A suburb of Adelaide located within the City of Charles Sturt, Hindmarsh offers a decent selection of restaurants and cafes. Many of the restaurants we have eaten at are located relatively close to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, making them a convenient place to enjoy a meal before or after a show.
Despite being located off the main road, The Omni is a popular place for diners looking for delicious Italian dishes and Aussie favourites such as schnitzel and burger. A dish we enjoyed there was Pollo Boscaiola, which featured succulent pieces of chicken with bacon and roasted capsicum tossed in a rose sauce with a pasta of your choice.

Befitting its name, Taste of Bollywood Restaurant is where you can enjoy Indian cuisine. The restaurant is able to customise the spiciness of their dishes to suit your taste. One of the dishes that can be enjoyed there is Beef Vindaloo, which had the spicy kick you would expect from Vindaloo but not so much that it is difficult to eat. Be aware the restaurant has shifted location since the article's submission; it is now located at 130 Port Road.

For those wanting "simple" Australian fare, you can't go wrong with the Hindmarsh branch of Nordburger. We found their burgers to be good value for money. Among their burgers is the Mushroom Burger, which features a juicy panko-crumbed Portobello Mushroom complemented by coleslaw, mustard, ketchup and the restaurant's Nord sauce.

Located near Nordburger, My Tho City Restaurant is a good place to enjoy Vietnamese cuisine. This restaurant offers the rarely seen crocodile meat in some of their dishes. One of the dishes on their menu is Traditional Pacific Dori Fish Cutlet, which had cutlets of Pacific Dori whose flesh could easily be separated from the bones, served in a sauce that subtly enhanced their flavour.

Compared to the other restaurants we have eaten at, Zenhouse Vegetarian Fusion is located a fair bit further away from the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. This restaurant specialises in vegetarian dishes. Their Sweet & Sour VSFC (Vegetarian Soy Fried Chicken) consists of chunks of soy nuggets that mimicked the texture of their namesake, partnered well by a well-balanced sweet and sour sauce. Western-style dishes such as Tempeh Schnitzel Burger are available too.
