One of several outposts of the Yum Cha Cuisine family of Chinese restaurants can be found in the Westfield Garden City shopping mall on the corner of Kessels Road and Logan Road in the Brisbane suburb of Upper Mount Gravatt. It’s a popular spot for a quick dim sum lunch while you take a break from shopping, for the eponymous Chinese yum cha or lavish banquet-scaled fine dining come evening. A good wine list and a selection of chef’s recommendations add up to Yum Cha Cuisine being an irresistible option for fans of Asian cuisine.
Lunch at Yum Cha Cuisine’s Westfield Garden City restaurant is never a dull affair, with steamed and pan-fried dim sum, signature yum cha dishes, Chinese barbecue and rice noodle rolls slotting into place alongside Chinese buns and sponge cakes for dessert. Plus, Yum Cha Cuisine looks the part too despite being inside Upper Mount Gravatt’s main mall, one of Brisbane’s biggest, using latticework partitions and circular features to evocative effect.
Classic Chinese soups, sizzling hot plate dishes, hot pot, meat, poultry, vegetable and rice and noodle dishes round out Yum Cha Cuisine’s comprehensive offering, but it’s the chef’s recommendations that we recommend you check out if it’s your first time visiting what’s one of south Brisbane and Upper Mount Gravatt’s most popular Chinese restaurants. Spice lovers should try the king prawns with XO chilli sauce or the stir-fried lamb fillets with special chilli sauce, while Cantonese cuisine is represented by pork ribs and seafood specialties by the pan-fried silver cod with sweet soy sauce. Find Yum Cha Cuisine inside the Westfield Garden City mall on the corner of Kessels Road and Logan Road – but be sure to book in advance as the restaurant is regularly busy.
It was very busy as it was Lunar New year but the staff were excellent. The food we ordered (seafood hot pot, calamari, dumplings and pork buns) were delicious and we got a great view of the New Year fireworks. We went as a couple but there were lots of families so also suitable for large groups.
Yum yum and friendly staff and great location and lots of variety. Lots of new things to try and lots of old favourites as well.
Order lots of small dishes and share ,food very tasty ,waiters friendly Jackey our waiter was helpful and very funny ,great place for a celebration !!!!
