    One of the best restaurants in shanghai. Sauces are amazing! How did they make cauliflower so delicious? Try the scallop ceviche and peanut+berries dessert too

    You get great breakfast and brunch here. Order a few of the tapas sized dishes or sets to share out. Try the Pork Burger with Foie Gras, Iberico Ham Toasties & Angus grilled beef. Lovely courtyard.

    Food is always good. It's been slipping a bit but still usually good. Paid $15 for bone marrow and got the tiniest sliver of narrow fat. Oh well. Lots of great modern tapas.

    Awesome Gf decided to do the 4 course chef's choice and got everything on the menu (8 items) for Saturday brunch. Soooooo good. Do it. You won't regret it ;) (overindulged with the green tea dessert)

    Come for drinks. Bar manager Rashid makes some excellent drinks. Try the Bet On Black, which is served with a pair of dice in the glass. If they come up Snakes Eyes, your drink's on the house!

    If you're only 2 or 3 people, don't take a table. Ask to sit at the counter at the kitchen, or the cocktail bar, or the dessert bar (depending on your mood) to watch the action and chat up the staff.

    Very good food. Best suited to group dinning so you can order a wide variety of dishes and take some time over them. The goats cheese dessert is a must. Bring your wallet.

    this is more of a dinner place. I say that bc there aren't any lunchtime deals, same prices during the day. Unless its a business lunch with a corp card thrown down, it's pricey.
