    We celebrated a birthday with 8 people. Food was fabulous and the service was friendly and accommodating of one serious food allergy. Pretty good value rounding out about $120 per person including liberal amounts of alcohol. Highly recommended for such an event.

    Seating without a back can be quite difficult for some patrons, which makes your restaurant less accessible than others. There is other backed seating available - however the ambience in your main area is so awesome it’s a shame that not everyone can enjoy it

    We had an absolutely fantastic dinner! The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. There was a computer error so our order got to us a little later than expected, but the wait staff were very apologetic and even treated us to a complimentary glass of wine while fast tracking our order. We’ll definitely be back!

    Overall food is still brilliant. Per everything at the moment cost has gone up and portion size down. Ordered a lemon lime & bitters - only to be served a pre-bottled schweppes one. If they serve cocktails you'd think you'd at least have Angosutra etc on hand to make a proper one. Overall food is fantastic and the quality is maintained. Been here many times over the years.

    As an expat who lived and worked across Asia for most of her life, Gondola Gondola is right up there on my list of Adelaide favourites. The funky decor and laid-back atmosphere takes you right back to the street cafe's of Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh and the flavours are super authentic while still having the edge of a well-thought-through and upmarket menu design.

    We do like this restaurant and can highly recommend the omelette and Pad Thai. Some of the dishes weren't as flavousome as we'd hoped, but servings are generous. New years eve was a little hectic, so that was expected this time. Staff were lovely but stressed this time. Overall I'd definitely have it as a recommendation

    Eggplant was super oily, pad Thai was overly sweet. My friends drink came out straight away, whilst I was waiting for my drink for almost 20 minutes. Way too loud, staff could have been friendlier and more welcoming

    Lovely atmosphere and food. Minor disadvantages were that being sat in the walkway meant I was hit several times by passers by. And both our drinks were taken away before they were finished. Small amount but weird anyway.

    What a fabulous restaurant! We had the banquet, which was certainly enough food, but maybe because it was more quality than quantity, we felt that we were still able to breathe afterwards. All of the courses were delicious and well balanced, but the stand out was the crispy fried baby barramundi. Delicious! The staff were friendly, helpful, efficient and informative and certainly knew what they were talking about. A good choice of wines, that were reasonably priced and came in a decent size glass. A great restaurant- would definitely recommend! 😀

    I do not like egg plant, but at the insistence of the service staff, we ordered the salt and pepper eggplant and it was amazing, possibly only surpassed by the prawns. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was served quickly and was of a very high quality. I highly recommend Gondola Gondola.
