    We had a marvelous time at China Diner. The service was impeccable. It was Father's Day, and there were special treats- a free beer and a voucher for $25. Neither of these were advertised so it was a lovely surprise to be treated so well. We loved the food. Definitely worth a return visit.

    Have been there a few times .. always good .. service is prompt, food is tasty and wines are reasonably priced. The only thing I questioned was when we went to pay for the bill, in cash, we were told that if we did proceed to pay in cash, that they were unable to give us any cash change if needed as they did not carry any cash in the till. I found this very strange especially due to the fact that I saw other people pay in cash .. where does the cash go ??? As it was, we had the correct amount of cash on us so we didn’t need any change but apparently it’s bad luck if we did. Regardless of this very strange policy, we will be back.

    I booked a table of 12 for my birthday. The vibe of the restaurant is awesome inside however the value for money was poor. We got the $69 banquet and I had to ask the wait staff to bring out enough dishes for our group multiple times as it wasn’t enough to feed the table. Cocktails and staff were good but the food quality and quantity was very very average.

    Unfortunately not there best we were the only two people for lunch on Tuesday. XO sauce pippies was very watery sorry to say. After brilliant meal including XO prawns which were brilliant sad to see such a different experience in just two weeks. We ordered a meat dish which never arrived as I said we were the only two diners. I can see why the place was empty. Will monitor before going back.
