    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.

    Very tasty food and the staff were really attentive and friendly. I visited on a Sunday at lunch so was relatively quiet. The coconut margarita cocktail was one of the best I’ve had. Highly recommend the prawn main dish and the dim sum also very tasty.

    I took my nieces to China Diner, and it was great fun, and great food! The dumplings are amazing, even though they are a little pricey. Fried rice way totally yum, and the best dish was the pork belly & chilli. Not too hot, both the girls and I loved it. Great place to eat out.

    Too expensive. Tastes NOTHING like Australian-Chinese food, never mind not tasting like real Chinese food. A very limited menu. Beer glasses are not fully cleaned so there is no head on the beer in the glasses. Wine by the glass - beware - corked and stale.

    My friends and I had an excellent meal at China Diner. Because of various dietary requirements we couldn’t have one of the set banquets, but the staff gave helpful advice on what to order. It’s not a vast menu like many Chinese restaurants, but that allows them to concentrate on quality. I would very happily repeat the experience.
