This restaurant is no longer trading at this location. It is now at Mawson Lakes.

Cheers Cut in Rundle Mall Plaza is part of a nationwide chain of cafes that specialise in Taiwanese street food, one of the most well-known dishes being Taiwanese Chicken Schnitzels. Ordering of the schnitzels is done by selecting your choice of crumb coating and sauce with the chosen sauce poured over the schnitzel once it is cooked.

Their Chicken Schnitzel was fried to golden brown with the spicy sauce we chose for the schnitzel giving it a slightly spicy flavour. The 8-ounce serving size we chose was a generous portion with a 12-ounce size also available for diners with a big appetite or for sharing. Take a bit of care when eating the chicken as unlike the schnitzels typically served at pubs, Taiwanese Chicken Schnitzels are cooked on the bones.

Ordering of their Giant Squid is done similarly to the Chicken Schnitzel but your desired choice of sauce is served alongside the squid as a dipping sauce. The squid had a wonderful crispy coating that contrasted well with the tender squid. To our delight the squid was cut up for easy eating.

Cheers Cut also offers a selection of smaller dishes that can be ordered as a snack or to accompany their Schnitzels or Squid. While their Sweet Potato Fritters lacked the slightly sweet flavour that we expect from sweet potato, the Fried Oyster Mushrooms were juicy with a slight peppery taste. The Fried Prawns were cooked as well as the Giant Squid, and were as scrumptious as the squid. If you prefer a typical Chinese meal with rice, there is a bento box set in which your choice of Chicken Nuggets, Fried Chicken, Fired Pork or Squid is accompanied with rice, egg, green beans and pickled radish.

Cheers Cut seems to be primarily catering for takeaway, but there are a few seats available should you decide to enjoy your meal at the cafe. The store is tucked away in a corner at the back of the plaza but is well worth seeking out.
