Anyone need a romantic backdrop for dinner?

Although located in the bustling Sydney city Westfields Food on Five, where you are spoilt for choice, this restaurant displaces you from the crowds and settles you into an atmosphere that almost encourages the making and keeping of secrets between lovers (maybe how much food you can really consume?).

Chinta Ria: Mood for Love lives up to its name, and though I haven’t yet watched the famed movie from which this restaurant is themed and inspired by, it’s too easy to feel as though you’ve been dropped into a Chinese movie set. Menus are presented as movie scripts in envelopes while a projector plays film clips and quotes on one wall – there is an obvious nod to the feature film’s context and this creative touch is refreshing. The dim lighting, wooden furniture, tableware, accented colours of red, clean-cut bar, and quintessential Chinese items like the humble water jug and ceramic vases encases you in a sensual, brooding, opulent, mysterious, and somewhat homey atmosphere.

Each classic Malaysian dish on the menu has a name. I loved the cheekily-named, sweet mocktails and the mains were delicious also but portions slightly small. The Asian desserts were surprisingly not so sweet but tasty nonetheless – definitely recommended!

Romantic dining, lovebirds!
