The origins of South Bank’s newest Asian dining experience are steeped rich in history, honouring traditions in Chinese and South East Asian cuisines. Our restaurant is proudly named after the owner’s ancestral great, great grandmother who was, as the title refers to, Tai Tai.

Our location in the heart of South Bank makes Tai Tai one of Brisbane’s most popular restaurants to dine at before a film, show at QPAC or conference at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. We welcome and encourage walk-ins, however limited number of tables are available to book in advance.

    We had dinner at Tai Tai before going to QOAC to see 9 to 5. It was an easy walk to the theatre. The service was very attentive, the food was exceptional and the ambiance beautiful. Highly recommend for any occasion.

    We arrived at 5pm, were seated and had an entree by 5,15. Waited till 5,50pm but no main course arrived. Needed to leave for theatre, advised owner who was not at all phased, no apology. Paid for what we had and left.

    Ordered beers and both dim sum baskets to share between two people. The food was phenomenal. The flavour and the texture was magnificent. The staff were attentive and had great intuition for when we needed help. We were off to a show at QPAC and allowed 1.5hours which was perfect. Food ordered through QR code but option to order in person was there. There were heaters through the centre and the people watching is excellent.

    I have eaten here before and this time compared to previous it was disappointing. I was a little disappointed with the menu. The worst is that and it being a friday was there are groups drinking at the Bar which is beside some of the tables.

    We often dine at Tai Tai pre a show at QPAC. We have never felt rushed or that our dinner is taking too long to come out even when they are busy. We’ve probably had most dishes by now in the menu, I would recommend them all, most particularly the dumplings, cod and Peking duck. The servings are very generous!

    Great location for a meal before a show at QPAC. We had a light lunch including the soup, dumplings and bao buns which were all very tasty. The service was friendly and efficient. I would certainly make a return visit.

    Lovely food and an interesting location to people watch. Friendly helpful staff and they were very understanding when we were delayed on the M1 due to poor traffic (called them ahead to advise we'd be a little late for our booking time). Very popular and busy so there was a fair bit of a delay between the first dish and the second dish (only reason it's not 5 stars for service) - but the food is wonderful. Highly recommended!

    We ordered Buddha's Delight which is one of my favourite dishes but it was not a delight. There were only two small pieces of Lotus Root in the dish, there were mushrooms but it was mainly mushrooms and tofu. It had little appeal without the lotus root and there was only a little bit of colour added by a bit of carrot. However, the Angus Beef was very tender. The clay pot chicken was good but it was served in an open bowl when meant it was not really hot. The service was OK but not the same standard. Perhaps there were too many people for the number of service people. It was disappointing as we go there often but the table is usually booked under a different name. We were there on Sunday with friends so we do recommend usually to friends.

    We sat at our table for 30 minutes before anyone even came to our table, we explained we were on a tight timeframe as we had to be at a show.. the wine took forever to come out and when if did we had to wait as there were no clean glasses, when the food finally came out we had about 1@ minutes to eat it before we had to leave . Not a great experience
