Meet the Chef

Neisha Woo

Neisha’s journey at Rockpool Dining Group began when she joined Rockpool 1989 in 2014 as Chef de Partie. Determined, she walked into the restaurant with her resume one day and was given a trial. Not only does the Korean chef successfully keep busy tables turning at Spice Temple Melbourne, but she climbed the culinary ladder to become the restaurant’s Head Chef after 12 months as Junior Sous Chef. Her rapid rise through the ranks comes five years after graduating from Le Cordon Bleu in Sydney.

Great service but could be a touch more attentive Filling sparkling water with flat - trying to get some extra serving cutlery but being a touch picky Food excellent although lamb ribs overspiced with the dry rib spice

Food was very nice definitely visit again. Not sure what happened with our service everyone around our table got thier food before we received ours. Must have been a slip up somewhere. Wasn't that fussed because the food was good.

About Spice Temple

Turn Up The Heat If there’s one thing Neil Perry knows how to do, it’s how to win the hearts, minds, and bellies of his patrons. Just like Perry's other successful food forays, Spice Temple, in Melbourne’s Crown Casino has locals head over heels in love. Created with business partners Trish Richards and David Doyle, Spice Temple is dark and dazzling, with rich toffee-hued lighting, comfortable seats and dark wood tables. Like the fit out, the food is just as dramatic and allows diners to explore Perry’s interpretation of Chinese cuisine. Heat, spice, sourness and saltiness - they’re all present - with Perry opting for authentic and robust over safe and polite, every time. Tea-smoked duck breast is rare and succulent, fish fragrant eggplant is crispy, spicy and sour - a must try. For dessert, it's difficult to go past the chocolate and peanut parfait - a favourite of many. Oh Mr Perry, it’s always a pleasure to have you in town. Few would disagree. It’s time to spice things up. Best dish: tea-smoked duck breast
