China Diner - Double Bay
First time to China Diner and we had a great time. Fantastic food & drinks in a lovely intimate setting.
Super tasty plant based food. Good service even better food.
There were many take always so we only managed to order once we have been there for approx 30 minutes. Our food arrived about one hour later. Something like xiow long bao which din tai fung have perfected, was thick party, stuck to the basket and bland! The dumplings bland. The crispy chicken bland. The duck pancakes sliced like bread - no crispy skin...
We won’t be coming back sadly as we had heard raving reviews. Perhaps the chef was having an off night - who knows! And $80 per person .... not worth the value at all. Thanks
Everything was very good, except the service. Staff did not attend to us, we had to ask for menu, ice, to order, cutlery.
So i wont be going again.
We love China Diner and have been ordering takeaway whilst it’s been shut to dine in. The food was, as always, excellent but the overall experience was let down by the service. There were plenty of waitstaff but they were I attentive and we often had to work hard to get their attention. I assume it was because they were new. Still love this place!
My previous two experiences at the Bondi branch were really great. I found the food at Double Bay a bit lacking in flavour. Not worth the price tags. Simply forgettable.
Beautiful quality food. Will definitely eat here again.
Not the most relaxing experience. Service was poor as staff were so busy dealing with the queue of drivers that were waiting ages for their deliveries.
We loved having the booth all to ourselves - wonderful sense of space. The food was very good but it was the service that was simply outstanding.
Great food and service ! Will be going back
Amazing service and food was delicious.
Had the set menu which was so good.
Will be back for sure.
Nice food. Tasty cocktails. Service was okayed generally a good vibe.
What a lovely young lady ROSIE
Thank you for looking after us
Love the food. Service is efficient and ambiance is good. Not noisy.
Hi Roger, thanks for your feedback! We look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Double Bay again soon!
The staff at Double Bay are always so friendly and kind with their time. They made my daughter feel so special when we arrived the night of her 13th Birthday . They brought out a surprise dessert with a sparkler. We love coming back!
Hi Tony/Mona, we are so pleased to hear your daughter enjoyed her 13th Birthday celebration. We look foreward to welcoming you back to China Diner Double Bay again soon!
We had such a lovely evening at China Diner. This was our second visit and this time we were celebrating my son's 19th birthday on a Thursday evening. We are a tricky group as 4 out of the 6 of us have various dietary requirements including Coeliac, dairy intolerant and non meat eater. The waitress was extremely helpful and didn't make us feel like we were difficult customers (which we are!). She referred to the kitchen when she had any queries but she was very knowledgable about the menu anyway. We each chose the $65 banquet which was amended to suit our dietary restrictions and the food was really fresh and delicious. We arrived at 7.30pm and it was very busy but we were the last ones in the restaurant by about 9pm. Thank you, China Diner! See you again soon!
Love China diner . Just wish you would put the vegetable bowl back on the menu Or something similar
Hi Eva, thanks for your feedback. Do you mean the China Salad Bowl? We always welcome feedback from our customers about what dishes they enjoy/ed!
All ways very pleasant service excellent food. Easy parking easy access. Highly recommend for a modern Chinese meal.
Thoroughly enjoyed an early Sun night bite with friends. Good value, fabulous gluten free and vegetarian options. The only very slight negative is the food is missing is the charred taste of a well seasoned wok that you get in an old fashioned Chinese restaurant.
Always fabulous - have never had a bad experience - will continue going for ever
Highly recommended.. will return.
Hi George, Thank-you for your feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Service and food were great! Heard a lot about this place but didn't believe the hype, was very presently surprised. On the pricey side but worth it
Hi there, thank-you for your feedback. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the food & service.
We had a delicious vegetarian meal and sat outside which was lovely. Food was fantastic.
Hi Mandy, glad to hear you were able to enjoy our vegetarian/vegan Menu!
Great food and nice atmosphere
Will definitely go back
Hi Trish, thanks for your review. We look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Double Bay again soon!
I have dined here quite a few times now and have enjoyed every time. Thank you
Thank-you for your review Sylvie, we're so pleased you have enjoyed your China Diner experiences!
Bit cold in there.
3 staff asked if we wanted water before we got it.
Very expensive but delicious
Like the booth seating arrangement
Service not great the main person who served us wasn’t friendly and got the order incorrect
Fabulous place! Love the China Diners but this one is way easy than the Bondi one. Staff were lovely and they were attentive in a good way. The food...well the food needs no introduction- love it. Who knew coconut cream on a cocktail worked so well?
Thanks Mario - the lemongrass & coconut sour is one of our signature cocktails & we tend to agree - it's a great combination!
Outstanding service, amazing food with value for money, great cocktails and ambience. Definitely coming back
Thank-you for your lovely review Helena - we look forward to welcoming you back soon to enjoy the China Diner experience!
Food was delicious but too expensive for what it was
The plant based banquet was delicious! And very generously portioned. Would 100% order again!
Food was fabulous and the service was also very good. We will definitely go back
A very enjoyable , relaxed dinner. Food was good and service was pretty good. A couple of times we had to chase it up - but overall Ok. Definitely recommend for a casual night out where you want some reasonable food and a good atmosphere.
I couldn’t have enjoyed it more. We were recommended to a delicious prawn dish which we shared as an entree. Then both had mains.
Service polite and efficient. A great experience for lunch before we went to a book launch in Double Bay Library. Will certainly revisit and recommend.
Thank-you for your feedback. We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your lunch with us & look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Double Bay again soon.
Food is absolutely delicious, staff attentive and a good wine list.
Thank-you for your review - we look forward to welcoming you back soon for more delicious food!
This is the 2nd time I’ve been when the restaurant is relatively quiet and the same thing happened both times.
We had a 7.45 booking, and ordered food pretty quickly. Before any of our starters had arrived we were asked if we wanted to order anymore food or add to our order because the kitchen was closing. It was 8.20 on a Saturday night.
When our food arrived it was good, however after our mains we were told we couldn’t order desert as the kitchen was closed, and the bill was plonked down on our table while we still had food and drinks.
I understand that they were quiet and therefore closed early, however there were 6 tables there and we personally felt really rushed, and of an inconvienience to them and personally this would be why I won’t be going back.
Service was lovely, staff were great! Food was horrible, not fresh or fragrant. Very over priced for what we received.
Was a bit disappointed about having to sit at the bar. Bar area was quite unkempt . I normally love China diner and go to both d bay and Bondi frequently
Delicious food and very attentive service, however the dishes were very expensive.
Very slow service. Arrived at 7.15, ordered thing 10 minutes and food came to the table at 8.45-9pm.
