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!

    Experience was let down by poor service. They were slow and forgot one of our dishes and drink orders. They continued to question us when they got one of our orders wrong

    The food is amazing and soooo tasty. The best Asian fusion we have ever tried and among the best restaurants in Melbourne we have tried. The seating area is a bit small and noisy but colourful and vibrant.

    Very disappointed overall. I booked a spot at the bar and turned up 10minutes earlier than the expected time. Staff were poor in service but food and drinks were good. After paying and getting back to my hotel, I received a message that I was going to be billed $40 for not turning up. Which I obviously did and even said my name and booking on entry. I suggest for the price the Customer service needs improvement if you want to charge the prices you do. Also train your front of house staff on customer service to match the food, drinks and pricing charged

    We sincerely apologise for the miscommunication regarding your reservation and the subsequent charge. We value your feedback on improving our customer service, especially for front-of-house staff. We will address this with our team to ensure a better experience for all guests.

    Service is good but: Yum Cha is not steamed, rather microwaved frozen ones, tastes like the frozen ones from Costco or Woolies. Definitely not worth the value.
