Meet the Chef

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.

    Lovely decor and wonderful views. Food was a fusion between Chinese and Japanese flavours which were unusual but delicious. The prawns were a highlight. Service was exceptional.

    Food is so so delicious and the view is amazing. I'd like to come back and just hangout in the outdoor bar for drinks and snacks. It's a great location. PS it's located on the lower deck of Jones Bay Wharf. Some Uber's take you to the top deck.

    Edwin our waiter took great care of us delivering exceptional service. He has such a great positive energy and enthusiasm for looking after us and ensuring we had everything we needed. We had a few requests regarding food allergies and preferences and nothing st all was an issue. It was seamless, exceptional service. Thank you to all of the team that made our lunch a great day out. The views are beautiful and loved the atmosphere of the old wool store at the end of the Pier!

    Excellent excellent food ! Wonderful spin on chinese/japanese fusion. However the setting at night was abit dark, with the lighting, black tables and black plates - had to use mobile phone lights to read the menus.

    Great staff, wonderful food, excellent location (albeit a little tricky to find) and efficient service. I will be going back for sure. Drove from Canberra to eat and it was well worth the trip.

    Chuuka is one of our most favourite restaurants- the creative and delicious food is exemplary and the ambiance is very pleasing. Superb and very impressive!

    It would be helpful to have the Specials of the day as an insert in the menu so we could give them proper consideration.
