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.

Great service with a smile. Food came out timely, but not rushed. Amazing flavours and great view overlooking the story bridge... even lucky enough to see a fireworks display :)

Good location, service was abysmal. My entrée arrived 15 minutes before the 2nd entrée then the third entrée another 10 minutes later and they forgot the 4th!! Main was further delayed.
The food was ok, nothing amazing but i thought highly over priced. Would not return.

The only thing we didn't like about Madam Wu was trying to change the booking. Trying to contact them was crazy as you get a machine and not a person. They rang back but I missed call and then you have to leave a message again. You need to have an actual person answer the phone.

We found the food that we ordered while beautifully presented was quite bland. Our overall experience was mixed. Despite booking a table for 5.45pm, our table was not ready on arrival and we had to wait at the bar although there appeared to be plenty of tables free. There was also a mix up with the rice order, no big deal but expected better after so many positive reviews.

We really enjoyed the food and the great views but found the service slow, after arriving we waited 20 mins to order a drink before ordering from the bar and almost had to for our second drink. The tables were also very close together so we could hear our neighbors conversation and vice versa, a little off putting. We ordered the banquet and really enjoyed the meal. We would go back again.

We went to Nassme Wu when they had a set menu so our impression was based on food that we did not choose. The food was very good and we would like to go again when we can order what we want.

This was our second visit to Madame Wu and it didn't disappoint. The food and service were great and we sat outside with beautiful views. The only downside was the loud family sitting next to us, with several kids running around screaming during the whole dinner and parents that were clearly unable to control or supervise them properly. We specifically mentioned that it was our anniversary dinner, so it would have been nice to have a little more quiet and romantic dinner, not the be sat next to the Adam's family.

Service was good. Food was good. However, I understand that the restaurant wants to portray a classy establishment, but not allowing their customers to take home uneaten food in a plastic box is sad. Such a waste of money and food. Get real.

Really enjoyed Madam Wu.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
All the food was delicious, and the service was fab. The occasion was a friend’s birthday, and when the staff realized, brought a desert that had sparklers and a special “shot” of liquor.
I would definitely come back, if only for the view from the balcony!

Beautiful food and view of the river and Kangaroo Point. Unfortunately the waiter was high as a kite and had his suspect mates in the restaurant waiting for him so we felt rushed to get out of there.

The food was great but only gripe i had was the waitress suggested my partner and i didn't order two mains when we said we wanted the beef cheeks and duck between us as it would be too much food. I found this odd as we obviously know how much food we can both eat and anyway she was adamant not to order two dishes so we only ordered one with rice to share and in the end it wasn't enough food. Perhaps in future the staff shouldn't tell people how much they can and can't eat and should let them order what they like

Delicious food, good service.
We had an indoor high table of five on a busy night.
Alongside our table was a 'roped off' stand up function of 20-30 people.
Unfortunately for us, it was pretty noisy.
I would recommend requesting a balcony table
to take in the city views & enjoy the delicious food & drinks that Madame Wu has to offer😊

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.
