“one of our faves”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

We have visited Ky Chow numerous times, including very recently. The experience has been consistent: reasonably priced food, prepared fresh and delivered promptly...That's what keeps us coming back.

We often order at least one of the chef's specialties/recommended dishes on the menu and none have disappointed us! Whenever we are on Gouger St and in need of Chinese food, Ky Chow is the first stop.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

This was a great little restaurant with amazingly good food! Service could be improved upon as we often had to go up to the bar to make requests as no one came to our table. All in all the food was excellent and priced adequately. One questionable moment was when the waiter cleared the table across from us and poured the water from the glasses back into the decanter and placed the bottle back in the fridge......hope the one I had wasn't someone else's leftovers!

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Well I had never eaten Jelly Fish before! This is one of those restaurants that suit large groups of people who want to order lots of different dishes to share. This was only the second time I had been and both times the experience has been consistant. The staff hadn't exactly been to Sizzler Friendly School but they were pleasant enough and I had no issues. The food is great and I never want to eat at another suburban Chinese restaurant that uses buckets of Canton in the kitchen. Some of the best meat at Ky-Chow are small cuts on little bones and the spices and flavours are well balanced. The Chilli Chicken is tasty but only for those who like it really hot. I am going back next week before I fly out to Thailand and although it was better than I thought it would be, I won't be ordering the Jelly Fish again. Great value for money, and like most places the dining experience will vary depnding on the company :)

“NIce”

Good & tasty, staff were all standing around @ the front counter eating when we arrived, although we were there @ midday just as they opened, not a good look.

“Food always good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Work party of 17 and all went pretty well. Service has always been a bit hit and miss in my 10 years or so at this restaurant.
