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

Your charming American maitre de is very persuasive if one is shy about eating kangaroo, emu and crocodile. It is quite a unique eating experience with some very interesting tasty treats. I would certainly recommend taking overseas visitors for the Australiana experience. Some Australian background music would have enhanced the meal rather than the thumping cacophony of a nearby club.... More

We dined here today (Sunday June 15th) for lunch having bought the voucher. It was great value and we really enjoyed the meal. Having tasted some of the different "Australian" dishes of Emu, Croc, Roo and Camel when travelling in NT, we were keen to see what Brissie had to offer. This is a nice little restaurant tucked into the... More

We dined with my honeymooning cousins visiting from Italy and keen to "eat Australia". With a number of exotic dishes on offer we opted for 7 courses degustation which included sampling everything. We tried emu, kangaroo, crocodile and rabbit. Sauces and salads included ingredients like wattleseed, rosella and other locally sourced delicacies No possum that night / fine by me-... More

Tukka is not to be missed if you are a foreigner visiting Brisbane. The food is uniformly superb, from appetizers to dessert. Wines complement the food perfectly. You will find meat, fish and fruit on the menu that are not readily available outside Australia. Try everything, even though it will be expensive!

What can I say? If you are coming to this restaurant it is to try some local and "rare" meats from Australia. Our table shared a few meals - Kangaroo, Possum, Emu and Croc.. I thoroughly enjoyed the Kangaroo.. if blind-folded you could mistake it for a beef Filet. It was cooked PERFECT to what I would expect and it... More

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
