This chocolate pistachio souffle was light & chocolaty. A few minutes of waiting time but it was worth it. The pistachio sponge was soft and fluffy. Drizzled with cream, it was not overly sweet and not heavy. Quite well executed and one of the better ones I have eaten.
This used to be one of my favourite brunch spots. Went today, and wow have things changed and for the worse. Firstly the price has gone up hugely, the "English Breakfast" is $32 ++! And compared to somewhere like The Study, which has a similar English Breakfast at $19, the quality are portion size fairly is miles behind The Study
The quality of the food all in all has taken a nose dive. The food is ok, but nothing special, certainly not worth the price. Would avoid, there are far better places nearby. The food has definitely lost the "wow" this place used to have.
My boyfriend and I had an absolutely wonderful meal here! It was not a cheap meal but everything we ordered was fantastic! We shared the crab cakes for starters that were done to perfection. I had the kangaroo fillet, which was cooked to perfection and extreamly tender. Just as good as any steak I've ever had! My boyfriend had the taglierini and it also divine. The size of the dishes are not big, but the quality is high and they are delicious! For drinks, he had the Apfelspritz (not sure if that is correct spelling) and I had the citrus drink. They were great and our wines were also very good. The only thing we did not love was the chocolate pistachio souffle for dessert. The souffle was done to perfection, but neither of us could taste pistacho in it and it was coloured green with food colouring artifically which just made it essentially a good tasting chocolate souffle that was coloured green rather than a pistachio souffle. I understand that this meal would be expensive for a brunch, but for a fancy romantic dinner it was wonderful! We found the service also excellent and did not wait long at all for our fantastic meals, about 20-25 mins for our starter and 10 mins for our mains after that. All the staff was friendly and attentive as well!.

Usually i am not a big fan of bistro food but i really loved the food at Open Door Policy, the food here was very innovative and tasty. Among all the dishes we had, i personally loved the Guacamole risotto and Crab Cake and dessert the best, while the rest were well-done as well. Service was efficient, very relax and homme ambiance. Really want to try their weekend brunch next time, the green curry eggs benedict looks drooling!
