Situated on the Woolloomooloo finger wharf along with other restaurants, China Doll delivers excellent pan-Asian food. Go for one of the banquets (they allow substitutions). Wine list is good and service excellent. They have heaters if you want to sit outside in winter.
A very popular restaurant, especially on fine weekends. Need to book. About $250 for two with wine.

Went there for lunch on Friday 24/5/13 with a couple of friends. The restaurant was full, so keep that in mind and definately book. All the food served was tasty and the service was great. All this and the restaurant was full to capacity. I was very impressed. Given the surrounding restaurants had limited patrons, it tells the story. A restaurant worth visiting whilst in Sydney.

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.

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.
