Best Known For
Asian buttermilk live lobster.
Expect your favourite Asian dishes served with a cheeky Melbourne attitude at Niubi on Heffernan Lane in the heart of the city. This is no ordinary pan-Asian restaurant hiding in the tight-knit lanes and alleyways of Chinatown, a sleek and upmarket design of blond wood table settings, exposed brick, arched windows and suspended bulb lighting sets the scene for memorable dining. With a slang name that shouldn’t be uttered at the table, take a seat and peruse a menu showcasing live seafood as seen in Singapore chilli lobster and mud crab; perhaps starting with an adventurous entrée of sweet and sour sesame jellyfish. For the main, try house signature garlic black roast pork, mixed vegetables and steamed rice, or kung fu roast duck; before a dessert of fried musang King durian and ice cream.
