Residing on the historic Finger Wharf in Woolloomooloo, China Doll is an award-winning restaurant delivering the ultimate Sydney dining experience to guests.
Showcasing premium and ethically sourced produce, the menu presents a modern take on culinary traditions from China, Hong Kong, Japan and South East Asia. With generous portions and bold flavours, dishes are perfect for sharing with family, friends or colleagues be it a casual lunch or dinner or special event.
At the helm of the kitchen is head chef Frank Shek, who began his culinary career at the age of six working in his family’s Chinese restaurant in Scotland. Frank quickly developed a taste for the excitement and fast-pace of the kitchen, developing a strong work ethic and refining intricate techniques handed down through the generations of his Cantonese family.
Frank has worked at China Doll since its inception and has comprised a dynamic team of chefs from all across Asia, including Korea, Indonesia, Nepal, China, Bangladesh, Macau, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Taiwan and Vietnam. The menu reflects and celebrates the many flavours and cooking styles of the East.
Frank has made a number of appearances on television, such as The Morning Show (Channel 7), MasterChef (Channel 10) and a Food Safari (SBS).
With spectacular views of the city skyline, an innovative menu, alongside world class cocktails and extensive wine list, China Doll offers the ultimate Sydney dining experience.
