This bright, buzzing place hasn’t faltered for a second since opening in 2013. The fitout is industrial but warm. The staff relaxed but efficient. And it’s always bustling, but rarely raucous. The giant chalkboard menu shifts around the seasons and a selection of trusted favourites and surprising newcomers. Asian pork and prawn piled high with fresh herbs, or chicken hidden under banana blossom with the zest of makrut lime. Middle Eastern lamb with sumac, labneh and pomegranate. A Mediterranean salad. Colour and big flavours throughout, always elegantly arranged into a whole. That description will do for the wine list, as well. And on both scores, the staff know exactly what’s on offer, introducing you to things you didn’t even know you wanted. On a given evening, you might find corporate highflyers in a booth, a rowdy group of mates on the bench tables, and couples sitting outside, people-watching in one of Adelaide’s most established laneways. Peel St offers a friendly, generous welcome to everyone, every single time.
