We really enjoyed the flavours of the food, however felt the size of portions did not match the prices. The black squid dumplings were delicious however we were left wanting more after only one tiny piece each. The wine was also good, however more options in the $40 to $50 price range would have seen us buy a bottle instead of $11 to $14 for a glass
