Good food, good view, attentive staff. A very pleasant experience and would highly recommend to friends, families or couples. Very ‘Sydney’ with water views and great selection of food and wine.

Two of us came here for lunch & had the banquet for two. Scollaps, fritters, curry, pork belly, rice, chicken & cabbage salad, San choi bow & dessert. Definitely go on an empty stomach. Amazing fresh taste & great service. Can't wait to come back!

I think China doll is very good food. The meals are unique and they are very flavoursome. My favourite are some of the curries or the duck pancakes! Not a fan of pork belly anywhere, but everyone seems to like it too

We had a group of 6 in our party and decided to have the banquet. The food was hot, and tasted fantastic. Every dish was beautiful, and the service was impeccable. The only negative was the servings were quite small, so I left hungry which...More
