Further Information

Perth’s CBD is awash with Chinese restaurants, mostly of the Canton variety, which makes Chilli Panda a gem in its own right. If you like your food spicy, you’ll have to check out this restaurant on Newcastle Street that specialises in Hunan cuisine, known for the heavy use of green and red chilli peppers, shallots, garlic and ginger in its dishes.

It’s not just the cuisine but the decor, too, that is a welcome change among the Chinese restaurants in Perth. You won’t find any traces of Oriental kitsch in Chilli Panda’s stylish and modern interior, as the owners have opted for wooden screen dividers and untreated concrete walls which are more typical of a trendy cafe. Start off with a cold dish of Hunan-style spicy dry beef, before you tuck into the best-selling Mao’s braised pork and spicy stir-fried cauliflower. Still hungry? Order one of the chef’s recommendations – such as the much-raved about garlic prawns in hot stone pot – and wash them all down with the restaurant’s signature aloe vera-laced jasmine green tea. Come on down to this Perth CBD hotspot within walking distance from Perth and McIver train stations for a fiery treat you’re unlikely to forget. Before you do that, you’ll want to reserve ahead for the best seats.

Loved the food. It wa relatively quiet so the service was speedy. Would like to see how they cope on a busy night. Would recommend to others. Especially the stir fry chilli lamb.

The location is handy and the decor is of industrial with high open beam ceilings. The food was delicious, service was great, I would recommend Chilli Panda!

Awesome food, friendly staff, great prices, what more could you want. Place is a little hard to find though, needs a big sign out the front.

If you love Chilli, then you HAVE to come here! Might be a little on the spicy side for non-chilli eaters though. Love the cuisine, very unique compared to the rest of the Chinese restaurants around the area.

Food at Chilli Panda is consistently good - tasty, fresh, not just "hot", although some is indeed hot. Try the green beans with pork mince - delicious, with beans as hero, enhanced by the pork...not drowned out by it.. Their Clay pot prawns are more expensive than most of their dishes, for a good reason - Chilli Panda use good quality, flavoursome crustaceans, not the usual, soggy-bland aquaculture horrors. A noisy venue when full. If you prefer quiet, enjoy lunch there.

This is a unique Chinese Restaurant (Hunan style cooking) . This is not your usual suburban type Chinese fare Australians are used to, but something totally different. As the restaurant name says it there is an leaning towards Chilli. There is also a sprinkling of "offal "receipes and if you dislike this type of food you can stay clear of it and still have a huge menu to pick from. The servings are big and the service business like and very prompt. The fact that the venue is frequented by all ages of Chinese people is a testement of its popularity/acceptance. Pricing is very good. The four of us shared three meat dishes with a bowl of Steamed rice each and we very very full. Our pricing was $66-00 all up. Will be visiting this venue again and again

Chilli Panda is definitely an appropriate name! If you're not a fan of chilli give this a miss. I however, love chilli! Fantastic tasting food. Great interior. Good service and not long to wait for the food. The only downsides were chicken dishes was meat on the bone, menu didn't explain this so one friend missed out on this dish. And we had to ask three times for the bill. Overall though a really good meal at a fair price.

Food fabulous!! Service terrible!! we waited about 15 mins for someone to take our order and that was after we called them over. Had to ask for the diablical music to be turned down so we could hear the waiters explanation about the food. Someone in the kitchen then turned it back up!! Again we asked for it to be turned down. Food arrived quickly and was beautiful. Not too hot. We then had to ask waitstaff to clear the empty plates.. we were not asked if we wanted to order more or desert. We did choose to order more food - again had to call a waiter.... food arrived very quickly and these dishes were REALLY hot - even the rice with soy had a chilli kick... the first rice with soy didnt!! Dont order the squid - very fishy taste. Again had to ask waiter to clear empty plates. Owners - how about a manager or yourselves be on site to make sure wait staff are attentive. Did not appear to be anyone in charge keeping staff on their game. Yes we will go back but if service terrible again, thats it!!!

This is an wonderfully low-key and casual attitude inner city Asian restaurant that bangs out great food with big flavours and a relaxed vibe. The chilli content is for enthusiasts and if you're at all sensitive, ask them to dial it down a few notches, but those of us who love the zing, pop and crackle of high intensity chilli bombs attached to fresh, full-flavoured meats, vegetables and sauces will be in heaven. Try the beans (steamed, then flash-fried for a few seconds) for a mild but deep taste sensation. The pork belly doesn't just promise to melt in your mouth - it actually does! Service is friendly-casual but helpful without being intrusive. Take 3-4 friends to share a range of exotic dishes that will have you talking about this place for days.

Food was magnificent as usual, service was a bit slow but it was Friday night and the place was busy. I am still working my way through the menu, everything so far has been great. I Highly recommend Chilli Panda.
