Not to be confused with the village in England of the same name, Firle is a suburb located within the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, an area that covers Adelaide's inner eastern suburbs. Most of the restaurants that we have visited are located in Glynburn Plaza. Within this plaza are a Korean restaurant, an Indian restaurant and Primo, a café that serves Australian cuisine.
While it may seem to be a bit strange listing the name of a takeaway outlet, Chicken Coop deserve a mention because it offers one of our favourite Korean Chicken in Adelaide. The pieces of chicken were tender with a lovely crispy coating and there was enough sauce to make them very moreish. Other Korean dishes such as Tteobboki are also available along with takeaway staples such as roast chicken and fish and chips.

For Korean cuisine in a restaurant setting, Han Cook Korean Restaurant is worth a visit. The dishes may seem a bit pricey but their portion sizes are quite generous. One of the dishes we enjoyed was Stir-fried Spicy Octopus, which had a lovely chewy texture with a sauce that packs a potent spicy punch. All of their dishes came with complimentary Korean side dishes to enjoy with your meal.

As its name suggests, Haveli Indian Restaurant is the place to go to if you have a craving for Indian cuisine. Their Seafood Biryani is a good choice for those wanting something a bit unique. This dish features seafood, which is not typically seen in Biryani dishes at other Indian restaurants.

Oriental House is the only restaurant we have tried at Firle that is not located within Glynburn Plaza. This restaurant serves Chinese and Thai cuisine. A dish that we enjoyed was their Salt & Pepper Pork Chop, which had tender strips of pork that had the right amount of salt and pepper seasoning.
