Catching up with a girlfriend always require a place that isn't too loud so you can hear each and not have to YELL.
Arrived after 6pm and was asked for a reservation? Of course I didn't have one seeing as it was so early! We chose a table on the border of the inside/outside line. The courtyard floor is lined with fake grass, in addition, they have fairy lights all lined up with some displayed in glass jars.
I would have to say the ambiance is casual with relaxed vibe accompanied by some great tunes. We spotted a DJ deck but by the end of the night there was no one playing, probably stuck with the trusty Ipod.
I started with some pear cider and Emma had Prosecco (i think). To eat we had a selection of dumplings ranging from mushroom, prawn, duck and crab. Each had 4 portions. The BBQ duck is amazing! You must get this.
We were content with our starters and decided to leave mains for now till we were more hungry. Instead we filled up with some beautiful Barrosa Shiraz and when then was nearly finished we decided to share the "Kuila Dadai" which is Malaysian style pandan crepes, caramelised coconut, "laughing donuts" and coconut cream ($10). Mouth watering dessert!
Staff are friendly and attentive. Located upstairs on the mezzanine level, below ‘Hugos Lounge . We were surprised it was not packed?! Indeed this is not one of your average dumpling bars but the food is spectacular.
Get on it!

I like trying new things, visiting new places and going on food adventures. I keep it short, simple and sweet!
