What a great setting!!! A beautiful night on the wharf, great banquet selection, even if a few of our party commented they thought the Salt & Pepper squid was a tad too hot and spicy, suited me, so I devoured it gladly, washed down by a long neck TsingTao beer, heaven. The Gov. General was seated behind us, so if she likes it , must be okay!
do it!

Very busy restaurant but very good service; pleasant evening, sitting outside looking at the city skyline. Food lovely-duck pancakes (Peking duck) were great-8 in a serve. Fish curry with okra & eggplant was delicious. Prices more than your average Chinese in the suburbs but for a good reason-this place is classy & worth a return trip.

Located on the wharf at Woolloomooloo, this is a lovely place to enjoy lunch. I had a set menu, as I was there with a large group. There was a great range of food, and more than enough to go around. They also took such good care to accommodate for different food allergies/intolerances and preferences, and provided "real" alternatives, rather than the usual risotto (not that there's anything wrong with risotto).
I did get to try one, but the cocktails also sounded and looked amazing!
Would definitely recommend trying China Doll.

Loved the food,service was great and the place was really pumping, perfect location for people watching, we even spied a celebrity !
The duck pancakes and wontons were delicious as were all our courses, which were very generous and plenty for four to share, would definately go back.
