Enjoyed China Doll, the staff (James) were excellent and very helpful. Serving portions are excellent and as a result, we over ordered. The Duck and the Pork are both great dishes but you probably wont need an entree or any starters,

As always China Doll delivers a superb dining experience. Our international guests were delighted with the food, location and superb service. My favourite is the tea smoked duck on the banquet. Oh and the desert trio is a must.
