More about House Of Chow, City Centre

Those who know Adelaide’s Asian restaurants, or those local to the eastern part of Adelaide’s CBD will have House Of Chow’s distinctive restaurant fixed firmly in their minds. Reminiscent of a pagoda, this spacious restaurant on the corner of Wakefield Street and Hutt Street is an easy reach from the central business district or outlying suburbs, and inside it is clearly a lavishly furnished palace to Asian cuisine with a definite emphasis on Chinese delicacies. The main dining room is flanked by a wall-length aquarium, and private functions are catered for by two separate dining rooms, one smaller room beneath an atrium and another, larger space upstairs with a dedicated bar. Wherever you choose to dine, be prepared to be blown away by the impeccable standards of service and the encyclopaedic scope on offer from the kitchen. Be prepared, also, to be blown away by not a few fiery Szechuan numbers!

Of course, it’s the food that has garnered House Of Chow awards like the 2014 Best Chinese Restaurant in South Australia and an Award For Excellence in the Best Chinese Restaurants in Australia competition. It’s a testament to the scope of this superlative Adelaide Chinese restaurant that their a la carte menu includes both appetisers and entrees, with fresh oysters done half a dozen ways in between, even before it arrives at the selection of soups, with traditional Chinese options intermixed with delicate Southeast Asian broths. The pattern continues as you explore further, with classic Chinese duck dishes meeting Thai lamb hotpot and even Mongolian lamb and beef dishes on a menu bewildering in its variety yet attuned to contemporary palates – it’s this focus that has garnered House Of Chow so much praise. The crowning achievement of House Of Chow’s menu (if for the time being we disregard their luxurious banquet offering – a big hit among the central business district crowd) has to be their special Chinese menu. Ordering from this gives the talented kitchen staff a reason to flex their muscle, and gives diners a real taste of what best informs House Of Chow’s culinary ethos. Be sure to book for this Chinese restaurant – it’s one of the best in Adelaide!
