Booked in here for a business lunch and although I have been before, it had been a while. Externally this great Chinese restaurant looks low key, in a predominately residential area, walk inside and you instantly feel you have entered an upmarket Chinese experience. We chose the Peking Duck Banquet, and were not disappointed, small plates served as quickly or... More

Excellent food beautifully presented and an extensive good wine list fairly priced. I must recommend the scallops which are presented with 4 different sauces, and the Australian Shiraz !

Four of us went to Choi's recently for what is described as a modern Asian fusion dinner. We were very impressed with the modern black & white decor. It was a hot night & the air conditioning was lovely. We ordered one of the banquets which cost approx $80 per head. The food was fabulous - lots of small courses,... More

I know that dining at Chois will tick all the boxes. I have been dining there for over 20 years. It's an experience that you can take for granted as the service along with the food are always superior. Start with the beautiful hot towels, then my favourites like Garfish Royale, scallops done three ways and ducknin any form they... More

A friendly greeting at the door. Ordered the Garfish Royale - delicious. An old favourite Kang Bao Beef - outstanding as usual. Three Cup Sauce Chicken - a new one to us but maintained the high standard of this restaurant. We left having had a palate pleasing evening. We enjoyed the chicken so much that two days later we ordered... More

I keep coming back to this restaurant because it has good consistent food and the service is very good. They have all the usual Chinese dishes plus a few not so common like the Garfish entree, a must try. The Peking duck is very good too.

Had takeaway tonight and 2 of the dishes were substandard - the kambau(?) chicken pieces had cartilage (gross!) and the Szechwan prawns were definitely not fresh! Sorry Chois - after 10 years of loyal patronage, it's time for us to say goodbye!

Went back to this restaurant after an absence of several years The decor is plush and the welcome by Maitre D first class We allowed our senior waiter to order for us and were not disappointed each and every dish being great-- I guess the highlights being The Peking Duck and the Patagonian tooth fish-- almost certainly the nicest seafood...

Alas the initial ambiance and glamorous decor of this restaurant is deceptive. From the haughty pretentiousness of our waiter to the total lack of regard for my request for no dishes containing MSG this dining experience was anything but pleasant. There is NO provision for customers who are MSG intolerant. I was told all the food relied on sauces that... More
