Meet the Chef

Victor Liong and Chase Kojima

Born in San Francisco, Chase’s passion for food & exposure to life as a Chef started at a young age under the tutelage of his father. It was there he learned the craft of traditional Japanese cuisine, a discipline & attention to culinary detail that he has mastered through this career. At the age of six, Victor Liong emigrated from Malaysia and grew up immersed in the multicultural energy of Sydney. This cultural fusion of tastes, perspectives and experiences became his biggest culinary muse.

Louis & Kate were outstanding staff- professional & gr8 memory of customers. Dishes were gr8. We sat next to a glass-wall so was able to look at the transquil small waves of water on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Thank you for a gr8 lunch

First time visit. Loved the place! The food absolutely blew me away, as well as the cocktails which were unique. Will definitely come back. Our server was so lovely and helpful, and knew the menu very well inside and out. Thank you!

Lovely venue with a view. The chawanmushi is must try. Super tasty.

Great location, fabulous old building and delicious food. Chuuka is a welcome addition to Sydney's dining scene. If it hadn't been for one extremely pushy/annoying/patronising waiter, I would give this place straight 10s. Thankfully, the other waitstaff were friendly and relaxed and the food more than compensated for one over-zealous individual.

Delicious food - must get the ebi chili!! So lovely for them to give us complimentary drinks for a previous booking error - unexpected and very much appreciated! Would definitely come back!
