The City is home to a plethora of
Asian cuisine throughout its streets and arcades ... From dumping and
teppanyaki connoisseurs, to Vietnamese, Korean, and Chinese eateries,
The City has it all.
Chinese – China City, Queen St
China City is a favourite amongst Brisbane locals that serves up some of Brisbane's best traditional Yum Cha every day, plus a great seafood a la carte Chinese dinner menu. It's super handy too, right in the heart of the Queen Street Mall.
Dumplings – Steamed, Turbot St
This new dumpling bar has just popped up on Turbot Street. The dumplings are patiently stuffed and hundreds of dumplings are pleated in the steamy kitchen out back. They come in three types; 'Harbin', pork and chive; `Lovabull', beef with various spices that "lack English names"; a vegetarian version called 'Zen' named after the owner Kevin's mother, a zen buddhist, as well as 'Pork Clouds'- wonderfully light and fluffy pork buns.
Japanese - Sake, Eagle St Pier
Saké serves up contemporary Japanese fare created by sushi master Shaun Presland, who draws on authentic Japanese training to present an outstanding mix of new-style sushi and classic dishes.

This is certainly true of the food produced at renowned restaurant Sake where each dish is sculpted into a tiny work of art – intricately perfect in its display and taste.
Korean – Madtongsan II, Elizabeth St
