We have had lunch at the Arab Steed, a few times now and have really enjoyed our time there. The service is very good and so friendly. Our meals have always been first class. We are going back this week and are looking forward to...their smiling faces and delicious mealsMore

We think the chef has used the recent covid closure to work on perfecting their fantastic crunchy schnitzel crumbing!!!!!!!! We still mourn the absence of the Oscar sauce from the menu but the pepper sauce was a hit! BIG plates of comfort food, a chilled...bottle of Vermentino, espresso martini to finish (sadly a little watery) .....ahhhh Friday night contentment! Don’t know what it is but this pub always feels like home. Was great to see the beaming smiles on the staff glad to be back in action again! Good, quick and genuinely happy service flows when there are restricted numbers of punters :) As customers we wouldn’t mind if the dining restrictions stayed this way!!!! (Just joking).More

Our favourite Adelaide pub proved itself once again. Incredibly impressed that even at an absurdly busy time during the 500 the food came out even faster and even more piping hot than ever!!The two schnitzels = 11/10. Unfortunately the whiting was a little bit overcooked....It was great they agreed to crumb (hate batter!) but ‘twas a teeny bit toooo crispy! Will keep returning again and again regardless!More

My brother & I were at the Arab Steed before we went to the theatre. It is a popular & reliable bet for good food & service. My 12 year old friend loves the booths and always suggests this place when we are deciding where...to go. My one issue in relation to the food is that as a pescatarian/vegetarian my choices are limited particularly when attempting to avoid fatty food. My Eggplant Parmigiana was superbly presented with lots of lovely fresh salad Vega but hidden underneath was the eggplant which had been fried in batter. This particular batter was ver difficult to remove unfortunately. Otherwise it’s a great place to go as is evidenced by enthusiastic support of many people. It is always busy there.More

Excellent food and beer. Friendly welcome and one of the best curry dishes ever in a pub situation. Quick service. Freshly cooked food.

All we wanted was a good pub feed and we got that. Parmy, bangers and mash and lambs fry and bacon. All dishes were large and done very well. There was a lady (kate) who was running food and collecting empties. She did a great...job. If you are after a unpretentious place that does great old school pub food, aswell as plenty of modern options this is it. We will be back.More

Thanks Phillip! Really great to hear you enjoyed your lunch and appreciate you spending the time to leave us this review. Look forward to your return!

We recently visited the Arab Steed Hotel, Hutt Street, city, several times and have enjoyed a variety of roasts. It is quite a hub and the meal is basic but very nice. The small roast is very generous in size but if you prefer and...want a very large one that is also available. The meal is usually served with 4 vegetables, not roasted, but seem lovely and fresh and well cooked. It has been very busy on our visits and appears very popular. The atmosphere and service is warm and friendly. For a good honest basic roast at a very reasonable price, I would very much recommend a visit.More
