Run by the same crew as China Doll (the best restaurant in Sydney), China Lane is guaranteed to not disappoint. The food is delicious. The service is superb. The prices are a little high, but the experience is well worth it. I always recommend China Lane/Doll to friends.

Arrived without a booking on a Friday evening, were lucky to get a table for two outside, even though it was quite a cool night the heaters kept us warm. The waitress went through the menu and advised us to share, good plan! Sashimi, pulled pork, Singapore ribs and steamed wonton. A nice bottle of red. Great evening

We walked into this restaurant. On Anzac Day and were with the 4 of us. It was an unplanned dinner and for me as a coeliac this can often be difficult. I normally call ahead to see if they can cater for my needs. Well, I'll be back at this place for sure. They were so flexible and made the... More

This is the kind of place that is ideal for family, friends or work. For a client lunch on a rainy day when we all arrived late, not a problem. Choose the dishes for us? Not a problem. We only have just over an hour. Not a problem. Just perfect. Second visit. Won't be the last.

The service was good, but by no means would I rate the food as being excellent i.e., it was just average. The outdoor dining area is pleasant though and if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main city bars you can enjoy a quiet dinner here.

This is by far one of the best Restaurants I've ever eaten in. Not being a regular fine diner, the menu was a bit overwhelming, however the waitress made ordering so easy and was extremely obliging and helpful in ordering. Chef sent out a couple of tasting platters and the lounge was really relaxing
