Our family group of 8 had a great shared meal here on a busy Sunday night; all delicious (best spring roll pancakes!), excellent, friendly service and good wine list too. Always enjoy our visits here but with a larger group we we were able to try a larger number of dishes and we were not disappointed with any.

We wanted to have early dinner. Ding Hao was not opened yet so we decided to try KY Chow just across the street. We ordered sizzling mongolian lamb, pak choy, hot and sour soup, rice and tea. The sizzling mongolian lamb was a disappointment, the meat was smothered in a gooey sauce without any other ingredients like onion or spring... More

I was the fourth leg at a business dinner with three young "execs" who wanted a good feed, good wine and dining experience. Business finished after drinks and entrees (management selection) were all nicely presented and tasted great. Similarly the waiter was asked to select the mains: duck and pork dishes with two rice selections and a couple of vegetable... More

My family and I thought we would celebrate the Chinese New year and have dinner in Gouger street....well we would have been served better on the street. The waiter sat us in the back corner of the restaurant and sort of left us there. I had to ask twice if anyone was going to serve us and we were basically... More

Arrived for Chinese New year with some friends from HK. They were busy, our table was not ready. Seven of us sat down but only 3 menus were given to us. We had to call the waiter to order drinks. My cider arrived with no glass so I was left to drink out of the bottle. It was very warm... More

It was recommend to us to try Ky Chow. Good food, good service and great price. Multiple mains order and every one of them excellent. We all agreed it was the best Chinese we had had in many years. I'll be going back when I come back to Adelaide.

I've been beofre - 5 years ago, and it hasn't changed much. The food is pretty good, service excellent and the atmosphere is busy and loud. We enjoyed the experience.

Visited here twice for dinner last week. The food was very good (by our Asian standards). Food was served hot and the service staff were friendly and attentive. Most of what we ordered were tasty. The portions were Asian portions however. By that, we had expected the portions in a western country to be huge compared to Asian countries. Must... More
