    Great food and service as always. I find the restaurant a little too dark though, and the music is competing against the music from other venues, which can be a little difficult to talk over. Xiao long bao was amazing though. <3

    Zelka and two of your staff were extraordinarily attentive, considerate and proactive. There was a difficulty with seating, and they handled it superbly. The food was, as I have come to expect, superb. It was a family birthday, and it went swimmingly. The only minor glitch was the delay on cocktails, minor really. I'd give you a chef's hat for this, as each dish excelled. Andrew Cohen – Glebe

    The food was great, but it was expensive given the size of the dishes. The restaurant is in the teamsheds and is virtually open to the rest of the complex and there was very loud live music playing over the top of the internal loud music system. You couldn't hear the person next to you and the wait staff misheard our orders. Not very enjoyable.

    The food was amazing, the Massaman curry was life-changing. The only downfall was that the restaurant was very dark, we went for dinner and there was very little light. Most of the light came from outside of the restaurant.

    Becca Bites 💋💋💋💋 China Diner I do love the Tramsheds for food and I came across this new Asian restaurant and though I must try! Great space with the igloos at the back for a more intimate experience, super cool. Seating inside and outside, booths, tables and high tables. Really cool space and atmosphere:) Started with a China Colada that had a few different spice 🌶 levels. It was a nice cocktail to start. Had the vegetarian spring rolls they were really good and nice dipping sauce. Prawn & water chestnut Har Gow was very good too:) Duck pancakes always a winner and they were very nice:) Pork belly bites with caramel and chilli was super tasty, loved the pineapple with it. Special fried rice with scallops as well as massive king prawns! So good:) So full no room for dessert and even had to take a doggy bag haha Wine was a good selection and I am very keen to return and try more dishes and cocktails:) 💋💋💋💋 Becca Bites

    Hi I enjoyed the meal at China Diner at Tramsheds but it did not compare to the same meal I had at the Bondi Beach China Diner. Bondi servings were much more generous. I was also disappointed to be charged an additional $8 for extra rice. The serving we received as part of the $59 banquet was not sufficient for four people. I go to many Asian restaurants which cost far less money than China Diner and I have never had to pay for extra rice. Also the dinner was for my daughter's 16th birthday but nothing was made of the occasion.

    Service was good apart from the bar service being a little slow… Most of the food was delicious however we took home some of the left over crispy chicken from our banquet and noticed that some pieces of the chicken were raw with visible blood. Apart from that, there was more than enough food and great variety in the $59 banquet that we got.
