Tastes of Asia at South Bank

From colourful, fresh takeaways to casual or fine dining experiences that ignite all of your senses—if you love Asian food, get ready to be transported to your happy place at South Bank. 

Tai Tai South Bank

Tai Tai 

When a restaurant’s food philosophy is ‘live to eat, not eat to live’ you know you’re in for a deeply passionate dining experience. Honouring Chinese and South East Asian cuisines and recipes created by the owner’s great grandmother and restaurant namesake, Tai Tai, expect a full flavoured and diverse menu that’s perfect for sharing. Located on Grey Street just behind the Wheel of Brisbane, Tai Tai has great set menus, lunchtime specials and pre-theatre plates. 

San Kai Japanese Restaurant

Missed out on a cheap flight to Japan? Get your mid-town Tokyo fix closer to home instead at San Kai Japanese restaurant. Kyushu-born head chef and owner Tetsuo Inoue brings 30 years of experience and a whole lot of passion to his quest to deliver the very best produce from the mountain (san) to the ocean (kai) in a contemporary Japanese way.  

P’Nut 

Want your street food fix without the plane ride? P’Nut delivers all the heady aromas and mouth-watering tastes of a Thai street stall to your table, using only the freshest ingredients and authentic flavours. From their fragrant nasi goreng to hot fresh soups and salads that pack a punch, P’Nut is a genuine food safari close to home. 

Bamboo Basket 

Steamed Shanghai-style pork dumplings may be the signature dish at this South Bank favourite, but that’s only the beginning of your flavour journey through Southern and Northern Chinese cuisine. Prepare for hand-cut noodles, warming soups and sizzling stir fries galore! 

Junk

Take a bao, Junk! Pan-Asian banquets don’t get any better than this. Taking a seat at Junk  on Little Stanley Street, pretty much guarantees that you’ll be ordering 50 of everything, but we especially recommend sharing the Chicken Katsu Bao and Char Siu Pork Spring Rolls. You’d be mad not to.

Chu the Phat 

Treat your senses to a flavour holiday at the hawker stalls of Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan, in the contemporary cool comfort of the Fish Lane precinct. The light-hearted little sister of the much-loved Madame Wu, Chu the Phat is a far from ordinary dining experience. With exciting flavour combinations, dramatic interiors, colourful cocktails and open late—Chu the Phat brings the big-city vibe to South Bank.
