Invited in by the doorman because bhukara was closed for refurbishment and we are so pleased we were. We ordered some sushi for starters and there was enough as a main course. The 2 main courses were plenty big enough to be split. One would have been enough for the two of us to share. Don't be put off by the big portions though because the food was excellent. We are only here for another 4 days but we will definitely be going again!

We arrived with an uber to this restaurant, is not the best neighborhood.
We got to chose the table. We had some problems in the beginning with the drinks because we got warm sparkling wine, but I asked if I could change it and it was okey. We tried to order some white wine chenin blanc, but all was empty, so we ended up with one cheap souvignon blanc because this was one of the only cold ones they had.
The dumplings was good, and the main course was okey. We ended up with 2050 ran. So okey price for 4 persons eating stater, main course and shared one dessert. Had 2 wines, 2 beers + coffee.
All in all okey, but I'm not coming back because I missed the good service.

What a great Asian restaurant in the heart of Cape Town! We came here for dinner and were very impressed with the food and service – wish we had time to come for another meal! A stand out dish was the crispy broccoli ( we were not sure what to expect but it was the best broccoli I’d ever had! It is lightly battered and fried with a spice mix over it. Would highly recommend visiting if you are after modern and tasty Asian Fusion food when in Cape Town.

We use Tripadviser everytime we're travelling and so we found this restaurant.
The food was better than we could dream of. We loved every bit of the sushi, dim sum and the other stuff I cant even pronounce.
Its dark and you think due to location its not good but it is. The service was exceptional even though the weiters had more than enough to to.
