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.

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.

Overall I thought the food was underwhelming. The lobster dumplings were dry and the rest of the meal was average. Great location but the food needs to match the view.

A brilliant dining experience that has to be tried to be believed. The food was well priced, beautifully presented and tasted amazing, the staff were very helpful and service was great without being in your face. It was the attention to detail and atmosphere that will keep people coming back! It was our first time but we will be back soon.

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

Great view on the deck though we did get a bit wet when it rained. Fortunately we had finished eating by then. The food was divine. The banquet is a must! Pretty good service too. Very noisy so better out on the deck. Will certainly go here again!

Hi. I love Madam Wu and have been coming back time and time again. I noticed this time that it was extremely hot seated at the tables behind the glass wall away from the breeze. My friend and I sweated the whole time that it was uncomfortable. Understand Summer can get very hot but maybe some fans would assist. Also it was really noisy with some large parties and we couldn't hear the maître d much at all. Food was amazing, as always!

Really enjoyed our visit to Madame Wu. Interesting twist on the cocktails, for example, a Sichuan margarita, which was delicious. Food was excellent - delicious lobster dumplings followed by crispy pork, both full of flavour and well cooked. Sides were good - delicious fried rice and crispy, perfectly cooked sugar snap peas. Nice, friendly service. Main course portions were too large so we wasted food, but other than that a really enjoyable evening.

Incredibly rude and arrogant waitress. Asked if we could swap some fish dishes out of the banquet menu..... no
We could swap two, as there were two of us but not three
Menu is heavy on seafood so we were limited, had an overpriced bottle of wine and an entree between us and left. They were t busy, it wouldn’t have hurt her to ask if we could swap dishes due to allergies.
It’s brisbane guys, not Sydney, London or LA. Get over yourselves and leave the pretentious attitude out
Wouldn’t recommend this place unless you want to pay over and above for poor service.
If I could give it 0 stars I would

I was expecting more from the restaurant as id heard great reviews. We ordered two entrees but only one arrived. The staff apologised. I think the duck was just so salty because of the sauce and was just 'another duck' dish, nothing wow about it. the BBQ prawns were nice. I loved the fried rice. Unfortunately, no WOW factor what-so-ever. not a lot to choose from either which surprised me. I really despise the 5.30pm and 8.30pm sittings as its not a great night out eating late or eating really early with a timeframe. sorry but I don't think I would go back, there are other restaurants in the city that offer better value and product. Those high sitting chairs were uncomfortable, fortunately we were put at a lower table which was more comfortable.

On arrival it was raining and water was coming through the ceiling into the balcony so we and a lot of customers were getting soaked and they asked if we wanted a rug to keep us dry , it’s a rug made from wool that doesn’t repel water. The food was below average rice paper rolls that fell apart 13 spice lamb that tasted just like normal baked lamb oh and it had mustard seeds on it . The beef cheeks were so Rich and tasted more Italian than Asian and drink service was terrible and not to mention way overpriced

Booked a table for 7 people on 1 March. We were greeted at the front by a very polite, happy and enthusiastic waitress. When the food came out we were impressed further. Lovely presentation, and very delicious - kingfish sushimi was the pick of the dishes that evening but the whole duck was Avery close second. The waitress serving us was very helpful and polite - best thing was she attended our table always with a smile! My mum was very impressed. Be definitely back again.
