Tucked down a laneway close to Rundle Mall's famous "Mall's Balls", Lindes Lane is a great place to enjoy a wide range of pub-style foods, along with dishes that you can expect to see at more "upmarket" restaurants. In addition to their main menu, the bar also has a selection of breakfast dishes available from 10am – 3pm during summer weekends.
We enjoyed the quality of the soft-shell crab in their Soft Shell Crab Burger. It was fried to golden brown and tasty. The addition of kimchi gave the burger a bit of an Asian flair; its spiciness was alleviated by the kewpie mayonnaise. The fries served with the burger added to the enjoyment of the dish, with its crisp exterior contrasting well with the fluffy interior.

Great for sharing, the prawns in the Chorizo and Prawn Pizza were of a good size and had the fresh flavour you expect from good seafood. The chorizo sausage added a smoky flavour to the pizza and the scattering of basil gave the pizza a fresh appearance. There was enough chilli to give the pizza a bit of a spicy kick. If you like it to be spicier, you can request for dried chilli to sprinkle on the pizza.

The crisp coating of the chicken fillet strips in their Panko Chicken Burger set off the flesh perfectly, with the Sriracha mayonnaise adding a spicy flavour that was not too intense. The most notable part of the burger was the pineapple salsa, whose sweetness was great for tempering the spiciness of the Sriracha mayonnaise. Accompanying the burger was fries, which were of the same quality as those served with the Soft Shell Crab Burger.

Coming in a serving of four, the texture of the filling of their Arancini was not too thick and the mushrooms included in the filling gave it a delightful earthy flavour. The earthy flavour was enhanced by a topping of fried Portobello mushrooms and a mushroom mayonnaise that was not too creamy.

One of the snack options available, the size of the chicken strips in their Popcorn Chicken was surprisingly generous. They were cooked as well as the one in their Panko Chicken Burger. Served alongside the chicken was some spicy mayonnaise that the chicken can be dipped in to give it a spicy kick.

Another of the snack dishes, the Cauliflower Fritters, were of a good size and had the right amount of bite to them. While the chipotle yoghurt the Cauliflower Fritters is served on may suggest a spicy taste, the degree of spiciness is actually quite mild allowing them to be enjoyed by those not used to spicy foods.

For seating, you can either choose to sit in the cosy indoor area or in the outdoor setting, which is great when the weather is good and there is a breeze wafting through the laneway. We booked our table through Dimmi weekly flash sales and enjoyed 50% off our total bill.
