Nest opened in early 2015 and forms part of the Shangri-La’s Hotel Jen, conveniently located near the Roma Street bus and railway station. Chef Mark Young focuses on share-style plates with an Asian twist, like tea-smoked duck, five-spiced pork belly and sticky beef wontons, plus deep fried peanut butter ice-cream for dessert. It’s a big space so the restaurant is good for groups – you can order an all-in feast to pass around the table. The bar area at the entrance, decked out with green studded-velvet lounges, is a cool spot to hang for a relaxed drink and serves a range of tap beers and cocktails.  Don’t forget to look up to see the haphazardly spiky nest creation dangling from the ceiling.
