Our food philosophy is to take the freshest and most seasonal ingredients and create dishes that fuse the very best techniques and flavours of Eastern and Western cuisine. The results speak for themselves. Call it Asian inspired or call it fusion, we will charm your taste buds in a

The 7 course Gourmet Dinner was amazing. My favourite was the Beef Fillet and Dessert. Friendly and attentive staff. Meeting the chef and having the owner explain each course was a great touch. I have never been disappointed when dining here.
