Booked a table for six on a Monday night and were impressed by the friendly welcome and the large bowl of prawn crackers on the table!
The food was delicious, we each ordered a different dish - chop sticks at the ready, we made good use of the 'lazy susan' in sampling the food.
The decor didn't invoke a Chinese ambience, the two youngest in our party said that they expected to hear loud music at any moment and the appearance of vodka shots and that the restaurant had the appearance of an 'in town' bar!
However the food was a winner and the kung po beef declared the 'best ever'.
A bit pricey, but worth it!

We visited the New Rendezvous many times in its old location in Darras Hall and loved it. This is the third time we have been to it in its new Main Street location and there is something missing.
The ambience and setting is still nice, the staff are still welcoming and helpful -- but something has happened to the food. It lacks taste. We had a Garlic enhanced main and a Ginger based main. Both were insipid and lacked flavour. So disappointing. The food is no better than any other chinese restaurant. At best barely average tasting meals..

Yet another fantastic meal at the new rendezvous. The staff are always helpful and polite, the manager is one of the nicest men u will meet and the food is sensational. Definitely my favourite restaurant by far!

We visited the new rendezvous on a Friday night in March 2012. We had booked a table for eight however, they were absolutely packed so we did not get seated until 9. We sat in the lovely bar and the manager brought us a free round of drinks and prawn crackers to apologise.

The food was exceptional! I had the crispy beef and white chocolate dessert! delicious!

It is slightly pricier than competitors but well worth it and I can't wait to return!

We have been going to this restaurant for special occasions for over 30 years and, even though the premises have changed, this is still the best Chinese/Cantonese Restaurant we have ever eaten in. The food is hot, fresh and perfectly cooked, the atmosphere is intimate, cosy, warm and friendly and we are always greeted personally by the owner Kevin Liu, whose establishment is second to none. He calls it his Family Restaurant - and it certainly is - we feel like family even though our visits are infrequent. It is always full of families enjoying good food and lovely ambience. Slightly more expensive than average but worth every last penny! Every last detail is attended to - absolute perfection! Highly recommended but you have to book in advance - it's always busy!
