Contemporary Asian
Mr. Mista is an Asian inspired, LA influenced lounge bar and kitchen that caters for the high-end patrons who don’t take themselves too seriously and prioritise having fun!

Our prime Fortitude Valley location ignites Brisbane's premier party precinct, offering shared modern Asian lunch and dinner dining in a gorgeous, sleek setting, with a high energy vibe that transforms into a cocktail lounge and dance club late into the evening every Friday and Saturday.

The name itself is a tongue in cheek nod to what the average Australian experiences when travelling in various countries in South East Asia, where we live like royalty and experience amazing flavours and environments - at Mr. Mista, we'll replicate this same energy.

Extremely rude servers throughout. Loud music blasting and it turns into a club at about 9pm. Food was nothing special, curry lacked flavour

Responded on 12 August 2019

Hi Lucy, thanks for your feedback & our sincere apologies that you didn't enjoy your experience. The music increases in tempo around 9pm as we head towards the club transition from 10pm, (which was relayed to you with your group running late for your reservation) but the ambient noise from patrons preparing for this transition also adds to the energetic vibe at that time. We'd be keen to hear more about your encounter with our staff as we take pride in providing quality, friendly service

Service was very poor and one server in particular was quite rude. Waited quite a while in between dishes which resulted in us actually cancelling the remainder which was not communicated from hostess to staff. Was super excited to try this location but will be very hesitant to return

Mr. Mista
Responded on 12 August 2019

Thanks for your feedback Caley. With your order of spring rolls, the message was relayed to your waiter which is what caused the mix-up as they'd been missed off the order initially, as was explained on the night. Once again, our apologies for the oversight. We'd be keen to hear more about your encounter with the server you mention in particular so that we can follow this up, & other aspects of service where we lacked on the night. Please don't hesitate to contact us directly

The food was good but the service was terrible. We order drinks when we first sat down and they took 25mins to get to us. We were only able to order 2 drinks during our seating as the waiting time was so bad, also our waiter clearly didn’t want to be there which wrecked the overall experience

Great food, service and atmosphere!! Only concern is we had a late sitting at 8:45pm and it turned into a nightclub from 10pm so food was rushed. This should be informed to customers if they are coming in for a late booking (ours was not by choice but availability).

Thanks for your feedback Benson!! Glad to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit to Mr Mista but sorry to hear you weren't aware of our transition from restaurant to club on Friday and Saturday nights. We do include this information on our website & social media platforms & in our email confirmations however your feedback will help us to ensure that this aspect of the venue is clear on all booking forums. We hope to see you another time soon!

Great venue for drinks and dinner with friends. Got very loud around our table as we were surrounded by a function group. Food was delicious, bit pricey for a few items. Service got a bit slack towards the end of the night, suppose that’s expected with a busy night. All around it was a good night.

Responded on 25 June 2019

Hi SamanthaA, thank you for your feedback on your dining experience. We'll certainly be taking your comments about the service slowing down for your table towards the end of your night on board and working with service staff on this aspect as this shouldn't be the case even if it is busy, but glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your evening with us. We hope to see you another time soon!

Mr Mista is a venue unsure of what it’s trying to be. Part restaurant, part nightclub - two things that probably shouldn’t be mixed.
If you’re looking for a place to catch up with friends over dinner, I would steer clear of here as you can’t hear eachother speak.
On a brighter note, the food was delicious and quite good value. Shame about the vibe.

Hi JohannaM, thank you for your feedback on your experience with us and we're really happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal! Our offering on a Friday and Saturday night is definitely energetic and lively in keeping with the LA influence on our weekend nightlife but can appreciate that this style of dining on those nights before heading into the club aspect later in the night isn't suited to everyone, whereas mid-week dining is more restaurant ambient. We'd love to have you join us again :)

Service was ingenuine and blunt, especially when charging such high price for average food and $18 for water. Seating area too small, I’d literally turn around and have someone’s butt in my face. Music way too loud, we left earlier than expected as we couldn’t hear each other at all. I will not recommend this place to friends and family, and will not be returning. Better Asian food in Sunnybank for half the price.

Thanks for your feedback Peta. We're sorry we weren't able to provide a better experience & will use this to ensure we work on areas some of our guests don't feel we've excelled at. Our weekend music offering is lively in keeping with our vibrant LA influence but will be sure to monitor this. Food is Asian inspired & we draw influence from the south-east to create a modern fusion offering. We will happily refund the cost of the two large bottles of mineral water if these were charged in error.

Unfortunately will not be returning! From the start the experience was a let down. The doorman who was also the usher to the tables was rude and not at all welcoming. We had booked a table and waited for a further 30 minutes before being seated to which we had to initiate our table status and it was only then that we were seated.
If the food was great I may have swallowed the negativity on the customer service however the food failed to deliver anything close to “good”. For how overpriced it was; I expected a lot more. The spring rolls were dry and could have made them at home on a Thursday night (mine would be better). Gyoza’s were very average and the Bao Bun is even more depressing. The fried rice was ok however there was no dimension and it was quite bland. The only saving grace was the pork belly which was very tender and had crispy crackling.
Overall this was a terrible experience - you’d be better off getting a slice of pizza from around the corner.

Responded on 20 May 2019

Hi Jaimz, we're sorry we weren't able to deliver on the great experience we aim to provide all our guests. As acknowledged on the night, our first sitting ran behind schedule causing the unfortunate delay in you being seated & our sincere apologies again for the inconvenience caused. We'll address your comments about the food & review with our chefs as these are popular dishes. Your valuable feedback will help us to continue striving for high quality & consistency in all areas of our business.

A beautiful meal and atmosphere at Mr Mista as usual. We enjoyed a Saturday night dinner here. We were a bit early for our booking but the staff found us a seat and attended to us straight away. We loved the food so much we ordered more. The beauty about this place is that you can try a bit of everything without committing to a full, large meal! I recommend the Tropical Bao and the spring rolls - the best I’ve ever eaten!

A group of us went for a drink and some dessert after dinner on a Tuesday night and had an enjoyable time. Though the overall ambience on the night was a little less vibrant than what you’d expect on a Friday or Saturday, it did still provide a great place to chill, drink and chat. Everything looked clean, up-market and on point. The service was very friendly and the food and drinks great. I’d definitely go back.

The best night out I’ve had in a loooong time. Don’t hesitate to eat here if you are thinking about it. The cocktail menu is diverse (Brad Pitt is a must have for sweet lovers), food is delicious and the service is super friendly. I was with a group of five and we got the banquet. Every course was great and left us super full. Can’t recommend this place enough.

You couldn’t fault the service, the two of us were seated next to a large group and were asked if we’d like to move away from them. Can’t wait to go back, although will probably order individual items off the menu

The food was a great disappointment. Our table of 4 had a tasting menu so we tasted quite a few dishes and none of us found the meals to be more than average. Presentation and service was great but that doesn't really mean much if the flavour isn't there. We found the music very loud, a very heavy beat dance music, and the tv behind the bar with the Jimmy Chang movie playing very unusual. My other complaint was there was only 1 female toilet for patrons and it does seat quite a few people.

Mr. Mista
Responded on 19 February 2019

Hi Alexandra, thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the banquet, it's a popular menu choice so will discuss with our kitchen team to ensure we're serving a consistent quality product. The dance music & movie is in keeping with our LA inspired theme which we highlight on weekends, especially later in the night, whereas the atmosphere early those nights, or mid-week, is a lot more low key. We also have 3 female toilets, 2 of which are located in the 2nd female bathroom.
