The Shanghai rice noodles are particularly addictive, but EVERYTHING is good. The set menus are inspired and you won't be disappointed if you just order a banquet rather than faffing around with the a la carte menu. Last week we did just that, and enjoyed:
For the entree:
Sweet and sour lamb with nam jim dressing (pictured);
Malaysian duck rolls with kaffir lime and chilli dressing;
and tom yum infused prawns with rockmelon and apple
For the main course:
Shanghai rice noodles with dark soy, calamari, prawns
and scallops; chicken breast fillet with shiitake and herbal jus;
slow-cooked Wagyu beef curry; and warm roasted vegetable salad
(Can't quite remember the details! Warm cassava
cake and ... some other lovely things!)
This is my FAVOURITE Canberra restaurant. I hope it is around for many birthdays to come. Their website describes the food as 'Nyonya Malay cuisine, with a modern twist'. The decor is also fabulous.
