The setting here is a major plus point and getting table outside is a must! I would not say like other reviews the food is upmarket Asian, we had the banquet $85, a suitable mix of fish, meat and vegetables, I would not say the food is memorable but the service and location are! Worth a visit

The ambiance and the food are fantastic. Take the menu to take advantage of all the different flavours. Excellent wine list and good and efficient service. Every time we are in Sydney we make a reservation which is needed especially during the weekend. Yvonne

Yes you have to wait. But I'd wait everyday for that duck ragu. Great local Italian. Fun place to go. Great staff and service. It's a regular for me.

We loved our food and the staff were very good and helpful. The area is very interesting and scenic. The only drawback was noise levels of the patrons.

Five of us girls went to China Doll Sydney for a catch up - the first time here for all of us. We decided for ease to go with the $69 Banquet and were so glad we did. Having a taste of 9 delicious dishes (10th was rice) was a great way to sample what this restaurant has to offer.... More

China Doll serves upmarket Asian food in a delightful setting on a wharf in Woolloomooloo. The night we went the weather was tremendous and the view across the water added to our enjoyment. The waiter who served us was friendly and competent. He guided our food choices and bought the food in a timely manner. He also had a sparkler... More
