This place never disappoints. Great food, first rate service and quality wine list. The shantung lamb dish is my all time favourite main and the panna cotta as always supurb. So lucky to have such high quality food digs in this city.

I loved the food and the service at Chairman & Yip. It has been my best meal in Canberra. The duck pancakes are amazing. Beef and scollop pepper hotpot and Shantung lamb belly were also knockout dishes. Elegant surrounds, attentive staff and seriously good food.

We booked a large table for a family birthday. We had a banquet and can highly recommend it. We had a few dietary requests and they helped out wonderfully. The service is great, highly recommend it.

Just a casual lunch with some work colleagues but, yet again, the staff, the food and the whole experience excelled. I had my favourite duck pancakes (yes, I admit, a double portion - which is four largish pancakes which I couldn't finish, but had a...More

This is a Canberra institution and one where the quality of the food and service match the significance of some of the other guests. The food is well-matched to Australian palates and appetites, with attentive and professional service to match. A generous wine list is...More

The food here is absolutely top notch. We loved every dish (except the dessert which was a let down). Service and knowledge of the food was excellent. Matching wines were well selected. All in all, a really great evening!
