Friends & I ate from the Light Menu which you can have as brunch or lunch. The Kangaroo & Emu were delicious with portions very adequate for that time of day. We also had dessert which was perfect. The staff were very helpful & friendly and gave us a complimentary small taste plate to start. Would definiately go back.

My boyfriend and I were hoping to try kangaroo during our trip to Brisbane and a friend recommended Tukka. We had the Emu and Kangaroo and found them to be delicious and cooked well with nice side dishes but the portions were quite small. On the way out my boyfriend was already eying the pizza place next door. We did... More

Hi, we wanted to taste Tukkas menu before taking friends to eat there so we bought a coupon voucher however from the time we walked through the door and presented the coupon we felt like second class citizens. We were sat outside in the lane way (as we're other coupon holders) without any fans or air conditioning on a stinking... More

I went to this restaurant in a group of five. One of them was leaving Australia so we wanted to do something special. She chose Tukka. I am someone who normally never pays more than $20 for a meal, and who prefers to eat for around $10, so my arm required some twisting to go here. Once we had decided... More

We went there on a Saturday, and were happy to get a table at short notice. Two of us had the 5 course degustation menu, which I found was more than enough, the other two in our party even had more than a taste. The possum was surprisingly tasty (given their usually odour…), the emu was tougher than I remembered... More

Family birthday dinner. Seated at 7:30. Mains arrived at 9:30 only after a complaint. Whilst prices were ok the portions were so small I thought they were a joke. This is especially true of the entre tasting platter. The mains when they finally arrived were not hot. Wine was good but very high price. Had to make one glass last... More
