Koala Restaurant Shenyang Reviews
Koala in Shenyang Jan 03, 2010
"Koala" is a family run business, owned by a Chinese born Australian. The chef trained professionally in Australia for 5 years and ran his own successful restaurant in Sydney, before returning to Shenyang 3 years ago. It is a genuine blend of both Chinese and Australian. It is one of its kinds in northern China. The food is outstanding and 5 star, without the hefty western price tag.
The menu is genuinely Australian (western) with a great variety including steak, fish & chips, salads, pasta and pizza. The desert menu includes creme caramel, fruit salad and crepes.
The star of the menu is the Gnocci (in either a cream or a tomato sauce). It melts in the mouth, and is full of flavour. The perfect comfort food.
The restaurant is just one kilometre from the main shopping street of Shenyang. The best way to find it is to call the restaurant once you are in your taxi and ask him to explain directions to the driver.
"Koala" will also deliver to any place in the city. So, it's worth having the restaurant phone number punched into your cell phone (22828317).
The coffee is exceptional, the beer is cold, and the wine plentiful. The staff are all family members and the service is truly personal (the owner speaks perfect English). It's the perfect place to meet genuine locals, foreigners, travellers alike.
