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

We dined in Tukka for our engagement dinner ( it isnt were my fiancee proposed to me but where we have celebrate it after he did earlier that day :) ) It is one of not many! restaurants that serve typical Australian meat and berries -KANGOROO, CROCS and EMU. It is not only unique in what it serves, the food... More

My first visit and certainly it was an enjoyable evening. It's not a cheap restaurant but has an excellent full menu of outback Aussie cuisine. The wine list was good and had some affordable very drinkable wines. For the main I opted for the emu and it was beautifully served and very tasty. My wife chose the kangaroo which was... More

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!
