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!
Great Food . Excellent Service and Crispy Skin pork in clay pot. The rice was fresh and the crispy duck in plum sauce was great as well.
Highly recommended! The food is consistently fantastic and Chi has been (and still is!) our family's go-to Chinese restaurant for years. The portions are great too and the service is amazing.
Good food, good and friendly service. Complimentary soup to start with was a nice gesture by the restaurant on a wet and cold winter evening.
Enjoyed the good very much. Nice change to the stock standard "Chinese" food that you can find all over the place. Chefs recommendations are always good too!
Service was excellent. Two of my friends were quite late coming to the restaurant. Staff were polite and patient with us (the early ones). We ordered the entrée whilst waiting for the other two. Eventually they came and enjoyed the food tremendously. Moira, who has not been at Chi before, commented the excellent food to the young lady who served us that day. Keep up with the wonderful service.
I have to give this a miss for 6. Although the waitress was polite and obliging, she did not give us forks/knives/spoon when satay sticks were served, only chopsticks. She said that forks/knives/spoons would only be given during the main courses. It was hard to eat the satay sticks entrée as the meat was too tough without the fork to "drag" the pieces from the sticks.
service was attentive. Pleasant ambience. We ordered 5 dishes for 6 adults and they were adequate. The special of the day recommended was very good We had the cuttlefish stirred fried with chive flower, 3 wine basil chicken, braised beef brisket, yam duck, long beans with sambal all turned out well.
My in laws love this place! It is our new go-to Chinese restaurant in the Vic Park area. Owner Manny is very involved and usually has good recommendations for food so feel free to ask
Excellent food with great suggestions from Many . We had the Peking Duck followed by dishes suggested. Ingredients are always fresh. Would happily recommend to anybody who wants Asian food without the gloopy sauces
Food was good. We made a reservation and somehow ended up being seated next to the waitress station which was a bit annoying since the couple before us didn't have a reservation and got a much better table. But all in all nice staff and nice food.
Haven't been to the restaurant for some time now, but food and service are still just as good. The restaurant gave our table complementary soup which was unexpected but greatly improved our dining experience at the restaurant.
Best Chinese food in Perth. The menu offers a great range of choices and not the usual Aussie-Chinese fare. The restaurant is nicely decked out with a friendly ambience, good service and very fair prices. And BYO.
Food was absolutely delicious. The only downfall was they ran out of a few beverages we wanted. Then they ran out of sweets. But the food was brilliant so we look forward to going again.
Food was good but we waited awhile for our food - few of our dishes had to be returned - one was cold and the other had egg in it when we specified no egg. Also starters and main course came together
The food was great - including the complimentary soup while we waited for the meal. The service was also great - on hand but not in your face.
Always excellent food and service. Serving sizes were impressive. Waiter suggested a number of options and choices. Ambience, clean, friendly and accommodating. Definitely will be coming back
Fantastic Service and amazing food. Definitely worth a visit ! I highly recommend the Kung Po Chicken and Roast Pork Clay Pot. Ten out of Ten.
Love the crispy beef! The pan fried cod is yummy too and we always go for the long beans with mince and sambal. Our new regular.
The food is really nice, the environment is good and the staff is friendly. My family and I really enjoy a lots, next time I will visit that restaurant again
Excellent choices on the menu with something for everyone and superb friendly service, we will be back again. The complimentary soup was a nice touch.
