Aurora was an amazing surprise! Beautiful building and nice interior. I visited as part of the Wine n’ Dine experience and was blown away! Service was great and very attentive, took the time to explain the dishes. If you go, please try the kangaroo! See less

Finally got to try this restaurant. We did the 6-course degustation menu. We got served the same course, so if you are sharing, I recommend doing the ala carte menu. The menu is not large, so you will be able to try almost all courses this way. It will cost about the same. Our course included: 1) Wattle Seed puff - delicious and crunchy. Could make do as a dessert. 2) Cured Paroo Kangaroo - dish of the night. No 'gamey' taste at all. 3) Shark Bay Prawns - the tequila mayonnaise ties everything together. 4) Choice Mushrooms - second time I've have coral mushroom and I'm a fan (especially when is coated with crunchy batter). I might even turn vegetarian for this. 5) Gawler River Poussin - I found the grilled chicken a bit bland and the saffron risoni didn't provide enough sauce/favouring. However, the fried crispy chicken was abut salty. The sweet grilled leeks provided a nice respite. 6) Dark Chocolate - very well presented but chocolate is chocolate. I was hoping for one of the other lighter, more refreshing dessert to cleanse the palate. *give the 'Unholy Water' cocktail a miss See less

Amazing food, excellent service. Well presented, well chosen menu. And the best Peach Melba I've had in a long time! Steak cooked to perfection, fish combination just on point! Only slightly detracting, $10 per serve for two slices of bread which isn't on the menu, but tasted wonderful so ...hard to argue.:) See less

Visiting from Sydney, this was a great discovery. Imaginative menu, exceptional local wine choices and intelligent service. The eel entree a sensation. Really liked the ambience. Recommended highly for visitors looking for great local fare. See less

Amazing building. Could have been exceptional. Sadly we felt underwhelmed. Food felt like a procession of side dishes, no cohesion or indeed wow factor.We must have been 'looked after' by 5 staff at least. Not a great experience to be asked if we are drinking still or sparkling 3 times....... service should be seamless, invisible and understated. This felt chaotic. It was not busy either so not sure why the dysfunction. One service member had a dirty white shirt. Staff were very friendly but just felt underprepared. It just was not the polished experience all the hype promises and I'm sure wants to deliver. Adelaide is a competitive and fickle market for the food dollar and the philanthropic story will only carry it for so long. See less

I have to be truthful here. Your food was five stars, and if there was more stars I would give it, however the service was absolutely terrible. It was clear the waiting staff had no idea what they were doing and it was hard to get a heartbeat out of them. We were not even informed about the tasting menu as it has hidden on the back of a tiny menu that was meant for play school kids. PLEASE retrain your staff or sack them all and get some professionals in. The kitchen clearly knew what they were doing, however the front of house were a bunch of Zombies... See less

From the moment you step foot in the door you are treated to a 5 star experience. The staff are welcoming, attentive and friendly. The food is a unique experience, every element of every dish thoughtful and purposeful. The decor and open kitchen is one a kind adding to the uniqueness. Would definitely recommend See less

Will I come back again? Yes Been there for the first time. Fresh ingredients were put into dishes by a chef with outstanding creativity. Impressed by asian fusion dishes. All the flavours from different countries cross-matching each other like a Symphony Gin cured Salmon: aromatic salmon paired with puffed fish skin. The puffed fish skin was used rather than puffed bread which is a thoughtful decision to intensify the fish flavours. Richness and Brightness were added to the dish via sour cream. Caviar adds variety for each bit Cheese and tomato cruskit: One of my favourite dishes. perfect balance btw sourness and sweetness, richness and refreshingness. The pickled tomato was stunning in both texture and taste aspects. Kingfish: a refreshing dish, perfect amount of wasabi, citrus, and a secret ingredient in the mayo ( not sure if it is szechuan pepper or not) give the dish with just enough kick without overriding the flavour of the fish. the Cracker comes with it has a similar texture to Prawn cracker, and a sufficient amount of seaweed powder was sprinkled on up. Heavy Asian twist ( Japanese and Chinese) was showcased Crispy rick cake: Most lovable dish in the course menu IMO. This dish clearly shows the chef has the ability and imagination to fusion Asian dishes all together incredibly well. Rice should be paired with curry is very common in Asian culture. Rice cake pairing with Kimchi is common in Korea. The chef was able to combine common dishes and create a new uncommon dish. I like it. Garfish: fish was fresh, using salmon roe and finger lime provide variety in every bite. The sweetness from the sauce and leek paired well with the delicate white fish. Seaweed salad with sesame oil on top gives this dish more umami, texture and the taste of the sea. Lamb: (no photo was uploaded because I forgot to take one before my first bite) Lamb was perfectly cooked. Aromatic Indian spicy was added to the mashed potato and give the whole dish an extra warmness. For me, spicy is extremely important to provide a lift to the lamb and turn the lamb flavour into a specific sweetness. This dish did achieve that criteria. A green refreshing sauce was served with the dish. It tasted very Indian but more pungent which also go well with the lamb. raspberry chocolate cake: overall a very rich flavour dessert. The sourness was provided by the raspberry powder on top, the jam in the middle, and the sorbet to balance the rich chocolate, but overall still a rich dessert. See less

Updated review August 2021: Foodies group dinner at @aurora_adl: we opted to order a la carte rather than tasting menus in order to try the dishes that we wanted. Worked out really well. Fantastic food and amazing service! . Okonomiyaki: their version of this Japanese dish. It was an interesting dish with fusion flavours. I think this was the only thing that I didn't 100% enjoy. . Gin cured salmon: excellent dish! The salmon tasted amazing, and the salmon roe was good! . Scallop pillows, with mussel veloutΓ©: OMG this was my favourite! The scallops were possibly the best I've ever had 😯😯. They were literally like eating clouds - super soft and melted in my mouth! . Kingfish: super tasty dish with a hint of wasabi that provided a bit of a kick. Well done! . Crispy rice cake in a coconut curry sauce: this was really tasty! Lots of bold flavours that worked well together. . Venison with Jerusalem artichoke: wow the venison was excellent. Quite rare, so some people might not like it, but we quite enjoyed it! And we absolutely loved the Jerusalem artichoke 😍😍. . Garfish: amazing dish. The garfish was soft and not fishy at all, and paired well with artichoke. . From the Braai: 500g hanger steak, cooked medium-rare. This steak was really nicely done! Super tender and full of flavour πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ€€πŸ€€. So good! . Coral mushrooms with cauliflower and semolina gnocchi: amazing flavours! The only thing was that the portion was a bit small πŸ˜…. . Sides: roasted baby potatoes - nice and crispy! Brussel sprouts - tasty and not bitter at all πŸ˜ƒ. Cornbread with uni butter - WOW the butter was sooooooo good! Very tasty πŸ˜‹πŸ€€. . Milk tart: I really loved this dessert dish! Not too sweet and subtle flavours. The biscuit was amazing! . Chocolate with chilli and raspberry: wow quite rich but not overwhelming! Quite amazing! . Lime financier: wow the best dessert probably! Loved the tangy-ness and the sweetness together πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ€€πŸ€€. See less

Beautiful restaurant with amazing service. Decor wonderful and very clean, modern toilet facilities. Portions were quite small so we're glad we over-ordered. For the price/size of the dishes, I thought the food would be extraordinary/more wow factor. Otherwise still quite an enjoyable dining experience. See less
