Great food, great wine, and great service is "New Wind Restaurant" and what Chef Tuan is all about.

"New Wind Restaurant" opened in 2001 and was two times winner of the Stonnington Business Awards for Restaurants (2003 and 2004). Other recent articles where New Wind have received local and national recognition include the The Age's Cheap Eats Guides, being recommended to Australians as one of the top restaurants with top quality and low price foods. "New Wind Restaurant" quickly became known to the locals and visitors to Melbourne that this restaurant specializing in Vietnamese and Thai cuisine was a "must" spot to dine. The dream of a lifetime, we wanted a place where we could work together, draw from a culinary background and focus on their passion "Cooking". Of the utmost importance to us is to share with our guests the love of fine food and create an atmosphere where they can relax and enjoy a level of hospitality that makes for a memorable dining experience.

Chef's Background

Chef Tuan has lived in Australia for 14 years. He has lots of experience in hospitality industry. And his skill and dedication results in the success of New Wind Restaurant. Apart from cooking, Tuan also entertains diners with his piano and paintings that decorated the wall of "New Wind Restaurant". He invites people to visit his Art Gallery here.

Restaurant's Design

"New Wind Restaurant" design approach is an open plan where the guests can capture a glance of each of the adjacent spaces throughout the restaurant. Chefs Tuan wanted to have a touch of Asian charm and the flare of the modern Western bistro reflected in the design of his restaurant. A large plasma TV in the corner of the restaurant was selected because of the playful expression of the modern style, with an eclectic twist. Delicate soft mood lighting is used to highlight the original paintings done by Tuan. A piano in the corner also deliberately chosen to complement the artistic feeling. The overall decor of the restaurant is done in warm apricot colors of orange and natural shades of black which is softened by greenery. The combination of the colors and the open feeling of the restaurant creates an atmosphere of warmth and historic charm for the guests of "New Wind Restaurant", where they may enjoy fine food, a selection of fine wines and a heightened level of hospitality.
