It's a beautiful restaurant that's situated on the back of Emu Bank. It's a bit difficult to spot from the road as it faces Lake Ginninderra - just gorgeous on a sunny weekend afternoon.
The main menu has a selection of small and large share plates, but additionally, there are some weekly specials and a tasting menu as well. Everything is reasonably priced and looks good.
Mango Yakult drink: My go to drink is always a mango lassi. This wasn't thick like a lassi, much lighter with ice and a bit carbonated. I much prefer the taste of Yakult to yoghurt, and the probiotic taste really comes through. +++ Recommend, give this a try.
Duck tacos: This came with spicy Sriracha and hoisin sauce, and some mesclun on top. Yummo!
I guess tacos are Mexican, Peking duck pancakes are Chinese, you don't normally see a lot of salad leaves on Japanese food. You can see why it's called a "fusion" restaurant.
Oysters: Came with sweet pickled pears on top. For those who don't like a strong ocean taste, this is a sweet way to enjoy them.
Takoyaki balls:. They have really stepped up their game here. Lots of lumps of octopus. These are really decent and probably the best takoyaki I've tasted in a while.
Prawn Ochazuke: Reminiscent of paella with the tomatoes type sauce.There's no tea in this dish and it's not particularly runny. The prawn flavour really comes through, and the prawns themselves were large and juicy. My favourite dish.
Sous vide tenderloin: The meat was very good and perfectly complimented by the mushrooms and aioli. That white sauce was perfect. I usually don't like kale but the fried kale was also quite delicious!
Service was good, and the dishes were brought out in a timely manner. It's very quiet and peaceful inside, especially as it's near ( but not directly overlooking) the water.
This is one of my new favourite restaurants. If you like White Chaco or Lazy Su, this is along the same lines but with clean minimalism. Highly recommend! See less
