A truly outstanding restaurant, and will be sorely missed. Each exquisitely presented course an adventure into this great country. With true passion abound, Bryant and his team have truly created something great here. Evenings here were not just about great food, or amazing ingredients. Bryant often took the time to show us through the kitchen garden and explain what he... More

Visiting Australia, my hubby wanted to make sure that he got to try all of the native game. My sister-in-law took us to Tukka where we were greeted by the owner/chef. He was very eager to make our group of 7 feel welcome. He started us off with an explanation of the menu and got our drinks. This menu not... More

We sadly dined @ Tukka for the last time last night.....they will close on Sunday 26 June....there really is no other dining experience like it and one not to be missed. The food is so creative, full of flavour and beautifully presented. Highly recommend the possum entrée (just try not to think of what it is) and the emu in... More

I read some of the other reviews and some complain that it's overpriced. It's not, you pay what you get. The degastation menu we had was by no means cheap but extraordinary. Don't go to Tukka and expect quick service, everything there is perfectly crafted, it's not just food, it's culinary art!

This licensed bar and restaurant has a great atmosphere on a Friday afternoon for those after work drinks. Great selection of imported beers and fine nibble foods to snack on while you are there. music is usually good and can be a little loud at times. They do a good job to make sure the volume is not too loud... More

Went to 'Tukka' tonight for dinner. Was a bit apprehensive as when I arrived I was the only person there. Service was good and extremely polite. I ordered the seared scallops for entree and the crispy skin Barramundi for mains. The seared scallops (4) came with cauliflower purée, Lilly Pilly foam along with a samphire and fennel salad. The crispy... More

I was very excited to try a kangaroo fillet, as some sites quoted this restaurant tops. The food was on a more pricy scale, well presented, but underwhelming. The meal was very small and lacked starch ... Resulting us making toasted cheese sandwiches at home.

Truly grateful to experience something so unique in Brisbane city. Chef's passion for what he does was clearly demonstrated on each and every dish we ordered. In all our travels we love to find restaurants that clearly demonstrate the native flavours and dishes in the most passionate and unique ways. It was perfection. Big hint, save room for dessert because... More

We went here as a big family group from different parts of the globe so had a good evening. We all wanted to experience native Australian food, the ambience was nice and service very good. Crocodile starter was disappointing but for mains was good. Others enjoyed the platter. Overall portions were small, native Australian food meets nouveau cuisine! Could also... More

Amazing dining experience. Definitely get the meat sampler because it gives you a gourmet presentation of a variety of native Australian meats. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The sommelier took time to explain food and drink pairings and obviously is in love with what he does. This place is definitely an overlooked gem as it should not have... More
