In response to an enquiry we made on the TA Brisbane Forum regarding where to find bush tucker near the Brisbane CBD, several responders recommended TUKKA, so Mrs. k. and I had dinner there last night, Sunday, the 18th of January, 2015. Just a short cab ride across the river from our accommodations on Herschel Street, we arrived at 1830... More

Visited this restaurant during a holiday stay in Nov 14 on a weekday (Thu). Not that much guests. Nice atmosphere (trendspot, quite busy in the streets...). Food was really exceptional. If you like trying new things you never ate before. Quite a good fine dining experience, I think they might still be on a way up. Service was a little... More

You will never find this menu offerings any where else. Perfect for the adventurous carnivores to sample protein from the outback; prepared perfectly by the chef. Very good menu, unless you are a vegetarian (this is certainly not the place to come if you are not willing to try new experiences) with excellent service!

We go to Tukka a couple of times a year always have a good meal and service, BUT lunch last Sunday was exceptional. Thanks Tukka

The food we had was more expensive than necessary, though it was truly tasty and very well prepared and presented. It would have been worth the cost if the atmosphere had been just as nice. We had quite a bit of trouble however with staff attitude. We were at the table with a recovering alcoholic, and when We said no... More

I wanted some authentic bush fare and stumbled on this fantastic little restaurant. I chose the "discovery" menu with wine pairings. Started with a nice amuse bouche of barramundi. The appetizer/sampler was a real treat: emu, marinated croc, and two preparations of kangaroo, along with four different types of desert berries including Lilly Pilly (riberry) glaceed, quandong (looked like a...

Went here mid-week for a late dinner and although it was later it was surprisingly slow & quiet, which was nice. We dined on a covered, outdoor patio. The dessert looked heavenly but we passed. There wasn't anything on the menu that really jumped out at me EXCEPT for the "bush tucker". It's more of an appetizer but there were... More

Excellent options from their Brunch menu- we had the Kangaroo steak sandwich and the Spiced emu burger. Both served with delicious rosemary salted kipfler potatoes. Very nice flavours! The highlight of the meal was the dessert of a deconstructed finger lime tart, very delicate and not overly sweet- highly recommend.

Tukka is the finest in fine dining, with a menu that is unique and delicious and service to rival any we have experienced. From the menu containing emu, crocodile and kangaroo as well as perfectly cooked salmon, it was difficult to choose. We finally chose a tasting platter of bush foods with llillypilly and many other beautiful berries and fruits... More
