Although it's hard to look past the tempting fruit de mer offerings at Adelaide's Golden Dragon Palace, the restaurant features a breadth of non-seafood Chinese cuisine, too. Yum cha is served daily and there are plenty of tasty dishes to choose from. If seafood is your thing, twin tanks hold lobsters and fresh fish and the kitchen knows how to handle them well.

When the head chef hails from Hong Kong you should look forward to a menu reflective of this gastronomic king of cities. Fittingly calling itself a seafood restaurant, the Golden Dragon Palace specialises in the tasty treatment of all things finned, shelled and tentacled. Twin tanks hold gold cards worth of lobster and the weekly specials board provides stiff competition against the crustaceans. Mud-crabbers get to pick over a choice of Hong Kong-, Singapore- or Chinese-style preparations of the beastie. Crabmeat is also combined with spinach in a very relaxed-sounding “Tai-Chi” based soup. The sweet appeal of fresh scallops is furthered with their presentation on steamed egg, with shiitake slivers in a golden-coloured special sauce. Seafood continues into abalone, oysters, coral trout and squid. The standout prawn dish, known for its richness and luxurious feel, offers prawns coated in salted egg yolk and deep fried. Do not, however, ignore the hotpots – especially the intriguing-sounding “Chinese belly and tender beef” casserole. Shanghai meatballs fall into another rib-sticking option. Those hoping for a true Hong Kong style yum cha service may be disappointed, but can view a parade of dumplings, pork buns, sesame rolls, and pancakes with chives and minced pork on the menu.

The dining room is spacious and spans across two levels. Large round tables with lazy Susans abound beg to be filled with plenty of delicious dishes and hungry friends. The linen-dressed tables are set on polished floorboards with comfortable padded chairs extending further invitation to a lengthy feasting session. Kitsch fish cutouts adorn the bar. These remove any hint of formality, freeing the room for a fun, festive feel. Do not let them deter you from seriously good food though – order up some crustaceans and get cracking.

Golden Dragon Palace Seafood - User Reviews

Ken Bailey:

I had lunch with my wife on the 5th Nov 2011. Great service, great food and reasonable prices for both food and wine. The mud crab just melted in the mouth, some of the best Yum Cha we have tasted and service that is beyond reproach. We will be going back "frequently".review  11/11/2011
