Fodor's Review

This bar-restaurant occupies a heritage-listed four-story building that has housed an undergarment manufacturer, a 1930s sweatshop, a brothel, and even a Buddhist temple (but not at the same time). Asian dishes, in small, medium, and large portions, are designed to be shared. Everything is served in an atmospheric brick-walled first-floor dining area decorated with swaths of fabric and sewing machines; the wine selection is stored in battered metal luggage lockers. Small dishes include pods of snake bean and golden sweet kumaro poached in wanton pastry, green pea, and coriander puree. Favorite medium dishes include seafood yellow curry and honey soy braised Wagyu shin.
