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

Every time we visit friends in Adelaide we come to Ying Chow for Beggars Chicken, BBC, tea smoked duck, black fungus, jellyfish and eggplant. We have never been disappointed, it's always excellent, service is typically Chinese.

We had a mixed fried rice, chicken with cashew nuts and steamed pork dumplings and we were impressed. It's a no-nonsense place with good food and fast service. It's always full of people and you'll have to wait for a table on weekends but its worth it. Reasonably priced and very delicious. The dumplings weren't our favourite but we couldn't... More
