What a wonderful unexpected delight. Had never seen or heard of this wonderful little gem at Newstead in Brisbane behind Bunnings. We had been recommended to go. We chose a banquet for 3 people and wow, wow, wow! The atmosphere was industrial and intimate. Lunch...was a wonderful unrushed and uncrowded time! The food was exquisite ! Small tasty morsels leaving you wanting more. A fine selection of small and medium bites followed by 2 mains and a dessert. Eadtern inspired delights and delicately balanced food mixtures. And tastes that left a bang in your mouth! The Korean crunchy chicken was incredible. I could have it as a main and been happy. The Lamb chops were incredible as was the fish . Each with some condiments and added tasty sauces. Our taste buds were inspired and left with delicious tingles all over our mouths. Dessert was also to die for.... sweet rich and gentle on the pallet.... coconut based with apricots and a mousse that was yum! An incredible wine list to choose from that suited the meal. The wait staff offered explanations and choices to enjoy. Could not say enough. This was a treat to savour and we will go again!More

Surveying top Asian restaurants in Brisbane for a friend’s celebratory birthday I stumbled onto a treasure called The Golden Pig in Newstead - an inner city area easily accessed. Sincerely sensational cuisine keenly priced with an excellent wine list and service The Golden Pig is...related by chef to the famed Spirit House at Yandina, just south of Noosa Heads The cuisine is just as brilliant albeit in more humble surrounds I’ll be back on my next Brisbane visit. Far to busy trialling a fabulous menu to take pics. My fellow diners- all world travellers were equally wowedMore
