On the surface, it looks like a funky take on an authentic Mexican restaurant. But if you look closer, you start to realise that there’s more to this place than meets the eye. It’s like getting lost in a Georges Seurat painting—the longer you look, the more you discover.

Why go?

Expect fresh, high-quality ingredients to create exciting and tastebud tingling dishes.
