As the suburbs of Adelaide go, Lockleys may not boast the biggest reputation as a dining destination, but the Indian food scene has one standout star: Pride of Kolachi. Indian may be slightly misleading – Kolachi is the original name of Karachi, and thus they serve Pakistani dishes too – but the delicacies are recognisable to everyone with a love for subcontinental cuisine. The restaurant opens up at 4:30pm for dinner at its location on Henley Beach Road, so book a table, get in the car and head over for a superlative feed.
Eating out in Adelaide is always a pleasure, and for those who live on the road to the beach – Henley Beach Road, in particular – in Lockleys, there is a restaurant that is known for bringing the best of the Indian subcontinent to the suburbs. The location of Price of Kolachi is a selling point in itself – midway between the city and the beach, close to Adelaide Airport and on a major thoroughfare – and the menu is an example of the finer points of Indian and Pakistani food.
Begin your meal at Pride of Kolachi on Henley Beach Road in Lockleys with one of the excellent Indian starters: samosas, pakoras, spring rolls and poppadoms are local favourites. Follow them up with a Pakistani speciality in the form of beef nihari – chunks of beef shank slow-cooked in a fiery sauce with coriander and ginger – or a meat karahi, fried up in a wok. Adelaide has many great restaurants, and Pride of Kolachi is one of the finest – in the Pakistani and Indian markets especially – so reserve your table and dander over.
