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

After reading the reviews I must say that I was disappointed. The service leaves a lot to be desired, we were not asked once about drinks and several diners waited 20 minutes after others had finished for their meals too arrive ( we had a booking for 16 ). The food itself was average, I have eaten much better, having... More

Try the crispy duck. So delicious. The 12 of us are banquet style. The food came along quickly and there was plenty. All dishes were full of flavour. Service was friendly and attentive.

I heard rave reviews about this place but have to say I left disappointed. Service was extremely poor. We had to ask multiple times for things. Understandable to some degree of the restaurant had been busy but it wasn't. The highlight of the meal was the Barberry duck. It was delicious. Lowlight, apart from the service, was the prawn crackers.... More

Before I eat, I think the taste could be the same with another restaurant. Definitely not, it was so delicious, good cooked, well cooked, and nice presentation. You should try the duck skin and the green bean and also tofu hmmm... It's so yummy.

First went to this place in the late 90's when it was across the road. Menu has not changed - apart from the prices- and is still great value. One gripe is how packed the place gets, and consequently the noise level. Wooden floors do nothing to cushion the noise, and it really makes it impossible to talk without yelling.... More
