Not your average Asian food. Once seated by the friendly staff and given the menu you know straight away that you are in for a gourmet experience. The menu is not the typical 6 pages long of 10 chicken, 10 beef etc. The menu is small and there are also a few specials. I had the prawns in a chilli... More

We got in for their second seating on a Sat night and the place was busy. Despite the staff constantly rushing around we got sufficient amount of attention and every time it was with a smile and it was pleasant. Ordered the lamb ribs, soft shell crab and salt n pepper squid as entrees. All were well cooked and full... More

This venue was visited 3 years ago, my partner was there recently and truly enjoyed the dinner, so we celebrated our Valentine's dinner there last night. Maybe due to the busyness, the food lacks 'Love', well cooked but lost the finesse. Service was pleasant, though they did try to clear our unfinished food twice, must be due to second setting....

We have been to Concubine on numerous occasions when we have been visiting Adelaide - it is one of our favourite restaurants there. The cuisine borders on Cantonese but with a mix of other asian styles as well. The food is always so tasty and of course you need to go with a group so you can share the plates.... More

We decided to try the food at Concubine as it was listed with a high percentage of previously good reviews and chose to ignore the recent poor reviews. Hey, it's lunar new year and we wanted to treat ourselves. We ordered two main dishes of crispy skin half duck, which was one of the specials and a steamed barramundi from... More

Very modern feel. Staff exceptionally friendly and service excellent. The food was familiar Asian dishes but all with a bit of a modern twist and some nice specials on the board too. Well priced for the quality of food.

Enjoyed a wonderful meal at this restaurant tonight. Service was fabulous and the food was so tasty. Lots of amazing flavours and everything fresh and beautifully cooked. The staff went out of their way to accommodate gluten free choices. Many thanks! I'd be very happy to visit them again!

Ten friends for a special birthday banquet dinner marred by poor service and extremely average food. The staff seemed hurried all evening and it felt like they wanted us to leave, especially after being told that the kitchen closed at 9.30 so food would come out quickly (we only arrived at 9pm!) and they imposed last drinks on us at...
