Perth-based gourmets have a long standing love affair with Chi Restaurant, a Southern Chinese cuisine specialist with premium trappings, but if you haven’t yet experienced dining at Chi, now’s your chance to book some of the city’s most coveted tables. Standing head and shoulders above the competition, Chi’s Victoria Park premises – easily accessed along the Albany Highway – are designed to cater to diners with a taste for refinement. In the kitchen, artful East and Central Asian culinary techniques combine with fresh Western Australian produce to create signature delicacies like the range of ‘Breath of the Wok’ dishes that are along a major drawcard. Yet there’s more besides on offer. Bookings are essential.
Perth’s Chi Restaurant is masterminded by second-generation Chinese chef and gastronomic entrepreneur Man Yiu Wu, whose cheffing father cut his teeth in prominent Hong Kong restaurants before moving the family back to Perth in 1976. Passing on his culinary acumen to his son, Man Yiu quickly earned a reputation as a skilled cook of China’s finest regional cuisines. Always a major player in Perth’s Chinese restaurant scene, Chi is Man Yiu’s jewel in the crown, winning accolades since opening its doors in Victoria Park back in 2004. While maintaining a commitment to Cantonese cuisine, Chi’s menu is bristling with Chinese dishes that straddle the length and breadth of the great Asian nation.
Chi’s award-winning selection of Chinese specialties include dishes that must be pre-ordered (simply leave a note when you reserve online), something that already underscores Chi’s reputation as a truly gourmet Chinese restaurant in Perth. Live lobster, snow and mud crab and two-style whole fish are on the cards at market price, subject to seasonal availability, while the eight treasure whole duck, slow-cooked pork hock, and classic Peking duck served over three courses are legendary meat dishes. Also popular at Chi’s Victoria Park restaurant are the mouthwatering, brothy Chinese hotpots packed with basil chicken, beef brisket, roast pork belly, Chinese sausages and more, or the huge selection of seafood main courses. Topping many a food critics’ annual list, we shouldn’t have to remind diners that advance online bookings for tables at Chi Restaurant’s Albany Highway address are strongly advised!
Amazing!!! My favourite Chinese food in Australia. Love the sizzling beef and any of the chilli pepper dishes
CHI is one of our all time favourite places for a meal. Always has a nice vibe, is usually busy but the staff are on the ball & the food always comes out hot & quickly. Is not horrendously priced liked some other places either. Would recommend to anyone
The food is as good as I remember from when I first ate at this gem. Really nice welcoming owner who I had a great conversation with before my meal. Highly recommended on all fronts
