I have eaten there several times with friends when in town over the last few years and have not had a bad meal. Value for money prices and usually great service. It is a shame that one staffer who seems to do the early week shifts consistantly puts so little effort in representing the restaurants point of contact and from... More

Food was good and the waitress very friendly and helpful. Menu had plenty of variety in Asian dishes. Nothing to dislike.

Visited this restaurant for the first time and was not disappointed. Considering how full the restaurant was the service was very quick, food is exceptional and the staff very friendly and obliging. We will return.

I've been here a few times for dinner, and I am yet to find a fault in this restaurant. It's service is great, awesome food and comes reasonably priced. Only wish it was open for lunch!

The food is always great, but this means a long wait for takeaway. We have had food from here often and always have 30 to 40 minute wait.

While the service was quite good, the duck was dry and my daughter had mild diarrhoea from the steamed dim sims. On top of that it is no longer good value - a rather basic meal for two was $50.

Great Chinese food, and great service, can't speak more highly of the New Cathay. Despite its popularity, they have resisted the temptation to put their prices up by too much. The restaurant itself is nothing special - I think they must have decided a long time ago to let their food do the talking, which it does! The people working... More

Great value meals and great service. It is our regular and we never have had an ordinary meal. The deep fried chilli beef is a favourite as well as their Singapore noodles. Really friendly staff who make you feel at home.

This restaurant is what I call 'Aussie Chinese', where wanton soup is still called 'Short soup' and there are no chopsticks in sight. The menu shows no influence of the modern trend towards more regional Chinese food (Szechuan, Peking etc.), but relies on the more universal Cantonese style food that can be found in most countries around the world.

Great food, good service. New Cathay does great dine in and takeaway meals. The food is good and the prices are low.
