GWAILO 鬼佬
noun / ˈɡweɪləʊ
origin: Cantonese (Hong Kong)
meaning: a Chinese (Cantonese) term that literally translates as “Ghost Man”. In the past, “Gwailo” was used to refer to white colonials, though is now colloquially used to refer to all people of foreign decent, especially, but not limited to, those from the West.

GWAILO is a fun and funky restaurant and bar in the heart of beautiful downtown Inglewood, serving Chef Wong’s creative western-influenced Honk Kong-adjacent cuisine.

Charcoal-grilled chuan sticks, dumplings, noodles, gwai-fried chicken burgers and other greats, hanging out with pan-Asian inspired cocktails, amazing wine, and local beers on tap. Great tunes, awesome people and eclectic décor. It’s a good time!

    The food was the star of the show. The layering of flavours in every dish was complex and unique. The soft shell crab was one of the best things I’ve eaten in years. Bravo to the chef. The ambiance was also unique, clean and with just the right amount of funky. Would highly recommend a visit.
