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.

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

Fabulous food however the staff were less than friendly. We were also asked to hold our cutlery so they could change our plates. Seriously can’t imagine any other top restaurant ever doing that.

This was our 2nd year in a row having dinner with the whole national sales team at Madame Wu. The food was fantastic again, and the service from the staff was amazing always ensuring all drinks were full and asking if we enjoyed the food. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and whilst our booking was for 22 people there was no wait time or delay. Thanks again for another great night and we look forward to booking our next dinner with Madame Wu

The service was very average. We ordered clams, and had to request bowls for the shells and spoons. There were many other issues. We were not asked if we wanted more sparkling water (chargeable), but this was brought to the table and poured. Half a bottle was taken away when they were clearing up even though we were still at our table with glasses.
The beef cheeks were terrible, the other food was OK.

Our experience at Madame Wu was great. The staff were very friendly and the service was also top notch. We had the $90 banquet for two. It really was delicious. The only thing I didn't eat was the oysters but that's only because I don't like them. It was our 23rd wedding anniversary and the head waiter bought us two complimentary glasses of champagne which was a lovely surprise. Will definitely be coming back and recommending this restaurant

We had the $70 banquet. The first round of food with dumplings and fried chicken was tasty. The rest of the meal was much too rich, not enough light options. The dessert could have been a bit more interesting.

Sensational food and service. It was our wedding anniversary so we decided to have the $65 pp banquet and the food was absolutely delicious with a great selection. I booked the reservation online and where you can select time and include any requests you may have. We will definitely return to Madam Wu's
