Further Information

With a casual feel on the inside, it’s easy to while away the hours at this lovely Goodwood international restaurant and bar. The cocktail menu alone is enough to draw in hordes of local diners – order creations like the Minted Santorini, Son Of A Peach, Hendrix Martini or a Dirty Harry. The wine list at this Adelaide gem on King William Road is also long and full of great varietals from both local and international vineyards, so order a glass or bottle and drink up!

Stop by during lunch for affordable specials including options like Faraja’s steak sandwich, pasta of the day, fish ‘n’ chips or quinoa and roast vegetable salad. At dinner time, diners can choose from smaller dishes called pots, or the larger plates – the idea is that diners should mix and match the dishes to have a meal that’s as communal as possible.

This international restaurant in Adelaide’s Goodwood provides the perfect excuse to get out of the house and try something new, just make sure to book ahead to get the full experience!

The food here is very different to most places. We selected dishes that we had not eaten anywhere else. So Good! The wine list is limited but that's OK as the focus is on food. Try the cauliflower dip and chorizo with Apple. The pea and mint said is great. they also have craft beers available. The service was excellent, lots of smiles and friendly staff. Then we get the bill. It was so inexpensive, i can't wait to go back

As is usual, good service with great food. Sad to see it disappear from the Goodwood area, but we will coninue to support it, in the city.

Loved the new location and the food and staff were great - as usual. Now that I've found the new Faraja location, I'll be back.

Loved the way the shared plates came out individually allowing us to enjoy the flavours. Booking through quandoo was very straightforward. Great art on the walls too.

Faraja has lively beautiful flavours in each course. The service is excellent. The atmosphere perfect for friendly and long conversations. There is only one (and this is relatively minor) caveat. The room is rather noisy. But apart from this, Faraja is always a perfect place to go for a first date, a long term relationship comforting meal, an energetic discussion amongst friends, a relaxing place for a single diner, or just for someone who enjoys food and art.

True to it's meaning Faraja's environs and staff provided a unique,intimate and comfortable experience.The staff were relaxed, curious,warm and welcoming.The international cuisine provided catered for a broad range of dietary penchants and was fresh, wholesome and delightful to the taste buds. The share plates added to the intimacy and coziness of the eating experience.I say when you are on to a good thing stick to it! If you haven't experienced Faraja's you really should!

If you don't visit Faraja then you are surely missing out on, what I would consider, some of the best food in Adelaide. The new location at Carrington Street is beautiful with both indoor and outdoor seating but the menu is the star and it didn't disappoint. The standout was the Nam Jin Chicken, delicious and it took us right back to our time spent in Vietnam. Service was impeccable and the timing on the delivery of the tasting plates to the table was spot on. The only negative was the Mojito just didn't cut it.

Faraja has always been a great place to eat at - the food is excellent and always fresh and offers a wide range of choices. Service cannot be faulted. I have followed them to their new venue. Whilst it does not have the ambience of the old house they used to be in it is good to see with the warmer weather the front section opening up to create a more inviting environment. My only issue was the acoustics in the new venue - very noisy when you have more than a few people in this space.

This a favourite restaurant for our entire family, who recently relocated to the city. Adelaide city's gain is Unley's loss, so go and see Mark and the team at their new location. The concept of shared plates remains with some exciting new plates added - thoroughly recommend the duck curry and the pork dish. Amazing food and great service, now open for breakfast from 8.00am Monday to Friday, there are now, even more, reasons for me to call into Faraja.

Disappointing service - felt ignored with disinterested staff: we were pointed to our table from the bar "over there"; we were not attended to with menus etc for quite some time; once we had our menus we had to wait again to order both drinks & food; each dish came out separately finishing with ordered salad (?); after final dish, all serving dishes taken away but left with plates to wait again; no offer for dessert menu; tried to get waitress attention without much response; eventually stood up to pay bill after waiting 20mins for further service - no inquiry as to opinion of meal. We have been to Faraja's multiple times before with much better service, & honestly, much better food (lacking in flavour last night). Sadly, we will think again before coming back.
