Very nice and savory Chinese dishes. Reasonably priced (Australia standard) food. Staffs were helpful and gave good recommendations. Definitely must try their roast duck which was very well done and one will love the slight crispy skin and tender meat. Other dishes were delicious too. For those who do not take rice, I'll recommend the noodle. The recommended BBC dish... More

Just flew into town needed food - another restaurant that was closing recommended this place and I'm so glad they did!!! Friendly and cheerful, as you sit there you soon realise this is the hook up and you have totally lucked out!! There are so many awards in the wall. The place is spotless!! Strong recommendation. There's no photos as... More

Love this place 100% - However I just don't understand what the fuss is about the BBC dish, after reluctantly ordering it recently?????? Huge amount of uninspiring and under cooked miniature green beans of some sort. Unpalatable and totally unseasoned dish made My much desired Ying Chow dining experience disappointing. No sympathy from the front of house when asked how... More

Haven't been to this delightful gem for a couple of years and was certainly not dissapointed. The first night we dined on Shallot pancakes, always melt in your mouth. Followed by salt and pepper tufo, dumpling soup, e-shand chicken and some rice. Not one thing could be faulted and all were so reasonably priced and it's great that they open... More

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

Thankyou Ying Chow. You guys made Us feel welcome as soon as We entered. Late night dining in Adelaide is not well advertised and by pure luck we found this place and it is open until late !! Neat tidy and genuine Ying Chow is not fine dining but it does need to be. Food quality , freshness and portion... More

Very busy little Chinese restaurant. Fast service, average food. Tried the Tea duck, BBC & pork ribs. Would recommend the duck.

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
