Amazing place, we just walked in and were greeted warmly the whole time, the staff were helpful, the food was awesome, with the spice heat adjusted to what you want, the green prawn curry was one of the best I have had, the laksa full of flavour, tried the sticky rice with mango for dessert, that was really nice, my favourite place from now on

After reading favourable reviews on Trip Advisor decided to give Social Street S2 a visit.
Went with a group of 5 ordering 6 entrees and 6 different meals which were shared. As such gave the menu a fair work over.
At the end left a little disappointed.
Pick of the meals was Chu Chee Prawns which was a deep fried medley of prawns and vegetables. Nice to share but a lot of deep fried as a meal unto itself.
Amongst the meals was a fish cake entree that was rubbery and actually unpleasant. The Sea Flower entree presented nicely but not exceptional on the palette. Also were a trio of curries roast duck, green chicken and red beef. The green chicken was particularly tasteless and most of the table agreed a better version could be achieved from a store bought packet of paste. Both the duck and beef were watery and consisted of very thin and small slices of meat the flavour of which was lost in the sauce.
We accompanied the meal with a $38 bottle of wine (one of the cheapest on the menu). Total cost for 5 people $220. Not extravagant but our group felt about 10-15% over priced for the quality and quantity of meals served.
The meals presented as bland looking and could be brightened up with some coriander and chilli garnish or the like.
On a positive note the staff were friendly and attentive and one more thing the premises is two storey if dining upstairs a steep set of steps must be traversed which may be difficult for the aged or infirm.
I doubt if I would return to this establishment.

Lily is absolutely wonderful, her manner is just incredible and we often have the soup and pad thai from here. Highly recommend if you want great food with wonderful service.

I found S2 couple months ago and become big fun. I've tried most of the dishes. My favorites are red curry, tom yum soup, chuchee prawn, and all the entrees worth a try. Service really really good, very polite patient and thoughtful. Definitely one of my favorite spots in Adelaide.

Food is authentic. Love the tom yum. But waiting is a bit long and serve id a bit small.
Staff named Summer is very helpful to carry the big take away box to the car for me since I had to carry a toddler myself. Really appreciated.
