China Diner - Bondi
Every time, without fail, the food and service are absolutely outstanding. No matter if you are a party of 10 or just 2, you can’t go wrong having dinner at China diner! By far one of the best place in Bondi!
Hi Julie, thank-you for your lovely feedback! We look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Bondi again soon.
Great food but waiters confused over what is actually gluten free and not. Also had items added to the bill that we didn’t have. This was addressed and we were reimbursed but not given a final receipt of the breakdown. Would recommend for food but not great service
Hi Sarah, thank-you so much for your feedback. All our Menu items are are labelled either gluten-free or whether they can be made gluten-free on request. We are very happy to talk to your further regarding this if you can send us an email or private message via Facebook.
Super tasty food and a wonderful time! I found the portion sizes fairly small but still very nice. There was a bit of a chilly wind blowing through where I was sitting but nothing too bad.
Nice spot but the service was painfully slow, And the food took really long. We had to ask for it a few times and remind our server three times about taking a drink order. Rice arrived 40 mins before the beef and the order was wrong, things were left off. We had a friend over from the USA, and ai recommended we come here, but I wouldn’t rush back!

food was very average and very expensive. Staff were great.
Hi Mark, thank-you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We would be grateful if you could email us so we can discuss your experience further
i dine out most weekends and was VERY dissappointed with the serving sizes. Between 4 people we had to re-order twice as we found the servings very small even though we ordered the large plates. I can't ever remember exiting a restaurant hungry except at China diner. The value is NOT there. Discussing it with another friend today, they also told me they have had the same experience.
Hi Irene, thank-you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We would like the opportunity to discuss your experience further if you are able to email us with your contact number.
Had a great evening catching up with a friend at China Diner, Calamari was excellent as were the duck pancakes.
Cant fault the margaritas either.
Hi Alison, sounds like the perfect evening - calamari, duck pancakes & margaritas! Thanks for your feedback, we look forward to seeing you again soon
Service was ok and the set menu wasn’t as filling as we’d have liked (one piece of salmon sashimi). However the food was tasty so it would have been better to order direct from the menu.
Hi Emma, thank-you for your feedback. Our Banquets are designed to enable guests to try a large variety of dishes from our Menu - the $55 Banquet Menu has nine dishes. We look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Bondi again
Great food. Great ambience. Always delivers. Look forward to returning and trying the $38pp all you can eat sushi train. Looks like great value.
Thank-you for your review - we look forward to welcoming you back for the $38 Sushi Train 1 hour special!
Amazing food and great options for vegans. Friendly Service and fun vibe. Went for a family dinner with my parents who are in their 60’s and we all had a great time
Thank-you for your review - we are so glad your vegan guests enjoyed the plant-based Menu.
Food was amazing and great atmosphere. Highly recommend.

