This was a family favorite growing up near here. So either my tastes and expectations have expanded since childhood, or this place has likely stood still in time. To be fair, the food is not too bad, pricey for what it is though. Beer glasses reminiscent of those my parents threw out in the 1970's. And decor to match. First... More

I have gotten take away from Choyan a number of times over the past feww years. I also have eaten in twice. It is a solid suburban Chinese restaurant. The food is fresh and the menu extensive. The staff are friendly and helpful with any requests.

We had a quick lunch on a weekday. Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. Great value for money. Generous serves. Good old fashioned chow mein, fresh rice noodles, singapore noodles, special fried rice, fresh chinese veg dish, e-fu style noodles. Friendly and fast service. Not too salty or oily. We will be back!

Excellent venue for a business lunch. Large tables & booths are usually not very crowded at lunchtime so you can enjoy a quiet conversation. The service is always professional and attentive. The food is consistently delicious - you must try the Peking Lamb fillets in pancakes - just the best. The lunchtime specials are also good for a quick, cheap... More

Choyan has been in Gordon forever, serving old fashioned interesting Chinese food for at least 35 years or more. The stairs up to the first floor have always been steep but now they have installed a chair-inclinator & a member of staff will assist you to the restaurant...too easy. A very pleasant evening with friends but I prefer to choose... More

Good old fashion delicious Cantonese cuisine, we loved all the dishes. We received complimentary prawn crackers for starters, fruit & dessert, plus fortune cookies at the end. Love the decor, this interior is back in style. One detail that we run into every visit- we get offered the booth seating but is a bit low for the kids.

Took our mum here to celebrate Mother's Day on Friday night. Service was great the waiter was happy cheerful and willing to help. Our food was perfect we all enjoyed every dish. The wine was cold and a great price. I had dessert and it was delicious. Frozen passionfruit sorbet. We were only visiting Gordon but will definitely be back... More

I've never actually been inside this restaurant but take away is great. Reasonable pricing, great taste and decent portions. Good local Chinese.

I will preface this review by saying that my family have been going to Choyan since it first opened many many years ago. The food is generally very good and all the people are very obliging and lovely. The restaurant itself is great but it has lost a bit of its wow-factor, it seems a bit tired. The tables used...
