My Tho City

My Tho City is a medium sized restaurant located close to the Entertainment Centre on Port Road. As you walk in the entrance, you enter the outdoor dining area which is divided into smoking and non-smoking sections. The inside is more traditionally decorated with an old rickshaw in one corner of the room. They’re menu…

Dragon Tea House

Knowing that the Dragon Tea House was relatively new, and that there were some positive reviews about this place, I thought it was a safe decision to bring a group of friends along to check it out. When I first walked in, I was impressed by the traditional and elegant decor. The table we were…

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…

Hypnothaized

Don’t be fooled by the lack of Thai people that work here! There could have been a team of Thai chefs slaving away in the kitchen, but that couldn’t be verified. Whatever the case, Hypnothaized is one of the best Thai restaurants in Adelaide. From the same team that originally opened Tongue Thai’d in Mile…

Mint Leaf

Mint Leaf is a brand new store that has just opened on Gawler Place. It’s so new that some parts of the store haven’t been completely renovated. Specialising in Vietnamese cuisine, this contemporarily decorated store seats about 50 people. The menu is not that extensive, however, I see this as a good thing as the…

Basil and Lemongrass

Basil and Lemongrass is a cafe on Prospect Road. The place offers all your traditional Thai dishes at prices that are on par with their competitors. The decor is modern and stylish, and you could easily fit 50 into this place. Tonight, we decided to go for the banquet, to get a good taste of…

Chopstix – Rundle St

Chopstix on Rundle is one of two stores in Adelaide of the same name, that offers a combination of Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine. Spread over two floors, this place is modernly decorated with a seating capacity of about 100 people. Service can be a bit slow at times, not because the place was busy,…

Rain Modern Asian Bistro

After coming from a late afternoon movie session, we were wandering down The Parade and stumbled across Rain. While looking at the menu from outside the bistro, the first thing that caught our eye was the extensive selection of items that were on offer. Calling themselves an Asian bistro meant they had a lot of…

Concubine

Fine dining Chinese restaurants are places I don’t usually go to. The place is worlds away from it’s nearest competitors that are just a few shops down. This stylish and classy restaurant is located close to the middle of Gouger Street, and offers all your classical Chinese dishes. The decor here is funky yet classical,…

My Yen Chinese Restaurant

Do you know how you can tell whether a Chinese restaurant is authentic or not? By the number of Asian people dining there. No Chinese restaurant is more authentic than My Yen. I’ve been coming to this place for Chinese New Year banquets for as long as I can remember and the tradition still continues….

Sugar Cane

Sugar Cane is a Vietnamese restaurant located on King William Street, close to the end towards South Terrace. The decor here is modern and yet slightly traditional. In line with the name of their restaurant, they have ornaments made from sugar cane in strategically located places. I particularly like the floor to ceiling windows which…

Nu Thai

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Nu Thai. As a winner of numerous awards over the years, this place certainly has a lot to live up to. Located on Gouger Street, this small and simply decorated restaurant offers all your traditional Thai cuisine, although I did notice they didn’t offer my favourite dish,…
