The signature restaurant, you will taste a fusion of Eastern dishes designed to awaken the senses of any food lover. With true Asian philosophy in mind you are presented with a laidback and versatile culinary experience based on the concept of food sharing.
In the Asian home, eating together as a family is very important. Dishes are served in the centre of the table and family members take what they like and serve it onto their plate. There is usually no order to the dishes being served and everyone shares from the centre of the table. This creates a less stressful experience, and more time can be spent in conversations about what happened during their day.
