This is a 'must do' for the foodies amongst us. Hard to fault the tasting menu which was fab. The service is welcoming and knowledgeable with everyone justifiably proud of the dishes on offer. Sadly the food experience is a little let down by the...More

Lots of people rave about this restuarant but we like our food served no matter how uniquely prepared in a timely fashion. How fast should you expect a 10 coarse meal to be served? We didn’t expect to get tastes of food every 20 to...More

We went with a friend and simply lived every single course of the 7 (lunch time menu). They did an awesome job of adjusting the menu for my food allergies and we left feeling amazing. Each course is a delicate balance of flavours. The presentation...More

The 10 course menu is imaginative, full of subtle flavours and very satisfying. The service was excellent, the waiters knowledge of food and wine made it a great experience. One of the best tasting menus we ever had!

We were very pleasantly surprised by the meal at Greenhouse. Arriving early, we took a walk around the gardens and had a drink at their bar. The opener was strong an homage to chawan mushi that was silky, smoky but also subtle. The rest of...More

Everyone likes pretty food, but when you spend more time staring at your food, taking photos of it and figuring out what it is than tasting it...it feels like it's just wrong. And when you do taste it, you get one mouthful...what's the point? Food...More
