Dining in Brisbane’s West End

There’s no need to have your passport stamped – there’s a whole world of cuisine to be found in Brisbane’s bustling West End. Here are some suggested stops for your culinary trip around the globe:


Named for a desert oasis, you’ll find a haven of delicious Turkish food at Caravanserai. With an open kitchen and an intimate atmosphere this is an immersive experience. There’s a wide variety of sharing platters, plus vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free diners are all catered for. On warmer nights, the balcony is the place to be. This is a popular place for locals and tourists alike, so we suggest booking in advance.


A not-for-profit social enterprise founded by local Eritrean women, a meal here gives you the opportunity to not only enjoy some delicious African food, but to support a very worthy cause while you’re at it – your patronage supports the education of refugee women. If you get the chance, try to be there for one of their ‘African Experience’ nights, which include a banquet and cultural performances.

Lefkas Taverna

Step inside the beautiful blue and white interior of this place with its mosaic-clad bar and you’ll think you’re in Greece. The menu of traditional Greek foods has something for everyone – their set menu selections for groups give you the opportunity to try lots of different things, from starters to desserts.

Quan Thanh

With lines out the door on the weekends, this is one place where you’ll want to make a booking. Authentic Vietnamese and Chinese menu favourites are delivered at budget-friendly prices, with lightning fast service.
