Had to visit Chinatown. We usually visit Chinatown whenever we travel. It was what you’d expect however I was surprised at how small it was. Not all the restaurants were opened for lunch but we had a great yum cha there. I was looking forward to a short soup but couldn’t find a place open that sold it.
Also I was disappointed because central market was closed on Sunday? It’s closed Sunday and Monday.
In any case Chinatown is worth going.

Fantastic atmosphere and great food from Asian culture you must visit and taste the local restaurant and shops. There is a central market for travelers to taste multicultural food as well

We had lunch in Chinatown after looking through Adelaide markets. The food was amazing and the staff very pleasant and helpful. There were many places to choose from but I was so happy we chose Ky Chow.

We visited at approx 10am on a Saturday morning and nothing was open, other than a small market stall at the entrance.
Typical Chinatown feel, quite small but clean

More of a hamlet than a town. Small but some ok places to grab a bite to eat. Next door to Adelaide Markets

China town in Moonta Street between Grote and Gouger Streets, near the Adelaide Central Markets.
Two large Paifang, which were erected by the city council, are guarded by the Chinese guardian lions. These were donated by the Adelaide City council and the Chinese government. They mark the entrances at either end. Adelaide Chinatown consists mainly of Chinese restaurants, grocery stores and markets but also consists of many non-Chinese Asian restaurants offering cuisines of Indian, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Nepali, Thai and Vietnamese origins.
Chinatown Adelaide has hosted the official Lunar New Year Celebrations in Moonta Street since 2003.

We frequently visit Chinatown to the food eatery. During lunch time on a Saturday, there's often a buzz. My family love eating at the Taste of China eatery. It's reasonably expensive for an eatery, however, they have lovely dishes that don't disappoint.
It's right next to the Central Market (which is fantastic for fresh produce), so, the whole visit is worthwhile.

A short mall next to central market- at 6pm on a Wednesday it was like a ghost town- only a few restaurants were open and not many people around. The street behind- Gouger (I think) had many more restaurants, people and more atmosphere! The actual bit within the gates is small and underwhelming.
Lots of great restaurants in surrounding streets.
Can be accessed by the 98 free bus.

The popular places had queues, locals knowing where they enjoyed brunch. Plenty of options, some places choosing only to open evenings as tourism impact due to Covid travel restrictions. Still fun area, one laneway under repair but negotiated way thru, backs onto central markets. Enjoyed the brunch I had at one of the establishments.
