The food was great. Sadly the staff decided to go home early. At 830 the kitchen was closing due to it being a wet Night. Then by 945 they staked chairs around us. We were not impressed then the staff decided to confront any criticism of being rushed out. After an expensive meal a real low end experience get better... More

I can only say that this was one of the best dining experiences we have had. The food was to die for, the wine choice superb and the service attentive but not in your face. And that Barra - OMG.

You cannot fault this place when it comes to getting what you would expect- good fusion Chinese fair in a cool vibrant City environment and good service. If you look hard enough you can see the same formula being applied as all other establishments owned by the same owners. But then again, it is a winning formula - so why... More

I stumbled across China Lane on a recent visit to Sydney with family. Being from the hospitality industry myself I can be quite fussy when eating out. I can quite honestly say that all my boxes were ticked. The setting, food and staff were all fabulous, as a matter of fact I commented to my dining partner that it was... More

Had dinner at this really nice Sydney restaurant again on a return visit to Sydney. The staff here are amazing, they make you feel very comfortable and at ease. The food is delicious, although I would have to say that the crispy pork belly was not that crispy, but was tasty and we had eaten it before and waxed lyrical... More

I have wanted to try this restaurant for a while and so glad I did! What a fantastic experience! We had the banquet - everything was delicious and very reasonably priced. The pinos gris from NZ was amazing. The staff were friendly and the setting was cool and sophisticated. I really rate this restaurant, we will be back! :)

I just ate at China Lane with a group of friends Saturday 2nd August. We chose the $75 banquet which provided ample food. The different choices available gave us many refreshing flavours rich in Chinese culture. From chilli & lime infused dishes, salt & pepper spices and the list goes on. The beer prices appear high, but if you choose... More

Oh The chicken wings, if these are not the greatest chicken wings ever than I haven't tasted the ones that are better. All the dishes are simply divine, the service is courteous, knolwedgable and a little fun. Great wines at a reasonable price. Well done to all involved as this place is special!

While on a business trip to Sydney my friend suggested we meet up at this restaurant. It is situated in a lovely lane way with birdcages [empty] high above the lane way. I was informed we were lucky to have obtained a booking given its popularity and I can now understand why. The menu was great for meat eaters and... More
