Chinese Restaurants in Carlton

When the first Chinese immigrants braved the ocean for Aussie shores, the first businesses many opened were dining establishments for miners in the Gold Rush. Later, after immigration laws finally relaxed post WW-II, Chinese-Australian culture flourished, leading to a rich blend of two worlds right here in Melbourne.

Today, Chinatown lies in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, so the Chinese Restaurants in Carlton lie just North of its cultural epicenter. Much of the energy from Chinatown resonates throughout Carlton flats, giving locals dozens of options to choose from for a delicious Chinese food dinner. We would recommend visiting both the Chinese restaurants in Carlton and those in the CBD to get the full scope of the Asian food options Melbourne has to offer!
