About

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.

It was our second visit to Madame Wu’s and we found the service really nice especially the Irish waiter and the girls were nice. So friendly and kind to our son - it was his birthday. The only thing I found if a fault was the mushroom and tofu main vegetarian soup had a stringy vegetable in it in large clumps which was a bit strange to eat. Thank you for a nice evening.

Pork was very tough and the wine list is way overpriced. Worst part was being kicked out when the chefs set the kitchen alight? Fire brigade etc. smoke everywhere.

We enjoyed our family birthday meal at Madame Wu. The food was excellent and the service absolutely perfect. It's pricey but probably what you would expect for fine dining. The noise level was very high on a Saturday night.

Beautiful food, attentive service, nice venue and view. We had the lunch special, and our only complaint is that while the different dishes were listed on the website when making the reservation and maybe somewhere in the restaurant on a black board (but not at the table), the waiters didn't explain when serving the dishes what was being served. so a bit of a guessing game, but a really tasty one :-)

We went to Madame Wu's for a business dinner, which my personal assistant booked. When the waiter came he told us that all parties of 8 or more are required to order the banquet. I asked him if they would make an exception since we weren't aware of that - it was a Monday night at 6pm and not that busy. After checking with the chef, he returned and sternly declined to do so. Then he started lecturing me, saying that he checked and we booked online and my assistant would have checked a box acknowledging that we would order the banquet. We ended up staying, but we paid over $700 for dinner. The food was good, but the service was horrible and I can't imagine ever returning.

Celebrated with good friends with a lunch time banquet. Everything about our lunch experience was fabulous from start to finish. The service was outstanding with any request taken care of with ease. The food was delicious, just as expected. Delightful and fun modern Asian ambience. I'll be back, hopefully soon.

Lovely food for the most part, and very good service.
However, our lobster dumplings were undercooked so the dumplings were a little firm and chewy

We have been going to madame wu for years and always loved it. Went there on the weekend for lunch and the service took forever and we were starving by the time the food came out. We did the set lunch banquet and it took so long we ended up leaving before the dessert even came out. Food was very average and there wasn’t enough we were all still hungry after the mains . I was very disappointed and can only hope maybe it was just a bad day
