The Landmark Restaurant, Sunnybank

Address: Sunnybank Plaza Shopping Centre, 101 Mains Road and McCullough Street, Sunnybank QLD 4109.

Phone number: 07 3344 3288

Open: Monday to Sunday 10:30AM - 2:30PM, 5:30PM - 10:00PM


The Landmark Restaurant is by far the tastiest yum cha I have tried in this city. The Landmark has been featured in good food reviews for Brisbane over the years and it is the star of Food Discovery Tour by a leading Chinese chef Tony Ching.

"In this tour, people can choose either a yum chat at The Landmark or a series of dinner to a number of restaurants," says tour operator Chef Tony Ching.

"Yum cha at The Landmark is a popular destination in the south of Brisbane and it has been since the coming of Chinese restaurants in the area in the late eighties," chef Ching commented.

On the website of Sunnybank Plaza, experiencesunnybank.com.au, The Landmark is the featured restaurant for the south. They boast their chef's recommendations which include Peking Duck, seafood dumpling, especially prawn dumplings as well as barbecue pork steamed buns.

The steamed and fried dumplings are comparatively bigger and firmer than other restaurants and the tastes are simply alluring that you would not hesitate to come back for next time. Self-service is available where you do not have to wait for the trolly to come near you to start or continue eating. You can grab your bill card and take it to the yum cha station where you can choose and collect your food anytime.

The best part of this restaurant is that it is easily accessed via public transport from the city of Brisbane. So it is great for drinking and dining at the same time. From the bus depot Myers Centre in Brisbane, catch bus number 130 to Parkinson or 140 to Browns Plains and get off at Sunnybank, then head towards The Landmark restaurant for only 5 minutes from the bus stop.

Guang Zhou Lou Chinese Restaurant

Address: Big Gun Shopping Centre, Shop 7, 2922 Logan Road, Underwood, QLD 4119.

Phone: 07 3161 8319

Opening times: Weekdays, 11:00AM-3:00PM and 5:00PM-2:00AM, Weekends: 10:00AM-3:00PM and 5:00PM-3:00AM, Public Holidays 10:00AM-3:00PM

The best part about Guang Zhou Lou Chinese Restaurant is the quality of the prawn dumplings: big, fresh prawns inside a see-through sheet of dumplings. The taste is to die for. Then, the rest of the steamed and fried dumplings are just beautiful. You do not really need to fill yourself up with lots of dumplings because the first ones you try will really satisfy you to the rest of your dining. Seafood, pork and chicken choice abound and you are welcomed to have a feast of this tasty restaurant

Because it is located in an outer city suburb of Underwood, more than 15 kilometers out of Brisbane CBD, the restaurant can afford to lower their prices. Slightly.

And in case you have not noticed, this establishment is open until dawn: 3AM on weekends. How amazing! Who says yum cha is only for brunch?

To access this restaurant easily, you need to drive to the south of Brisbane via M1 Highway towards the Gold Coast. Take exit 20 from Brisbane and connect through to Logan Road. It is located in a shopping centre called Big Gun because there is a, literally, big gun that hangs on the top of the shopping centre. Unfortunately, this restaurant is not easy to get to using public transport, so you might need to assign a driver if you decide to drink.

King of Kings Seafood Restaurant

Address: 173-175 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane CBD, QLD

Phone: 07 3852 1889

Opening time: 12:00PM - 10:00PM daily

There's no doubt, the King of Kings Seafood Resturant is the most accessible yum cha place for residents and visitors of Brisbane. Simply catch the train or buses towards the Valley (short for Fortitude Valley) and before you know it, you are facing the steps that lead to the restaurant.

King of Kings is on the second floor of the building. Because of the sheer size of the sign downstairs, you can not miss it.

Car park can be a pain being in the city, so getting there by foot or by taxi are easy. It is in the CBD. However, there are paid carparks in Fortitude Valley if you prepared to spend a few dollars for it.

Foodwise, King of Kings is undeniably one of the best in this state. Steamed and fried yum cha menus are delicious. The dim sums and the dumplings are bigger, fresher and firmer. The restaurant has received good reviews from foodies in Brisbane. I highly recommend this establishment for all yum cha enthusiasts.
