Apart from the great food, and it is genuinely good, fast and delicious, it is the atmosphere that hooks me in. No fancy linen, just formica tables and scarily efficient (but friendly) service. If you haven't booked, then be prepared to wait a while , it is not unusual to see several people queuing outside, but the wait is never... More

I used to live in Adelaide a while back and one night my boss took all of us out to his favorite chinese restaurant : Ying Chow. The place itself doesn't look like much but I have travelled a lot and can say it was THE BEST chinese food I ever had! If you're not use to eat crocodile, it's... More

This place aint too much to look at and at peak times best to book. Can be very noisy when busy but i don't mind because i love the food. Great vegetarian options. Try salt and pepper tofu or eggplant, bbc, chilli green bean, xo greens +broccoli. The sizes can vary but generally adequate, fairly priced. Service is always very... More

The food here is great, and cheap for the size of the portions. Try the BBC and shallot pancakes. I was hesitant on both but reassured by my friend who is a local and has this amongst her favourite places in Adelaide and they were truly delicious. The carafe of house win is just $12 or thereabouts and the rose... More

My husband and I have been going to Ying Chow for ten years. It's easily our favourite on Gouger, but there are a few tips for newcomers: Arrive early; it opens at 5. Get there early and avoid waiting. Don't expect fine dining or the lemon chicken/ sweet and sour pork style of Chinese food; this is more street-style and... More
