Dine among the clouds at Adelaide’s highest restaurant: Koomo. Located on the 10th floor of Adelaide’s tallest building, Crowne Plaza Adelaide, Koomo’s stunning interior is inspired by Art Deco and Japanese design and is where diners can enjoy views of Adelaide’s skyline and the Adelaide Hills while they enjoy the Japanese- and Asian-influenced menu from Executive Chef Patrick Chung.


Koomo’s modern Japanese- and Asian-inspired menu takes inspiration from Executive Chef Patrick Chung’s love of Japanese cooking and a childhood spent in Fiji, and the South Pacific country’s mix of cultures, cuisines and fresh seafood. Patrick takes the best of South Australia’s premium produce for a fresh, seasonal and locally-focused menu that is simply delicious.

Tantalizing taste of flavors. Pumpkin ice cream dessert was superb. Great place to share a meal with friends.

First time eating here and it lived up to expectations. Stunning views of the city and the service was very attentive. Best chicken sando I have ever eaten. Serving sizes were generous and perfect to share. Will definitely be back

Given plenty of empty tables at the time we were booked in for should have been given a window seat allowing for these tables to become free earlier for others to enjoy the experience seating arrangements not great too crowded

The atmosphere was nice, waiters were friendly and polite. However, food was average and didn’t seem worth the price we paid for. Hopefully it will get better.

New Years Day
We arrived with excitement for a level of service and ambience the design and publicity suggested the venue would have . We were greeted with polite staff - all new to the venue and seemingly unsure of menu and other. Our expectation of a Japanese flavour / style was short lived. Dress code requested but plenty of casually dressed hotel patrons with children about.

One Sake on menu was a great disappointment - the local pub does this better and we even needed to request to have chopsticks for the Ramen - as common cutlery the norm - not even the proper wooden spoon - nothing like to promo photo.
Changing $$ champagne brands per glass - we had to request to change the glasses - to not effect the flavour. Staff happy to pour over previous drink.
Entrees - large serves , Chicken Katsu sandwich , Pork Bao and Crab brioche all good, overly large when shared with mains ,.
After waiting sometime , we sent back the slow cooked " hard chewy " beef $ 30.00 , the $38.00 salmon although cooked well nothing surprising or different , $ 38 .00 Chicken OK , Ramen OK .
We didnt bother with the desert - too hard .
Splitting the bill across the table of 6 ( during COVID ) a chore and took 20 mins to pay and leave . They dont split the bill apparently which they tell you only when you pay - it maybe in little print somewhere -But I did ring to confirm that they could in fact split the bill.
For a large commercial hotel both the Public Holiday Surcharge and Visa surcharges were added to the bill. .
This place has teething issues and will be interesting how it develops in time.
No rush to return .

We we're very excited to be welcoming in the New Year at Koomo, as one of the newest restaurants in Adelaide. Welcomed with an amazing outlook across Adelaide and what appeared to be a beautiful venue we thought we we're in for a great night. Unfortunately, we couldn't have been more wrong! As the beauty of the venue peeled away to reveal unprofessional staff, terrible service and worst of all subpar food we we're left feeling rather disappointed. Having told the restaurant both prior to arrival and on arrival that two members of our party we're vegan, we we're quite surprised and somewhat disturbed to discover they had been served the same starter as the rest of us which was in fact not vegan. The mains we're incredibly uninspired, sides we're inexplicably missing and the vegan menu was also missing components (which is difficult to comprehend given the night was pre-booked with a set menu - surely the kitchen has no excuse to be unprepared?) Also quite shocking that in such an establishment not one bartender is capable of making a dirty martini? Overall an incredibly disappointing New Year's Eve experience, after spending close to $200 per person you would hope to enjoy a meal worthy of the beautiful location and view.

Would recommend taking the elevator to the 10th floor, having a look at the beautiful view, and swiftly leaving - avoiding Koomo at all costs!

