    Don’t miss any of the merrily named in house cockatils such as the Ping Pong, Camp Bitch, Bloody Longrain or the famed Caiprioska. Trust us, you want to be slightly drunk when the bill arrives.

    The interior is very chic. Had a hard time staring at my food, because the atmosphere is so incredible. Dining is communal and the food is meant to be shared, you won't be disappointed.

    Cocktails are fantastic. Dining is good if you don't mind communal seating. Tho' there is an option to get individual tables. The green and red curry are splendid dishes.

    The caramelised pork, prawn & sour pineapple entree is RIDICULOUS. I pretty much could've just had two (or three, or ten) plates of that & been EXTREMELY happy. Fantastic staff, epic cocktails.

    Found a cockroach swimming in my water and when we pointed it out to the staffer they told us that sometimes when they set up the table small cockroaches crawl around the table. Not reassuring!
