Very impressive modern restaurant with class fusion style food! Benches to sit at. “Bubble” drinks, very nice and unusual to say the least. Highlights of the menu were the Ribs and the Tamarind Aubergine. Very good selection of vegetarian options.

This is how a restaurant should be. The food is a true representation of Asian fusion - creative, different, but most importantly delicious. Everyone who works here seems like they genuinely care about what they do, which adds to the whole experience. Try it for...More

The place is nice. The food is really good, however expensive for the amount of food you get. The concept is like a mix between the Spanish tapas with Japanese and Philippine food

Don’t think you can have all you can eat. You will need to order dishes off the menu for dinner
