I recently went to Chans for the first time and I loved it!
They don't make Chinese restuarants like this any more and I'm sure some people would argue its for good reason but westernised Chinese like this definitely has a place in my heart.
The setting is incredible, I hate to think the real estate gold mine the property is sitting on and hope they never sell!! It reminded me of the Chinese restaurant they visit in Muriels Wedding.
The food is exactly what you're expecting in this setting and there is something comforting in that.
There was a large group of us and I think we had the $38 banquet, a fried dim sim, spring roll and a sang choy bao to start, all fresh and hot.
Then a bowl of some sort of combination meat with rice and a sweet and sour pork, I think it was.
Before salt and pepper prawns and I think a sizzling Mongolian lamb was brought out.
I like that with each round of mains there was a fresh fried rice brought out. Again the dishes were all fresh, well cooked and hot.
The service was wonderful too, they could not do enough for you.
I really didn't like the dessert of tinned fruit salad and icecream.
We also ordered a bomb alaska but wish we didn't. Both desserts were so sweet but that's alright, you don't go to chinese restaurant for dessert, unless that dessert is fried ice cream!
We will definitely be going back the next time we've got a craving for chinese like this!
