The Happy Chef Chinese restaurant in King St Newtown went up in flames on Saturday the 24th of November. Firefighters were faced with difficult conditions, including wall collapses and 3 firies were hospitalised with non life threatening injuries due to falling debris.

Speedy recovery to those injuries firies! Several businesses remain closed as a result of the fire.

We are devastated to say Happy Chef will be closed until further notice due to a fire that has burnt down our restaurant…
