Food is always excellent. Portions are on the large side, always fresh and tasty. Sometimes the service can be a bit haphazard but it doesn’t really detract from the hustle and bustle experience.
Love Spicy Fish. Always great food & excellent value. The menu caters for all tastes & spice levels. The staff are always prompt & friendly.
Great food. Plenty of it. Only complaint is the over the top corkage fees.
Spicy Fish Restaurant Melbourne is a restaurant designed for you. As in, quick Chinese bites are available if you need to pop in, eat and be gone again in 15 minutes, but the restaurant is also perfect for a long and leisurely feast. On Little Bourke Street, the restaurant itself is simple yet stylish so we always recommend taking the time to enjoy it. Kick things off, perhaps, with the sliced beef in a special five-flavour sauce, the very authentic chicken feet with a white vinegar sauce or some pan-fried pork dumplings.
For your main at Spicy Fish Restaurant Melbourne, the fried soft shell crab with crispy garlic is popular among many who frequent the CBD. The chef’s also recommend the shredded duck meat with ginger, shallot and dried beancurd as well as the salt & pepper lobster tails. For something you probably won’t have tried before however, order the Shanghai-style braised crystal shrimp or the scrambled egg white with diced fish and scallops. As we said before, Spicy Fish Restaurant is one of the most authentic Chinese restaurants in Melbourne CBD and it’s popular for very good reason.
