Service and food was great - fried rice was a little bland but when mixed in with some chilli sauce it was really good. Bill was a little confusing as they charged tax on top and $34 for the ribs is maybe a tad on the expensive side but overall a great experience.

Absolutely fabulous dining experience! I heard about King Tea and wanted to go for around 6-12 months. It did not disappoint! Lives up to every 5 star review. Wonderful food, great ambience and setting

The food is superb! Kung Pao chicken and the crispy pork belly are our favourites. Highly recommended, especially if you like spicy food.

great food as usual. we've been here 4-5 times now and the food is as good as it gets. fresh, plenty of taste and quick on the delivery of the food. the beer and wine list could offer a larger range, rather than one option for Red & white wine by the glass. highly recommended.

Chefs served takeaways before looking after inhouse guests.
First course not received and only one main course for a party of 2 received with the 2nd 15 minutes later.
Waitress excellent, food quality poor.
Advertised as a dumpling venue, none on the menu.

Had a really nice early dinner! The service was really good, The food came out super quick and all relatively close together which let us enjoy each dish without feeling too bombarded at one time. The food was super tasty.. HIGHLY recommend the eggplant!! it was delicious. The beans and magic tofu were also possibly my favourite dish. Everything had a lot of flavour, however, the whole fish was smothered with too much chilli paste/sauce that you couldn't really enjoy the flavours or the fish because the spice was almost too much. Besides that it was great and fantastic value for money! Would come back again!

Food is awesome. Even my picky kids LOVED it! Service was outstanding and venue is "Very Cool"..if you ask my 17 YO son. We had a nice little room at the back of the restaurant and it was perfect. We will be back for sure

Everything about this place is always on point. The food is exceptional and with a wide array of food types covered everyone can enjoy something, the ambience with the red lights and visible kitchen is uplifting and vibrant, and pricing is great for what’s on offer. But the service is what keeps us coming back, everyone is so lovely, knowledgeable and sincere. A special shout out to Amelia, she just makes the experience even more special. If you haven’t tried this place, it’s an absolute must.

I was excited to take my husband here for his birthday dinner, I had booked an outside table based on the pictures of their laneway, upon arrival they told us it was closed due to Covid along with other restrictions like 90min dining and min spend of $80 per couple. Unfortunately it didn’t live up to the hype and Reviews, it just didn’t have the ‘special’ or unique experience I was hoping for and I don’t feel the value was there..

As a Chinese living in Brisbane for 20 years, I haven't had such nice Chinese food for a long while. The 3 dishes I've ordered was popcorn chicken, mushroom sauce cauliflower and pork ribs. All was exceptional especially the cauliflower. They nailed it on the wok aroma and the sauce.

Price was also decent with great service and good atmosphere. It is a restaurant i have in my back pocket ready to be used in occasions where I need to treat someone special.

Good food good cooked (just a couple of minor flow that didn’t spoil the overall experience). The entrees (crispy tofu and pork wonton) were spot on. For the mains, the pork belly was a bit on the dry side, the duck needed just a bit more sauce, the chicken with ginger and orange blossom spot on. In general a nice enjoyable dinner.

The most delicious Chinese food I’ve ever had. Our server was a younger looking guy and helped us stick to our dining budget down to the last dollar. He was extremely helpful and friendly. The inside of the restaurant is gorgeous and was the perfect spot for a girls night. Will be back ASAP!
