A highly accomplished chef, Adam Handling brings his love of Asian flavours and techniques – particularly Japanese – to his kitchen. His beautifully presented dishes start with careful sourcing of top quality, seasonal ingredients, prepared in a number of different, creative ways to enhance their inherent properties and deliver real depth of flavour and harmony.

With dishes such as ‘Crab Doughnuts’, to ‘Beetroot, Beetroot and More Beetroot’, diners can expect to be both surprised and wowed by the ingenuity of cooking techniques and flavour combinations on offer at The Frog. With innovation at the core of Adam’s cooking, he and his team have also developed a drinks offering to match. Guests can expect to sip on craft beers from selected micro-breweries, new age wines from young winemakers, curated cocktails and even in-house made kombucha, either at the restaurant tables or at the wooden-topped bar.
