The new Darawan is excellent! The staff go above, and beyond to make sure you have an enjoyable dining experience. Drinks menu is extensive, and sunset cocktails here are a must! My favourite is the breakfast menu - smashed avo!!!

Wonderful flavours offer a refined combination of traditional and modern Asian/fusion dining.
