Week One of our Modern Chinese menu commences tomorrow night and we must say this menu looks pretty darn delicious 🙂 And it’s fair to say this ain’t no ordinary Chinese fare either and has Kym’s signature Bare Bones flare added into the mix – think ‘Flathead Drowned in Sichuan Pepper Spiced Chilli Broth with Bird’s Eye Chillies’, ‘Crispy Fried Soy Braised Pork Hock’ and ‘Pineapple and Rum Chocolate Bar with Pineapple Fritters… Click here to view this awesome menu.

Also following the popularity and terrific feedback of last month’s BYO Wine on Friday nights (for only $10 per bottle), we’ve decided to continue with this for… well, indefinitely… so YAY! Come take advantage of it. As always, dietary requirements can always be catered for if we know in advance – just say the word when you make your reservation 🙂 Ph 37155571.
