This is our third visit to this restaurant, we go every time we visit Melbourne. The food is just amazing. The pork belly, is so tender and full of flavours. We had the $55.00 tasting menu, there was so much food we were unable to finish. I cannot rate this restaurant high enough. It can be a little noisy, so... More

Big chunks of meat so tender they fell apart at the touch of the fork, no fat, perfectly crisp crackle; served with a glorious Asian coleslaw that would've made a tasty meal on its own. Service was very quick on a Sunday afternoon and extremely friendly. Looking forward to returning to try dinner.

Maybe we are too old to enjoy this kind of experience, but after really strong recommendations from younger friends we decided to try this After a brilliant jazz concert we were really looking forward to another great experience. Although the service was great, we did not appreciate the communal high tables with wobbly bar stools or the loud music and... More

I'm sure glad they had my favourite wine in the world, Sav B! However I wasn't expecting any spice, and the tables were commune. I also didn't get to eat my curry with chopsticks. I really liked the tyre display. Could do with more hip hop on the playlist, and better wifi. Overall, it was a great lunch, and the... More

I came with some friends a month a go and we ordered different dishes to try as much as we could. The soft shell crabs were amazing and the pork belly was superb. Go there and try different dishes.

Excellent Service, Ambiance and Delicious food. A perfect afternoon lunch. Food was amazing, and our next visit will be for dinner. The food was different from similiar Asian restaurants, as was the interesting decor. Could be rather noisy if full capacity, but the atmosphere and the menu variety and the service would outdo any noise issues

Fantastic Fu(sA)sian of cuisines. There are 2 in Melbourne but this one is the best. There are 3~4 dining areas with different Asian highlights. My favourite is the large Aka-Chochin (Red Lantern) in the far hall. Day/Evening/Night are all illuminated well and kudos to the artwork in this area by a Melbourne artist ( I believe, certification required). The artwork... More
