St Kilda's Mahjong redefines Asian dining with its ultra-stylish interiors, stunning park view and innovative combination of Yum Cha and classic Cantonese fare. The modern restaurant is divided into two distinct dining areas, spoiling diners for choice with a casual Yum Cha dining area in the front and a more formal a la carte restaurant in the back. Expect plenty of seafood on both sides of the dining room and a lengthy wine list to match.

Mahjong is located in the popular suburb of St Kilda, Melbourne.

Walk into the front dining space which decorated with oriental ornaments contrasted with playful neon panels. The music is energetic, the atmosphere is casual. and the food is exciting.

Just when you want to have a more intimate dinner. The back dining space is perfect for that special mood. The decor is contrasting with the front. It is 'opium dark' with deep red furnishings.

Bright and energetic with floor-to-ceiling windows Mahjong is a place to be seen. Up front, the mood is playful - this is a hip, modern eatery that offers an excellent selection of fresh, quality yum cha.

No longer confined to a weekend lunch, order from an extensive dim sum menu that includes steamed and fried dumplings, soups, baked pastries, and stir fried dishes such as duck san choi bao, barbecued roast pork and shredded beef in mandarin sauce. Items are separated neatly into steamed and fried sections to make choices easy, and there is also a dedicated and varied vegetarian section.

In contrast to the bustling front room, the rear dining room is a more intimate space, with deep red furnishings and subdued lighting giving a touch of glamour. It is an excellent room to enjoy a more leisurely dinner, with a sense of both calm and occasion. Head chef Wah Feng (previously at Crown’s Lucky Chan) presents a range of modern Cantonese dishes that maintain a fine balance. They are fresh and interesting, and presented artfully without seeming overwrought. Try light and tasty seafood dishes such as prawns stir fried in ginger and mint, or scallops with garlic shoots and chilli. There are also traditional flavours such as steamed eggplant with chicken mince and black bean, or spicy beef in Szechuan sauce. For dessert, custard tarts in a light and flaky pastry base are still the top choice, while mango pudding and black sticky rice are also worthy and delicious contenders to finish off a meal at Mahjong.
