First time visiting this restaurant. Excellent choice of starters, really effective staff always making sure your table is waited on whilst silently in the background. Food was so tasty, Clean and flavoursome. Upper med price range and worth every cent. Be back soon. Nice to have a top grade restaurant do close to home.

Went on a Thursday night after holiday period was over! It was FULL. Good sign for local restaurant. Food hot & delicious. Variety is endless. Loved the Japanese influence with sashimi type dishes & tempera prawns. Not as fond of hot Thai style spices but that is a personal preference. All food was of the highest quality & well presented...

I just walked past the restaurant by pure coincidence. Since there are hardly any good restaurants in this area I thought I give it a try. And I was not disappointed. The food was really good, the service friendly, but not very attentive. We had five different Tapas style dishes such as Spring Rolls, Tuna Sashimi, various kinds of dumplings,... More

We had lunch here today after being recommended to try it by a friend. The meal was wonderful- fresh, tasty, flavorsome and so very delicious. We had 8 different yum-cha dishes covering seafood, pork, veggies and chicken. Quite a few were 3 items per serve but for a small surcharge, we ordered 4 servings. The meal ended with us sharing...

Our first visit to 'Steam'. Certainly won't be our last. This 'Asian Fusion' eatery was something of a revelation. Dinner is served in two sittings, first at 6.15 and the second at 8.00 pm. We booked - it being a Saturday night. The fact that there were virtually no empty tables for the first sitting meant booking is a pretty... More

Rye has never been a place for good restaurants so this relatively new one held some promise, but to be hit with a surcharge on EFTPOS was a disgrace, for what turned out to be average food. Firstly it is fully licensed not BYO which is the norm for restaurants in Rye, so they have made their money off your... More

My friend and I got the 7 course dinner for 2. Each course is basically a small sampling of one of their dishes from the menu. All plates are meant to be shared. Well, I can't remember all the names of the dishes but each dish is exquisite. The flavours just explode in your mouth. We finished with the Yuze... More

Coming to the Peninsula for years but never visited this restaurant.as it was always booked out. Great place to catch up with friends. The place was buzzing and the food was great. We shared different foods. Portions were not large but they were very tasty. Make sure you book in advance as it is very popular.
