    What a great restaurant. Each plate is masterfully thought out and put together with each plate consisting of contrasting flavours yet still somehow combining to a delicious dish. The service is friendly and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine list. We will definitely be back again.

    China lane delivers modern Asian flavors with impeccable service. It can be noisy and is a tad pricey but makes up for this on quality. Go to dishes are the duck pancakes and John Dory in coconut sambal. The menu changes reasonably regularly though classics are an ever present. Other noteworthy dishes are the pork on bao, saikou salmon and for lovers of crustaceans the balmain bugs (served in the shell). Cocktails are also good with a variety of house concoctions and staples such as a very good negroni.

    Fantastic food and really unique flavors. We went with our 2 boys, 8 and 11. Not made for kids as it’s quite trendy (and a little loud) but nevertheless they loved the fried rice and steak. My wife and I really appreciated each of the 4 dishes we sampled as each had its own unique characteristics. We were only visiting, and it’s worth a trip out of the way. If we had the opportunity we’d definitely go back to try more.
