Tinderbox Kitchen
Tinderbox Kitchen is about showcasing and enjoying local produce and products.

Dishes showcase distinctive components whether it be our handmade ricotta, or house made Italian pork sausage and dry cured pancetta, derived from local free range pigs.

Our Brisbane designed and built Beech wood fired oven has a significant role in the Tinderbox identity. This is evident in the woody smoky notes it lends to roasted local mushrooms, oven baked leeks and spice-rubbed lamb.

Authentic pizza features frequently on our table. The handformed dough is made from an organic stone-milled flour to create a crisp light pizza base that is as delicious as the ingredients it supports.

Tinderbox is in the bustling James Street precinct, behind Harveys and adjacent to the Palace Centro Cinema.

The food and ambiance was what you would expect for this restaurant however the waitstaff were not unpleasant but certainly not over enthusiastic about serving. They did not add to the experience of eating out.

Celebrated my son’s 17th birthday at Tinderbox. We had a wonderful time, loved the food and the service is exceptional, especially that they staff all gathered around to sing happy birthday to him as they brought out a dessert platter with sparklers. We, particularly loved the pork croquettes and arancini for entree. Will definitely be back soon.

Well, it was a mixed bag unfortunately as there were some awesome things (like the starters), some great things (like the pizzas), some bad things (like the fillet steak was very over cooked), and one terrible thing (the chicken salad had gritty bits through it that tasted and felt like dirt).

A great find near the James Street Palace cinemas. Brilliant arancini and great pizza. The only downside was how long it took to get a glass of wine.
