Park Lok

Park Lok is a Chinese restaurant located on the more quieter Grote Street. Specialising in Cantonese and Teochew cuisine, this restaurant is rather spacious and can accommodate over 100 people easily. The decor is a mismatch of elegance and poorly concealed clutter. The large chandeliers, the high ceilings and the white table cloths give this…

Shanghai Tea House

Shanghai Tea House is located inside Burnside Village, and is both a Chinese restaurant and yum cha place rolled into one. The place has a modern exterior with traditional elements inside. The decor is not specifically traditional Chinese, but more of a fusion of other Asian elements. The seating cubicles that they have on one…

Wah Hing

As I make my way through every Chinese restaurant down Gouger Street, the next place on the “places to eat” list is Wah Hing. The venue itself is long and narrow, with possible seating for about 50, and the front entrance can be a little deceiving, as it looks like you’re walking past windows. The…

Bava

Bava is one of the more recent additions to the plethora of Chinese restaurants down Gouger Street. The food on offer here is your stock standard Chinese, that has been customised to the Western palette. The decor here is funky and modern, with seating both upstairs and downstairs for about 50 people. The staff here…

Fortune Duck

My friend decided she wanted Chinese food tonight and she wanted something along Gouger Street, so I randomly picked a Chinese restaurant that I haven’t reviewed. Based on the number of customers currently dining in the restaurant at the time, I chose Fortune Duck. A restaurant with very few customers often says something about the…

Ba Guo Bu Yi

This restaurant has a name that I can never get right. Thank god I can google the first word in the title to find out how to spell the rest of it. The first thing that impressed me about this place was their glossy menu with impressive pictures of the food on offer. The prices…

Concubine

Fine dining Chinese restaurants are places I don’t usually go to. The place is worlds away from it’s nearest competitors that are just a few shops down. This stylish and classy restaurant is located close to the middle of Gouger Street, and offers all your classical Chinese dishes. The decor here is funky yet classical,…

My Yen Chinese Restaurant

Do you know how you can tell whether a Chinese restaurant is authentic or not? By the number of Asian people dining there. No Chinese restaurant is more authentic than My Yen. I’ve been coming to this place for Chinese New Year banquets for as long as I can remember and the tradition still continues….

Dumplings R Us

Chinese dumpling places seem to be popping up all over the place these days. As I make dumplings at home, I was keen to put Dumplings R Us to the test. Located on Rundle Street, this basically decorated store offers all your typical Chinese dishes as well as dumplings. Today, I ordered the Pan Fried…

Ying Chow

The abundance of Chinese restaurants down Gouger Street. With so many options, the choice is a difficult one! Ying Chow reminds me of Ky Chow when it used to be located closer to the Chinatown entrance. The old menus, the cramped seating and the basic decor were some of the features. Coming here with a…

T-Chow

How do  you know if a Chinese restaurant is authentic? When Asian people actually eat there! Located in the heart of the Central Markets, T Chow has been serving good chow for well over a decade, and offers all your traditional Chinese dishes. The staff here are friendly and inviting, and the service was pretty…

Ky Chow

Ky Chow is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Adelaide. I’ve been coming here for years, even when it was located down the western end of Gouger Street. Back then, the restaurant was small and they would try to cram as many people in as possible. At their new location, the decor is more modern and…
