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.

Our waitress was great, sadly I can't remember her name. The restaurant itself is super cool however the food wasn't absolutely amazing. The cauliflower didn't have much taste at all (usually I find cauliflower like this has lots of spices on it - this one is just crumbed really) the Viet bun didn't have much flavour. In saying that, the ribs were amazing and the tropical bao slider was super yum. Cocktails are good too.

Mr. Mista
Responded on 10 October 2019

Hi Caitlyn, so glad to here you enjoyed your night with us! We appreciate the feedback on the food and will take this to our chefs to consider when creating new tastes for our next menu. The cauliflower is intended to be subtle in flavours to complement the spice and stronger Asian flavours with many of our other dishes, however we can certainly look to spice it up next time around!! We look forward to seeing you again soon :)

We were given the wrong order.
When we were given the bill, were told we had to pay and leave straight away as next guests had arrived - we still had a bottle of wine left so a warning would have been nice, we even had to ask if we could sit at the bar rather than being offered this as a solution when kicked off our table!

Food was okay, went cold quickly, seemed I was just put in a boiling hot bowl but the food was just warm.

Thank you for your feedback and our apologies that we've not been able to provide a great experience for you on this occasion. We'd be keen to hear more about your interaction with our team on the night so we can identify what happened here as its usual procedure to offer guests the opportunity to move to the lounge or bar after dinner to continue their evening. Please feel free to contact us directly via phone or email. Kind Regards, the Mr Mista team

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

Mr. Mista
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 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.

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.

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.

Responded on 25 June 2019

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.

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!
