after fending off about 4 atempts to take the order before we were ready, the food took a long time, then almost all of it was cold. the room was buzy but looking around almost no asian faces, that should have been a tip off. The first dish was inedible, a battered deep fried chicken that tasted of flour. slightly... More

My first time eating Yum Cha and it was delicious. Excellent lunchtime food. Not too filling but very fresh and mouth-watering flavours. I will be visiting again soon.

Ordinary .Unfortunately is the only word that describes our eating experience. Waiting staff were unfriendly ,service was super slow and the food was not value for money. I would like to say something else but no. Have eaten there before but the place has gone downhill.....

The prawn wonton noodle was very good along with the shanghai noodles. We also had the dumplings and spring rolls. Food is very good and attentive service.

Visited this establishment recently for the first time as the only Chinese restaurant in the Grey Street Precinct. Disappointing service and food.The unfriendly welcome at the door to the disinterested waiters and waitresses was really quite amazing in a marketplace where business owners are struggling with diminishing returns. The mixed vegetables were overdone (possibly even heated up) ,wilted and sad.... More

This restaurant is closer to the South Brisbane station and has plenty of room for diners. They offer yum cha so it must get busy. Food was served quickly and was really tasty. The only thing I was disappointed with was that we were given three menus to choose from but it wasn't mentioned that they had lunch time specials... More

There were 6 of us who just walked in of the street for lunch, they were busy but bent over backwards to fit us in. The food was served fast and tasted great. Well done Bamboo Basket I will be back.
