    The food was great and selection was plenty. We love the bulgogi which was marinated well. Manager Kelvin was amazing and would help with anything from booking to serving.

    Attended for lunch, meat available for the hot plate wasn’t that great quality. (It was said to be good cuts of meat, but didn’t have great texture and flavours) Food that was already made was very average and there was only 8-10 dishes to choose from (excluding chips, garlic bread ect) Choice of 2 fruits oranges or rock melon, choice of 2 cakes chocolate or red velvet. Cans of coke cost $5 each no choice of a jug of cokes or anything Choice of 2 ice creams, definitely wasn’t worth the amount of money spend if your looking for a good all you can eat for good value go to highlands hotel.

    Booked for son's birthday lunch for 11 people in ages between 7 and 64. Loved the vibe of the place. It is a must for meat lovers which we all are. The quirkiness of cooking your own meat at the tables was a hit for all age groups. And fast. With a great selection to choose from. Delicious! Other selection of foods to compliment the meat was also great, plus there was a great choice of other dishes for the non meat eaters with a hint of Asian touch too. Would have preferred that a warm choice of dessert was also offered as only a couple of cold choices provided along with icecream. Like a yummy bread pudding always goes well at buffets. Overall tho, loved the place and we all agreed, we will be back.

    We went out for a date night and celebration and I’m so happy I booked at China bar. The food was amazing and was a fun experience cooking at the table. The atmosphere was great and the servers were lovely. We will definitely be back again

    The food was good definitely had a lot of meat options. I think we did prefer it before it changed over to new owners as there was a lot more seafood last time however I think it made up for the fact that you could cook your own meat on a grill! The beef and black bean sauce and the noodles didn’t have the same usual taste as the one you would get from inside the food court. Didn’t have the greatest flavour. The honey chicken and the ribs in the hot food section were AMAZING!!!! Wish I had more of them rather than the other selections. A bit disappointed to be eating out of disposable plates and drinking from plastic cups for the water for the price you pay at this restaurant however I’m not opposed to the idea. However when ordering a drink from the bar they were in glass. Over all it was good the service was good. I would eat here again however would definitely try other restaurants prior.

    i used to love going to china bar but this time just wasn’t what i remembered, less food options and the food quality has clearly declined. the taste of the food is insanely obviously its frozen rather than fresh too. made my partner and i sick which is unfortunate since it used to be so great :(

    It was good overall. However some minor things can be improved or changed e.g. more variety of cakes for dessert and real plates could be better than paper ones.
