My husband took me here for our (china) wedding anniversary and we really enjoyed it, the food, the service and just the whole atmosphere......so when we were thinking about where to go one Saturday night I jumped at the chance of returning and we weren't disappointed!

This is an outstanding restaurant, from impeccable service to amazing food add a beautiful location and this would be hard to beat. We were with a group of friends and asked the waiter to choose our menu, we were not disappointed, the food was fresh and tasty and generous serves, our glasses were never empty, save some room for the...

I have been to China Doll on two occasions for dinner to celebrate friend's 50th birthdays. The location is beautiful, the food is excellent, the waiters are friendly and accommodating and the service is very professional. The standout dishes are the Crispy Pork Belly with Chilli Caramel and Nam Pla Phrik, the Tea Smoked Duck with Tamarind and Plum and... More

I have eaten at a lot of the high profile Chinese restaurants lately and held high hopes for China Doll. In the end I found it just an average experience. Food was OK, Service was OK. Location is great but afternoon sun is a real problem and leaves you feeling a bit drained. $160 a head is not cheap. Can... More

We visited to celebrate a birthday and took our daughter along as well. Being pregnant and careful about what she could eat, the wait staff were fantastic in accommodating her needs. We had the banquet, which was fabulous, and the desserts were to die for. The setting is great, on the wharf at Woolloomooloo overlooking the harbour. All in all,... More

I would like to go back and select my own choices at this restaurant as I was there celebrating a 50th and was a set menu and from the teasers I had I would love to go and try more. The scallops were amazing and I was totally in love with our waiter Mark, who made me feel as though... More

This restaurant is on Cowper Wharf and is a great place to go for a romantic or special occasion meal. I went recently with my partner and had an amazing harbour side outdoor table on a glorious spring evening. The heaters ensure that the diners don't get too cold! The dishes were beautifully - our favourite of the evening was... More
