Went here as a family for our daughter's 21st birthday dinner and it was just great. The food was well presented and had amazing flavours. Best part was ability to order multiple little plates of our favourites.

A favourite restaurant for some tasty Asian food! I love how you can order tapa style dishes and try a little bit of everything. The soft shell crab is delicious and I highly recommend the popcorn chicken!

The food was delicious. We had the Thai beef salad, chicken popcorn, chicken satay, coconut rice and the pulled pork bao and they were each excellent.
The service was friendly but quite slow. We actually had to pinch a menu from the table next to us.
The atmosphere was quite different. It felt like we were having dinner in a dark nightclub. The lights were super dim and the music was loud. Definitely nothing I have experienced before!

Very attentive wait staff and delicious food. Had to order seconds of the pork belly skewers - a master stroke with the hot mustard addition! Food came out quickly and was presented beautifully. Thought the pork cheek could do with some tweaking; the coffee flavour was a little overpowering so the dish was a touch unbalanced. We didn't let that spoil an otherwise excellent experience. Will definitely be back.

Amazing food and atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We had a group of 3 people and ordered around 7 sharing plates which was plenty and with the firsttable discount this came to $57 ( not including drinks) which is fantastic value for such a high quality restaurant. Definitely recommend trying first table and Hot Sauce Restaurant for delicious Asian fusion cuisine at an affordable price.

Fantastic night out. All the boxes were ticked - great service, great drinks, great food, great music, great vibes. Some places that offer First Table can really rush you along, but the staff at Hot Sauce encouraged us to take our time and enjoy our night - starting us off with drinks and then telling us to just start with a few dishes and just order more each time we're ready. The food was sensational as we're the few cocktails I tried. The mood of the place, variety of seating and fantastic music just added to the experience. I couldn't recommend Hot Sauce more!

Having been to Hot Sauce for drinks before I was very eager to try their food. For a Sunday night it was surprisingly busy, even early on, which is always a good sign. The tapas plates were all delicious - great for sharing. And a few cheeky cocktails finished the weekend off beautifully. ten out of ten :-)

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at "hot sauce." The bar and wait staff were gorgeous, young, fit and fast - a bit like us 40 years ago! They were as busy as they'd ever be on a Tuesday evening but managed their tasks well and were always polite and efficient. We made
wonderful food choices and the food was unbelievably fabulous. Will return with my daughter from Melbourne in December. She will be soooo impressed.
