Unique with a very Australian flavour

The restaurant is in West End just min from the centre of the city. The menu was quite diverse however all had a unique Australian flavours and meets. Well worth the visit especially if you are a traveller to Australia.

Service was strangely slow for what was basically a platter of cured foods and dessert. The portions are very small, and the experience isn't as great as the atmosphere promises. Good emu though.

We were told this was the place to go for traditional Australian bush food, so we went there. We had reservations for 8:30, and when we got there at 8:20 we were told that the table hadn't vacated and they had just ordered dessert and we needed to come back in maybe 20 minutes. Luckily it's in a really cool... More

As a place to showcase Australian native cuisine, sadly we found the food average. The starters and palate cleansers were interesting and a nice touch. However, the entrees were disappointingly bland and not well presented. Mains were better as they were well cooked with good flavours. The shared dessert plate wasn't remarkable with tiny amounts of dessert. Sadly, it's not... More

We have been traveling early this year though Australia, and spending our last night in country really wanted to try Australian meat, got recommendation from hotel to try Tukka. We didn't have reservation as was just transferring though Brisbane for one night, and moreover it was Monday. When we arrived at restaurant around 18:30 we were told that without reservation...

Probably the only restaurant in Brisbane where you can eat typical meat such as kangaroo, crocodile or emu. The food is awesome and the price is not too expensive.

My partner and I had the "Great Escape" degustation menu with half-glass paired wines. This menu includes kangaroo, possum, emu and crocodile as well as native berries such as Lilly pilly. The food was absolutely delicious with my only very minor criticism being that the chef is a little heavy handed with the salt. The overall combination of flavours more... More

(Some you may remember that reference for beer.) Anyway, a very nice elegant and simple decor with outstanding food that is unique to Australia. The chef uses seasonal ingredients, native plants, native beasties, and lots of really good wine to pair with the Tucker. Love it. Located in West End of Brisvegas, it is a must for locals and travelers.

What a delight... Great Aussie fair cooked beautifully and fantastically presented. A selection of meats enjoyed by both of us. I have been looking forward to trying this restaurant and am pleased with what we found. The only down side to this restaurant is there is not very much parking in West End, so I suggest a taxi.

On Saturday, myself, my partner, and my mother had the pleasure of dining at Tukka. We partook of the "Discovery" degustation menu, paired with a half-glass each of the recommended wines. The wait-staff were friendly, attentive and informative. We were also well catered for, given our pre-advised time constraints, having only 1 1/2 hrs for lunch prior to seeing an... More
