“Great views, great food, great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We visited China doll on mothers day, it is in a great location with lovely views over the wharf. We ordered from the banquet menu, each course was beautifull and the price was very reasonable.

“A fabulous taste of the Orient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

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!

“Modern take on Chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

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.

“An all-round great great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

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.
