Chinese (Canton)
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.

Everything was perfect except I experienced the most aggressive and rudest waiter in my life.
I was on my anniversary dinner and as I went to the bathroom the waiter took the opportunity to come and try and flirt with my fiancé. He was asking her all sorts of private questions which disgusted me when I was told by her.
The moment I returned to my table he saw me and fled.

This behaviour is unacceptable by such a high class restaurant staff!!

I shall return but eat assured I will not let this guy come near my table !

Service was very attentive upon arrival, however slowed slightly as the night progressed. The food was beautiful, however the dumplings were warm instead of hot, and the octopus was slightly overdone. Despite this, I would recommend this restaurant to coworkers and friends - this would be an especially good venue for business meals.

Spectacular!

The new Quail starter is to die for! I will be coming back for a double serve. Eat the Quail with the Curly Flat Chardonnay 2016 - you will think you have died and go to heaven!!

Thank you Donna!

Unfortunately, there were too many misses with the food. Overcooked prawns, overcooked tofu, sauces which lacked subtlety and balance etc. Every dish we had was quite flawed. But the ambience is lovely.

Positives: Very attractive decor. Nice ambiance. Very attentive staff. Birthday acknowledged. Entrees acceptable in flavour. Banana fritters - fabulous.

Negatives: Wagyu meal inedible - so tough it had to be removed not swallowed. Special Fried Rice -ok but flat in flavour - we have since found out that we were not served the accompanying sauces for the rice...my son went a week later and it came with sauces...

Overall: The meals were good but not spectacular, some were incomplete and/or returned - therefore this restuarant is not worth the price tag.

We had been wanting to check this place out for ages but could never get a table. Not sure why.

Food wasn’t great, it wasn’t bad but wasn’t great. They forgot a dish and cleared our table away and dropped the bill on the table whilst we were still eating.

Beautiful building though.

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.

Our experience was disappointing, food was well presented but the taste and textures were average. Service was poor with waiters needed constant prompting as they seemed more interested in socialising amongst themselves that serving the customers. It just oozed pretentiousness and lacked any substance. Plenty of other places in Brisbane offer better food and service and at a better price.

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
