The service was excellent, food was lovely (had a bbq set which came with a bimbimbap) and great value for money. A new favourite of ours.
Booking on Quandoo is easy and upon entering the restaurant, table was ready. Service staffs were prompt and fast, food was great, flavors spot on. We had the Momo set, loved the marinated beef. Excellent choice for my daughter and myself to celebrate our CNY eve dinner. Thank you!
Wonderful gem of a place in Toorak Road. Great atmosphere, food and wine and knowledgeable service. A fun night was had and will definitely be back!
