Tried a few restaurants over a couple of days stay in Queanbeyan and this one was probably the best service and marginally beat out the others for their service and good food. The sort of place you would expect to find in a country town where friendliness and a welcoming attitude go such a long way. Grace served us and... More

Always a good cafe style meal. Their Deep Fried Chili Beef is to dye for! Great value for money and the meal is always served quickly and the staff are very friendly.

Food and service have remained the same. There have been changes in kitchen staff so its good to see the standards haven't slipped.

The first time eating here was with a bunch of work colleagues, the food was lovely, so tasty and generous portions. We've been back since as a group which was great. Last time though I took the family which again the food was awesome but the fact that there's no atmosphere really stood out when your not in a large... More

We recently went back to the New Cathay after quite a long time. The food was really, really good and the service was very good, but there is simply no atmosphere. Also, it's not wheelchair accessible. The wine list is just OK but it is also BYO as well as licenced.

I normally order honey beef (pictured) and beef satay sticks. The satay sauce has enough spice without being too spicy.

We first stumbled into the place two years ago, thinking that we would give it a go and that looks can be deceiving...well, we were at an early dinner, only a few other tables filled, a dude walks in, dressed as a Pirate, with a Penguin on his shoulder....he was looking for a steak sandwich. Anyway, he was directed off... More

A small place, kinda shabby and basic, but clean. Friendly service. Run-of-the-mill Chinese food. Edible. My mind has already erased this non-experience.

I had take away from this restaurant and all I can say is that the food was wonderful. The portion size was huge and I couldn't get through it all. The ladies at the front were lovely and suggested what was good on the menu. As an out of towner, I loved the help. Will stop in again when I... More
