A Guide To Chinatown’s Extensive & Mouth Watering Offerings

Chinatown is a melting pot of culture and exotic flavours, from Yum Cha to bubble teas galore, now it’s time to support this important Adelaide landmark.


The impact of the Coronavirus on both Australia and the world is immeasurable.

Adelaide’s Chinatown is currently experiencing this impact, with the beloved precinct experiencing a massive loss of visitors, with many businesses forced to take extended breaks.

Chinatown is an integral part of Adelaide’s identity and a haven of culture and exotic flavours, having established its cultural importance over the past 30 years.

From walk-through cheap eats, to sipping your bubble tea, sharing a Yum Cha feast with the family, fine dining on the weekend, or date night eating spicy lobsters, Chinatown has always been an inclusive space.

We’ve compiled a list of businesses that you should check out over the next few weeks, many of which have sensational deals at the moment.
