    Originally from Asian background, I would have to say the food is strangely combined and mixed with Asian fusion concept with lack of authenticity. Most dishes were too salty at least for me and presentation didn’t match its ratings and money value. A bit of disappointment as I booked with expectation of high ratings seen from most food review websites.

    The initial 3 courses of the fixed price menu were good, the balance were very fatty and not very nice. I had herd very good reviews maybe it was just us

    Booking is essential, hard to find parking if you drive. Food is amazing and delicious. Unfortunately you don’t have the choice of a la carte but the set is nicely organized. More vegetables would be better.

    A great degustation menu with tasty food. Subtle variants to classics (e.g duck pancakes) added new flavours. And a quiet ambience with attentive waiters made this spur of the moment booking a pleasant treat.

    The food was nothing special, disappointing considering the reviews. Not value for money, we had the $75 set menu, minimal vegetables, small portions of meat, wine list overly expensive. There are much better restaurants in Canberra.

    The set menu was great. We could not eat all the full 7 courses and should have chosen the 5 course menu. The least favourite was the duck pancakes. All the other courses were fantastic.

    Attended one of my favourite Canberra restaurants for CNY celebrations. As expected, the restaurant had full bookings, but despite this, our table was attended to promptly and the food came out in a timely manner. The dishes from their $88 set menu was delicious as well! Overall, a very good night out!

    This restaurant is a classic, we have dined at the C&Y over many years when it was located in Civic and now at Barton, It’s food is consistently excellent we have never been disappointed. The staff are very professional, attentive but not intrusive. If you get the opportunity it’s a dining experience not to be missed.

    Pleasantly surprised. More fusion/modern Asian then Chinese food. Each dish was delicious with the standout being the crispy duck

    You always expect great service at Chairman and Yip and yet again it delivered on the promise. There was however only a fixed course option for dinner which sadly limited our ability to order several of our favourites but the staff at least managed to sneak in one, the eggplant dish - if you haven't tried it, you should! Combined with a good wine list makes it an easy place to continue to go back to. Looking forward to when the COVID-19 restrictions let them offer more menu options. Definitely a Canberra favourite!

    This has always been a very good restaurant but it excelled this night. Great food and excellent service at a reasonable price. The twice-fried eggplant was a standout. The duck pancakes, a signature dish here, were sensational

    The service was very good but the dishes on the set menu were a little bit of a let-down compared to what we had been expecting. It was good quality and there was plenty of it but we weren't wowed.
