While Currie Street is a fairly short stretch of street in the Adelaide CBD, it still has a decent range of restaurants where one can enjoy a delicious meal. Many of them are located close to office buildings, making them a convenient stop for office workers working at or close to Currie Street.

Pondok Daun Restaurant is where you can enjoy Indonesian dishes, a cuisine that is not usually seen in Adelaide. Among the dishes that can be ordered is Ayam Penyet which is notable for the chicken being lightly smashed to ensure the flesh is tender. The dish also comes with a serving of rice, making it a complete meal by itself.

A popular hangout with the locals, Pho SA fittingly enough serves Vietnamese cuisine. We enjoyed the Pho Tai a lot as the broth had the right amount of the dish's distinctive spice flavour and the slices of beef were tender. A decent selection of rice dishes is also available for those not in the mood for noodles.

More commonly known as The Duke, The Duke of York Hotel is where you can enjoy delicious pub-style food. One of the options for those looking for something a bit different from the norm is the Mushroom Burger, which has a combination of Oyster, King Brown and Enoki mushrooms complemented by chunks of sweet potato as the filling.

For those in the mood for Korean cuisine, there is BA:M Adelaide. Diners that visit during lunchtime have the opportunity to try their Green Tea Soba Bibimbamp, which as its name suggests replaces the usual rice with green tea soba. Those that are not so adventurous need not fear as the regular Bibimbamp can still be ordered.

Compared to the other restaurants we have eaten at, Edinburgh Castle Hotel is located a bit further away from the tall office buildings, closer to West Terrace. This place is one of the places that we are aware of that offers Eggplant Schnitzel, which had the right amount of bite to it set off by a crispy crumb coating.

That's pretty much all of the food outlets on Currie St except for Brown Charlie Co.
Leigh St, Peel St, or Topham Mall are much better. All lead off Currie St and feature some of Adelaide best restaurants.
