I hadn't been to The Chairman and Yip since they moved from the city to Barton. My only problem with the city was that the building was getting tired even though the food was still great. I spoke to one of the bosses who told me that the landlord didn't want to spend on the building so when the opportunity cam to move into a new hotel space they took it. Food still excellent and now surroundings up to the same standard.

Very large main dishes that were nearly all meat. Not overly tasty but ok. Would have preferred to pay less and get smaller mains but ok overall.

We were served by a waiter named Johnny and he was so good! He should be awarded ‘waiter of the year’ as he was so subtly attentive as to our personal queries re the dessert options and just generally very friendly and efficient.

Outstanding fine-dining Asian food with excellent service. The fixed menus are fabulous value. The Chairman and Yip group of restaurants in Canberra have been really wonderful for more than 25 years and still show a real commitment to giving their guests a fabulous experience.
Thanks so much Tony and thank you for your ongoing support of our restaurants over the years - very much appreciated!

I've never seen the use of ingredients like this in an asian restaurant - cummin, figs, Taramasalata. We had the tasting menu, plenty of food and a great variety. Some great flavours. Really enjoyed the fried eggplant dish. Very good service.
Thanks for your review Lisa, we are always so delighted to hear when our food is well received. Hope to see you again another time!
