Pepper Chilli

Mietta's Review
Gillie Lau makes a concerted effort to keep her standards high. Importing special ingredients from overseas in order to give the food a point of difference and paying close attention to detail ensures that Pepper Chilli remains just as she likes it.

Other Published Opinions

Qantas in flight magazine October Rita Erlich "They use chilli beautifully here. The hot and sour soup has a great range of ingredients; flavours and textures are complex even though chilli is dominant. Gastronomically speaking, it's like an actor upstaging a good cast of flavours."
