Mad Asian Restaurant and Bar
Mad Asian Restaurant and Bar is located on the second level of The Kitchens at Robina Town Centre. Owner and chef Stanley Lee (who is also behind Saiko Teppanyaki, located at both The Kitchens and in Fortitude Valley) serves a vibrant share-style menu that combines Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian, Vietnamese and Mongolian flavours. The beef tataki with pineapple, coriander and chilli is a good place to start, before moving to signature dishes like the lightly fried scallop salad with honey-yuzu dressing and the Mad Grandpa prawn curry with green beans and chilli. Want to spice up your life? Go for the fried chicken wings with (very) spicy garlic sauce, or the authentic and punchy Chinese mapo tofu – they both pack a decent punch. As for the drinkables, you’ll find a hefty list of Asian-inspired cocktails on offer, as well as a respectable collection of sake, Japanese whisky and small-batch gins.
