Eastern Garden Chinese Restaurant – Revisit

Having celebrated my birthday lunch at Eastern Garden nearly 3 years ago, I still have fond memories of the place. To this day, I still consider this place one of the best places for Yum Cha in Adelaide. Of course things change over time, so it was time to pay Eastern Garden another visit. As…

Golden Dragon Palace Seafood Restaurant

It’s been quite some time since I last visited Golden Dragon and in terms of decor, nothing seems to have really changed. The place is traditional and elegant with the Chinese lanterns, the timber dividers and the wallpaper that features Chinese characters. The white table cloths and leather seating give this place a more luxurious…

Dragon Tea House

Knowing that the Dragon Tea House was relatively new, and that there were some positive reviews about this place, I thought it was a safe decision to bring a group of friends along to check it out. When I first walked in, I was impressed by the traditional and elegant decor. The table we were…

Tea House Yum Cha

For me, yum cha is starting to taste the same where ever I have it, particularly with the mass production of a lot of the food items. I was even more skeptical when someone suggested we have it in a food court. When I approached Tea House Yum Cha in the Rundle Place food court,…

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…

Indochina – Waymouth St

The Indochina Thai restaurant is a take away food outlet in The Lobby food court on Waymouth Street. It does have a parent restaurant operating under the same name in Unley. The Waymouth Street store does more than Thai food. They also offer Yum Cha and Vietnamese food. Today, I ordered the Pad Thai. The…

Dim Well Cafe

Dim Well is a relatively new yum cha eatery located in the Gouger Street cafe precinct. The menu is your stock standard yum cha fare which is prepared as ordered. The place is relatively small with the tables close to each other. There’s no way a yum cha trolley is going to make its way…

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…

Cafe Kowloon

Cafe Kowloon is not my favourite place for yum cha, but sometimes you feel like the same stuff but at a different place. Before coming here, we booked about half an hour earlier and it was quite easy to get a table. Upon entering, the staff were friendly and attentive, and the table we were at…

Eastern Garden Chinese Restaurant

Located on Greenhill Road, the exterior of the restaurant is similar to a traditional Chinese building. The inside is also traditional and the place was very clean. The staff were warm and inviting and the service was exceptional. I ordered my usual yum cha favourites and was pleasantly surprised. The squid was fresh in my…
