    My wife and I, and our two friends, all thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at the House of Chow. The restaurant was clean and tidy, and had a warm feel about it from the moment we entered the premises. The door staff person welcomed us as we entered, as did the receptionist, and other staff also welcomed us as we passed them while being led to our table. The food was excellent, plentiful and reasonably priced, as was the wine list.

    We enjoyed our first visit to the House of Chow so much last year, when we visited Adelaide for the Fringe Festival, that we decided to go again this year when we went to Illuminate Adelaide. The restaurant did not disappoint. We went early to ensure we would have plenty of time to get to our event. Our meal was prepared promptly and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The place became busier as time progressed,so it's obvious that it is a popular place, even on a Tuesday night. All in all, a very enjoyable special treat.

    We've eaten at the House of Chow many times. It's our "go to" place for family catchups and celebrations. Last night was not very good. They were very understaffed, meaning nobody took drinks orders, our plates weren't cleared between courses, we couldn't grab anyone to ask for condiments or cutlery. At the end we asked a waitress for containers for our leftovers to be packed up and she never came back. The bar was covered in dirty glasses. Maybe staff were out sick but it just wasn't the usual service. The food was fine but also not quite as good as usual. If it was my first time there, I'd probably never return. I'll return because I know how good they can be.

    After receiving a recommendation from a friend, we had a lovely time dining at House of Chow. We ordered chicken and sweetcorn soup, sizzling mongolian beef, black bean beef, braised king prawns with vegetables and special fried rice. All dishes were delicious and brought out in a timely manner. The staff were lovely and attentive. Will definitely be back!

    I took my Mum here for pre-Mother's Day lunch on Saturday and we loved it. The duck curry and the king prawns were amazing and very generous serves. Great staff who were friendly and attentive. We will be back!

About the restaurant

Chow down

At the iconic House of Chow, Chinese food is served straight up in a bungalow-style building. There is a cocktail lounge for pre-dinner drinks or an after-dinner digestive, as well as a private dining room used specifically for functions. This place is acknowledged as one of the city's best Asian eating houses, with menus featuring your favourite Chinese classics and some really fresh, modern alternatives. The restaurant is spacious and light, with tables dressed in white tablecloths surrounding a large tropical fish tank. It's great for all occasions, particularly family nights out or even a business lunch. If you're looking for some upmarket Chinese, come chow down at House of Chow.
