Fodor's Review

Named after its owner's signature cocktail (served up with half a fresh chili and slice of ginger), this restaurant and bar delivers on all levels. It's hard to recommend particular dishes because it all tastes so good. Try the spinach leaf with roasted coconut, peanuts, garlic, chili and lime for a stunning starter or the light, crunchy texture of moong dal and mixed seed salad with fresh lime and avocado. The sticky beef wontons are popular but save room for the equally delicious mains to follow. There's a good selection of wine and, of course, fabulous cocktails, served in a striking, seductive setting. The restaurant is offset from the road, so keep your eyes peeled to find it. If you can't get a table at this popular spot, head to the bar and check out the snack menu so you don't miss out altogether.
