Lovely food in a funky environment. It was a bit hard to visualise the food from the extremely sparse menu descriptions (which is why we didn't take the three course set menu but went a la carte). But the food is really awesome. We had the wagyu beef and short ribs for mains, and they were nothing but delicious. They didn't have a wine list (something about changing their concept) but the recommendations from our server were spot on. Unfortunately there was only one other table occupied on the Monday night we were there which felt a little lonely. Overall highly recommended.
