  • Visitor Information

The New Diamond is a Chinese restaurant of the old school. You won’t find fancy decorations or gimmicky table service there, instead what you get is truly excellent Chinese food and, in our opinion, you can ask for nothing more. Chinese food relies on simplicity and high-quality ingredients, so when we ordered scallops in a chilli-soy sauce we hoped for tender, delicately flavoured shell-fish and we were not disappointed. The sweet and sour prawns were just as good, served in a sauce that, unlike some similar dishes had a good balance between both sweet and sour. The high point of the meal though was the absolutely perfect stir-fried snow peas. They were crunchy, delicate and slightly sweet: a great contrast to the smoothness of the prawn dish. There are a lot of restaurants in Chinatown and it’s hard to make a choice between them, but if you’re after high quality cuisine at a reasonable price, the New Diamond should be top of your list.
