Real estate is important when it comes to Sydney dining and China Doll has some of the best. Take a seat on Woolloomooloo's iconic Cowper Wharf and enjoy and enjoy the elegant Pan Asian menu.
The Ian Halliday designed interior offers comfort and style; the restaurant's signature Asian-inspired print is featured prominently on the back wall of the restaurant. There's an open kitchen at one end and the bar at the other, however most of the action is on the boardwalk in the middle, which is consistently busy and buzzing.

Executive Chef Frank Shek has carved his niche in an area starved for good Asian cuisine. Start with crispy Sichuan pork and warm cuttlefish salad with hoi sin sauce - a delicious combination of both taste and texture. Braised eggplant with Thai-style fish stuffing, the chilli salt squid, and the tea-smoked ocean trout with green herb salad and green nam jim are other notable entrees. Main courses include a delicious wok-fried blue swimmer crab and Chinese mushroom omelette, or indulge in the twice-cooked duck with plum and tamarind sauce. The extensive wine list includes many options by the glass; however the Asian inspired cocktails are original and zesty and are a great alternative to wine. The list entitled ‘yin and yang' is based on an interpretation of five spices (cardamom, star anise, Sichuan, cinnamon, and lemongrass) and matches perfectly with the Modern Asian cuisine. With the right mix of relaxed yet professional service, moorish food and a glamorous location, China Doll delivers a quintessential Sydney dining experience for both visitors and locals.
