We stand divided over Pact, the sister restaurant of Kilo.
He thinks the Japanese-Vietnamese inspired menu was sparse and limited; I think it’s comprehensive and compact enough to pack a wallop.
He thinks the food was so-so and under-sized; I think the dishes we had were interesting and creatively flavourful.
He thinks Kilo has a winsome offbeat venue; I think it’s great that Pact is so much more accessible.
He thinks the world of Kilo’s perfectly secluded ambience; I think Pact is wonderfully casual yet chic.
Conclusion: He likes Kilo. I like Pact.
And I think we shouldn’t think so much over a meal, haha.
