Updated after a recent revisit

This high-style pan-Asian palace is more now than just "the Buddakan of the burbs" in large part due to talented Patrick Feury.

A splendid recent meal featured crispy lobster dumplings and achingly good steamed pork buns, reaffirming Nectar as that rare impressive combo of substance and style.
