About Us

We are Tript (Head Chef/co-owner) and Guru (Barista/co-owner).

We took over the restaurant as is with all its character, decor and welcoming locals. The only thing we’ve changed is the cuisine.

High quality modern infusion concept inspired by middle eastern, French and Asian cuisines with locally sourced ingredients. We create tasty and well put together dishes, make great coffee and have a talented mixologist behind the bar bringing the wow factor.

The atmosphere is laid back and casual with a sense of professionalism delivering on quality food and service.
