Asian / Chinese

China Doll

Went here in a group of 4.  They were really busy for a Tuesday night, the setting is good and decided quickly on the $72pp Banquet – had to try the Pork Belly.  The scallops were great, felt like having more.  The Chilli Salt Squid was really good too, like the touch of the chilli powder and had the perfect amount of crispiness.  The Corn and Zucchini cakes were so good.  Not a fave was the Beef Salad and Pickled red cabbage mizuna, just plain and also salad – really.  Anyway, Steamed Cone Bay Barramundi was good, really soft and tasty.  The Pork Belly was as described – really amazing.  I was so full but just kept eating it.  The Poached chicken was pretty good too but was just too full at that point.  The Chinese greens had a really nice smokey flavour, that was also subtle yet nice.  Dessert Platter wasn’t that amazing, I guess I liked the sorbet the best although the others like the sago dessert.  I would say to go with A La Carte next time – especially if it’s just two, even with 4 people we were struggling to finish the food.  It’s good quantity that’s for sure.  But the best dishes were the Chilli Salt Squid, Corn and Zucchini cakes and Pork Belly, would go with those next time and try a few other dishes.  Overall, it’s been the best fusion Asian place so far.  Service was a bit slow, even with a dedicated waitress, I know it was busy but was hard getting their attention at times – even to pay the bill!
