Saw the Chairman & Yip post on facebook advertising their Valentine's Day special menu. Unfortunately, whilst there was two options only for the night - $65 / $95 I couldn't find details on their website on what each banquet comprised off so I chose the $65 option. This is the first time we have visited Chairman & Yip since their... More

Delicious food. Seven courses. We couldn't decide the best. Eggplant. Lamb ribs. Flavours exquisite. Balanced. Sparking Tasmanian Riesling. Desserts not quite matching the Asian flavours. High recommended. Staff were very very busy. The night of the 21st was Valentines Day- the restaurant was flat out.

We ate here for my birthday. Upon booking, 2 weeks before my husband requested a nice quiet table. When we arrived we were led to a very small table squashed in the main walk way. No room to even move a chair out. We politely explained what we had requested and were told that they were fully booked and nothing... More

A family birthday function close to xmas put us in a private room. The wait staff were sensational, the food delicious and the ambiance perfect. You will not be disappointed with the experience.

Menu was usual standard, that is very good and my friend was impressed with the food and the portions!. Were in early so wasn't too crowded but it got busy... More

Had dined at Chairman & Yip's old Civic location, so was interested in trying their new(ish) Barton location. Was not disappointed and all expectations were exceeded. Had the tasting menu with matching wines. Wow!! All 7 seven courses matched the selected wines very well. Asked for an extra course that was listed on a previous tasting menu; not a problem... More
