The Ding Hao was recommended by our hotel and it did not disappoint. Lovely duck and pancakes - our favourite. Good if a little speedy on the service side, but just what we wanted and frequented by many Chinese, always a good sign.

My family was here for yumcha lunch yesterday, a Thursday arvo. The food was either bland or way too salty. The service was very poor making this experience a very disappointing one. The all Chinese staff were cold and unsmiling. One girl even glared at us every time we asked her a question. We noticed she was friendlier and more... More

We visited Ding Hao one Friday night, after a concert at the Town Hall. There were quite a number of tables occcupied and it looked very busy. We were promptly greeted and taken to a table, offered menus and left alone for a bit too long. When we caught one of the waiters attention, our order was taken and we... More

Christmas evening - and somewhere to eat, and one in our party of five was Chinese Checked out the reviews, strolled the street and chose Ding Hao, didn't expect too much from what people had written, but they had clean white tablecloths, which was an attractive option to the laminex offerings at neighbouring restaurants. Service was a bit patchy -... More

I've been going here for years with a particular friend who is a yum cha aficionado. The decor is hardly Shayna but the food is sensational. If you know and love real yumcha this is for you. The chicken's feet and stewed tripe are the best in Adelaide and the dumplings varied and delicious. Favourite dishes include Shanghai dumplings, fresh... More

The food was amazing and service was quick and consistent. There wasn't a dish I didn't enjoy, definitely the best Yum Cha in Adelaide.

We had yum cha today for lunch. The restaurant was very busy (at times there was a wait at the door) but we were seated quickly. The food wasn't brought out by carts, but instead it was displayed on trays by the server. Most of the dishes were different from the US but we found them to be delicious. I... More

Went for a quick lunch with family. Service was very efficient as there was quite a lunch time crowd. Choose from the Yum Cha menu. Food was tasty and quite inexpensive.

Went with a friend for dinner. Ordered garlic fish and bean curd soup. My friend ordered bean curd and snow pea - marginally better. Bland and tasteless and had to resort to adding soy sauce and chilli to get any flavour. Ambience is dull as ditch water. Far better places to try out. First and last time.

I went along as part of a group booking, not sure what to expect. There was definitely no shortage of food. However, dishes with sauce were heavily thickened, with what appeared to be cornflour. Flavour did not seem to be a priority. One dish was memorable as it had plenty of good-sized fresh prawns, but the sauce was not only... More
