The lunch specials are a good deal and filling! Fast to arrive and excellent customer service. Food was as expected, tasty, plenty and fast. Could even be a stopover on the way to Sydney rather than dull takeaway at the big chains. Don't miss the opportunity for a good feed.

We were walking back to our hotel and didn't know what we felt like eating. We stumbled across the Camellia and decided to give it a go. It looked like it hadn't been renovated since it opened but it was very clean and the staff were nice. The food was a pleasant surprise. Both the chicken and lamb dishes we... More

We were part of a group of twenty for a family celebration. The food was good, plentiful and reasonable value. The thing that makes this restaurant stand apart is the genuine friendliness of the staff. We had eight under ten year olds who got a bit feisty but nothing was too much trouble for the staff who also helped with... More

I recently enjoyed a evening Dinner at this restaurant with my 2 children, who eat like 18 year olds. Starter of ( Steamed ) Dim Sim's - Combination Chow Mien - Salt & Pepper Pork & Fried Rice. Of course a few VB's for me. I could not fault either the service or the quality of the meal. I must... More

Got takeway from this restaurant tonight - we ordered the beef and black bean, chicken with oyster sauce and the mongolian lamb and some spring rolls for starters. The chicken and lamb were lovely - very flavoursome and we all enjoyed. The beef and black bean was ok but we have had better - still quite nice. Spring rolls were... More

The Camellia is a really nice Chinese restaurant in Goulburn - it definitely encompasses the warmth and comfort of a country town, while offering delicious foods and good service. I've been here a few times and am never disappointed. It's also one of the few places in town that serve crispy beef - I highly recommend trying it with some... More

You want fancy cuisine and wonderful decor you are in the wrong restaurant. If you want honest, middle of the road Australian Chinese food in a 1970s setting (not retro, just unchanged since the 70s) this is your place. The old axiom of 'Go where the locals eat' rings true with this restaurant. If passing through Goulburn and you are... More

Stopped in Goulburn on our way from Nowra to Cowra. Decided to give this place a go and thankfully we did. The service was friendly and fast. I had a sweet and sour pork and my wife had the spicy Peking sauce chicken. Lunch specials ($8.50-$9.00) including fried or steamed rice. Very enjoyable meal.
