Aussie Food

The lunch menu was pared back from the usual Aussie native style offerings. The food is beautifully prepared utilising high quality native ingredients. A must for any visitors.

The idea is wonderful; try authentic Australian cuisine while promoting consumption of locally grown or raised fare. Unfortunately, I would rate the meals mediocre at best and overpriced at that. Surprisingly of the meats we sampled, the possum was the star. The kangaroo was disappointing and the emu simply ok. I would gladly "give it another go" if the pricing... More

We had a trip down aussie fair. It was amazing; emu, croc, kangaroo and berries. Was pretty unique and special. Service was amazing! We went in on a groupon deal and then paid for wine to match. Was very reasonably priced for this!

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!

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
