This Asian-fusion restaurant and bar is perched upstairs from the cafes along the main road at Sunshine Beach - a neighbouring suburb to the more popular Noosa Beach.

On the quiet, dark seaside street, the bright neon light draws your eyes and hungry belly up the stairs, where you are greeted by friendly hip staff. It's a cool and popular spot, so it's best to make a booking - especially on weekends and over the holidays.

The window seats are great for people watching if you're on your own or in a couple, otherwise, there are larger tables throughout the rest of the restaurant for groups.

I was on my own, so I sat at the window and ordered my first cocktail - a delicious concoction called Blush made up of Black Muscat syrup, grapefruit and SYG Shiraz Gin - and it was pure YUM!

Service was quick and my main arrived pretty soon after - the green curry with Humpty Doo barramundi, lemongrass, wild ginger and a side of rice. It was honestly one of the best green curries I have ever had. It was a large dish, designed to share so my only wish is that my belly was bigger so I could have more...

Reluctantly I let the remaining curry be cleared away to make room for dessert which was promptly served. A sago pudding with crunchy honeycomb, fresh berries and mint leaves. Each bite was a flavour party bursting in my mouth - and I somehow managed to finish every last bite!

Finally came my second cocktail - something to balance the sweetness of the dessert... A twist on the traditional Margarita called Pablo Surfs in Nias, made with Reposado Tequila, Dry Curacao, Lemon, Ginger and Caramel.

I loved the relaxed vibe of this place, the service was great and most importantly all the food and drinks were delicious and totally worth the higher price point. You get what you pay for - right!

So, I couldn't resist going back a couple of days later for a cheeky Blush cocktail.
