Super Bowl Chinese Restaurant

A Brisbane-based mum and writer, I love nothing more than a day out with family and friends.

If you have a right raucous rabble of rambunctious revellers and are looking for the right restaurant to get your night rolling, then give Super Bowl Chinese Restaurant a go.

Group dining Super Bowl style.

Located at 185 Wickham St in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley (not far from the corner of Brunswick St), you will find their food is superb - "the best in Chinatown" according to one loyal patron. However, despite their excellent fare, at Super Bowl it's undeniably all about the atmosphere. Diners at Super Bowl create this vivacious, lively, spirited and contagious atmosphere - it's the perfect start to a fun night out with friends.

On the night we dined, the restaurant was packed, yet we were greeted warmly, seated swiftly and before we knew it, round one of our banquet menu was being enthusiastically swung around the lazy Susan of our large table. A couple in our group had recently embarked on a gluten-free diet, and the lovely wait staff effortlessly accommodated their needs.

This particular occasion was the celebration of my friend's 32nd birthday, and I dined with a large group of her nearest and dearest. The group was made up of mainly 30-somethings and there was animated story telling; frequent seat swapping; loads of photo taking; and of course the noisy happy birthday singing.

In fact there was a total of four separate tables celebrating a birthday that night (during the couple of hours we were there) and each birthday girl or boy was treated to a deep-fried ice-cream dessert, complete with lit sparkler and an entire restaurant of diners joining in the singing of the happy birthday song and the toasting of their birthday.

A big plus (and an even bigger saving, for the budget-conscious like me) is that the restaurant is BYO anything. So, needless to say there was plenty of toasting going on throughout dinner and before we knew it we had polished of every plate of our banquet meal and were also close to polishing off the remainder of said BYO drinks.

For me, the beauty of BYO and banquet menus is that no matter how large your group, the bill is easily taken care of at the end of the meal. So our group of 30-odd well-fed party-people was out the door with minimal fuss and ready to hit the dance floor - for at least another hour or two. With two littlies at home, my curfew has once again returned to midnight, and (sadly) is still set by my mother and now-babysitter.

Super Bowl is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, offering mains between $10 and $20, a range of banquet menus (our banquet was $25 per person) and BYO at $2.50 corkage per person. There is plenty of nearby parking available, with wheelchair access provided.

I can say without doubt, that Super Bowl is the place to go when you want a fun atmosphere in which to share some good food and plenty of laughs, and you don't want to have to worry about how loud you're laughing.
