Fantastic food, great setting and ambience. Recommend the duck noodles and sticky pork.
My daughter and I wanted to try Ali Chow as we had heard good things about it. Lovely atmosphere ( bit quiet because it was a weeknight ), great service. The food was very tasty but some of the serves were a bit small, even by tapas standards. The kingfish salad was delicious but very small for $19. The pineapple we had for dessert was lovely and different and enough to share. Really enjoyed the cocktails we had as well.
Wow! Food was amazing, cool ambience. Loved the experience and will be back!
Great service, lovely food and ambience. We celebrated a birthday and received special attention.
Ally Chow is the best find in ages. Friendly knowledgeable staff who really care about your experience. Food served promptly with grace and good conversation. Great menu.
This place was just fantastic. My mum had heard great things about Alley Chow - and with the number of great little foodie places (both similar cuisines and others) now on the Goldie it had some stiff competition. Admittedly we picked an ideal night just after holidays and early for the little person in our group and it was really quiet - but in a good way. Food was outstanding and Service was impeccable, down to the manager/owner (?) realising that the glass of bubbly Dad ordered had gone flat and replaced before Dad himself had noticed himself. Was no trouble asking for a highchair, however the menu is really suited for us big kids so we brought food for little one (though he dug into the coconut rice!) We've watched Nobby Beach change over the last 30 years and loved it back in the day through to now and Alley Chow is a welcome addition (I almost dont want to go back when it's super busy....almost!)
Rubbish - the waiter was clipped and gave poor service - the meals were not as per menu - no crab in dish 😳
Easy and relaxed night. Staff very eager to please. Food was quick and tasty
Service was poor, food was above average, ambience was nice inside however we were seated on the street and asked to sit inside. We never heard back from the waitress...20 - 25 mins until a bottle of wine we ordered came to the table overall service was quite lacking.
Amazing food, super cool venue. One of the best on the GC
A striking informal laidback first impression. The alleyway seating area unique. Various table layout sizes and height and locations providing
choices. Great cocktails. Food fusion definitely. Well presented and tasty as... nice work Ally Chow.
Funky new spot with a great range of delicious food and a chilled atmosphere. Definitely would recommend the beef skirt and pulled duck!
Exceptional food, drinks and service. Cannot fault anything and I have had the whole menu! The staff give great foo choices so always ask what they recommend. Highly recommend
Beautiful place with beautifully presented food. A little pricey considering portion size. Overall a good experience with very good service from friendly staff.
Recommend the beef skirt and snapper. Oysters were amazing and worth the price. Great venue and cocktails.
Great flavoured that were fresh and original. Was a lovely meal. Also the wines are very reasonably priced. In all a nice setting for asian fusion .
I had high expectations but thought it was a bit average.
The pulled duck was very good, everything else was so so
Great little spot. Funky decor and vibe. Loved the food and the cocktails 💁🏼♀️
Great night out and some creative dishes. We did the banquet #2 and left very full.
Had dinner for my birthday at Ally Chow recently and was extremely happy with the experience. Food was cooked to perfection and was delicious! I also had an issue with my booking (was completely my mistake) and the staff happily resolved this immediately. Without a doubt would recommend this restaurant.
The Girls had a lovely afternoon - special birthday for one of us - and the staff were very attentive. The food was melt in your mouth. We chose to order a variety of sharing plates and we weren't disappointed! Going back for seconds in some instances. Cocktails, bubbles and ambience - a great afternoon. Only one thing I would change, the Gold Coast has been experiencing an extreme weather event - it was quite hot and very muggy, something other than the industrial sized fan to cool the clientele would be beneficial. Will certainly go back though. Thanks to Stan and the Team, nothing was too much effort. Well done! Linda
Yummy food, lovely service & a fun place to dine! Great cocktails too! The duck was amazing and so was the pana cotta. I would definitely recommend!
Great to see a casual and funky spot with a great vibe, good service and tasty food - the food was very well priced and delicious, the cocktails were awesome and the service friendly. The menu offered a variety of dishes and I will definitely be back to try more. Some of the food was the best and most authentic asian food I've eaten - matched with a vietnamese coffee martini - YUM
Food was very nice however it took nearly two hours for all of the banquet food to arrive. We were placed outside beside a 40th party function with they also had on which was very loud. No air conditioning or fans which made it very hot.
We had to ask for cutlery to serve the food as it was share food and not hygienic to use our own chop sticks. Also had to ask for serviettes as was given one for 4 people ? Would like to see a slightly cheaper “house wine alternative” could also do a French option ie 1/2 or 1 litre house wine in carafe. Would not mind it being cask wine or off pump. Could be a win win for all. Food was superb.
Amazing quality food and flavours, excellent service & cool vibe. We will be back!
Staff very friendly and capable. Food was good (chicken only just cooked) but there is so much competition around in this type of cuisine that for me it didn't quite compete. Wouldn't take much to be much better. Music too loud.
A friend and I had dinner at Ally Chow. I had the Chicken Breast which was cooked to perfection it was so soft and not at all dry! It was served in a soy-ish sauce which was a bit too strong for my taste buds but I just dipped each bit of chicken in and it was perfect that way. I also got some rice on the side to have with it which was also great. For an entree we got the chicken Bao to try and the flavours were perfect! They were happy to make one of their cocktails into a mocktail for me and this was also delicious! The laneway we sat in was a little bit loud at peak time and our only other complaint was that they didn’t have the marshmallow and banana spring rolls I desperately wanted to try! The vanilla and dragonfruit dessert I had was amazing though so it alllmost made up for this! Staff were super friendly and helpful with seating and food and drink choices! Overall a great experience!
Superb! The banquet menu was brilliant with very generous with serves. Cocktails are a must - especially the Gin Gin and Melon Mojitos! Highly recommended. Terrific staff and gorgeous interior.
Lights in the alley need to be sorted, inside ambiance is amazing (we were seated outside in the ally), outside ambience is like you are eating under searchlights
Very small servings and limited menu. Small cocktails and overall not very good value for money. The crab salad was tiny and tasteless. The bao was just average as was the chicken dish. Good fitout but menu needs improvement.
Sorry - hate writing bad reviews for places that had great staff and friendly and happy people working there - but that's what this is for right....
The food was NOT up to scratch - the bettle leaves were tastless.... The Duck was dry.... Prawns were OK... The chicken wings were sooo salty they were almost inedible.... I wish it was better - but it just wasn't.
Ally Chow had a great atmosphere, wonderful staff, yummy cocktails and delicious food. Was a very hot night though and no air-con so got a little stuffy. Well worth trying though.
Great restaurant fantastic food and fantastic fit out.
Had a lovely night, staff really friendly. I was seated at the bar which was great but unfortunately for me right next to the water station my chair was knocked by wait staff getting the water for other diners over ‘7’ times and I’m not a big person so I couldn’t really shift in anymore so I got knocked again and some of my cocktail ended up in my dinner so we couldn’t finish that dish oops ! It’s only just opened so maybe afew kinks to work out but I’ll definitely be back
Great service, and another great spot on the GC. Our waitress had great knowledge of the menu, and service was faultless.
An amazing new restaurant with a cocktail list that needs further exploration from myself. Couldn't move past cocktail number 1...Frose !!!
Very disappointed, found the staff really had no idea, except for the young girl behind the bar who seemed to be doing everyone else's job as well as her own. The food was very average, much better restaurants on the Coast to eat at, wouldn't recommend this restaurant.
Great food but they really rushed us. Still eating 1 course when the next one arrived. Half the staff were excellent - the other half should be in faulty towers.
