Our second visit here and Ally Chow did not fail to impress. Dishes full of flavour and very well portioned. Amazing to find a restaurant that continually provides exceptional food with such great value. Service was outstanding, friendly and professional with helpful suggestions. The restaurant is beautiful, food delicious and the cocktails devine!!

Food wasn't great- I felt like it wasn't money well spent. Some dishes weren't edible. We also waited a very long time for mains.

Hi Chloe, Thank you for providing feedback. I would appreciate knowing which dishes you said were inedible? as you did seem to finish most of the 6 courses. The package is a 2 hour deal and I believe you received all of th 6 courses within that time frame - please correct me if wrong but we do time it that way. Thank you

The ambiance, decor and service are perfect. The music is at a good volume (good acoustics made it easy to talk). Value for money is ok. Food was a bit hit and miss. There were too many fried food options on the banquet. I didn't enjoy the spring rolls and the dumplings pastry was chewy..... The curry was delicious though. I would definitely go back to Ally Chows because of the great atmosphere and service; but would try some other dishes or order from the menu rather than get a banquet.

Went with a group of friends and had the banquet. Was pleasantly surprised to be offered a vegetarian banquet option. The food was varied, plentiful and delicious. Staff were helpful and attentive.

First time dining at Ally Chow. Really happy with our experience. We had one of the new waiters serving us, and she was awesome. We ordered the banquet and swapped one of the seafood dishes out for a similar priced menu item which they were totally happy to do. Overall, the food was delicious, and the drinks were really nice. Service was super friendly and easy. Pricing is very standard for the area. Our bill for the two of us was just over $160, which got us the banquet and two drinks each. Would happily pay that again for another special dinner; with the same service. Happy days.

Food was delicious but very small for what you pay for. Their “larger” dishes were nowhere near enough for two. We went to another restaurant after because we were still hungry.

It was super busy on valentines day and the restaurant couldn't cope. Food was a banquet amd took about an hour to come out. They were calling one of their drinks an espresso martini but it was a vietnamese martini and was nothing like an espresso martini and not for the better. Would be interesting to see if its better when its not so busy.

Absolutely beautiful restaurant experience. My husband and I shared a banquet and the food was phenomenal - fresh ingredients, clever flavour combinations, presented beautifully. So, so tasty. The staff were friendly and unobtrusive, food came out quickly. Beautiful ambience. Would highly recommend.

SERVICE WAS A STANDOUT!! The waiter went above and beyond for us when we were on date night as a family decided to sit right next to us while the whole of the restaurant was free. He suggested to the family another spot in the restaurant, very nicely of course and they moved there. And to top it off food was AMAZING

My partner and I loved it!
Just for a light dinner - 4 plates was perfect for us!
Would recommend the sashimi as well as the cuttlefish salad - the passion fruit iced tea was phenomenal too!

I like the decor and different feel. Food was ok, but that’s only a small snapshot of the menu. The peanut butter chilli tofu was actually the best.

Service was amazing and the food was really good. We got package 1 and we're very full at the end. The main course which was a chicken curry with rice was a little disappointing. Not very flavourful, lacked salt, spice and creativity, but the courses before were delightful.

Gold coast is not known to have great restaurants, but I highly rate this place and would definitely go again

Average food, lengthy service, was told the inside was full so sat next to the toilets even though the restaurant was empty

Thank you for your feedback Kirsten. When you made the booking you did request an outside table which is where we put you. It was down the end of the alleyway - the toilets are around the corner and a fair walk from where your table was, I apologise if you did not like your table. We always seat people where they request upon booking.
