Asian
Cha Ching is an Asian fusion concept restaurant where customer enjoys variety of Asian dishes on a table with Asian spiced drinks and cocktail for an affordable per dinner and lunch.
Synonymous with luck in Chinese culture, Cha Ching is a project three years in the making, from Owner & Head Chef Ken Leung.
From working in Hong Kong’s Michelin Star St George Restaurant in 2012 to experience in kitchens across Melbourne’s elite food scene, Ken’s hospitality experience spans over 15 years.
The result? Cha Ching’s menu is an homage to Asian cuisine, emboldened by the multiculturalism of Melbourne.
Street food with finesse and re-imagined traditional cuisine, every dish pops with vibrancy and colour!

    Great food, but very noisy atmosphere. Everyone pretty much screaming at each other talking, and the place is quite small.

    Won’t be coming back, waste of money, the food wasn’t fresh made we order stuff that didn’t come to the table, and before that we had to wait for 15’ until someone came to table and take the first order
    Cha ChingResponded 5 days ago
    We're devastated to hear your visit fell short. Long waits, missing items, and freshness concerns are not the standard we wish to provide. We're making swift changes & hope you'll reconsider us.

    Poor quality food, served cold when order to cook. Poor service even there were only couple of tables. No value for food.
    Cha ChingResponded 5 days ago
    We're very sorry to hear about your experience. This falls far short of our standards. We're taking immediate action to improve food quality and staff training. We hope you'll give us another shot.

    This was great concept and overall we still enjoyed the food and experience. We were served 2 rounds of raw dumplings, one round some of us ate some and that's how we discovered the chicken was raw. And not slightly raw, raw as in it hadn't been cooked at all. We also were not served the things we ordered during the 90mins AYCE. There was a influencer at another table and they clearly had the full attention of the staff and therefore mistakes were made with us. The first staff member we had was hard to hear and did things without explaining like take our menus while we were in the middle of ordering. Another staff who we switched too was fantastic. Clearly busy but was very friendly and did their best to rectify our orders. The food we had that was cooked was delicious and the drinks were fantastic. Hopefully just a learning curve and hope to attend again once they have found their feet.

    Thanks for the feedback! We're glad you enjoyed the food and concept overall. We sincerely apologise about the raw dumplings and missed items - we take this feedback very seriously and that is definitely not the experience we wish to provide our customers. We'll be sure to address and investigate these issues with the team. We appreciate your understanding and hope to see you again when we've made these improvements.

    Exceptional food, left very full and will definately be coming back. Every meal had its own unique taste and always wanting to go back for more. Cocktails were showstoppers and so cool. Service on drinks was a bit slow but made up for it with the food.
