The New China Restaurant is an older style, decor wise, Chinese Restaurant but the food was great and the service good. Surprising though .... there were no chopsticks to be had

As regular visitors to Castlemaine, we make a point of dining here each time. The menu is very extensive and all the dishes we've tried have been delicious and good value. The restaurant has a lovely family vibe and the service is fast and efficient. I must make special mention of the deep died icecream which is spectacular.

New China has been in the same location for about forty years so this on it's own is testament to the splendid food and service that one expects but rarely gets. We have patronised the New China for approximately 25 years and use it as a yardstick for other Chinese restaurants. NONE can hold a candle to this, the very... More

I took my elderly grandparents for dinner while visiting from Sydney. Our waiter was attentive and able to help with any queries made. The food was delicious and the portion sizes acceptable.

This restaurant is located near the motel we stayed in so was convenient as well as having delicious food. We phoned our order through and it was ready to collect when we got there. The food was just delightful - will be happy to buy our dinner there next time we visit Castlemaine.

Dining at Danny's restaurant was always something to look forward to when we lived in Castlemaine for 20 years. The first time we tried crocodile was here, and it was cooked amazingly in a garlic sauce. The Lemon Chicken is the BEST LC we have ever eaten. EVER. Bar none. EVER. No individual pieces that are fried to oblivion hell... More
