In Perth, Chilli Panda in the CBD is where you can indulge in the city’s best Hunan dishes. A modern, peaceful setting awaits you here, and in addition to a great selection of food and stylish dining space, the restaurant also boasts a friendly, competent service team that is passionate about the delicious food they serve. The menu features a wide range of options including traditional cold dishes, chef’s recommendations, authentic main courses and a range of soups and noodle dishes. A true Chinese gem on Newcastle Street, book your table ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
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.
Quick and friendly service. Food is magnificent! Even though dishes have lots of chilli, they are not super spicy but very tasty. The black mushroom sir fried pork slices was our favourite!
Some of the best food I've had in a long time, very reasonable prices and BYO. Nice and clean, but atmosphere is a bit lacking. Make sure you try cucumber salad :) I definitely will be back for more
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.
