Despite the name, Secret Kitchen has quite the reputation in Melbourne. As one of four outposts under the moniker across the city, this CBD location maintains the restaurant groups A-plus scorecard, providing reliably slick and sophisticated service.
Menu-wise, don't expect any major surprises — this is simply traditional Chinese cuisine done really well. Seafood is proudly the main focus here, which is evident in the menu (each species has at least a dozen options) and the enormous fish tank by the entrance. Dessert doesn't disappoint either — expect deep-fried durian puffs and steamed custard buns fashioned as cutesy pig heads.
