food was great, portions were small (banquet) for a group of 4 adults. especially at $55 per person. cocktails great too. service was mediocre at best. forgot drinks, dietary requirements and didn’t arrange a table for our required amount. maître d did not have a smile, she could see we had two prams and sat us at a table that was not suitable so we had to push a table together. i had previously called and said we were a table of 4 adults and 4 children and pre warned that we had prams. good for a drink / bite to eat if you don’t care about decent customer service.

Upon entrance, we were met with excellent service and assistance. The food that we ordered arrive within reasonable time, and also tasted impeccable. An amazing twist to traditional dishes, and hence elevating the entire experience to a whole new level. Highly underrated Chinese-Fusion restaurant that resides in Bondi, where not too many places really explore asian cuisine to this high of a degree. Will be coming back for more soon :)

Such a great restaurant and would definitely return! We visited China Diner for my birthday dinner and the staff were super thoughtful and generous in their service.

I know we are in the middle of a pandemic but the service wasn’t great. We had to flag down staff for drinks. The food came out really quickly and with no explanation as to what we were eating. I have been to China Diner many times and will definitely come back. I’m hoping the service wasn’t great because of Covid

We were not told to sign in and there was no social distancing at all and we were constantly bumped into by people as they were all crammed into a small waiting area. Extremely long wait in between dishes. Wait staff forgot about us and after we walked up to ask for the bill just had the card machine dropped on our table for us to operate ourselves - they would have been completely oblivious if we just walked out. Very poor service when we are spending so much money on food.

Excellent food, great place and reasonable prices. A bit inconsistent in service. Servers themselves are awesome and sweet. However the food does take a while to be delivered and in no particular order. The three of us has our meals delivered at different times, so didn't really eat "together".

Love China Diner, get takeaway from Double Bay and Bondi as well as frequently eating in at Bondi. Food never lets you down and the cocktails are awesome. My only issue on Sunday night was the table, I didn't like the location at all, the stools are uncomfortable and the table too small.

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.
