Summary

MasterChef finalist Andrew Koj’s “stripped back” – and crowdfunded – Asian café, long in the making, is by all accounts a “good place to know of” – the “decent (to “superb”) Japanese small-plate cooking” is “unfussy”, and “pretty good value” too.

"Japanese fusion to a very high standard in this centrally-sited bar/restaurant. Well-chosen wines and beers at inviting prices. Service modern-style pseudo-chummy, but good nonetheless."
