The Star to launch new Jones Bay Wharf restaurant

For the first time ever, The Star is going off-property to launch its latest restaurant headed up by two superstar chefs in July this year.

The Star's new signature restaurant, Chuuka, will take over an iconic location in Jones Bay Wharf, previously home to iconic Sydney restaurant Flying Fish.

Headed by Chef Chase Kojima (pictured left, from The Star's Sokyo and Kiyomi) and Chef Victor Liong (pictured right, from Melbourne's Lee Ho Fook) Chuuka will mesh the distinctive Japanese and Chinese flavours into a new dining experience.

Chuuka will feature a 130-seat dining area across two levels with a spacious wine room and views across the Sydney Harbour.

Chief operating officer at The Star Sydney Dino Mezzatesta says Chuuka represents the company's transformation into a luxury hospitality group.

"We couldn't pass up the opportunity to open our first standalone dining venue on the iconic Jones Bay Wharf," says Mezzatesta.

"As a beloved harbourside venue with unrivalled views, we knew that we could bring an exciting second life to the city's favourite venue."

"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."

Chef Kojima says the new restaurant has pushed him to create food that is completely innovative.

"Victor and I have really enjoyed being playful with this new menu inserting both our own signature flavours and cooking styles while challenging each other to create something totally new," says Kojima.

"I am at my best when I am in the kitchen cooking with others and with The Star they encourage that freedom of expression and collaboration."
