Food was reasonably tasty with some good options for those of us who are slice challenged. Space is very small with small tables and stools so was a bit uncomfortable after a while.
Funky Thai restaurant. Absolutely gorgeous food and nice venue. Cocktails were great too. Worth checking out the specials on the board. Would definitely return and recommend.
Good food there but unfortunately the place is understaffed. it might be because i went on anzac day. Overall it was a pretty good experience
