We hadn't been to the China Tea Club for some time so were pleased to find that it was still quite good. Our starters were quite tasty, especially the duck pancakes,which were quite good. For old times sake we tried the Honey prawns, which tasted as good as ever but there was less in the serve than what we expected.... More

Friends have raved about this restaurant and the delivery aspect and online ordering appeals so we gave it a go tonight. Really unimpressed with the food. The fried rice was very anemic in colour and flavour, although a nice sticky texture. Crispy chicken with honey sauce wasn't de-boned so not great for our young kids. The prawn crackers were stale.... More

We regularly get take away from this restaurant. They do delivery, which has always been timely and reliable. The food can vary a bit, sometimes outstanding and other times not very good. But on average it is ok. We really like the Crispy Chilli Beef Peking Style, although once it had way too much added chilli.

The China Tea Club is tucked away in North Lyneham, not far from Canberra's Asian restaurant 'hub' in Dickson - but with far more, easier parking. Over several years, we've found the service to be extremely efficient and friendly. The menu is quite extensive and interesting, and the dishes are consistently delicious and good value. The wine/beer list offers a... More

Went to this place with the family for lunch, the service is very slow, despite there were only 6 other customers in the whole restaurant who have already been served. We were wondering why the slow service, then a bus full of Chinese-speaking tourists arrived, their food got served very quickly and they finished their meal within 15 minutes. When... More

The China Tea Club is our local Asian restaurant and it is seriously good! The King Island Steak with honey and pepper sauce is a firm favourite. Paired with stir fried snow peas, sugar peas, and mushroom with a honey glaze ... Wow, great stuff. Keep up the great work guys.

My wife, family and I went to the China Tea Club in North Lyneham for a birthday celebration. There were five of us in the party. The service was great though not intrusive. The meals were delivered in good time. From the entree of Sang Choi Bow (delicious) through the the deserts, the entire meal and experience was fantastic. Try... More

As locals we've always enjoyed special occasion dinners at CTC Lyneham in northern suburban Canberra. After 1-2 years since our last visit, have to say that it's better than ever. Food absolutely first class - the King Island Beef, scallops, greens and noodles in pepper sauce is unique and just superb as always. And the chef doesn't mind special requests.... More
