A Restaurant that looks like a warehouse

this restaurant is not easy to find. You will need a map and then trust your instincts as the lane looks more like a back alley. But the effort is worth it.

Hidden away somewhat in Burnett Lane this is a little gem. Arrived without a reservation to a pumping venue but no problem just a short wait in the bar was the hostesses response. The drinks list was creative to say the least but catered to all tastes. The menu matched but wow the food packed a punch great flavors balance... More

After 2 days of mediocre food in Bisbane City centre we became desperate for a decent meal that wasn't deep fried with loud canned music, and found this on TripAdvisor. The food was delicious and unusual and the decor quirky and inspired. It will be a lasting memory of the city.

Being strangers in town on a flying visit to Brisbane we were reliant on reviews for a dinner venue. The Survey Company came out well and sounded our kind of place. Quirky. Adventurous. It's down a fascinating little cobbled alleyway, Burnett Lane, right in the centre of Brisbane's shopping centre. It's worth a visit in itself during the daytime. There's... More

So wonderful to have such great restaurants in Brisbane. This place is a winner. My boss found it on TripAdvisor and took me here for my birthday lunch today. I can't believe we've walked past Burnett Lane hundreds of times and I never walked down to see what was there. The décor is wonderful. It's a really nice looking restaurant,... More

Once you've strolled past a few trash cans in an unremarkable alley way, walking into Survey Co. is a little like stepping through the looking glass. The décor is dark and woody and relaxing. The staff are nice, nothing to write home about though. The food, however, is amazing. We had the corn on a cob for entrée, don't be... More

My son surprised me for a birthday dinner here. Didn't know what to expect. It was just beautiful, tucked away in Burnett Lane in the city. The waitress was friendly and very efficient. The food was delectable. The four of us shared all entrees, mains and desserts so we could savour each dish. For entree we shared Pork Belly Tacos,... More
