New dining precinct fires tastebuds at Canberra Centre
Dec 20, 2022
Canberra’s food scene set to sizzle as the sophisticated Tiger Lane dining precinct opens at Canberra Centre, helmed by celebrated chef Shaun Presland.

Promising some of the most exciting food experiences in the capital, Canberra Centre’s new pan-Asian dining destination, Tiger Lane, unveiled its first venue in November with the launch of Japanese Yakiniku and Shabu-shabu restaurant Taki. 


Part of a 2000sqm precinct that is set to host a dozen distinct food and drink venues, Tiger Lane will showcase Japanese, South Korean, Chinese and south-east Asian cuisines in a buzzing day-to-night setting. With culinary direction by award-winning executive chef Shaun Presland (ex-Rockpool Group), the concept asserts Canberra Centre’s reputation as the capital’s most compelling dining destination.


Daryl Stubbings, QIC's Director – Australian Investment Management, commented: “As the city and communities of Canberra evolve, the appetite for engaging new-to-market dining experiences is only set to increase. Tiger Lane will help to activate the CBD's night-time economy as well as draw locals and business visitors during the day, cementing the status of Canberra Centre as a dynamic culinary destination while enhancing work life for occupants of the recently remodelled 224 Bunda Street."


Presland’s signature Japanese fusion restaurant, Inari, will open later this month, followed by a further 10 new venues in the first half of 2023, boosting the centre’s already strong appeal for cuisine-loving locals, office workers and visitors.
