I ordered via Menulog, which is probably the only good part about this. Delivery was 27 minutes later that the time indicated via the text message. The San Choy Bow was a grey-brown mess rather than the lively tasty mix I've experienced at other Chinese places. The lettuce leaves were also a little rubbery. The Chicken omelette was good, but...

Tucked away at the back of the North Lyneham shops, the China Tea Club is a Chinese restaurant worth seeking out. The decor is a little tired, but the food is very good. We recently enjoyed a very pleasant meal of peking duck pancakes, spicy squid, and stir fried beef and vegetables. The food was very tasty and the service... More

I went to the Lyneham China Tea Club, and boy did it leave an impression! Their food was horribly watered down and tasteless! Their beef was tough and had grizzle and their chicken looked pinkish. It was despicable how disgusting those dishes were. Being a "second chances" kinda gal, my partner and I actually ordered there again and it was... More

This restaurant is out of the way but this means that parking is easy. The food is good and we were impressed with the service.

Usually love this restaurant but today was a disappointment. Ordered wasabi oysters and out came mussels, but they insisted they were oysters. Not sure what is more concerning, the fact they didn't know the difference or they were lying about what they were serving. Good thing no one was allergic!

This would have to be one of the best Chinese restaurants in Canberra. Wonderful extensive menu with many out of the ordinary dishes. Great service and prices are reasonable. The restaurant is very spacious with no cramped seating and very family friendly. We have eaten here a number of times and never been disappointed.

I have eaten here with my family many many times and we have loved it every time. I highly recommend the King Island steak and scallops, Shan Tung Chicken, and mixed Chinese vegetables with bean curd. This is a very rare restaurant where, even when it is full with people, you can still have nice quiet conversations with the people... More

It's a pleasure to find a place where it's possible to hold a conversation without resorting to shouting. There is space between tables, too, so there is no noise interference between groups. The food is good, the prices manageable and the service efficient. This is not gourmet dining but good for a family or group night out.

There is a group of 6 of us who catch up every few months. We have tried many venues with varying degrees of success but we have finally fount THE one for this group. Round tables make conversation possible between all of us (including the 75 year old guest of honour). The food was great, we ordered banquet number 2... More
