    Fantastic food, great atmosphere and lovely service. The only minor inconvenience was that we had to wait a little while for our drinks but the fact that this forward thinking venue has a low alcohol/alcohol free list at all more than made up for this. Would definitely return, loved it!

    No complaints about the food, but the service was terrible. We had to ask for extra chillis and sauce multiple times. Although most of the dishes were served promptly, it appeared that the kitchen had forgotten one dish (the market fish), as more than ten minutes had passed since the other dishes had been served and it hadn't arrived. After we asked the waitstaff, it took another ten minutes for the dish to be served, and the waitstaff did not apologise for the delay. (The kitchen wasn't busy--the restaurant was at maybe 25% capacity--so that couldn't have been the reason for the delay.) We also had multiple waitstaff come by every five minutes or so to ask if we wanted more drinks, even though we made it clear that we weren't interested in ordering more. All in all, it was a disappointing experience that could have been significantly better had the waitstaff received better training.

Thank you China Diner. Apologies if they didn’t leave a tip. First time my daughter has paid the bill. It’s tap and go. 🤦‍♀️

    Great venue and cocktails and service. It was our anniversary and they gave us a free starter which was appreciated. We ordered the $69 banquet which was great value based on quantity but the quality of the dishes was mixed. Temperature was warm to cool, odd flavour of white chicken dish sauce, dishes came out too fast. I wouldn’t recommend getting this banquet and noticed that not many around us were - maybe they knew. The kitchen and menu is letting down this venue. Staff were excellent

    China Diner's menu hasn't changed much since pre-COVID (unless you're a vegetarian) - but it still has some good dishes. Friendly staff make this venue very family-friendly at the early sittings and the cocktail list gets it rocking later in the evening.

    China Diner is a fusion of a fabulous Shanghai restaurant with Bondi beach cool vibes. The dumplings are one of the best in Sydney, duck pancakes and pork belly too delicious to pass up!
