Hailing from the southern states, Brisbane Phoenix is the fifth venue from Sydney’s much lauded Phoenix Group, who decided to expand their dumpling empire north after successfully conquering pretty much every corner of Sydney. Bringing with them their signature sleek interiors and top tier yum cha dishes, the new venue is definitely one for group hangs, and even boasts a private dining room that can seat up to 20 people around the biggest lazy Susan you’ve ever seen.
On the menu, you'll find only the best of the best dishes from the group's Sydney venues. Specialty yum chefs whose only job is to handmake the likes of crab xiao long bao, prawn and garlic chive dumplings and steamed BBQ pork buns on the daily work alongside the a la carte team. Plus, while the menus might be shorter, they’re still hella long—good luck trying to choose just a handful of options. One must try is the quail Maryland, and we’d also have to strongly recommend the deep fried lobster tails. Wear loose pants, yeah?
