Nice place and good service. We ordered an entrée of a prawn skewer which was not at all good. Very watery tasteless prawns. Ordered a medium rare steak and it came out medium/well done and tough. Not what we expected.

Delicious food with unique natural flavour pairings. Presentation and overall vibe of restaurant could use updating. Resonably priced. Well worth a visit overall.
