Gwefey is a trendy, upmarket venue, serving authentic Asian cuisine, inspired by countries across The Orient. The menu is a heady mix of flavours from Bangkok to Beijing, satisfying any craving you could possibly have for something a little exotic. The decor is bold and sassy, the service is attentive and slick and the food is absolutely delectable.
On the starter menu you may spy a few typical favourites, but at Gwefey they are transformed into gourmet delights. Spring rolls are crunchy and fresh and calamari is zesty, while soups and salads are sublime.Starter platters are the perfect way to sample bited-size morsels inspired by various types of cuisine. The starter platter for 2 includes fish cakes, a duck wrap, spring rolls and Yakitori. We melt for good tempura, and the King Prawn tempura had us weak at the knees.
Skimming over the mains menu, the dishes that grab our attention include the Peppered Steak in Black Bean Sauce; Thai Curry Prawns; Tempura Udon; Crusted Tuna and the Sweet and Sour Kingklip.
Sushi is skilfully delivered, and we were impressed to find unusual Hand Rolls on the menu, including such delights as Fried Chicken and Scottish Salmon! Fans of Salmon Roses should sample the Tuna and the White Roses, while dedicated lovers of the Fashion Sandwich will not be left wanting. The speciality Maki consists of 4 pieces of maki that will blow your mind and the Sushi Platters offer everything you could possibly desire on one plate.
