The Chairman Group has been one of Canberra’s hospitality mainstays over the last two decades. Since opening in 1992, the iconic Chairman & Yip restaurant in Civic has been serving up refined yet honest Cantonese food, attracting a loyal following of politicians and suits along the way. In 2008, the group (headed by Josiah Li) added the Lanterne Rooms to their stable, followed by Malamay in 2012; and both restaurants have been great successes.

It’s located in Barton’s Burbury Hotel and sits just two doors down from Malamay (with the door in between them being the hotel’s entrance), giving guests at the Burbury not one, but two incredible dining options without having to leave the building.
