The decor is dark with interesting-looking lamps inserted in bamboo trunks giving a soft glow. A fascinating feature in the decor was the light feature, with a ceiling with visible high rafters with large prints on the walls and dark wood furniture.
We were a tad overwhelmed by the very extensive menu with everything from starters, salads and soups to meat dishes from chicken through to crab.
Where do I start? My friend and I were bowled over by the starters - we ordered marinated chicken thigh wrapped in organic pandanus leaves and herbs, which was served with a ginger and sesame sauce. Piping hot, with just the right amount of spiciness and a tanginess in the sauce.
The mains were even more of a pleasure; a lamb curry of dried spices in coconut milk with sweet potatoes, roasted peanuts and cashews and another dish of stir fried duck with garlic, fresh chilli and basil. Both meats were both tender and tasty.
