Giving a gentle nod to Sichuan flavours and authentic Cantonese cuisine, Donna Chang unites a respected team of industry leaders from both international and interstate origins to open our new venue this July. Modern Chinese is the goal here, having sourced the very best local ingredients to create inspired dishes that educate & excite, with a wine & cocktail list that follows suit. As with the menu, the venue’s design pays tribute to old and new with a refreshed interior, alongside the original neo-classical features of the stunning Heritage-listed building in which Donna Chang resides. Truly, a dining experience that ignites all the senses.

The refurbishment work on the old building has created an elegant venue without being too over the top. The food is excellent -- fresh ingredients put together beautifully and very enjoyable. Very good wine list as well. Service is pleasant, friendly and approachable without being too familiar. Two visits, both very enjoyable and looking forward to coming back again. Great for a special occasion but also very well suited to just enjoying excellent food in a lovely venue at any time.

The wait staff are very good, the food and beverage offering is extensive with plenty of options to choose from. The overall service was fast, which is fine as they would be focused on turning over tables. The food itself was tasty, the calamari nothing special, however most disappointing that we both had upset stomachs 6-8 hours after, and the only food consumed that evening.

Our first visit to Donna Chang, but definitely will not be our last. Food was outstanding - some traditional favourites with a modern twist, and some new favourites. Fabulous produce and presentation, great service, amazing venue and great wine/drinks list. Thank you Donna Chang!

Food was great however we were seated in one of the private dining rooms and I think they forgot we were up there as the service became very slow as the night went on. We would have preferred to be seated in the restaurant downstairs.

Great food and service. We ordered the prawn Baos, wagu stir fry, duck pancakes and the fish along with some broccoli and bocchoy and we were all super happy with the food. The staff were very friendly and provided us fantastic service. We went for a team lunch and would definitely recommend to friends and work colleagues.

Another fantastic night of creative food and execptional wines and service.
Even though a very busy night, from arrival to finishing, staff were attentive without being imposing and food was spaced out with precision.
Would highly recommend this to family and friends as an excellent venue that exceeds expectations on all levels.
Keep up the great work Donna Chang

Wonderful, delicious food with knowledgeable staff.
The tables, however, are placed very close together so we could hear the conversations of the people sitting on either side, didn't feel particularly intimate.

We had the banquet between two. There were 5 dishes, the poached fish was outstanding & I don’t normally like fish. This is the best Asian food in Brissy. The service was great, not too in your face but still there when you needed them. Don’t forget to check out the bar downstairs, it’s just as memorable

Nice food, very good selection of dishes. Beautifully restored building. Unfortunate system where staff ask you to leave after two hours. Service not good on occasion - front of house person ignored my presence, staff didn't know what fish of the day was or what certain ingredients were in dishes. Sommelier somewhat better. Cocktails overpriced given the size of them (e.g. martini size so small price was not acceptable).

My wife and I were visiting Brisbane, short stay and we wanted to have a nice dinner on Sunday night.Donna Chang was a perfect choice.Interesting venue with stylish and friendly atmosphere.A good variety of food was a pleasant surprise and the service was excellent.A very refreshing dining experience followed by a walk and ride on the ferry back to our hotel room.
Next time when in Brisbane my hotel booking will come with the booking to Donna Chang.

Delicious food with excellent flavour and fresh ingredients in generous portions. The space is beautiful and the ambience most pleasant. Two of us had two types of dumplings, the calamari and the Kung Pao prawns and a delicious Grioss Gruner Veltliner to drink. Service was just right, attentive when necessary and discreetly observant when not. I am looking forward to dining at Donna Chang’s again soon.

Gorgeous food. Great service. Decorating is way off mark. Mixed foot surfaces. Ugly colour scheme on chairs. Cane would have been way more spectacular but come for the food and not the decor
