The Best Chinese Restaurants in Melbourne
Chinese is one of the most ancient and varied cuisines in the world, yet it’s often oversimplified in Australia. Case in point: while Cantonese and Sichuan feature heavily here, they’re just two of the “eight great cuisines” (the others are Jiangsu, Zhejian, Fujian, Hunan, Anhui and Shandong). Indeed, despite Australia’s long history of Chinese immigration, some lesser-known Chinese cuisines have only appeared in Melbourne in recent years. And they’re largely in Chinese-community enclaves such as Springvale or Box Hill.
