Yummy food, great upbeat atmosphere..will definitely go again.
Our regular special dining experience is always relaxed, well served, attentive wait staff, and fabulous food and atmosphere. Critical to our experience is the variable menu which is first class and beautifully served within good time in addition to a superb selection of drinks/cocktails and starters/entrees. Highly recommended and as a local of Bondi, it's wonderful to host international guests at this superb location which is always buzzing with a superb atmosphere. We adore the staff, the atmosphere, and the food so much.
Ok... bit contrived. Loud music not conducive to relaxing dinner. Food quite good. Calamari bit fatty? Beef curry nice.
Service very good.
Probably for young and hip so wouldnt return?
It were right nice
delicious with really good vegetarian options, never had any faults with orders and really friendly staff. I highly recommend the silken tofu :)

Amazing food and generally good service, however, on my last visit, it was quite slow and took long to get a waiters attention
Have been here many times and always love the food, enjoyed every dish - very tasty!
Worth the money spent.
Thank you Anita for your positive feedback! We look forwards to seeing you again soon!
Service was efficient & attentive. All good was delicious mushroom & vegetables excellent as were the chicken spring rolls
Pretty disinterested service , one excellent dish- the mushroom wontons - otherwise nothing memorable. Deep fried ice cream poor
Fantastic dinner with our 2 children - we all loved it. Will be back for sure
Good, not great food. Average price. Not a bad vibe for a girl’s catch up but you can do better elsewhere.
All of the plates we chose were delicious! Looking forward to coming back again

Great food and super friendly and attentive staff!
Hi there, thank-you for taking the time to provide your review - we look forward to welcoming you back for more great food soon!
Nolan was our waiter and he was amazing, he gave us the best service!! He was so friendly and warm, and I could see he loves what he does.
The food was amazing, I really enjoyed myself.
I will definitely be going back!!
Hi Talia, thanks for your lovely feedback! We're glad Nolan looked after your party so well :)
The maitre d' was great, accommodating and efficient. However, the service from the waiting staff was poor, uninterested, obviously not experienced with very limited knowledge of the wine list and the menu. Towards the end of the night a new waiter looked after us who was great finishing the dining experience on a good note.
Food was amazing as always, staff so friendly and the place so Clean and spotless
Hi Anthony, thanks for your wonderful feedback! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Amazing food as always. The prawn and black fungi wontons are the best ive ever eaten.
Hi Suzanne, at the risk of sounding bias, we have to agree about the wontons - they are one of our most popular dishes! We look forward to seeing you again soon
First night out in awhile. The staff were attentive & friendly. Food delicious & ambience spot on.
Hi Trish, thanks for your lovely feedback - the trifecta of friendly staff, delicious food & great ambience are what we aim for!
Great welcome from a lady I think she was the manager ...very well looked after with care and warm assistance from Nolan !
One negative only ...there was a large table of women who were very loud and noisy and made it very hard to talk and hear at times which does tend to put a downer to the evening ,otherwise excellent!
So good to be able to dine out again at our favourite, China Diner in Bondi.
Food was as delicious as always. Cocktails the best. Great service & comfortable safe
Thank-you for your feedback Kate - we're glad the food, cocktails & service were spot on for your visit! See you again soon
Delicious meal!!! Not the best service (our waiter disappeared midway through taking our main orders and didn't appear until requested many times... and by then, some of the mains had already been served to the table). But the food was FAB!
We love you g to China Diner. I felt this time everything seemed very rushed. We got the banquet and normally the food comes out slowly but this time everything was heaped on the table pretty much at the same time and the waitress kept coming over asking f if we were finished. We hadn’t even finished the first dish never mind it all. Also on two occasions the waitress asked were we finished with the wine and more than half bottle left. We had to move it into the inside of the table. Very rushed experience not the nice relaxed atmosphere that we have always enjoyed
Hi Sriwantha, Thank-you for your feedback - we look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Bondi again soon!
We arrived early sat out the front with an aperol happily people watching. Moved to our booth (only down side of the whole night it was the booth next to the utensils water jugs etc ridiculously noisy and distracting to conversation) but we told the waitress and they adjusted for us. Food great as usual beautiful wine happy staff we had a fun night... last to leave as the manager very kindly let us sit out the front again until they finished. Love! will be back soon
Hi Lynne, Thank-you for your feedback. We are so pleased to hear we were able to turn your evening around & you enjoyed your Aperols & people watching!
Every time, without fail, the food and service are absolutely outstanding. No matter if you are a party of 10 or just 2, you can’t go wrong having dinner at China diner! By far one of the best place in Bondi!
Hi Julie, thank-you for your lovely feedback! We look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Bondi again soon.
Great food but waiters confused over what is actually gluten free and not. Also had items added to the bill that we didn’t have. This was addressed and we were reimbursed but not given a final receipt of the breakdown. Would recommend for food but not great service
Hi Sarah, thank-you so much for your feedback. All our Menu items are are labelled either gluten-free or whether they can be made gluten-free on request. We are very happy to talk to your further regarding this if you can send us an email or private message via Facebook.
Super tasty food and a wonderful time! I found the portion sizes fairly small but still very nice. There was a bit of a chilly wind blowing through where I was sitting but nothing too bad.
Nice spot but the service was painfully slow, And the food took really long. We had to ask for it a few times and remind our server three times about taking a drink order. Rice arrived 40 mins before the beef and the order was wrong, things were left off. We had a friend over from the USA, and ai recommended we come here, but I wouldn’t rush back!

food was very average and very expensive. Staff were great.
Hi Mark, thank-you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We would be grateful if you could email us so we can discuss your experience further
i dine out most weekends and was VERY dissappointed with the serving sizes. Between 4 people we had to re-order twice as we found the servings very small even though we ordered the large plates. I can't ever remember exiting a restaurant hungry except at China diner. The value is NOT there. Discussing it with another friend today, they also told me they have had the same experience.
Hi Irene, thank-you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We would like the opportunity to discuss your experience further if you are able to email us with your contact number.
Had a great evening catching up with a friend at China Diner, Calamari was excellent as were the duck pancakes.
Cant fault the margaritas either.
Hi Alison, sounds like the perfect evening - calamari, duck pancakes & margaritas! Thanks for your feedback, we look forward to seeing you again soon
Service was ok and the set menu wasn’t as filling as we’d have liked (one piece of salmon sashimi). However the food was tasty so it would have been better to order direct from the menu.
Hi Emma, thank-you for your feedback. Our Banquets are designed to enable guests to try a large variety of dishes from our Menu - the $55 Banquet Menu has nine dishes. We look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Bondi again
Great food. Great ambience. Always delivers. Look forward to returning and trying the $38pp all you can eat sushi train. Looks like great value.
Thank-you for your review - we look forward to welcoming you back for the $38 Sushi Train 1 hour special!
Amazing food and great options for vegans. Friendly Service and fun vibe. Went for a family dinner with my parents who are in their 60’s and we all had a great time
Thank-you for your review - we are so glad your vegan guests enjoyed the plant-based Menu.
Food was amazing and great atmosphere. Highly recommend.
