About Tian38

For modern interpretations of Chinese eats, along with a world-class cocktail bar serving some of Melbourne’s best drinks, head to Tian38 on Flinders Lane. Sleek sophistication awaits indoors, with vibrant green subway tiles highlighting the bar area and subtle downlighting and neon signage creating a moody ambience, best enjoyed with a cocktail in hand. With a menu embracing dishes encountered on travels through Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore, delve into plates like golden salted egg yolk chicken wings with curry leaf and chilli flakes, alongside spicy pork and prawn wontons with dipping sauce. Choose from a selection of local wines hand-picked to match the cuisine, or grab a cocktail to sip while enjoying barbequed honey-glazed char siu pork, with steamed rice and wok-tossed greens.

Look at my 3 Layer milk tea $8 Tian38 , it taste so good.??

We also have Singapore chilli crab panko jaffles $18, not too spicy, but filled with melted cheese as well.??????

Vegemite Rendang beef osso buco $45, i'm not a fan of Vegemite, but it doesn't taste stronger Vegemite, it became something better umami flavor.??

Goen salted egg yolk prawns $36, lightly battered toss with yummy seasoning.??

Mushroom truffle fried rice $22, full of truffle aroma, simple nicely done!??

Taro cheese cake $16, taro flavor is heavy enough, cheesecake is very smooth too??

Modern style and opulence and great service are the hallmarks of this revered modern Singapore / Chinese restaurant! Mouth watering menu & cocktails .. my fav Asian restaurant in Melbourne ????


Great place
Such a good place
Holy God the chicken wings
Met the owners really cool



Top restaurant!
The chefs at Tian38 have clearly put in an incredible amount of hours into expanding and translating traditional Singaporean/Asian cuisine into modern delectable dishes. It is clear that the highest quality produce is used in these creations, which is always a winner. This beautiful restaurant has an all rounder great vibe, with the dim lighting and balanced decor giving the place a warm and classy feel. Thanks Tian38 for always making dining in a pleasurable experience!
