FEBRUARY 2016 QANTAS BEST CHINESE RESTAURANTS IN AUSTRALIA
This is perhaps the coolest place in town to celebrate Chinese New Year. If you believe in the theory about the cooling effects of spicy food, there’s no better place to be on a steamy evening in Brisbane. The Bang Bang banquet comes with a good whack of the fiery dried chilli, Sichuan pepper and bold flavours for which Sichuan food is renowned. While the dishes closely follow tradition (the heat turned down slightly for delicate Western palates), the décor takes a contemporary approach. This tiny, tastefully tarted-up former Chinese takeaway has a boutique feel. The New Year’s celebrations spill onto the footpath of this normally quiet suburban street, with dragon dancing and street food.
