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

It had been awhile since we had dined at the China Tea Club and we noticed the difference as soon as we walked in the door. A complete makeover, new paint, new wall decorations and a revised layout all very impressive. The big question, was the food and service going to be as good as last time? The service was... More

I love this place. Great tofu, spinach with mushrooms, and vegetarian fried rice. Nice ambience. Good service. Big servings.

This was actually the worst meal we have ever eaten. The peking duck was tasteless and had the consistency of peking duck that had been cooked the previous day, frozen and then thawed. The chicken skewers had giant pieces of stringy (???) deep-fried chicken. Hard to eat, and not nice in the mouth. The main was lacklustre. We did not... More

Perhaps early to write a review, as its based on one set of takeaways but.... Delivery was cheerful and on time. Ordering was easy. We had roast duck, shantung chicken and mixed greens with mushrooms. The duck was OK, but not as moist or flavourful as, say, Kenny's in Dickson. The chicken was disappointing - bland. The veges were OK,... More

So excited to be dining here as I recalled the quality and selection of the food from our last visit. A little disappointed unfortunately. The menu has changed which is good in the sense that it shouldn't be same,same forever, but .......... I found myself looking at it over and over again, finding it hard to select the dishes that...

Wide, varied and interesting menu, plenty of choice and different from the usual Chinese menu. Food quality and service was excellent. The décor is upmarket and interesting with plenty of space around the tables for a quiet conversation. Easy, no hassle, parking on site. Good value for money.

The restaurant was humming and it was a good sign to see it busy on a Thursday evening. The service was pleasant and obliging. The menu was interestingly varied. Our choices were presented well and were tasty. The tables are not too close together so we did not feel our space was intruded upon. It was an enjoyable experience.
