"The chef, New Zealander Miles Kirby, formerly headed the kitchen at the Providores and Tapa and knows his fusion fare. If there’s a cheerful irreverence about mixing and matching cuisines, there’s seriousness about flavor." READ REVIEW

"Caravan is, presumably deliberately, a catchall name where ingredients and inspiration are concerned, but dish components are put together tactfully and felicitously, with a rationale that has reference to taste buds and memories." READ REVIEW
