Tried Vamos mid-week for a casual night out. The menu is small, but that's ok... However most lacked the zing and flavour their ingredients suggested. The octopus salsa on a popped tostada was nice, but the tostada was a little chewy. Lamb tender but bland,...More

We enjoyed our dinner here and thought it was good value. Octopus tostada was delicious as well as barramundi. Can’t fault patatas braves. We had red wine from Iniesta’s vineyard too. Nice staff and great vibe. We will be back

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration

It's a trendy night-time bar with tapas, so not open for lunch. Great fun at night!
