Around the World in 8 Restaurants

Home > Brisbane > Restaurants
Published January 31st 2011

Multi-cultural Brisbane is filled with restaurants and food courts serving food from all around the world. When you've had your fill of the bountiful Chinese and Italian restaurants, try these less common cuisines.


The Jakarta Indonesian Restaurant (2/70 Brunswick Street) doesn't do things by halves. Sample meals from Bali, Java, Sunda and Padang while enjoying the Balinese decor and Indonesian background music.


Kathmandu Newa Chhe'n (72 LaTrobe Terrace, Paddington) serves authentic Tibetan cuisine for lunch and dinner and also sells a range of free trade goods (like coffee and chilli paste) onsite.


Experience traditional Middle Eastern hospitality at the Persian Restaurant (Shop 5 Harries Road, Coorparoo). Open for lunch and dinner, this venue offers authentic Persian meals and drinks as well as coffee fortune telling (available by appointment only).


The Scandinavian Bakery Cafe (Shop 9, Springwood Plaza, 3-15 Dennis Road, Springwood) offers full meals from a tiny $4.50 and also makes cakes, pies and flan to order.


Grab your alp horn and don your lederhosen, we're heading to Switzerland. Des Alpes Swiss Restaurant (47 Blackwood Street, Mitchelton) dishes up Swiss soups, fondues and traditional dishes like Zurich Geschnetzeltes (sliced veal with creamy mushroom sauce).

North African

La Kasbah (669 Stanley Street, Woolloongabba) serves a cuisine known as Maghreb, which is found in the northern African nations of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia and is influenced by Arabic and European styles of cooking. Order a meal or a banquet.

Sri Lankan

With restaurants in Kenmore, Bulimba, Graceville, Toowong and Rosalie, the Ceylon Inn is a popular curry house where patrons can sample Sri Lankan delights like pakoras (onion fritters deep fried in chick pea batter) and watalappan (a dessert made with eggs, coconut cream, cashews and palm tree treacle).


According to the Mundo Churrasco website, Brazilian cowboys (gauchos) would skewer and then roast large cuts of meat over an open flame, which they would share with their families. The dining experience at Mundo Churrasco Restaurant (63 Macgregor Terrace, Bardon) is fairly similar.
