The seating system is different - place your order and then wait for a table. The food was great though - the hainan chicken rice with bok Choy was delicious as was the hot fun and the prawn dumpling soup. Quick lunchtime service.
On our moving feast we stopped in for some sashimi and found it to be good quality - decent serves, handled well. We also tried the raw beef dish which was also really tasty and tender however, there could have been slightly more care in picking out a few less than choice slices which slightly marred the experience. The beef and mushroom dish was fantastic.
The service was quick and friendly and the serves were quite generous but it was average pub food. I don't often eat parmis but tried this one and thought it was bland - not a lot of taste to the tomato topping.
I returned after a long absence and was pleased to find that the food and service was still excellent. Whilst drink service can be a bit lacking (purely because they're so busy running food to the tables), you will not wait long for your food to arrive. Everything we ordered was delicious but I can definitely recommend the shallot cakes, slow cooked duck, ho fun noodles and green peppercorn chicken.
This was my first visit and I was impressed with the decor and in particular, the spacing between the tables - a rarity these days. The service was disjointed - we were asked by several different people if we wanted to order drinks and the same thing happened with our food order. The food was a bit hit and miss. Some were greasy, some were cooked unevenly. A great place for a drink I think.
It was like walking into a bar in Japan. Great selection of beers and wine. All the plates are small - "tapas" like. Everything was extremely well executed - perfectly cooked and pleasing to the eye. A big variety of dishes. Excellent service all night. It's only small so it would pay to book. I can't wait to introduce more people to it.
Very funky decor with bright orange and green (sounds weird but works). Can recommend the soups - it is definitely worth it to upsize to the large for an extra dollar. The pho is delicious.
A last minute decision to go to the movies resulted in a need for a quick meal. Having previously been to Pellegrini we knew the food was good and now needed to test their efficiency. We arrived at 7.00pm and the movie was at 7.20pm. A quick menu choice of salt and pepper squid and pizza and out order was in. Within 10 minutes food was on the table. The salt and pepper squid was a generous serve of squid, salad and chips and we were glad we'd picked a slightly smaller pizza. Whilst the squid was slightly oily it was tasty, there was plenty of salad and the chips were crunchy. The pizza was delicious with a thin base and plenty of topping.
We made our movie.
