They couldn’t find our reservation. They gave us a terrible table. The restaurant was loud and rowdy when we arrived. The food was good, pity it’s not on the main menu.

The dishes were all very tasty. The Miso Malva was particularly interesting. However, the portion of fish that I had for the main course, was roughly the size of two fish fingers, and I felt it could have been a little bigger. Definitely worth a visit.

The crispy duck sushi roll was absolutely delicious. The sauce for the linefish was good so was the flavour of the jerk chicken. The steak was well cooked as per order but was under seasoned. I do wish the mains were a little more Asian flavoured. The dessert was a let down - the miso toffee pudding was not available and had to settle for a cheesecake that also tasted old. The brownie was also disappointing.
