    Love this restaurant - interesting dishes, cheerfully served. Enough space between the tables to not feel crowded so great for catching up with friends or a quiet dinner for two..

    Delicious food and great service. A lovely venue for family dinners. Highlight of the dishes? They were all fabulous and we really couldn’t choose which dish was best. Wine list is good too.

    A bit dated interior but the food was yum. Really enjoyed the diced eggplant with chicken mince. 10/10. The twice cooked pork belly was good with sugar snap peas and snow peas which gave some crunch 8/10. The Peking style chilli beef was not my favourite. I had seen photos of it and it looked so interesting but taste wise I found it a bit too jerky like and with the honey glaze on top it made it a bit too glunky 6/10. Overall a lovely lunch and plenty for a few meals at home

    This restaurant is the best in Canberra and in fact, if not in the whole of Australia. We have dined in several Chinese restaurants across the country in the last 10 years, China Tea Club is second to none. The food (with so many options) and presentation was great and priced reasonably. The service was excellent. The restaurant setup, wall decor was pleasant and inviting. We will come back! Keep up the good job.

    Always a hit at China Tea Club! I always get one of the take away banquets and it's always great. My first time dining in and it did not disappoint! The owner is very welcoming and friendly, the restaurant is clean and the service is QUICK! We ordered the soft shell crab and 3 other dishes. It took less than 10 minutes for everything to get to our table. Food, as always, was delicious! Looking forward to going back already! :)

    Best Chinese I've had in Canberra! Our friendly host was attentive without hovering. The food was so fresh, and the fried rice showed true wok hei!

    A pleasant surprise. We were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff when we arrived. The service continued to be attentive and prompt. The entree of Sang chow Bao looked inviting and was very tasty. Our mains were coral trout with ginger and shallots, chicken with cashew nuts birds nest and pork chop rock salt. All good choices. The pork chop dish was a generous serve and was nicely spiced.

    Better than expected in terms of ambience and quality of mains. Nice table settings, well spaced tables. Extensive menu with interesting options, including vegetarian. Let down somewhat by entrees (dumplings in short soup were stodgy) and service could be a bit more polished.

    A great few days for restaurants with Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day over a 3 day period. We avoided the rush by dining the Monday after and ordered our dishes off the Chinese New Year special menu except for our favourite entree which was the Chilli & Basil Mussels. All the dishes were great with my favourite being the Wagyu Sirloin in Terriyaki & Mustard sauce with zucchini, mushrooms and capsicum. I hope this dishes will be added to the regular menu. My only gripe was the Scallop on Tofu dish was served with long strands of fine vermicelli noodles only came out with a serving spoon. Good luck being able to help yourself to the noodles! ???? Delicious food, attentive waitresses and timely serving of dishes made it a great night.

    Service was good. Vegetables in the dishes were crisp and tasty. But the sauces in all of the dishes tasted similar. This is probably a case of personal preference and menu choice but I don't feel the food measured up to the reviews I read. Probably won't return.

    Probably one of the worst meals we have experienced at a Chinese restaurant. The pork ribs were deep fried, overcooked, fatty, and were accompanied by no sauces or sides whatsoever. They looked like leftovers, not worth $20 plus dollars. The combination omelet was $26 of overpriced overcooked eggs that was poor value. And to top it off, when we requested fried ice cream and were told it can be done, we were presented with the worst example we have ever had in quality and size, and then to top it off, were charged $8:50 each! The most expensive ever. Very disappointing, and we found it hard to fathom that you could even attempt to serve that quality of food. Ironically the service was good which left us puzzled! Thankfully we got 30% off with the fork otherwise paying full price for overpriced substandard food would have been hard to swallow.

    We were very grateful for outstanding service by China Tea, even on short notice. The diced eggplant & chicken breast was fantastic. Highly recommend this place.
