My son chose here as the restaurant to be taken to for his birthday dinner. My other son had reservations given his experience with a tapas style restaurant pushing the courses through to get the patrons out ASAP. Needless to say he was pleasantly surprised.
Our group ordered 6 dishes and they were all presented in a timely manner, that is no sooner had one been finished there was minimal break til the next was delivered. The food was excellent, but a mild warning if one is not into spicy choose your dishes carefully, Our group had no such difficulty as we all prefer a bit of tang in our meals.
The food was excellent, my favorite was the pork belly. Let it suffice to say in a group of six there were five different favorites in our group with the Pork Belly getting 2 yays.
The waiter was excellent and guided us through things as this was our first visit to this establishment.
When came time to pay the bill I was pleasantly surprised that 6 people could be fully sated foodwise for such a reasonable tab including wine.
Definitely a must visit again on a future visit to Melbourne.

Aside from getting whacked in the back by all the by passers. The food was fresh and 5 for $65 for two was plentiful.
Great ideas on the menu, dishes were interesting and fresh.

Hands down one of the best restaurants i've eaten in. Simply incredible food, Calamari and crab, my personal favourite. You choose 5 dishes for $69 which you would share between 2 people. Service and atmosphere was great. Cocktails were average but will be back here again very soon!

The five dish selection works really well. The food never disappoints and price wise it compares very favourably with its competition.

Good food, though personally not sure why there's so much hype around it. A lot of the food is a bit spicy, so if you're like me and can't handle much spiciness, keep this in mind. Very friendly and knowledge staff.
