Whenever we get visitors we always go to lunch or dinner and have never had a bad experience there. The food is always fresh and there is a great variety.

Always plenty to choose from, unfortunately the meals could be a bit warmer. Tables a just a bit close.

Had lunch in the Eastern Tiger and I can seriously say that it was one of the worst dining experiences of my life. The line was literally 30 metres long as an additional function room backing onto the restaurant had been booked so there was...More

Huge selection of food to choose from at the Cardiff RSL. For $22.50pp this is a great find. I was amazed by the amount of choices provided to those who dine here. There is a vast array of salads, cooked vegetables, Asian cuisine, roasted meats,...More

This is my first bad review. I prefer to give positive reviews for places that deserve it. Would have to say it was the worst restaurant I’ve ever been too. Not one thing at the smorgasboard was nice. The worst food I’ve ever had. One...More

To be honest, this was a 2nd choice after my favourite smorgasbord was not open. Open arrival I found to be friendly professional and welcoming. As all you can eat standards go the bar for food quality is pretty low in general yet this place...More

I had high hopes for this place to be similar to Sizzler or Silver Dolphin...buuuuut I could not have been more disappointed. It's lucky they provide a 'throw away' bowl in the middle of the table because most of what you put on your plate...More

We had a celebration lunch and were very happy with the food and service. Contrary to the experiences of others, we didn't have to wait long to get a table even though we hadn't booked, and the food was fresh and delicious.

Bring the whole family along to the popular “All You Can Eat” Buffet at our famous Eastern Tiger Restaurant. In addition to a sensational choice of Chinese meals, there is a large and varied choice of roast meats, pasta, salads and traditional Aussie fare, including delicious desserts. There really is something for everyone! The restaurant is open seven days, every day of the year for lunch from 11:30am to 2pm and for dinner from 5:30pm to 9pm. The Eastern Tiger is an extremely popular venue of choice so we do recommend calling ahead to book a table, especially on Friday, Saturday and Sundays. The Eastern Tiger is located within Cardiff RSL Club. Become a Member of the Club for only $6.60 to receive Member’s prices in the restaurant and at the restaurant bar. The Club also has a children’s play area.
