Great little place for a share meal and nice drinks. A bit pricey for drinks and service a little slow.
Thanks for your feedback Kirsty. There was a gap between your first plate of food and subsequent plates which was longer than usual and for which I apologise. Our gin selection ranges from $9.50 to $18 for a standard serve and a couple ordered by your table was at the top end of that range. The Pink Pepper and Slingsby Rhubarb are beautiful gins but special imports on which our markup is tiny because of customs duty & taxes. We'd love another opportunity to give you a 10/10 experience as there are many amazing gins to try at all price points.

Good atmosphere, service was alittle slow on the drinks side as the waiter was serving & chatting with others that came in after us before bothering to get our drinks. Food was very good and highly recommended. Flank steak was highly recommended.

Delicious food and very reasonably priced! I’ve been here before once before the restructure and I have to say I was blown away by the quality and taste of the meals, atmosphere and service. Would come again!
Hi Batoul, that's great, thank you. Glad you loved it.

A venue with the perfect back bar and it's hard to leave! They have an extensive drinks menu that will keep you returning and if it's not the gin it's Dutch's food menu as well. Their menu is cleverly designed for any occasion. A date for two which we have done. For parties, smaller gatherings or late night drinks with cheese. The staff are so knowledgeable and accommodating and there's two dining spaces that can create the ambience you prefer. Highly recommended.
Thank you Huyen for the detailed review & positive sentiment. The whole team is very pleased you enjoyed your evening!

The service was very slow but when the food arrived it was very good, albeit very small portions. We went because of the gin and we were not disappointed. Huge variety and staff who know their gins and mixers. Enjoyed every sip we had and would go back for drinks not food.