The pork belly is sublime, everything is always reliably good. Quick friendly service and doesn’t break the bank 🤷🏻♀️
Hi Cassandra, Thank-you for your feedback. The Chilli caramel pork belly is one of our favourites too! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
I didn't attend the dinner, I booked it for a staff event, but all reports back from staff were all very positive about everything, so thank you for looking after them, they've all worked really hard this year so it was nice they got to relax and enjoy some top notch food.
Thank you and Merry Christmas and a happy new year
Hi Craig, Thank-you for passing on the feedback from your team. Next time you'll have to come along :)
China diner is a family favourite, the only hard part is we can’t eat everything. Service was attentive, food always amazing. Thanks as always
Thank-you for your lovely review. We hope to welcome you back to China Diner Bondi again soon to try the rest of the Menu!
Such good food. Second time visit and just great. Recommend highly for fresh flavours and great choice of Asian food. Sushi, dumplings, pork buns yum.
Thank-you for your lovely feedback, especially on our new Sushi Menu. We look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Bondi again soon!
Love the new train in the middle of the restaurant!!
As a small family of 3 it was always hard to order as we wanted to try lots of different things but were limited by the portion size and cost and only ever ordered 3 or 4 things. Now with the train you can help yourself to half sizes of their famous dishes and interesting sushi etc while you wait for mains!!
Brilliant idea guys!! Loved it.
Thank-you so much for your feedback on CHINA TRAIN Vikki! We are so pleased to hear you & your family enjoyed it. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
The food was delicious and surprised me to say the least, however the wait staff were uneducated about the food or wine, when wine was delivered the waiter proceeded to stand there with his hands on hips as if it was a hassle for him to bring us the wine.
Additionally whilst we had ordered a number of different items On the menu, the fact that my main came out and then 15 minuets later my sides of rice and broccolini arrived was quite disappointing.
Every dish we received was immaculate and did not disappoint the pork belly was rich and the king fish heavily. Which further disappoints me when it is brought out at staggering which made no sense.
Waitstaff need education of what they are presenting to their customers and expeditor or head chef need to realise the correct time to send food to a table.
Thank-you for your feedback. We have shared this with our team. We have taken all your comments onboard & will do our utmost to ensure our systems & processes prevent this from happening again. We hope this experience will not discourage you from visiting us in the future. If you would like to discuss this further, you can contact our Group General Manager on 91302333
The food was disappointing & although we ordered the large servings thought them very small. For the cost I expected much better.
Have dined here numerous times now.
Food is always outstanding with a great variety of dishes. Looking forward to my next visit.
Hi David, thank-you for your feedback! We look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner soon.
We do love coming to this restaurant. On our last visit though we were ignored for at least 10mins before someone took our food order. Our first water order never arrived and we were charged for the water we never received. Staff promptly removed the charge. Service can change depending on where you sitter but food is always good.
Hi Dan, thank-you for your feedback which has been shared with the team. We sincerely regret the service errors & hope that we can redeem ourselves in the future.
The restaurant was great. Problem was that they had no record of my booking despite an email confirmation form you!!!!!! Also, you make it impossible to give this feedback.
Hi Tim, thank-you for your feedback. Our records show that you did have a reservation with us & that the reservation was seated in the venue on 28 September. Our systems team would like to discuss this matter with you further & will be contacting you today. Sincere apologies for any breakdown in communication.
Yummy but expensive
A brilliant place, food amazing, service on point. A really fun environment too. Cannot fault. Not a cheap eat but price is very fair for the location, quality and service. Sublime.
Hi Rosie, thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the "fun environment, amazing food & on point service"! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Amazing food & service. Can’t wait till next visit.

Fantastic range of food
Excellent service and great suggestions for options
Hi Anthony, Thank-you for the great feedback. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your dinner with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Excellent and tasty food, served in a timely sequence. This is about the 4th time i have dined at this restaurant and the consistency is excellent. Well done.
My only observation, and not a criticism, is i noticed there are a number of staff who are obviously foreign language students who's english is hard to understand when they explain the menu. Once we got beyond that barrier the service was attentive and friendly and we really enjoyed our evening. Thanks and keep up the good work!
Hi Mark, thank-you for the constructive feedback - we take it on board. Glad to hear you've enjoyed your visits - we look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner for your 5th visit soon!
We love everything about China diner, value for money.

Hi Ilana, thank-you for taking the time to provide your feedback! We look forward to welcoming you to China Diner again soon
The restaurant was cold - we never took our coats off. My husband ordered a cocktail he couldn’t drink. Then they forgot our order - it took an hour to get our food (arrived at 7:30pm, ate around 8:45pm). Ordered a glass of wine while we waited which sat in the bar for 10 min. until I asked a waitress if we could have it. No discount or free drink offered to make up for the poor service. AND, it was my birthday (not that they knew but compounded the disappointment). Definitely not going back.
Extremely tasty and delicious food. Would definitely go back. New favourite
Thank-you so much for your feedback - we look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner Bondi again soon!
We had a lovely night celebrating my sons birthday
When I went to pay the bill with my credit card the waitress said the reception was really bad and the transaction hadn’t gone through So we moved further to the front of the restaurant and did it again
When I got home and checked my account the amount had come out TWICE
I immediately rang and was assured one transaction had been refunded
But 2 days later that hadn’t happened
Quick to take 2 payments but slow to return their mistake I will check in the next couple of days and then have to follow up with my AMEX
We had a very pleasant experience. Food was great, booth was comfortable and service prompt. Only slight negatives are it was a bit dark for me and at times the dishes we were sharing were taken away a bit too soon.
Had a great experience, the vegan banquet was delicious and wait staff very attentive. The venue is also very cool with a good vibe for everything from causal to more formal.
Thank-you for your wonderful feedback - we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed the new vegan Banquet Menu! We look forward to welcoming you back to China Diner again soon. Alice / on behalf of China Diner Bondi
