Hidden gem. Great selection of Chinese food, delicious pan-fried dumplings and xiao long bao. Excellent service, nice decor, big enough to go with big groups. My parents who were born in China regularly dine here and bring their friends. Would definitely go again!

Oh dear, this was the first place I have had to send a meal back ever. The chicken had lots of small shards of bone in it and was raw in places. The dish was dry with mostly brown onions for the vegetables. So disappointing. Please note that this restaurant is now, since October 2017, only Asian food. The staff were gracious and replaced my meal but the beef I ordered was disappointing too. Very rare for me to give a bad review.

Hello Julie R,

Please ask for boneless chicken next time you visit.

The dish that you had is a traditional dish that is requested.

I will ask the restaurant staff to advise our customers in future of the options.

regards,

Been to previous restaurant many times before it changed to Chinese, as a country visitor in the city for medical reasons. Was able to meet Family there as a central position. Meals were excellent, reasonably priced, Staff very friendly and helpful. Very disappointed whilst trying to make a phone booking, not aware that it was now Chinese Managed. Gave up and met Family there anyway. Greeting was non existent, Waitress pleasant but unable to explain dishes only understood " numbers ". Meals generous but two of four were cold ( should have sent them back ) Pay the fare : docket only shows item number, description in Chinese. Three couples ( overseas visitors)left with us without ordering. Were hoping for traditional Aussie club style meal. Very sad won't be able to enjoy or visit Club again.

Good morning bubbalowaggawagga,

Thank you for your feed back.

It is unfortunate that you did not appreciate our change of cuisine and therefore unable to look after you with a traditional [western] Aussie club style meal.

Perhaps you may try the restaurant again in the future and ask for JKY [yes, that's how he likes his name to be spelt] who will assist with guiding you in your selections of the extensive menu.


Regards,
RSLmngr

A week ago today 9.12.2017, we decided to see what was at City of Sydney RSL and had lunch there, as we were in the George St area. The catering is now Chinese, was Italian and Western food prior to that.
We throughly enjoyed a quick lunch entree of dim sims and mini spring rolls, then we had Singapore noodles. How tasty was this. I made a mixture of the sauces up, of the vinegar sauce, soy sauce and chilli sauce that was on the side, then mixed it through the noodles and wammo - top stuff, great taste.
Most prices are cheaper than eating at Chinatown and waiting for service. Our total cost for meals only as mentioned was $31.40 for two.
RSL Club runs the bar and nothing like a nice icy cold beer, from the tap, on a hot Sydney Summers day. How enticing and if having lunch - you don't need to be another RSL Club member from around the nation or State. Its straight in, off the street, up the elevator and there you have it. No language issue, all you need to do is have patience in describing things and you'll get through. Most of the staff speak and understand good English.

Visited as part of a group. Our waiter did not speak english and we had trouble ordering. The meal when it finally arrived was very disappointing. Others in our party had dumplings that were undercooked ranging to schetscwan soup so full of chillies that it was inedible. We will not be back.

Dear Jim,

I am disappointed that you did not enjoy your visit.

Rather than totally disregard a second visit, I recommend that next time you ask for the assistance of JKY to guide you through the extensive menu to select a range of dishes suitable to your taste.
