I recently went to China Doll as guest for a 40th Birthday. Don’t know what the fuss is all about? Food was just ok and some dishes rather cold when served. Staff couldn’t cope with the numbers at our 3 or 4 tables booked. (...More

One of he best dining experiences I have ever had. Quality food, generous portions, perfect for sharing, friendly and helpful staff...nothing to fault. I would not normally go for Chinese food, I find it too oily, rich and sweet, but China Doll is something else.
