Recently returned to china doll with some friends for lunch . This time the service was a bit slow and lacked attentiveness. We waited a while for our order to be taken after being told the kitchen would be closing very soon . The usual service of them pouring the wine was absent and missed. Food was as usual delicious...

Sunday lunch with 4 adults and one child. The staff were solicitous of the child and helped selecting foods that she would enjoy. The meal was very nice, the pork belly outstanding. Sadly it was raining, otherwise i think the view would be great.

Attended for Sunday lunch with friends...atmosphere is very posh...the venue is on the boardwalk of Finger Wharf where multi million dollar yachts and cruisers are moored. We were greeted and acknowledged by all the staff with smiles, no dull faces here...we were seated near the passing parade and enjoyed the winter sun. The menu is typical of a high-end eatery...we...

Met with some visiting overseas friends who wanted a great harbour experience, the food and service were great, nothing better than sitting down with good people and enjoying their company whilst being totally looked after by the staff and sampling delicious food

We had some dinner post a conference with some of the senior team and the Director. We ordered the banquet and boy am I glad we did. The meals came quickly one after another and I couldn't fault any of them. It was a real Asian fusion of flavors from tea smoked duck to red curry snapper but it was... More

China doll is the ultimate place for having Asian food with the special twist. The setting is breathtaking and the view is fantastic. Service is always perfect. The portions are big compared to other Asian restaurants.

What a great Asian influenced restaurant , the food was not only gorgeous to look at but divine tasting. Great atmosphere in a beautiful location with staff that offered 5 star service along with 5 star food that is so reasonably priced. Yum yum yum.

We had such a memorable dining experience at China Doll (for all the right reasons). The crispy pork belly is to die for, the service is fantastic and the location is perfect. The waiter recommended getting a half serving of pork as it was a big dish for two people - I love that the staff are honest and actually... More
