Chinese restaurants are a dime a dozen all over Melbourne and if you happen to be looking for one with a Cantonese flair in Hawthorn East, Asian Chef is your answer. Conveniently located close to the intersection where Camberwell Road meets Burke Road and Riversdale Road, this neighbourhood hotspot boasts an extensive range of vegetable, meat, noodle and rice dishes to satisfy every craving. The bestsellers, however, are the ones you shouldn’t miss. Stir-fried BBQ pork, Peking duck and the signature fried rice are just a handful of specialities that keep regulars coming back for more, so why not stop by Asian Chef to discover all it has to offer? Reserve ahead to avoid disappointment.
Pretty busy for an early Sunday evening dinner. Our booking was at 5.30p.m. The food was above average. I liked that they weighed the live seafood selection in front of the patron so it was transparent as long as the scale is accurate! The restaurant was busy and the service could be more attentive.
It's a quite clean place and many luxury nice fresh seafood. Quite big dishes and good services. It's rare to find a Asian restaurant like this in this area. We had a good time.
The restaurant had tasty food, helpful service and a nice atmosphere. Quiet enough to catch up properly with friends. Would return again. Conveniently located as well.
