Gone are the plastic tables huddled in what was essentially a draughty passage. The new restaurant is swish and spacious. It’s clean-lined yet dramatic. It’s very Sydney and a welcome addition to the strip.

There are plans for a floating deck out front, which will have views of the fountain – I’m told the boards will finally come down mid-year – and the restaurant avenue all the way to Gateway.

It will be the place to people watch. I liked it.

By the end of the meal the name of the place feels more like a personal judgment — it is hard to resist overindulging when plate after plate of not-so-mini portions of rich, Asian-inspired food is placed before you.
