Giro Giro

The space at Giro Giro looks cool. The food here is a modern take on kaiseki (same structure less fuss), and much like its space – an old building that kept most of its old structure but now has a buzzing kitchen in the centre of it – it has a bit of old, a bit of new and together it has funk. All in all, it is delicious keiseki food that is chic and accessible to most people without breaking the bank.
