about us

Where boozy cocktails flow to old-school beats, and a modern and rebellious take on Asian eats, serve up good times with mastery. Tucked away a stride from 17th Avenue’s nightlife, our intimate and urban space welcomes you all night and late-night. Our little-but-loud menu puts a boldly flavourful, yet nourishing spin on Korean and Taiwanese bites - all starring local ingredients and the beloved bao bun. Pair it with best in the city sake list and our curated cocktails and bow down to the bao with your inner Sensei.
