We went for dinner on a Saturday night but they were full, so we just grabbed a take away. Delicious! The lemon chicken and crispy chicken wings were especially nice. We'll definitely return having made a note to self: make a reservation!

Sunday night tea, oh what to do? New Asia takeaway buffet was the answer , $10.50 each for medium sized containers, more than enough. You pick what you want but some dishes were low and only veg and sauce left , never mind cheap and cheerful huh. Not sure if if all dishes prepared on site but ok

If you want a Chinese takeaway that's really tasty with a good variety of dishes and especially well priced this is a great place to try out.

Just discovered this restaurant last week and have been here twice. First for a buffet takeaway (perfectly fine) but then on Sunday for a dining experience. I've eaten typical Chinese food all over the world and New Asia is right up there with the best of them. Lemon chicken, Beef Satay and Sweet and sour pork were fantastic and the... More

Choices of dine in or takeaway, we chose takeaway. Three different sizes, small, medium and large packages, suit our size. All yummy, fried rice, sweet and sour pork, lemon chicken, black bean beef, fried chicken for three person in three boxes. Yes, you can do combo in your package. Next time will try another menu.

While the atmosphere is a little 'staid' the different styles of Chinese food dishes are very authentic and tasty. The food tastes not a great deal different from that enjoyed in China or Hong Kong. Definatley a world apart and better than the bain marie food available should you require a cheap fast take away. The full menu take-aways are... More

We had takeaways from here and while my husband enjoyed most of his, I found mine to be pretty tasteless. They have fill your own containers for a pretty reasonable price, and I chose fried rice, noodles, chicken and vegetables, beef and vegetables and lemon chicken. The lemon chicken and beef and vegetables were good, but the rest of it... More

Five of us decided to have tea before the movies as we have had really yummy takeaways from here before it was a no brainer to have tea here. That's where we were wrong. Meals came out sporadically 15 minutes between mine and my dining buddies. Some were cold. One meal was uneatable. The dish we were sharing came out... More

Has been over a week since we ate at new asia and cannot remember to much about it so i guess that just means it was average. I had the kungpo chicken which we order "Hot" ( it wasnt to bad and cleared the sinuses) and dumpling all was ok just a little different to what we get down in... More
