Back in the beginning of June, I took Zen here to celebrate him getting the Business Graduate position at RTA. It was recommended by my brother, as his teacher's (for Hospitality Management at TAFE) husband and brother run the restaurant. The first thing I did was hunt down the website, where by I was delighed with an array of pictures as well as the detail of the menu. Not to mention the simple price structure. On arrival, we're served complimentary Pea Soup, which had a lovely hint of Saffron. All entree's are $18 (we tried the Tasting Selection, which was $36), main's are all $29.50 and desserts are all $14.
