    Incredible salads, pork and lamb. Flavours explode in your mounth. We chose to order different dishes instead of the trial menu and it ended being cheaper than we thought. I loved this place.

    The only way to experience the many flavours this restaurant has to offer is to order one of the Banquet menus. (As others have mentioned, the pork belly dish may just be the best you've ever tasted!) Read more · September 28, 2012

    The $65 banquet was more than enough food for 2. Fun date night with delicious food and cocktails. Beware the green curry prawn. Delicious but spicier than it looks. Definitely packs a punch!

    The pork belly. *flails Go for the lunch buffet to make sure you have sampled all the best they have on offer. Jasmine has a great personality and was attentive. The decor is mind blowing.

    Great menu all round - on our first sampling here, we really liked the barramundi on betel leaves, the kale salad & the pork belly. Will go again.

    The vegetarian betel appetizer is extremely spicy- be warned! And although these guys can tone down on the chili, they like their garlic. Don't forget chewing gum! Or your credit card. Pricey.

    You cannot go past the pork belly. $25 pp for 3 mains or $30 pp for 5 mains to share with at least another person is served generously with fluffly jasmine rice.

    The food was pretty awesome, esp the pork belly, lamb ribs and barramundi. Although the service was less than commendable.

    The manager has a big time attitude. When I gave him some feedback he told me he serves 10000 people a month and didnt care for customers. If a couple dont come back he doesnt give a ra** a**

    Best place on Earth, this is an institution!Pork belly of course is a winner as well as their cocktail jugs. I love Red Sprice Road so much.

    The banquet is huge for 2 people it's enough for a family. When you are full they will serve you 2 more main courses and then dessert.

    Best thing to do for a first-timer is to get the $75 banquet. You get a taste of all their best dishes. Absolutely amazing!

    Great restaurant! Definitely in the upper price range. Very moder Asian. Get the banquet menu if you dont have a budget!

    Try the Pandan Cream With Peanut Praline, Puffed Rice, Coconut Gel And Coconut Ice Cream - I have died and gone to heaven. Or I must have.

    The wagyu beef stir-fry was one of the better bites I've ever had. Good price for lunch banquet at $28pp

    Pork Belly is fabulous. Unbeatable for large office lunches. Set price. In & out in under an hour. Amazeballs!

  • Tomek W.

    Pork belly was fantastic but sauce was overly sweet, even with liberal lashings of the supplied vinegar.

    Tomek Wolny · March 11
  • Ben

    The pork belly *is* fantastic. Everything else seems overrated and overpriced - there is better Asian "fusion" food to be had elsewhere.

    Bartender was a douche but otherwise, drinks were great. Try the watermelon julep if you appreciate bourbon.

    Pork belly, amazing and a must have. The combination of crackling with tender pork is hard to find.
