In Francis Street, this is a slick little establishment inside –not very large but pleasant décor – they also have the ubiquitous aquarium tanks at front with a host of lobster languishing in them. They are licenced, and with a nice little wine list, too – a good number of WA wines – Kalgan River Riesling, Knee Deep Chenin, Willoughby Park Sauvignon Blanc, Higher Plane Cabernet Merlot and Evoi Cabernet among them.
BYO wine is also fine, and not realising how good their list was, that is what we did – good glasses as well.
The menu is pretty extensive and the serves were looking fairly large from what we saw, so between the two of us we decided on a couple of mains plus rice. These came out quickly and were, as we suspected, generous sizes.
The first, braised cod with ginger certainly had a ginger hit with thinly sliced ginger scattered through the sauce, along with white and spring onions and juicy, succulent slices of well cooked fish. Very good.
Our second, chilli pepper prawns – crunchy and sweet fleshed, topped with chilli, fried garlic and shallots – another well-cooked dish although the chilli component was not that noticeable – however a small dish of zesty chilli sauce on the table assisted in that regard.
All in all we were impressed by the quality of the food – and as it was crowded at lunchtime, I guess they are very popular too, deservedly so from the food we had. The wine list is one of the better of Asian spots around town so they should be congratulated on that. We will be back.
