Our dinner banquet for two was sensational. Every course was better than expected and we hope to return. Dishes were creative and original, our tastebuds were challenged, and we loved it. The fish curry and beef dishes were standouts, and of course the beautiful dessert.

But only four stars from us I'm afraid. Apart from one of the waiting staff who was friendly and welcoming, the service we received for most of our meal was generally disinterested and unsmiling - we were really surprised by this. The fact that everything else about the restaurant was so fantastic really highlighted the service issues - the attitude of most of the waiting staff seemed so incongruous with the rest of our experience. We smiled a lot, we were happy to be there, we said all our pleases and thank yous ... but to no avail. We were there to celebrate a special occasion and it would have been lovely to receive a friendly welcome.

But, wow, the food. Exceptional!

The restaurant has some beautiful views of Hobart Harbour. The service was great and the ambience welcoming. The menu is quite unusual with a real Asian focus. Hopefully by now the kitchen will have removed the congee dish which was grim. Our server said several customers had been displeased with it. Otherwise the food was excellent and interesting and a great place to experience Hobart Harbour. Worth a visit.

Importance disclaimer - I haven’t eaten at this restaurant. I did however try to reserve a table and their online system was down. I emailed them to notify and request a booking and never received a response. Food might be good but clearly customer service is lacking.

Beautiful views of the River Derwent from this restaurant. Excellent food served by very attentive friendly staff. Everything done with a smile. We had the perfect evening. Sitting at the bar we were able to watch all the food being prepared in the open kitchen. There was a choice of an a la carte menu or 4 banquet menus.We would certainly go back.
