Given our love affair with Asian food, we rank Jimmy Wah’s high among the best restaurants in Burleigh. A contemporary take on traditional Vietnamese cuisine, you won’t find any upturned milk crates for stools or conical palm leaf and bamboo hats here. Open for both lunch and dinner, seven days, undo your top button in preparation for plates and plates of flavour-packed soft shell crab steamed buns, pho, bahn mi and tempura barramundi. And the wine list? Exceptional. If you’re wondering who the cheerful face is smiling back at you from the wall mural, it’s the restaurant’s namesake, the cheeky character Jimmy Wah from the classic flick Good Morning, Vietnam; and he’s pleased because, you’ve made a good choice.
Looking for the ultimate Sunday session? Available lunch and dinner on Sundays, Jimmy Wah's is now offering bottomless beers and bubbles served with a six-course banquet ($69 banquet with drinks, or $39 sans alcohol). Yes, bottomless!
