Fantastic Szechuan flavours and service. Absolutely love the addition of the Szechuan eggplant to the menu, haven't had eggplant like that since I was in Szechuan Province! I would have loved to have been able to have a glass of champagne with my meal, but it's only available by the bottle. Also, quite limited white wine choices by the glass which didn't suit my palette, so I stuck with mineral water.
Thank you so much for the review, we're so glad you enjoyed the Szechuan flavours! We appreciate your feedback on the wine menu, we will take it into consideration for the future. Hope to see you again soon!
Delicious vegetarian/vegan food. The eggplant was amazing
Thanks for the lovely review, Jules! The Douban Eggplant is one of our favourites too.
We had the Tuesday 5pm Banquet special. The food was delicious and the value outstanding.
Thanks for the lovely review, Anne!
Service was terrible, waiter was mumbling everything so we couldn’t even understand her. No water was provided. We had the banquet and didn’t even know what we were eating as they didn’t tell us. Food was very below average. I will not be recommending this to anyone, nor will I be returning.

The environment is nice however, the food was flavourless and saturated in oil. We ordered 5 dishes and each dish kept getting worse. To add insult to injury there is a minimum $40 per person so you are not able to taste a dish or two first. Will not return or recommend.

For the Saturday night before Christmas we had a relaxing time and a good meal. The staff were very friendly and professional. The banquet was yummy with our solo vegetarian diner catered for extremely considerately and well. A good time was had by all.
Thanks so much for the kind words, Lisa! We're glad to hear you all had a lovely time with us.
This was such a fun - no fuss - amazing food experience! We were a group of 12 with a Gluten Free guest. We were super pumped and surprised that almost every dish was gluten free.
So much food - fantasising about my next banquet already!
Wow, thanks so much for the kind words Layna! We hope to see you again soon.
The service was way too fast
We just sat and in no time had out food order taken and all course came within 7 minutes ( no joke )
Our 730 date night was finished by 8pm
I go to a restaurant for a night out not fast food and feeling like I am being pushed out the door
This was the first time I had experience this so I hope this is not the new normal for this restaurant as the food is too good. Please don’t become a fast food joint.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We're so sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience! Would you mind sending us an email to email@example.com so we can discuss things further? We'd love the chance to make things right.
Great restaurant with a great menu. Dim sum were good and so were the mains.
Thanks for the great review, Russell!
Love the spicy bar food here and the sechuan dishes - would love to see more spicy sechuan snack food on the menu!
Thanks so much for the feedback! We'll take that on board for the future.
Simply the best. Great food and terrific service all round. Hard to beat anywhere in Brisbane.
Thanks Patrick, we appreciate the kind words!
Great place with very nice food and lovely staff. Kung Pao Chicken and prawn spring roles were delicious!
Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, Rebecca. We're so glad you enjoyed everything! The Kung Pao Chicken is a crowd favourite.
Menu caters to many different dietary requirements, food was delicious, service was attentive and friendly.
Great food, great vibe. Staff were pretty busy but did their level best to keep up with the crowd and never ending takeaway orders. If you're grown up, maybe come later in the evening. Try the dumplings. Even if you don't like dumplings - try the dumplings.
Food is amazing and great atmosphere! Good for sharing a banquet with a group.
Food was great, staff super friendly and great location.
Great service and accomodating for a large group of people. Food was fantastic. Highly recommend. Will be back.
Great staff helped us work our way through dietary issues, and there many options on the menu that appealed to us regardless of our diet restrictions. Food was fantastic with just the right balance of flavours. Best Chinese we’ve ever had. 👌
Amazing food, great service. We had a nice white wine, which is my new favourite now.
Staff, food, overall AMAZING!
Had the banquet. Was an outstanding meal! Will be back!
Absolutely the best Asian banquet ever. So much beautiful food amazing flavour and great friendly service
Lovely fresh food at reasonable prices. Great to find a place with many GFOs so friends with gluten intolerance or Celiac's disease can have a rewarding dinner experience with you.
Amazing every time! Amazing service, amazing food
As we were a group of 6 we got the $40 vegetarian banquet and it was delicious. We got so much food that we were all full and we each took home a container. Food was delicious and there was a nice range of dishes. Service was friendly and efficient.
The best Chinese food I have had in Brisbane. Great variety and equisite cuisine.
Had the banquet for 7 people. Loads of delicious food, great service. Will be back for sure.
Amazing food, packed with beautifully balanced flavours. We sat in the little side alley as we find dinning inside at most places to be too noisy. I recommend the side alley as you can have a conversation without having to shout over loud music. The staff were friendly and happy.
Food was fabulous and while the service was great our food arrived before I had even finished my first glass of wine so I felt like we were being rushed so they could turnover as many tables as possible
The food was all delicious and the service was friendly and efficient
Food is great, when having banquet a liitle more time between courses would be good.
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.
Great find! Great food, service and ambiance. Worth a visit.
I come here every month at least, it’s such a good place to dine with friends, I love the ambience! I would describe this place as “adult chinese” food, forget things like honey chicken and sweet sour pork. This is a little more upmarket but packed full of flavour and more authenticity!
Love it , amazing flavours
Hands down one of the best Chinese restaurants in Brisbane. The food is always delicious, the staff are friendly and the service is great. Can't recommend highly enough
Fab night! Great food and super service.
Amellia & Lucy our waitresses -- friendly well informed, who made our experience very special. Well done girls.
Very nice atmosphere with great food, fast and friendly service.
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.
