Leigh Power and Ben Tua want you to have a good time. And they make a good team. The hospitality stalwarts worked together at Sweetwater Rooftop Bar and The Old Synagogue before opening Shui, a luxe Asian-inspired restaurant at the former Funtastico site on Rokeby Road.
The good times start with the menu. You might find cured kingfish spring rolls served in a crispy wrapper with avocado cream bookends, like a ceviche cannoli. Or crowd-favourite prawn crumpets, a prawn toast spinoff served with a black garlic aioli and a salty hit of roe.
Tua's drinks menu is full of bold, fun and surprising cocktails. Tua’s favourite cocktail is the cheekily named Only Fams Martini, and a standout is the unmissable Jasmine Negroni, a delicate floral twist on the herbaceous aperitif.
The Rachel Feldhusen-designed space welcomes you in with a gold cocktail bar with jade subway tile highlights; while cream hessian runners are draped across the ceiling in a manner reminiscent of the folds of fortune cookies.
