Enjoyed a relaxing lunch with family. Had the dim sum lunch which was a little different to the traditional dim sum we’re used to. Beautiful location and friendly service

The food here is simply outstanding, generous helpings and incredible flavour. The pan fried duck dumplings are the best I have had and the lamp cutlets are worth a visit by themselves.

The waitstaff are super welcoming! Excellent menu knowledge and superb service. Food was excellent and good deal having UNLIMITED package YUMCHA menu during Easter long weekend. Definitely UNIQUE menu items and most of them we can only taste it in Cinnabar. Talked to the chef and realise that most of the items (90%) are housemade. Number 1 YUMCHA of my list in Canberra!

We arrived at 8;00 they were packing up. We chose this place as it was close to foreshore but all outside seating was packed up... it was a really pleasant warm evening.

We were glad to be able to book here for Christmas Day. The premises is tastefully decorated. The music played (from Youtube) it seems was a little overbearing, with no real continuity and with no song ever finishing. Front of House service very welcoming, however table service seemed a little ambivalent, leaving the impression that the young fellow didn't really want to be there, did not engage with us with a description of the food that was brought to our table. Overallt eh food was excellent, the pork belly might have been a little dry, but made up for with the Becalan chilli sauce. We thought the pricing was reasonable given it was Christmas day. Portions were more than adequate.

Long term regular customer. Have had many great experiences at Cinnabar but the most recent one was below average. Staff were non attentive, confused and frankly lacked care factor. The food was not up to the standard I have come to expect from the restaurant.

The restaurant was quiet for a Saturday night. There were plenty of staff available to help out. The only issue was they did not have good english and had trouble taking our order. We also ended up with food at our table that was not ours even though there were so few people in the restaurant. We had the banquet, a little pricey but the serving size ok. We could have had more rice. The entrees were great and delicious but the mains average and not innovative or true Asian Fusion. The webpage needs updating as the pricing on the menu was not what was advertised on line so that was a little bit of a slightly more expensive surprise. Great to try but doubt we would make it a regular favourite.

Restaurant was very quiet for a Saturday night, though it seemed that the whole foreshore was quiet (could have been the wet weather). We were sat promptly and offered water, and given food and beverage menus. Staff were very attentive and pointed out the share menu. Drink service was quick and once we ordered the share plates were bought out promptly. Food was well prepared and tasty and was a good variety. Overall we had a lovely evening with good food and company, even though the restaurant was fairly quiet.

Had a tasting menu for $65 per head. Entrees were fine but mains and dessert were lacking. Could not see much evidence of modern Asian fusion. Mains were unimaginative for a tasting menu - fried chicken, fried rice, fried cauliflower, beef brisket. Did not like their desert either. Would have preferred ordinary icecream over their coconut. Icecream concoction.

My partner and I were seated in the middle booth with amazing ambiance and scenery. Food came out really quickly and the service was unreal. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an elegant night

Visually it ticked all the right boxes, but the food let it down. The soup lacked seasoning and the fried rice with roast pork and prawns had just two prawns. We did mention this to the wait staff and we advised this was correct - very disappointing. The Singapore soft shell crab with crunchy noodles also a disappointment eith a curry style sauce drowning the noodles and the crab barely swimming above.

Food was great. Came out relatively quick and every dish was perfect. Has a great view of the water front. Inside aesthetic was really cool as well. Great spot for groups.
