The ingredients on every one of Aløft's dishes, Tasmanian treats spanning from woodear mushroom to koji beef, are expertly prepared and married with unexpected Asian flavours in skilful, delightful combinations. Tender sweetbreads are pitch perfect with a bright bouquet of Vietnamese herbs and fried shallot, sharpened by an intense Thai relish. Yellow fish curry arrives plated tall and striated: egg floss, taut snapper and a splash of tawny sauce over  magenta beetroot straws. But then the ingredients start to socialise, the plate takes on a paintbox sunset swirl, and the combined sensation - oceanic, tart, creamy, downy, springy, crunchy - is unforgettable. The chefs also rehabilitate satay from gluey nadir to a light perfumed pepita-crunchy sauce that embraces rich, melting duck. The wine list, an intriguing and enticing range from very near and very far, teams with knowledgeable and patient service to ensure a winning finish.
