We were holidaying in Adelaide and staying at Largs Bay. Semaphore is just a stones throw away from our accommodation so we tried this restaurant after one of my relatives told me about it. It was quite busy and there were not many tables left when we arrived but that did not matter as we only wanted take-away. The restaurant... More

We have eaten here many times and the meals are always excellent. This time we had a green fish curry and a prawn red curry. Both served with loads of steamed rice and lots of crunchy vegetables. Beautiful flavours. On this occasion the waitress was in dream land; she certainly was not interested in anything but our menu requests. The... More

The restaurant is a double fronted shop with ample seating (not crowded) and good service. The setting in slightly subdued lighting but very appealing. Choice of menu items was quite significant with each of our 10 diners having a different meal. By all accounts everyone enjoyed their respective choices.

Haven't been for several years, we wanted a break from pub food. Dated bland interior and the place got busier on a cold night. Our beef and veggie curries were tasty and the quality was fine. For $19 I want to be full and the icecream scoop of rice and medium sized bowl of curry didn't match the price. You... More

Great food, good size servings and not expensive. Most dishes under $20. Seats are hard so if you have back problems probably need to take a cushion.

Went here with the young family on a hot summers night before hitting the beach. The cafe is small, noisy and fairly quick service. Large menu that comprises noodles and curries with little else. The style is Thai/Indian fusion. The satay sticks were moist but not char-grilled - a pity. The satay sauce was very peanut with little herbs. Samosa... More
