Madame Wu, in Brisbane, serves a fresh and tantalizing spin on contemporary Asian cuisine in its wildly exotic and stylish restaurant. For ideal starters, try an array of dumplings, such as the lamb dumplings with spicy Sichuan sauce, the fried fish dumplings with coriander verde sauce and the pork dumplings with corn puree, all of which are delicately prepared and perfectly seasoned. Some of Madame Wu's specialties include the pan-fried Mooloolaba prawns in nori seaweed butter with rainbow chard, the roasted pork belly with herbs, peanuts and hot and sour sauce and the tender beef cheeks braised in sugar and soy with black bean and chili sauce. Vegetarian dishes, like the stir-fried mushrooms braised in jorim broth with steamed tofu and the green beans fried with soy bacon, are simply delectable.

Madame Wu offers river views, delicious modern asian cuisine and great service. The lunch banquet at only 40 dollars a head is good value and servings are generous. Drinks are on the pricey side but served with the same care as the food. I've been twice now. Once for dinner ($85 banquet) and the lunch banquet and I would recommend the lunch banquet as it was best value. Dinner menu needed more time between courses and there were a few items on the menu that didn't meet standard. Outstanding dishes to have there are the chicken ribs, duck buns, lamb dumplings and on the dinner menu, the diamond shell clams were great.

A good spot for a casual dinner and drinks. The view is a winner and the staff are friendly and mostly attentive. Maybe we didn’t order the best things on the menu because the food was a bit ordinary. Generally though, a good experience.

A restaurant at the top of the "Favourite" List it's always one to keep going back. Great for catchups with the girls or a nice cozy lunch or dinner with your partner.. I had my hubby's 50th there in the function room and it was room from beginning to end. The food is delicious and the wine list is great, service is excellent and don't forget about the amazing views! Definitely a Must!! r f vc

We had the $40pp banquet and it was amazing, so much delicious food (there were no fillers on the banquet menu) for a very reasonable price. We had a table on the balcony and the views of the river and Story Bridge were second to none. Service was great, we were able to swap out one of the mains for something else on the menu that caught our eye without any fuss. We arrived hungry and the food came out quickly and did not disappoint. We will definitely be going back, and soon!

Service was outstanding, and the food was amazing. The view of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge at night is the perfect scene for date nights. The beer was, for my personal taste, a tad expensive but the rest was priced quite reasonabley.

Took my partner for a special night out. Gorgeous night! Seated right next to another couple who were both sitting in the bench meant for one. Had to ask to be moved. Duck buns were cold inside when delivered. We had another diner behind us swearing constantly. Was very disappointing.

Not really Asian like the name suggests. It’s more modern Australian rather than Asian fusion. Best if you want Asian go to your local Vietnamese or Chinese takeaway
The lady who served us was excellent

You defenitely pay for the view here, as the food was over priced and under loved. Dry lobster dumplings, flavourless ceviche.....very underwhelming especially for pricey it is
