Food is really nice for a change; not your typical chinese restaurant as its more of a fusion restaurant; good location but please make sure you book as its always full in the evenings.

If you are looking for authentic Asian food this is not the place. The twist on East Asian dishes really doesn’t work.

Really liked the food here, we ordered about 8 or 9 plates which was more than enough for the two of us. The food comes up tapas style, you can share it or just eat your own. My favourite was the ribs, will go back...More

Really delicious food served by friendly and very attentive staff. All dishes are made with fresh and tasty ingredients. Spicy but very well balanced. Wish they would be located in my neighborhood. A must visit!!

This place is well worth a visit. The food is all cooked fresh in this small funky restaurant. Their in house beer is also well worth a try. The aubergine dish was my favourite.

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