The suicide bomber died and three embassy employees, all Kyrgyz nationals, were injured, Deputy Prime Minister Zhenish Razakov said.
Social media footage showed smoke billowing above the building.
China’s foreign ministry condemned the incident as an “extreme and violent attack” and urged Kyrgyz authorities to conduct a thorough investigation.
No-one has yet said they were behind the attack, the BBC reports.
The vehicle reportedly smashed through the gates and exploded in the centre of the compound, close to the ambassador’s residence.
“As a result of the explosion, only the suicide bomber died. Security guards were injured,” Mr Razakov told journalists.
