Chairman & Yip has moved into The Realm Precinct in Barton where it continues to fill whenever open and to provide excellent mainly northern Chinese dishes. Try the slow braised lamb if that is on the monthly menu.

Very good dishes. Was expecting normal banquet but they had a special seafood banquet running. Very generous amount of food at a reasonable price for the quality. Look forward to coming back to sample the normal menu.

The wait staff were attentive without being intrusive. We sat on the partially enclosed verandah with heaters. Very nice.

The Chairman Group nails good cooking and attractive presentation of Asian food. While I prefer Lilotang's Japanese and Lanterne Rooms' Malaysian fusion to Chairman's Cantonese, if you like modern updated Cantonese, Chairman is hard to beat. The seafood is beautifully cooked, in particular.
