Asian
Coming Soon!
An intersection of East and West, Cha Ching is launching on October 12th and is
set to become Melbourne’s favourite new Asian-fusion restaurant.
Synonymous with luck in Chinese culture, Cha Ching is a project three years in the
making, from Owner & Head Chef Ken Leung.
From working in Hong Kong’s Michelin Star St George Restaurant in 2012 to
experience in kitchens across Melbourne’s elite food scene (Lucy Liu, Red Spice Road
and Silks Restaurant), Ken’s hospitality experience spans over 15 years.
The result? Cha Ching’s menu is an homage to Asian cuisine, emboldened by the
multiculturalism of Melbourne.
Street food with finesse and re-imagined traditional cuisine, every dish pops with
vibrancy and colour!

    The food was delicious, we loved every part of our meal. You definitely need to try the pork belly its value for money and super delicious. The beef steak was ok, kinda chewy and wouldn’t get again.

    We were first customers of the day so it was quiet but we had our little one with us so suited us fine! Food was yummy and portions were really good for the cost, great value for money and would like to come here again in the evening without the baby and sample all the cocktails :)

    Great restaurant in the CBD. The aroma therapy cocktail was delicious and the food was amazing. The crispy 5 spice pork belly was chefs kiss. Will definitely be going back again to try more of the menu.

    We were really excited to have food here. Wasnt really busy during our time. Kitchen forgot our food and i have been told that food is coming 4-5 times. Our seat was kinda small. Ordered thai milk tea but it was bitter. Food was overly sweet and not really authentic. We waited around 50 mins for food. Definitely not worth the price that we paid. Would be happier if manager could promise to provide a better service if we ever came back or anything. Really unhappy with everything. Really wish that manager could look at this and organize everything better next time.

    Pricing was okay, not filling for a dinner plan. Pork was over cooked, other dishes were nice just very small and underwhelming. Service was okay nothing too crazy, wouldn’t go back.

    we went to try the new asian fusion restaurant in flinders street! 😋 we were surprised to see how reasonably priced their set menu was! we only paid 45pp for dinner and it contained 4 smaller dishes and 1 larger dish!😍 quite a steal! our fav dish was definitely the five spice pork belly! love the caramelised flavour of the pork and it’s so crunchy!🥰 their jajang chow mein was also a unique find! though i think that the black bean sauce was a bit weak in flavour. would also recommend their crispy pork bao as it was good as well! their dumplings were a bit too spicy but it’s perfect for spice lovers!

    Food was good but nothing extraordinary that leaves you craving more. Would love if they put more sauces and/or bold flavors in their dishes. Very good deal with liven though ($25pp with drinks), otherwise it’s around $50pp.

    The service and ambience was really nice, came at happy hour and got the $2 oysters which were delicious and $13 cocktails which were okay. Highlights were oysters, salmon sashimi, wagyu and barramundi. Wouldn’t recommend the duck at all, despite its amazing presentation and being the most expensive item on the menu, it the worst dish. incredibly plain and the sauce gave nothing. Serving sizes for everything were really small besides the barramundi, so not the most amazing value for money. Wouldn’t come here again :)

    My friend wanted to try this restaurant as it had been popping off over social media. At first glance, the restaurant is tiny, loud, colourful and vibrant. The guests were loudly enjoying, you could hear the sizzle of the food in the open plan kitchen and it felt welcoming. Like you want to really see what’s happening inside. It took a while for a server to come and ask us about if we were ready, probably because my friend and got right into a deep conversation. The hustle between servers was really good though, as once we did order, they came and checked in and were really engaging with us. We ordered the mushroom bao, noodles and duck. Wow! so so incredible. The bao had a great balance between sweet, tangy, spicy and umami. A great starter. Then the noodles, which came out to us and looked interesting. However- don’t be scared, these are incredible. The duck was also beautiful. Tender, charred to perfection. My only drawback was that this experience without any drinks was expensive for what it was, which will deter me from coming back and making it somewhere i consistently return to.

    Party more than 6 are require a min spend of $45 per head which is not written anywhere in the menu. Or booking or anywhere else. Waitress told me I should have receive a text with it. But I checked both app and msg it didn’t say. So I was forced to order up to the min spend amount even tho we do not need to

    I could not recommend this restaurant more! The food and cocktails were absolutely incredible and at such an affordable price. They offer Feed Me Menu’s which allow you to have a taste of everything while sharing with friends. The freshness and attention to detail in all the dishes is hard to find around Melbourne, especially for such a low price . The cocktails were amazing, unique combinations that were so delicious and there are options for everyone. The overall ambiance of the restaurant felt so modern and classy, in such a good location. I will definitely be coming back!

    Food was ok nothing special. Some of the drinks weren't nice. Service was poor & it wasn't busy. We had wait long times to get service to order food & drink. One of our entrées never came & had to ask where it was. It then came after our mains. I would go again or recommend to friends.