Food tasty, although there could be more options for the lunch menu. Staff super friendly and helpful, but at times not attentive/observant to when our table required water refills or for dishes to be cleared. Nice views and beautiful natural light. Overall, I would recommend dining here

The Sando and Soft Shell Crab sliders were quite heavy for an entree. Taste of bread was overpowering as we thought the restaurant was focusing on seafood. Pork Belly and Lamb mains were rich and tasty but nothing exciting. Pork Belly lacked something on the plate to cut the rich fat taste that was overpowering. I wasn’t recommended to add a salad which in hindsight may have helped. The saving grace for my wife and I were the desserts - Matcha Cake and Wantons with White Chocolate. These were super delicious, made with care, extremely light, just the perfect hint of sweetness. Our host Wendy perfectly matched it with a dessert wine that left us wanting for more. So overall definitely give the entree and mains a miss and a massive thumbs up for the dessert.

It would've been nice if they actually did my request for a birthday plate, we didn't get any for my partner's dessert. Other than that, all good.

We dined at Kokomo on Christmas Eve, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is set on the 10th level of the new Crowne Plaza Hotel, and the views all around are excellent. Service is efficient and friendly, and the food and presentation is sensational, with prices being reasonable. We were charged for 2 bottles of wine when we only had one, but this was sorted very quickly and without fuss. Being in a hotel, some of the guests were dressed very casually which was a little disappointing but this is to be expected.

Would definitely recommend and will return.

The food and service at the restaurant was exceptional and couldn't fault the facilities. I did not spend any length of time in the bar but seemed to be very good although the service for a drink took too long. The view from both the Bar and restaurant was possibly the best in Adelaide and will be back for further drinks.

Love this restaurant and always gets great service and good food.
We had the ramen again today. It was still very good, but not as amazing as the first time.
Specifically, the noodles were over cooked, and the broth much lighter than last time. (Still yummy tho) the mushrooms blew me away the first time, today they were meh.
Would love to see more consistency in this dish over all but still enjoyable.

Service was attentive and couldn’t not fault it so will absolutely return and definitely recommend.

It was a solid experience. I expected a little more based on the concept and the slick digital presence though. The service staff, whilst friendly, are pretty green. An entree was forgotten, but once picked up it was served and removed from our final bill. Apologies came from the maitre d but not from the original waiter. Small thing but noticed.
Wine list was solid and not over priced. Food was on the expensive end but good potions and flavours. And if you're going to order waygu steak, then you're going to pay for it and it was delicious so we were more than happy.
All up- a good accommodation hotel restaurant. Being a local it's probably not somewhere I would head back to, but if I was in town on business and didn't want to venture out, then the experience was very good.

We were sat outside and promptly forgotten about. When a server came over to us, we still hadn’t gotten table water or ordered drinks and he was asking what we would like to eat.
Entrees were good
Ramen and udon for main were both horrendous, unlike any ramen or udon I have ever tried before.
Lucy, our waitress, was lovely and knowledgeable and helped select a nice sake

A menu reflecting a fusion of Japanese with a range of influences. The pork belly and salmon were delicious and oyster entree was a great starter. The wine list is well stocked with plenty of choices and saki if that's your thing. Unfortunately the food menu isn't as extensive as I was hoping for, in fact it's fairly limited, which is a shame given the broad range of Japanese cuisine to choose from. If your happy with being in a resturant with plenty of ambient noise then you'll be fine here, if your after quiet conversation then this is perhaps not the place.

Main meals we over priced and we needed sides which no one told us about. Eg. The salmon was $38 and came with just a few very plain vegetables. Saying that the Entrees were good and very tasty.

The only other thing as soon as we said we didn’t want anymore drinks, no one served us. Had to wander around the restaurant trying to find where to pay.

Breakfast was small but tasty but the music was way too loud for 7am.

It was one of the worst experience with service and quality of food expected of a restaurant.

Had to wait almost an hour for chicken to be cooked which was still undercooked in middle, but charcoal burnt over the top layer.
The avacado Koomo salad was underwhelming as it contained of lettuce leaves only with nothing else in it.

Maybe the chef forgot to prepare our food when we ordered and it was prepared in a hurry when he realised it.
