Great night out. Food was beautiful, cocktail oh so yummy & great service. Only draw back - tables a bit too close to each other.

It is good job we booked well in advance this place was truly buzzing, most punters were couples, after walking in the wrong door!! I opened the right one a little too hard knocking a table sideways, what an entrance !! Got everyone's attention !! Lady came over and it was our table I hit so wife asked if another... More

This restaurant changed its menu mid-2013, so, do not make the same mistake as I thinking it was still a major Japanese/Australian fusion menu. Tank's website has been updated but not others. Having said that the first thing to realise is that Friday night can be somewhat noisy with Santos et al all descending upon the drinking scene like lemmings... More

We went to Tank as a result of its listing in in the Brisbane Entertainment Book. Initially, all was good. Shared starter plates were delightful. Service was professional, the daily special (pork belly) was superb. But the daily fish (marlin) was a disaster, smelly, and accompanied by a tough potato mash. Confident that there was an Entertainment Book discount, we... More

My husband and I decided to give it a try Bc we were staying just a short walk away at Traders Hotel. The service was wonderful, food options unique and everything we ordered was delicious. I had the gnocchi with pumpkin squash and loved it. My husband got the sand crab linguine and he enjoyed his as well. We would... More

Good lunchtime option for classical pizza and good salads. Now that fine dining has been ditched it seems a lot more at ease with itself. Nightime dining depends on which night you go. Thurs/Fri are rowdy, with large numbers of drinkers outside in the laneway, but other nights are more relaxed to dine as the atmosphere is a bit calmer.... More

We have been here a number of times and food is always excellent. Staff are friendly and service was very good. I can't recall costs but seem to remember it was quite reasonable for the high standard. Only drawback is that depending on the time and day you go, it can be VERY noisy from people outside in their bar... More

I've had lunch at Tank twice now, and both meals were amazing. The first time I had the risotto and the second time the gnocchi. Both were absolutley delicious. The service is friendly and fast, and the cocktail list is incredible. The first time I went there I had the "Mister Green" which literally tastes like a cinnamon donut. It's... More
