With a broken heart we have unplugged and will be shutting down this beautiful operation 💔
I am still trying to digest…
The Asian restaurant was led by Cheyne Morrisby, chef-owner of much-loved eateries Lucky Bao, Shio, Cheyne’s and Ding Dong. It opened in early January 2020, quickly became a must-visit spot for foodies and offered a unique take on the traditional dining experience. Guests shared a communal table with several other strangers, and were served food from the open kitchen that is in full view of the dining room.
Many took to social media to express their sadness over losing this unique Southern suburbs spot.
