Park Lok

Park Lok is a Chinese restaurant located on the more quieter Grote Street. Specialising in Cantonese and Teochew cuisine, this restaurant is rather spacious and can accommodate over 100 people easily. The decor is a mismatch of elegance and poorly concealed clutter. The large chandeliers, the high ceilings and the white table cloths give this…

Taj Tandoor

I’ve been to Taj Tandoor several times over the years and I’ve never had a bad experience. After reading some negative reviews of this place, you’d think I had been dining at a different restaurant. The place itself is in a prime location on Rundle Street. The decor is slightly traditional with a few modern…

Thai Spice

For a restaurant, Thai Spice is deceptively larger than it appears. With entrances from the front and rear, I think you could easily fit 80 people in here. With that being said, there is limited parking at the rear of the restaurant, so I can’t see this place ever being a full house. The decor…

Ga Bin

We came to Ga Bin by chance tonight as the restaurant we were supposed to go to didn’t serve food until 6pm. I had heard reports that this place wasn’t very good, so I came here with little to no expectations. Ga Bin call themselves a Korean restaurant, but as one other reviewer had said,…

River Cafe – Festival of Food 2013

Having been to the fine dining restaurant upstairs a few weeks ago, I already had high expectations of this place. Located in the same building as the Red Ochre restaurant, the River Cafe also provides fantastic views of the city and the Torrens River. The setting is elegant and modern, and the service is excellent….

Saigon Gate

Saigon Gate is a restaurant located towards the northern end of O’Connell Street. The menu is primarily Vietnamese, however, some of their items are a fusion of other Asian cuisines. The place is traditionally decorated with a seating capacity of about 70. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the service was pretty good. The…

Rose Garden Thai

Don’t judge a restaurant by its crappy decor. This rings very true, particularly for this place. The external appearance of this place reminds me of a run down crack house, while the internal is a bit more presentable. I would never have considered this place had I not read some positive reviews of the place….

Babanusa

Babanusa is a restaurant located on Prospect Road. It has been open for 18 years and is Australia’s only Sudanese restaurant. The place must be doing something right to last that long. The decor here is basic and slightly traditional. The bongo drums, the ornaments hanging off the walls and the extensive use of timber,…

Auge Ristorante

Auge is an award winning fine dining Italian restaurant on Grote Street. This place has such a good reputation, they can get away with charging higher prices for their food. With entree prices similar to what you would pay for a main at a normal restaurant, and main prices around the $40 mark, make sure…

Fortune Duck

My friend decided she wanted Chinese food tonight and she wanted something along Gouger Street, so I randomly picked a Chinese restaurant that I haven’t reviewed. Based on the number of customers currently dining in the restaurant at the time, I chose Fortune Duck. A restaurant with very few customers often says something about the…

Ruby Red Flamingo

For those who intend on eating here, no bookings are accepted at this Ruby Red Flamingo. If you come early enough, getting a seat shouldn’t be a problem. The dining area is a combination of formal and semi-outdoor. We were escorted to the semi-outdoor area which consisted of a mismatch of decor. The glasses at…

Tangritah Uyghur

Tangritah Uyghur is located in a room the size of my double garage with a kitchen area concealed in the back part of the building. The decor here is very basic with a few decorative ornaments hanging off the walls. The tables were very narrow and the neighbouring chairs were too close to one another. The…
