We started our dining experience with the Pita Surprise, an inspired dish of pita stuffed with truffle butter topped with lightly seared wagyu beef, a delectable beginning. We tried many small plates and our favorites were the duck gyoza served with miso and chili ponzu, fresh tortilla with sliced avocado – A surprisingly light and airy dish with green chili mayonnaise, and the favorite -The sliced yellowtail with herb aji amarillo sauce, a must order!
Chef Reif’s inspired menu is top notch in a great setting, along with an extensive selection of grape. For our mains we opted for the 76 hour slow-cooked wagyu beef ribs, a delectable mix of crunchy pieces and soft, tender ribs served with a spicy goma dressing and spring onion salad. Our side of grilled Hokkaido sweet corn with butter and lime was an absolute delight!
As we neared the end of our meal with stuffed bellies, the courteous staff brought out a selection of desserts – We loved the sneaker bar and sticky date pudding! A delicious meal in a fantastic setting with highly efficient service, a great grape selection and top-class dishes – Chef Reif has created an experience worth loosening the pockets for. This restaurant and lounge surely ensures you come out to play!
