we had plenty of time and it should have been staggered...we really couldn’t enjoy it. We ended up leaving quite a lot which was disappointing.

Overall a good experience, the service was very good and the food overall was very nice. The only issues it was very noisy with a lot of people at the bar and if you have the banquet they bring out multiple dishes all at once.

Over priced and forced to take a banquet menu
Even though this was not advised when booking the table
Some of the guests on our table did not eat seafood

Would not recommend for large groups
As there was no flexibility

Responded on May 25, 2021

We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our service and value your feedback. We highly suggest our banquet options for bookings over 8pax as it facilitates the service on our end, and prevents your guests from receiving their meal at different times. You can find this information when booking online. We do accomodate to any dietary and provide your guests with replacements for them to enjoy the full banquet experience once notified. We hope this helps clear any misunderstanding.

One of the most disappointing experience. Food was average and pricey for what it is. It was very salty and way too sweet as if they could not balance it and took it too far.

Food good, but that’s where it ended. Service poor. We were told to wait at bar until table ready and more or less forgotten about. Had to chase up table... apparently they didn’t know we were there????
Our table was tiny and other people standing over the top of us, leaning on our chairs when we were trying to eat.... started to turn Restaurant into nightclub when we were still eating. Not an enjoyable experience at all! Food was tasty but that’s about the only good thing to report.

We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our service and we value your feedback. We would like to apologise for the poor management of your booking on our side. We will endeavor to improve on this moving forward. We do turn into a late-night bar after 10:30pm when the dinner service ends, our apologies for not giving you the adequate time and comfortability to enjoy your dinner. We sent you an email and hope to organise your next dinner at The George on Collins at your convenience.

Service could be improved. We were first time diners and we were taken to our table given water and then left for 15 minutes without any service until we called a waitress. We were then given menus but no explanation or guidance. Service then improved. I would only recommend with reserve.

Great place that turns into a club afterwards with great DJs! Foid was great except the oysters had an extra ingredient in it that wasn’t on the menu! Too much spring onions which overpowered the chilli vinegar flavour! Otherwise food & atmosphere was great:)

Great fit out & ambience but was expecting the food to be alot better. Sorry to say but the Pad Thai was probably the worst I've ever eaten. Quite bland.
Cocktails were nice & I can see why this place is popular at night. I probably won't come back again for a meal but maybe some drinks.

Fantastic food, great service. Accommodated our booking for eight just hours before our arrival, for which we were appreciative. This place is directly across the road from our office so we'll be going there a lot more often from now on! Thanks.

Food and service was good. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a cute little alcove which was nice as it gave a more private setting within the larger bar/restaurant atmosphere. Food was quite overpriced for what it was. $18 for 4 dumplings?

Highly recommend for groups as lots of space & good options available for sharing. Service was friendly but we had to ask for second bowl of rice as only one delivered to our table as well as ask for more water. Other than this, we enjoyed the food as there were options available for vegetarians in the group. Everyone had a great time.

Service was terrible. Our reservation was at 8:45pm, but the place was already like a nightclub. Half our order didn't come, ages between courses, we kept getting asked to repeat our order (just write it down!) and around an hour after ordering we were advised our chosen main wasn't available. Maybe it's better at lunch or at 6pm?

Booked a table for 5 people weeks I. Advance. Upon arrival, taken to a bar table with seating for 3. Had to wait at the bar for 15mins for a table to become free. First round of drinks when ordered at the table took over 25mins to arrive.
Food was amazing, atmosphere was fun, but the service and organisation unfortunately let down what was to be a memorable birthday dinner.
