What sets this place apart in a crowded modern Chinese market is the concentrated quality of the menu. The menu doesn't try and do too much - just great tastes and focus on ingredients. We tried a selection from a few of the cooking styles and everything was excellent. Pulled pork on steamed bao and satay pork ribs were the highlights for us. The selection of desserts and the wine list are also very good. Finally, service was outstanding in what is a bustling and atmospheric venue. Definitely recommended.

I loved everything about this hidden gem , from its location to its fantastic food. the bird cages were amazing . We had Duck Pancakes to start with and Wagu Massman Curry with Asian greens and rice for mains. My tip to the waitress who served us (She was a Kiwi) whilst she was very professional a smile now and again would be nice and please please stop filling our water glasses and wine glasses. She must have come to our table at least 6 times to do this I found it very disconcerting. We were a couple and were trying to have some quiet time together

Exquisite in every respect! The service at this restaurant from start to finish was exceptionally good! The waiters were friendly, accommodating and above all extremely knowledgeable and helpful when it came to the menu selection. An extensive wine list along with the varied food selections made this restaurant jump to number one in my dining experiences. We are all still talking about the experience and I certainly was very glad I had made the journey from Melbourne to enjoy this wonderful restaurant. My compliments to the chef for providing the taste sensations that we experienced and to the waiters who cosistently provided above average service. I cannot wait to experience China Lane again and would definitely recommend a visit to this wonderful establishment to anyone visiting Sydney. If you live in Sydney then please this restaurant is a must do.

We booked the private room which has been faithfully decorated and is a lovely place to have dinner. From the outset we were welcomed and looked after. Excellent cocktails, nice wine list and very good food. We opted for A la carte which was a very good option for us; very good, plentiful and enjoyed by all. Overall a very impressive restaurant - a place that gets it right and makes you pleased you came.
