I love China Doll, is my favourite restaurant in Sydney and every time I go there I enjoy so much. I usually get the banquet and everything is just delicious.

The food here is outstanding. We had the banquet and the chef was happy to change out a dish for a beef curry dish. While I don't usually eat seafood, I found all the dishes here perfect. I still dream of the pork belly. The wine selection is also divine. The service was, however, clumsy. Dishes were not well spaced,... More

It was my first time dining at China Doll with my partner. I booked approximately a week in advance and kindly asked for a table next to the water with a heater as it was a special occasion (being an anniversary). Upon my request they did state they are heavily booked and would do their best to accommodate to my... More

Savored every mouthful of this delightful modern Asian experience with the banquet for 6. Stand-out dishes were the steamed half shell scallops with ginger & shallot (yum), pork belly with chilli caramel & nam pla phrik (unreal) and the dessert selection (oh yeh!). Had champagne to top it off. Very reasonable price for the view, quality food and impeccable service... More

We decided to go to China Doll for a 30th birthday dinner, it was cold Sydney winter's evening, with light rain. We were greeted at the door with a smile and were immediately taken to our table. We opted for the $89 each banquet, which was a great choice as all 4 of us enjoyed each and every dish. China... More

As it has been said so many times in previous reviews this place is amazing! The setting is right on the old Finger Wharf in Woolloomooloo. There were 4 of us having the $69 banquet p/p for lunch on a Sunday. Some of the dishes were scallops, calamari, chicken salad, pork belly, barramundi and a dessert platter. Every dish was... More

Believe all the reviews here, this restaurant is outstanding. I had a meal here last weekend, ordered the banquet for 2 at a cost of $62 each. I cant say enough about how fresh and interesting the choices were ginger scallops, pork belly, chicken salad, red curry, zuchinni balls and more (cant remember) and desert was passionfruit sago and coconut...

China Doll has always been up at the top of fusion/Asian cuisine in Sydney. The menu is an eclectic mix of Asian styles from Chinese to curries - but with a subtle flair for western palates. The quality of the food is amazing and while I have dined there many times I am always impressed with the dishes that have... More

Visited this with friends and enjoyed every bite, every sip of the amazing cocktails and even when something was missed ( we didn't notice as everything felt it was time perfectly) we were apologized to fixed up in seconds and a spread of deserts was fashioned for us to make up for it at no cost.
