Relatively new on the scene, from the street this restaurant looks like a small private dining room where groups are happy to share their dishes, though head out the back and decked beer garden type atmosphere awaits. The menu has an obvious Asian slant, blending modern Australian cuisine with Thai ingredients. A highlight is the stir fried master stock pork belly with calamari, ink noodles, peanuts and thai basil. Service is very good and the drinks list has a good range of local craft beer. This would be a great place to bring a group in the front room or perhaps a first date out back.
