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.

Have been to Madam Wu quite a bit over the past couple of years.

It is incredibly consistent.

Great food and poor service.......a pity really as it is in such a lovely location.

We had a fantastic meal here. however, I have coeliac disease and part of the reason I chose Madame Wu's was the gluten-free menu. Sadly, I had a reaction to something in the meal indicating there might have been some contamination with gluten in the preparation of the meal or the soy sauce used was of the wrong type or something like that. It is a great shame as the food tasted magnificent and the service and ambiance was really good but, because of my condition, I would hesitate to come to this restaurant again. I would strongly recommend it to those who do not need a completely gluten free diet.

I loved the variety of food to taste in the $65 banquet. So many great flavors and textures. I don’t go out much so this was a wonderful meal that was well priced for the quality. The dessert tasting plate was so much fun.

I was there on Friday 7th September under the Reservation name Peta Hollis. I believe I left my black reading glasses either on our table or at reception when I was paying the bill.
If you could look into this for me, I’d greatly appreciate it. My contact number is 0451045677
Or email me on the email you have from when i made my reservation.
Thank you again for an awesome night and if you could find my glasses that would make my day.
Many thanks.

A great place to bring friends visiting Brisbane, with a fantastic view of the Story Bridge. Highly recommend the banquets, especially for group bookings - couldn't fault the food. Sadly our most recent visit was dampened by the surly attitude of our waitress, though all the other staff we dealt with were pleasant and helpful.

The view to the Storey Bridge is gorgeous particularly in the evening. The food is fabulous as is the service. This is my favourite restaurant in Brisbane. Superb scallop dumplings and the best duck! The rest of the menu is also deliscious with great seafood such as Mooloolaba Prawns also on our favourites list.

I invited overseas guests to Madam Wua to enjoy the view, as well as the amazing menu. We enjoyed the larger banquet and my guests were very pleased with the variety and portions served. We had a fantastic view of the story bridge and enjoyed the heaters provided. The staff were exceptional and wine and bubbly selection was extensive. A great place to show off Brisbane and enjoy a night out with friends.

My partner and I went to Madame Wu for our anniversary dinner. We were greeted with a smile and a "Happy anniversary!" from the staff, then shown to a perfect, romantic table with a stunning view of the river and the Story Bridge. Following this came two glasses of champagne on the house as an anniversary present and absolutely delicious food (would recommend the duck in peanut sauce and Wu's special fried rice!). The heater next to our table made it feel like we were in a perfect spring evening rather than a cold wintry one. Definitely an anniversary we will never forget!
