Our Story

Tian38 – A contemporary and progressive approach to Chinese cuisine. Paying homage to Chinese cuisine of yesteryear whilst asking ourselves what the next step is in its evolution.

Enter Tian38, simply a translation from “Shop38”, a nod to the simple naming convention for many restaurants throughout Hong Kong. Tian38 is a simple reference to our restaurant and bar in the heart of Melbourne’s Flinders Lane. A place where cultures intersect and diversity celebrated. Tian38 stakes its claim in contemporary Chinese cuisine and sets a new standard for cocktails.

Tian38’s menus are ideal for your quick business lunch or paced a la carte meal and comprehensive banquets.

Our Cuisine and Beverages

The cuisine of Tian38 focuses on our interpretation of dishes we’ve encountered through our travels in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. Dishes such as our masterfully roasted wood smoked Peking duck, free range Hainan chicken, Kurobuta char siu pork and Singapore chilli crab are just some of the culinary delights at Tian38.

Utilising the best in Australian sourced produce, our team combines quality ingredients with masterful culinary craftsmanship to bring out the best in time honoured recipes whilst providing our own interpretation of classic Chinese.

Our wine and cocktail bar is no after thought. With a selection of local wines hand picked to pair our cuisine and signature cocktails crafted to impress anyone’s palate. Our Mandarin Sour, Tian Sling and Applewood Old Fashioned are just some of our playful interpretations of great drinks.
