Looking for the best Asian food in Brisbane?

Mr. Wabi is a blend of sophisticated Asian fusion street food with eclectic cocktails, tap beer and boutique wine to cater for the urban professionals in the heart of Fortitude Valley.

Wabi means to accept the aesthetics and the beauty of imperfection. This connects a deep meaning between street food that’s imperfect in nature and accepting the beauty within as the dishes are upgraded to appeal to a more sophisticated palate.

Mr. Wabi is fun and approachable, with a focus on quality produce and service to encourage people to come together for good times.

Located in the bustling inner-city nightlife strip of Burnett Lane in Brisbane City, our menu showcases a wide selection of Asian fusion dishes coupled with a fantastic unique selection of cocktails. We aim to be one of the best places to eat in Brisbane.

    Fantastic night at Mr Wabi! Found this place through Google. Emailed Sab with a couple of questions and he was quick to respond. For a restaurant in a back street I would have never known was there it was bustling! The vibe was great, it was a packed house but service was awesome. We had the banquet plenty of food great variety and they were very accommodating with requests. Cocktails were a huge highlight, we will be back to try more! Thanks Sab and crew ☺️

    Fantastic welcoming staff, fantastic service and the food was fantastic . Soft shelled crab and beef in black bean were the best ever. We had the $69 per person Banquet and there was so much food and all fantastic. There was even enough for us to take back to the hotel. Absolutely a must try. Cosy dining. Loved it and will be back. Thank you

    More 4.5 than 4. Party of 2 and ordered the Plum Banquet. Food was impressive except for the sauce that accompanied the crispy pork belly. Personally, I think a more Asian inspired dipping sauce/gravy can work with the pork belly. It was good but maybe could have been a little better by keeping to the Asian theme. Service was attentive. Cozy place for a quiet meal before hitting the city at night. The beef bao was so good!

    I took my wife, her parents and our kids for a dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. We booked early and were seated by 17:30. The service was exceptional. The food was amazing. But sadly, we had to, on more than one occasion, ask them to change the songs blaring over the speakers as both times the songs were about profanity and sex and I don't know who the artist was but they had to use "F#@$" for every second work in the song. Not ideal for a family meal with 11 and 13 year old kids and definitely not the music my wife was hoping for on her birthday.

    I went out with a large group, 2 separate banquets were running including 1 person receiving Vegan substitutes and some ordered standalone dishes. There was a lot of variety, no dish was disappointing (Vegan gave it a big tick too) and I was more than full by the end. The dishes came out quickly but not so quickly that it was too much. The place was full but I didn't have to wait long for drink service. I was commended from my peers for my choice in Restaurant this time, great work Mr Wabi.

    Extensive menu, so glad for the vege/vegan options and the flavours were all on point. Ordered the salt and pepper tofu which packed a nice zing, the pan fried veg dumplings which were crisp and very sizeable, also the fried veg rice. All dishes hit the spot and I'd not hesitate to come back to try the rest of the menu options. Great space for casual catch up with mates after work. Keep up the great service team Wabi.

    Plum banquet great value for money. Mixed bag of really nice and some average courses. Peking duck spring rolls were ok, not a lot of taste. Prawn and pork dumplings good. Crispy pork very good, fried rice really good, Asian greens good. Bao buns with crispy chicken looked great but didn't have a lot of taste other than salt. We were not offered the upgrade to include dessert although was on the menu. Cocktail range seems to be predominantly sweet, even a tequila based one was spoiled by adding sweet sparkling (brut or sioda would have been better as a mixer). Staff were nice and friendly and they did notice that we did not finish our cocktails, asking us why and eventually (with no prompting from us) onmy charged us half price fir the two we ordered and didn't finish. Nice short wine list well priced Ambiance was ok, but missing 'something' which could make it great We will return and try other menu items, hopefully they will have updated cocktail list, added some soft furnishing to absorb loud table noise from adjoining tables but still allow some background buzz.
