Dined here in October. Some of the tables have chairs with no backs which may not be suitable for everyone, so maybe request a table on the wall where the chairs have backs.

Called in on the spur of the moment for Friday lunch. Simply asked the very competent waiter what was good and sat back and enjoyed. We had soft shell crab salad and caramelised ham hock with a side of Asian greens. Brisk and friendly service. Worth a try.

Been here a few times. The food was ok but nothing special. The service was bad. Got our food quickly but then nothing for 45 minutes. The staff were plentiful bit more interested in talking to each other than serving us.

Great place with a really interesting Asian fusion menu. The waiter was fantastic. So good I let him order for me! My dietary requirements were dealt with without fuss. The food was really excellent. Highly recommended.
