    Get the pork belly. Get there early midweek and it's cheap!

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

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

    Sarah Lang · May 10, 2011

    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.

    Amazing food and atmosphere. Great for groups

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

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

    Pork belly. What a magical animal!

    Simon Dal Zotto · October 15, 2013
  • Tiffany E.

    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!

    Great background music.

    The foods here are just too overrated..

    Maximilian Stefan Reiner · January 18, 2013

    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!

    Joshua Gray · October 7, 2012
  • Rob

    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.

    Rob · October 6, 2012

    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

    Pork belly - must have!

    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**

    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.
