Had my first experience of "Yum Cha" here at the "King of Kings" restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was glad I had a more experienced friend to guide me and advise you do the same if you've never done this. The area is interesting...More

We ate at the Red Lotus last December & then wandered around after dinner. The lights at Xmas time are wonderful. It was an excellent meal followed by an excellent evening.

Frankly, I expected more from this Chinatown, I was a bit disappointed if the size relationship of the city of Brisbane to the Chinese quarter in question. This is a bit far from the city centre but easily reached by strolling in 15 minutes along...More
