We didn't know much about the menu and the staff were very helpful explaining everything. We actually let them chose for us, it worked perfect. Excellent outdoor environment. Great wine and beer selection although a bit overpriced. 100% Recommended.

Came for dinner as a party of four. Three of us had visited previously. We had the banquet, at $62/ head. Not worth it for the quality of the food. The flavours were ok depending on the dish, but honestly can get much better Asia...More

A dinner straight after work was really welcome despite sitting in the lane and being surrounded by the sounds of birds and hundreds of umbrellas in the air. It was pumping inside so we were glad to have some space outside. The food was great,...More

I went to China Lane on spec on a business trip. I glanced through the menu and was surprised by the adventuresome offerings, but it didn't have what I really wanted (chilli beef). I asked for it, and the waitress said she'd ask. She came...More

We were here for a last minute dinner call and can definitely say we made a great choice - we may have been fortunate enough to get a table as a walk-in. The food was really good - a modern take on Chinese cuisine, something...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
