We had an early dinner at China Beach restaurant in Manly and were given a lovely table for two. The restaurant was quite crowded for a mid week night and obviously popular with groups. The staff were friendly and offered recommendations as it was our first visit there. The food came out in stages which was great and was absolutely delicious. The duck on the main course was truly amazing! They have a good wine list. A lovely night and can't wait to return.

We chose to eat at 6pm as we were pre-warned about the noise in this restaurant and we were lucky to eat with it only half full. We had the gluten free banquet but were told on ordering that most things on the menu were changed so it seems they were a little disorganised. We found the dishes tasty but nothing special that we hadn't had before and the pork belly a bit dry and chewy. The silken tofu was great but overall the food average. The staff were helpful and friendly and the prices reasonable. We won't be rushing back but glad we finally visited China Beach.

Had lunch today at China Beach in Manly. What a wonderful surprise! Forget everything you think about Asian food. The combination of flavours and textures and the general 'lightness' of the food has spoilt me for all time for all other Asian restaurants. It might be 200 km from my home, but it has become a new favourite. I'll definitely be back. Additionally, the service is fast and friendly without being overbearing. Just loved it. A big bonus ..... you get to look at Manly Beach while you enjoy your meal.

! Was very disappointed after reading such good reviews. We love food and cook at home all the time and found this reasturant to be below average .
The food was cold and almost had a re heated texture and flavor. Curry puffs dry and frozen . Sang choy bow was a very small portion and not worth the money. The pork belly again cold chewy and flavorless
The smell if the restaurant was awful . things were sticky , way too loud
Will never recommend it or go back

Love how this restaurant keeps changing their menu. We have been here so many times and keep coming back. The red and white decor when you walk in is so inviting and the service is outstanding. The food - out of this world and so different to anything you have tasted before. The special were the oysters - the Vietnamese flavours were to die for!
