This restaurant claims to be “Seven times winner best Thai” and the decor misleads you into thinking this is an up-market place. Then it hits you (after ordering and taking in the details) that it’s actually a dive. And quite an expensive one. The service...More

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
