My wife and I cannot fault the quality, service and price. Everything we ordered is to die for and very filling. If you like Chinese this is 10 steps better in flavours and dining experience. You will not be dissapointed, I promise.

We were a party of four, who had all dined here before. On the occasion of my birthday, we requested that the chef choose the menu. The best Spring Rolls and Prawn Dumplings to start. A plate of Salmon and Kingfish , raw, was a great success, as fresh as the day itself. Our usual favorite, Beef Shin in Penang... More

My friend took me here for lunch. The food was fabulous. Service great. We went on a Sunday- it was busy, so make a reservation if you can. The food is on the pricey side but consider your location and the quality of the food and it is well priced. We had some dumplings and broccoli and Sang Choi Bow... More

We love China Doll, location on Woolloomooloo wharf is second to none, service super friendly and attentive, a great buzz to the always packed atmosphere, food never disappointing. Be prepared to pay but definitely worth it!

Our family have been to China Doll on numerous occasions and have always been impressed with the attention by the staff to service. We have never been wanting and the food is some of the best modern Asian we have tasted throughout the world. We have also found the wine selection covers our requirements in taste and value. The location... More

As per usual China Doll was acceptable. Ok food, barely reasonable service, great outlook. My party of 5 indulged, enjoyed and rang up a tab that would make most restaurants happy. Then without being informed we got nabbed for a $3.30 surcharge per person on our credit cards after leaving more than an acceptable tip. The paltry amount of money... More

China Doll is not just all about the location - which is amazing on the wharf overlooking the water, boats, passing parade, etc. The food is really good Asian Fusion. Us 3 lunching "gals" ordered 3 entrees, 3 mains and some rice and it was too much to finish. We were all really hungry but the servings are very generous.... More

Had a brilliant meal at China Doll for my wife's birthday. Service was excellent and the food was at a level very few restaurants deliver. Well paced banquet offering that was ample for the 2 of us. Loved the pork belly!
