Located at Morphett Street in Adelaide, Midnight Wudi BBQ is a place where you can enjoy Chinese barbeque dishes. Ordering of their dishes is based on individual portions, allowing diners to order as much of a certain dish as they want, and refills of dishes that they particularly like.

Their Chicken Wings were very enjoyable to eat. They were of a good size and had succulent flesh. Our favourite variety is the Cumin Flavour Chicken Wings, which had just the right amount of cumin to give it a bit of spiciness. The New Orlean Style Chicken Wings were also enjoyable with a taste similar to barbeque sauce.

We found the seafood dishes offered here to be of excellent quality. The flesh of the Charcoal Grilled Fish Fillet could easily be flaked apart with a fork, and the spices helped to lift the flavour of the fish. The squid in their Grilled Squid Skewers was not too tough and had a more pronounced spiced flavour compared to the fish.

To our delight, their Lamb Skewers did not have a strong "lamby" flavour that can be off-putting for some. The meat was also cooked just right. The Wudi Lamb Skewers are great for those wanting a "traditional" flavour while the Garlic and Ginger Skewers are ideal for those that prefer something milder.

Though it may take a while to be cooked, the wait for the Grilled Sweet Potato is worth it. The flesh was soft with a bit of bite and had the degree of natural sweetness that we desired. Those who prefer a vegetable dish which does not take as long to cook can opt for the Grilled Eggplant with Garlic, which had enough garlic to deliver a delectable "garlicy" flavour.

Aside from their grilled dishes, Midnight Wudi also offers a selection of cold dishes that are great for complementing their grilled dishes. The Harbin Style Shredded Vegetables and Beans dish was quite unique, with fried shredded potatoes being the main component of the dish. The potatoes had a crunch and the dressing gave the dish a delightfully tangy flavour. Fried peanuts enhanced the crunchy element of the dish.

For something that is a bit lighter, there is the choice of the Shredded Tofu Sheet in Wudi Sauce. There was enough tofu to make eating the dish a satisfying experience and there was shredded cabbage to provide some extra texture. The sauce used to dress the dish subtly enhanced the ingredients' flavours without overwhelming them.

Great for those wanting an alternative to rice, the Grilled Chinese Buns had a wonderful charred flavour with what tasted like the spices used in some of their meat dishes sprinkled on top.

Though it was not classified as a dessert, their Crispy Milk Cakes can be enjoyed like one. They were not too sweet and had the degree of firmness we desired. The dish is best enjoyed not too long after it comes to the table.

Provided at each table were salt, cumin and chilli powder for sprinkling over the dishes to add an extra element of flavour. Midnight Wudi's location makes it great for those wanting to enjoy Chinese barbeque dishes away from the busier setting of Central Market.
