Asian restaurants are a dime a dozen in Melbourne, especially in Chinatown’s tight-knit lanes and alleyways. But Niübi is no ordinary pan-Asian restaurant. A common phrase used amongst Chinese youth and netizens, the name is slang for “f*cking awesome”
A sleek and upmarket design with mastered service assumes the food offering will be fine dining-esque. But no, the thing that’s awesome about Niübi is that you’ll find the same Asian flavours you’ve always known and loved, but enjoyed in an ultra-modern setting reminiscent of Melbourne’s best recognised venues.
