Around the bend from St Kilda’s foreshore and in full view of Albert Park is Mahjong; a delightfully contemporary interpretation of Modern Asian and Cantonese Yum Cha dining. Its presence along the bustling Fitzroy Street strip is a delicate seasoning in the hot stews that is a well-rounded St Kilda dining scene.
A full glass wall shopfront provides a mirrored view into an expansive restaurant. Inflated mah-jong tiles line up in a neat row at the doorway as a characterising feature and the interior is decorated with communal tables and imposing oriental, room dividing columns painted a lacquered emperor red. The space is bright; the music is energetic and waiters weave between the tables to accentuate an upbeat and casual atmosphere.
Its urbane fit out and fervour welcomes diners for any occasion so don’t gamble with your Yum Cha cravings; satisfy them at Mahjong!
