Concubine was recommended to us by an Adelaide local who we met in Vanuatu last week. The food is next level. I would rate it above Sydney’s Billy Kwong, Mr Wongs, China Doll or Melbourne’s Flower Drum. The menu is contemporary Chinese using fresh local...More

Amazing top notch food. Interesting dishes (soft shell crab with crunchy apple was fresh and tasty), generous portions (HUGE prawns in coconut and kaffir leaf curry). Unobstrusive but attentive service. Easy to find in Chinatown.
