An unusual name for a Chinese Restaurant but nothing unusual about the Chinese food served here. Located in South Brisbane just across the road from the beautiful Southbank Parklands, "Obsession" offers both indoor and outdoor seating so we selected an outside table which was a good spot to also watch the passing parade of people. We were attending a show... More

Returned after a very pleasant meal about 3 years earlier. This time we were left a little disappointed. Meals were bland and quite small. Not much of a selection for kids either. Service was great but not the nicest Chinese food.

Thought we'd try Obsession for dinner on a Friday night before a concert. On the positive side we were served promptly, it's a great location with indoor and outdoor seating and the food came out quickly which suited us. Sadly my seafood stir fry was disappointing as it had sparse seafood and lots of celery and very little taste. Coupled... More

We walked down little Stanley st with no booking on a Friday night and many places were full and taking details to ring when next table is free. Stopped for drink next door to obsession and decided to give it a try. There were tables free which would normally not be a good sign but we tried it anyway. We... More

An International and interstate party of ten were efficiently and tastefully caterd for. Not a culinary high point, but good sound Asian food with a light touch. It remains on my list of 'go back to'.

Visited with a friend for lunch, wish we hadn't bothered. Cocktail wasn't made correctly. The service was terrible and the food was just as bad as everything else. Waste of money, there's wasn't anything good about this place. The chicken was grey and black, the dumplings tasted foul and the soup was tasteless. Don't waste your time here.

We purchased a Scoopon voucher up to the value of $100. The menu was mainly Chinese with other Asian style dishes. The food we ordered arrived very quickly and was delicious. The service was efficient enough, but very cold and impersonal. I don't know whether this was due to the fact that we had a Scoopon voucher or not. One... More

Amazing service, the staff were more than friendly to help us when the table was a bit wonky by fixing it. Quick service, entrees were served and made in front of us within 5mins of ordering. Quick attendance and always with a smile. Hard to keep the misses happy, so her being impressed with the service speaks a lot about... More

We purchased a Scoopon voucher for 2 up to the value of $100. We figured we'd have a couple of nice drinks and get full on food. We booked for Saturday lunch. My partner ordered a beer and I asked for a specialty cider. We have no cider the waiter said. I asked for the apple cider. No cider at... More

Like everyone else I had a voucher for this place so I thought I'd give it a go. As for the service was very slow and scattered. We attended a Friday night the place wasn't even half full and took nearly 40 mins for our mains to come out. Yeah the food was great but I can also get great... More
