Chefs unite for The Star Sydney’s first offsite restaurant

The Star Sydney has launched a new signature restaurant, Chuuka, marking the first off-property restaurant venture for The Star.

Helmed by chefs Chase Kojima (The Star’s Sokyo and Kiyomi) and Victor Liong (Melbourne’s Lee Ho Fook), the new venue takes over the location of the Flying Fish in Jones Bay.

The two chefs will blend the distinct flavours and techniques of Japan and China into “one visionary dining experience” featuring fresh local produce.

Dino Mezzatesta, CEO of The Star Sydney, says they couldn’t pass up the opportunity to open their first standalone dining venue, with the move part of the entertainment group’s ongoing transformation.

“As a beloved harbourside venue with unrivalled views, we knew that we could bring an exciting second life to the city’s favourite venue,” he said.

“We brought Chase and Victor on board as we believed in their vision and they have blown us away with what they’ve delivered.

“We are committed to delivering first-class experiences for our guests and I am excited to see the impact Chuuka will have on the vibrant and diverse Sydney food scene.”
