    Casa Chino is a brilliant new restaurant in Brunswick. Fabulous food (especially the Dan Dan noodles and the calamari) and the service was outstanding. Will absolutely be returning when friends visit from out of town.

    We did the $53 pp menu. I was really happy with the ceviche and the cucumber salad. Oysters were small but tasty. And the chicken wings were okay. Disappointed with the main. Steak was a bit tough and not a generous amount to share. Came with plain rice with chips with it. Found the presentation to be a bit disappointing. We all found the whole menu just lacked something. Possibly the main. There were four components to the entree but really only one main. There were chips in the main and the only side was… more chips. Something else needs to be served with it. We were sat at the high table indoors - friends on the other side of the table is a bit too far away, which made it difficult to hear and you had to be loud. The dessert was disappointing - we had the egg custard buns which were a bit meh. Not a good way to finish the meal off. You kind of wanted melted chilli chocolate to dip the bun into. Or something… more. The $43 (cheaper) set menu had fried rice (more flavour) and cheesecake. The cocktails were great. I had the coffee espresso one with whipped coconut cream and nutmeg - REALLY good. And the Rumba something - the sweet/salty combo was excellent. The service started off well, but there was not many moments when someone came to check back on us - and we had to flag down staff to get more drinks. Speaking off which, an alcoholic drink was given to a non-drinking friend and vice versa - not great when they discovered it by drinking it. Only 3 weeks of opening, I hope it’s just teething issues. The menu needs a tweak to be a favourite. If we return, we would order something different.

    Hola Gemma, Thanks for your review. We're sorry to hear your evening with us fell below our usual standard. The best way for us to continue to grow and improve as a newly opened venue is with honest and genuine customer feedback. This has been passed along to our head chef, who will be reviewing our $53 set menu. We would love to hear more about your evening and how we can continue to improve. Kindly email bookings@casachino.c om.au. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to make amends. Kind regards, Team Casa Chino

    What a fantastic experience! This restaurant is top-notch with delicious food, amazing cocktails and excellent service! Our host and server, Mel, truly went above and beyond to take care of us. We had some dietary restrictions (vegetarian, dairy/gluten allergies), and Mel made sure to accommodate our needs with a smile on her face. The entire team was fantastic, and even the chef made sure our requirements were met. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning!
