3 Great Brisbane Restaurants

Home > Brisbane > Food and Wine | Restaurants

Brisbane is fast becoming a great city for dining and as a lover of eating out, I have three favourites I recommend you try.

Delicious Indian cuisine
Sitar Indian Restaurants

I usually stay clear of big food chains, preferring the authentic, unique taste and intimate atmosphere of independent eateries but Sitar Indian is an exception. There is no butter chicken on earth like the creamy, orange blend poured over tender chicken and rice at Sitar.

Step inside and be taken away with the warm aromas of curries, sweet sauces and the dim lighting inside. There are many Sitar Express' on offer, allowing you to call ahead and order take out, but I have only done this the one time and not only did I have to wait an incredibly long time, there's nothing quite like dining in at Sitar and enjoying your Indian cuisine over a glass of red. Sitar Kenmore were awarded 'The Best Indian Restaurant in Brisbane' - what more do I need to say?

JD Thai

There is a quaint little restaurant tucked away in Margate (265 Oxley Avenue, Margate QLD 4019), north of Brisbane City with flashing lights and waiters with big smiles and an item on the menu to die for.

JD Thai brings to you the most delicious coconut rice in Brisbane, so sweet and creamy that it is known to be ordered as a dessert as well as a side dish to curries and stir fries. There is nothing on the JD Thai menu to disappoint, from the fresh and healthy stir fries with chicken, pork, beef or prawns (or a combination if you can't choose), mouth watering Thai green curry, unforgettable massaman curry and the spring rolls are cooked to perfection -c rispy on the outside with a jam packed veggie filling. Thai food fans, believe me, it's worth the drive.

Pepe's Mexican
I came across this restaurant while running one evening. It looked like a house on the outside but it had the unmistakeable smell of Mexican wafting out onto the pavement - which made me want to ditch my trainers and run straight in.

There are amazing burritos served with a huge serving of Mexican rice and salad, the classic 'el grande' with lettuce, diced tomato and other fresh fillings in a massive corn cup, nachos, exclusive Mexican tequilas and beers to wash it all down and homely décor and a private outside dining area makes this place one of my favourites.

If you love Mexican, you must check out Pepe's Newmarket (184 Enoggera Rd,Newmarket.) These guys know Mexican and ask them for a tequila, and you won't just receive a shot glass full of the drink, you will first be informed on the strength and taste of each with a smile. Four star dining in Newmarket.
