The soft shell crab, star anise smoke duck and broad bean and tofu were outstanding. Service was fast, attentive and the owner was very friendly. We are going back tomorrow for Yum Cha!

Crowded and busy often. Excellent yum Cha, efficient service. Decor could use an update but is passable

The Qantas magazine is a useful resource, it provides a couple of restaurants for travellers visiting unfamiliar cities......so I thought. Not this time. Ding Hao was not what I was expecting. Whilst the wait staff were charming, the food was not as pleasant as it could have been. The vegetables were fresh, everything else was marginal. I would not recommend... More

We visited this restaurant near the Central Market for lunch. The place was bustling but we managed to get a table for two. We ordered three types of dim sum (siu mai, har gau and cheung fun) and a plate of fried noodles. The dim sum were tasty, more hearty than refined. Portion of noodles was generous. Service was brisk,... More

We came here after 9:00pm. Service was really friendly and fast. Food was really awesome specially the hot pots. Staff was really friendly and very supportive. They helped us to sit comfortably even with our pram.

Visited to celebrate lunar (Chinese) new year. While would be busiest night of year for Chinese dining, there was so many things went wrong. We booked for a 7PM sitting, but people in the first sitting were late, and did not finish on time. Some of that was due to total disorganization in front of house delivery of food, some... More

One of the best Yum Cha in Adelaide. Really busy on the weekend. Recommend to make a booking. Amazing Chicken feet and Dumblings. Quick service. But it could be bit noisy and little bit too tight for the tables as they are always busy. But love their foods! So always go back :)

The Ding Hao is a longstanding restaurant which offers consistent quality, service and value. It's very popular, so a reservation would be prudent. The daily lunchtime Yum Cha is both popular, tasty and moderately priced- well worth trying. Their AUD$38 New Year banquet offers astonishing value! Well worth a visit!

Very busy Chinese New Year, booked ahead, line up on arrival so it looked promising. The extra seating was a dodgy cheap fold out chairs that are dangerous on carpet, The banquet was nice tasting but was served at inconsistent intervals with the rice served after 2 mains were finished. One of the male waiters was quite rude and unhelpful.... More
