Last minute choice on a Friday night, we had the Moroccan goat curry and the duck confit. The curry resembled meat pie filling and tasted similar. The duck was boring and served with some lettuce and figs. Overpriced and boring.

Good but not outstanding is the best way to summarise SQ. Not crowded during lunches, the large dining space provides a quiet enough atmosphere for healthy conversation during your meal. The twice cooked pork belly with shitake and soba noodle was good enough but lacked...anything to suggest any effort to make it a better tasting meal. The sauce was way too salty, and the pork belly pieces were too few. However, a previous item on the menu, peking duck risotto was delicious.More

Pleasant and enjoyable meal at hotel restaurant! Enjoyed a daily special of fritto misto (whiting, prawns and soft shell crab). Good service and pleasant atmosphere!

I eat here for quick and easy business lunches as very central CBD (located in Mantra Hotel in Hindmarsh Sq) and usually do not need to book. Plus provides the option to sit outside in the warmer months. The lunch menu is not extensive but...has enough variety to cover most needs. On the recommendation of the staff member, we both chose one of the specials on the day, the Wagyu schnitzel with chips. And it was superb, Yes I'm talking a schnitzel here, the crumbing was absolutely awesome being crunchy and not thick or a gluggy mess, meaning the meat flavour could come through and it was tender. Service was ok but not a big problem as we were not there for the dining experience. There is also an adjacent bar if wish to have before after drinks with lounge seating.More

Food was nice. Service ok. Disappointed that the coffee machine was “shut down” so we couldn’t have a post meal coffee (it wasn’t late by any means!). The number of customers in this restaurant must be the difference between astute service or desultory service. We...were the only ones there unfortunately.More

Definitely should dine here if you are staying at the Mantra. Not great ambience but great food and wine and convenience more than make up for it.
