“mmmm, crocodile”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

First ate here in 2010 and was so impressed with the food that as soon as I decided to visit Adelaide again I rang and booked in! We had soft shell crab, moreton bay bugs and crocodile - the sauces they were cooked in were lovely and the young lady who served us was friendly and efficient.

“Terrible”
Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Westernised slop. Never had sweet Tom Yum Gung soup before - ghastly. Main course lemongrass seafood had no discernible lemongrass, no garlic, no ginger, no chillies and had no relation at all to Thai food. Never again.

Worst larb gai ever and a beef dish. Service was ordinary but the food was the worst Thai I've had in years. Bad choice in a great street of restaurants!

“ATTACKED BY STAFF/POLICE CALLED/ Assault Charges/ Chased and physically attack over disagreement with a $14.50 dish not provided”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Will never attend Gouger st Chinatown again, absolutely disgusted with service, food was not authentic Thai, water tasted like algae, scallops where all white or all orange, dished falsely described. Complained to staff and was harassed all night. Explained my grievances and was refused takeaway service. Told staff not paying for a dish ordered by not supplied. Withdrew $9.30 for a $14.50 dish not supplied but billed for. Was pursued and attacked by 2 staff members who drew blood, slapped my face, pulled my arms,, punched my chest bruised me, cut me and damaged my handbag and dress. They also my sister and pushed her. The incident was filmed, $20 more handed over before they realeased hold of my handbag and arm. Reported to police and they refused to charge staff with assault on the grounds the Lime & Lemon staff didn't want to take further action. Disgusted
