Time Out says

The brainchild of two avowed fans of Asian street food, Rice Paper Scissors is a casual dining concept bringing together Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese and Singaporean flavours. The owners encourage diners to eat with their hands, which makes sense given a menu featuring mini banh mi, betel leaves and steamed pork buns; other popular dishes include the sticky pork belly, crispy barramundi and duck salad with fresh banana blossom salad. A choice of five dishes between two people is $59 at lunch and $69 at dinner, with an entirely vegan menu available. The restaurant also makes cocktails infused with South East Asian flavours: we’re talking a Lemongrass Tom Collins, a Bloody Mary featuring spicy Chiang Mai relish, and a Mekhong Mule with Vietnamese mint and lime.
