    Very disappointing, we've been to this restaurant many times and unfortunately the quality of food dropped significantly. From modern sophisticated and very tasty to intense, heavy and oily food. The chilli garlic prawns tasted more like a sweet and heavy curry.

    Staff very welcoming & attentive. The food was superb especially the Duck pancakes & John Dory & the Chinese Broccoli dish was amazing- never had it that way before. Wine reasonably priced.

    I have eaten at Cinnabar on my last 2 visits to Canberra. Absolutely delicious. This time we had Banquet A, which made choosing dishes much easier as everything on the menu looked good. Service was excellent and well-timed and the whole meal was very well-priced. Looking forward to my next trip to Canberra and Cinnabar.

    We left after reading the menu as it was nothing like what was advertised on their website. High prices and very limited choices. Certainly not your standard Chinese cuisine.

    Great ambience and tasteful decor. Tasselled booths provided cosiness, though table height could be lowered for easier dining. Cocktails excellent and the banquet is value for money.

    Great food. Shanghai pork dumplings are definitely the best in town.

    We had the banquet A (min 2 people). Each course was delicious. The duck entrée was a stand-out. The service was excellent. And were very accommodating for our toddler.

    Lovely food and great service overall. New waiter needs a little more training but his bumps were smoother over by other staff. Food was delicious, star of the night was wagyu beef with ginger and wasabi.

    Excellent service and great food. Pan fried dumplings are delicious and Mongolian Lamb is the best I have had. They have some booth tables if you can get one it’s great.
