The Star Gold Coast is set to open its new flagship Cantonese restaurant, Uncle Su, in early October.

Uncle Su will offer a rendition of classic Cantonese cuisine, created with local Australian ingredients and a coastal sensibility. Uncle Su will be located at the entryway to The Star’s new tower opening later this year. The restaurant’s name is inspired by the respected term of Uncle in Chinese tradition, a name that perfectly represents the authentic Chinese family dining experience it seeks to create.

Executive Chef Song Yao Su has perfected his craft over 35 years working in the world’s finest restaurants. He learnt skillful techniques from one of Hong Kong’s most revered and decorated chefs, Pui Wing Hui, cooking alongside the master for over a decade including an impressive tenure at Las Vegas’ invitationonly residences, The Mansions. At Uncle Su, he will bring together these decades of experience with his own cultural heritage.

Live seafood will be the real star of the show; guests will be greeted by a spectacular display of fish tanks, filled with locally-sourced lobsters and crabs. Queensland groper, barramundi, abalone and coral trout will also be throughout the menu, all sourced in accordance with The Star’s evolving sustainable seafood strategy. Tea will be an integral part of the Uncle Su experience, with a tea connoisseur on hand to guide diners through the extensive menu and provide insight into the deep history, traditions and flavours of the tea.

Created by award-winning local architecture and interior design practice, Plus Architecture, Uncle Su takes its design cues from respected Chinese tradition, the Australian landscape and the quintessential energy of the Gold Coast. Uncle Su will be situated within The Star, located in the idyllic suburb of Broadbeach on the Gold Coast and just a 90-minute drive from the centre of Brisbane.
