Rice Paper Sisters' fit-out is warm, with a dark palette, a mural of a woman on the wall (by Byron Bay-based artist Glenn Mossop) and large tables ideal for groups.

It’s is a little different to its sibling restaurants (Rice Paper Scissors in Fitzroy and the CBD); it covers more of Asia by serving Balinese and Filipino dishes as well as dishes influenced by Thai, Japanese and Malaysian flavours and techniques.

The menu is all about sharing dishes, with plates such as grilled Wagyu with Filipino burnt coconut sauce and pickled shallots on grilled milk bread; Balinese roast suckling pig with young jackfruit and roti bread; and a 12-hour slow-cooked Burmese goat shoulder.

The desserts feature Asian spices. This includes a Vietnamisu – made with Vietnamese coffee mousse, chocolate and lemongrass- and ginger-infused Marsala.

The cocktail menu includes fresh cardamom and kaffir lime daiquiris and a spin on a Bloody Mary: vodka, lemon, tomato, Chiang Mai relish and togarashi salt.
