When you consider how popular they are, you’ll soon realize why Haven is so popular in South Australia.
When you think of a takeaway, you probably think of an American chain or one of the fast-casual restaurants that have become ubiquitous in the state.
Haven takes a similar approach with its food.
The takeaways offer breakfast, lunch and dinner for just $10 and $30, respectively.
While they’re often limited to a handful of locations around the state, they’ve managed to become so popular that the business has started franchising.
Haven is now offering takeaways at a number of other restaurants in Adelaide, including the famous Haven Restaurant, the first Haven restaurant in South Africa.
Haven opened in the former Hotel South, where it opened in 2017.
Haven’s owner, Ben Boonstra, says that the food is unique because the takeaways are made with local ingredients and they’re always very fresh.
“We don’t have that stuff here,” he said.
“They come with some kind of salad, or maybe a banana, or something.
They’re always fresh.
We’re doing everything by hand.”
Haven also offers a range of dishes that are usually not offered at other restaurants.
“The breakfast menu is really good,” Boonstras said.
Haven took over the former Hilton Hotel in Adelaide in 2018, which opened in November 2018.
Boonsta said the food was excellent and the service was good, but he did have one complaint.
“I didn’t like the fact that it was $10 for the takeout menu, and it’s only $5 for the lunch menu,” he told the ABC.
“You can get something for about $15 or $20.
So you’d have to go and eat for $20.”
Haven’s takeout dishes are usually made in the same restaurant, but the menu has been updated.
“It’s kind of a new concept, I think, for Haven,” Bonstras told ABC Radio Adelaide.
Boonstrom also said that the restaurant was able to expand to the other locations in Adelaide. “
Now we can have the same amount of food for $10.”
Boonstrom also said that the restaurant was able to expand to the other locations in Adelaide.
Haven has since opened new takeaways around the Adelaide CBD and surrounding suburbs.
“When we opened Haven, we started with just two takeout locations and now we have over 15 locations,” he added.
Haven was the first restaurant to offer takeaway in South Australian history.
“Haven is a really good takeaway,” Bongsta said.
While Haven’s menu is unique, its menu has also been updated since the opening.
Bongstras also noted that Haven has expanded beyond Adelaide to the rest of the state and the nation.
“So we’ve been doing great business in New South Wales, and we’re doing great in Victoria too,” he confirmed.
Haven also recently expanded into the Gold Coast.
The first Haven takeout restaurant in New England opened in 2016.
The new Haven take-away will be located in the New England location.
“There’s a great demand for our takeaways in the Gold.
We have a great clientele,” Bonsra said.
The Haven takeaway menu has evolved over time.
“This is our third location in New York,” BONSTRA said.
Bonsranas said Haven’s focus was on quality, which is why the menu was so varied.
“What we did was we had to experiment with our menu and then it kind of evolved into what we’re offering now,” he explained.
In the future, Haven plans to expand into other parts of the world, including Asia and Europe.
Haven will also be looking to open its first Sydney location in 2018.
Haven currently serves around 400 takeaways a week in Adelaide and around 120 takeaways during the week.
Haven’s new take-out menu has now been approved by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
