“Great food options”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Great place to eat whilst in Brisbane. Loads of multicultural food options at great prices. Walk the extra distance and skip the expensive south bank restaurants.

“Grill'd West End - for "LIVE" Music and great burgers”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Lots of fun to be had here especially on a Tuesday night when Angela Toohey presents her open mic night for "Original" music.. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, quick service, and music that makes you smile

“Nice to relax with good food.”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

If you'd like something very casual, well priced and high in flavor, West End ticks the box! Does have a homeless people issue, but outside of that its pretty darn awesome!

“alternative precinct”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

if your looking for something a lil different then West End is the place to be. There is an abundant of places to eat from small cafes to quirky restaurants. The Three Monkeys serve up delicious treats and a great cup of coffee. The Gun Shop is also a terrific establishment to excite your senses. Alternative clothes stores dot the "main street" also from designer labels to op shops. There are also a few pubs some a little dodgy but a couple of great watering holes. West End I believe does need a bit of a facelift. In some places it looks dirty but I suppose you have to have a little bad when most of the CBD is quite lush. there is quite a lot of homeless people by the looks of things and I have been told not to walk through "musgrave park" alone at night as the homeless sleep here (so probably avoid here if you can)... Other then that I quite enjoyed west end...

“Disappointing part of Brisbane”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

West End is filled with quirky shops and some quirky restaurant and ALOT of homeless people. The area is really pretty dirty on the streets. I rather be spending my day in Brisbane City or South Bank but in saying that, there is some decent cafes there, like the Banana Lounge and Three Monkeys.
