We had the pork belly, san choi bow and panang curry which were all fantastic. The pork belly was especially tasty and I would recommend it.

I went to China Doll for a work lunch. Location is a knockout, esp in the Sydney sun. Food is tasty and well presented. Serving sizes are a little on the small side, but perhaps we didnt order properly. Wine list was good and beer variety extensive.
