The opening of a new Asian restaurant in the Northbridge precinct may not sound like the most surprising event of the week.

But William Street restaurant Fu, launched two weeks ago, is bringing something different to a district dominated by traditional Asian cuisine for decades.

"Our food is best described as fusion of South-East Asian flavours," owner Chung Shing Foo told Gusto.

Mr Shing Foo says he recruited chefs from Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand to bring their expertise to the traditional local dishes.

"The restaurant is quite fussy about the authenticity of the dishes, but we try to modernise Asian food," he says.

Mr Shing Foo says North-bridge is ready for the concept he's introducing, particularly with to the redevelopment the area is undergoing.

The restaurant, located at Unit 1, 297 William Street, seats 55 people, and is open every day except Tuesday, for lunch and dinner.
