Great staff who provided attentive service and who were happy to adapt the banquet menu to suit the tastes of our group. The downstairs part of the restaurant is busy and quite noisy, not the place for a quiet romantic dinner on a Friday! We were a group of 8 and it was impossible to converse with others on the...

Concubine won an award for best Chinese restaurant in 2016 and I can see why. My friend and I came on a busy night with booking and were told all tables were full. We left our number and within 10 minutes we has received a call from the lovely hostess telling us she had a table ready. Service was excellent... More

What an excellently dining experience, this is out of the box Chinese cooking, the food is modern, so delicious and there is a huge variety. I had the dumplings followed by salt and pepper prawns. The service was faultless and the staff energetic with beautiful smiles. We went as a group and everyone's meals were delicious and delivered promptly.

Our party of 8 dined at Concubine last night and we each enjoyed well prepared, well presented and excellent tasting dishes. Staff were warm, friendly and welcoming and the restaurant was buzzing with diners. We will definitely return on a future occasion.

Arrived in Adelaide off the Ghan around midday and hotel room not ready yet so we decided to go to Chinatown for lunch. Googled best restaurants in the area and Concubine came up and highly rated.... for a good reason, the food is excellent. Being a vegetarian I had loads to choose from as did my carnivorous friends. Highly recommended

Went for lunch on a Sunday, we just walked off the street and they only had one table left. Service was excellent. The entree of baby squid stuffed with prawn mousse was one of the best dishes I have ever had, definitely the best squid dish. The lamb was truly well done and the mah-jong chicken was a more usual... More

Another great meal here at Concubines. Celebrating a birthday is always a sure bet here. Love the chilli quail to start with & as usual had the king prawns in the coconut curry & the duck. But whatever you have here you will love!! Great staff, great food, great wine. No more to say except that this is the best... More

Recommended by a local colleague whilst we were in Adelaide for a wedding. The service and atmosphere was great. The dumplings, dimsims and wontons were delicious. The fried rice was okay - unfortunately quite overpriced for the ingredients. From memory we had the barossa pork belly as a main which was quite good. Overall a good dining experience. Only downside... More

The interior of the restaurant is modern and cool. I was offered a table straight away. Crowded for a week day though. Had baby peas with mushroom with steamed rice accompanied by excellent jasmine tea. Food was good. A better dining experience in a crowded Chinese restaurant district.
