King Tea

Paddington

King Tea is a gorgeous rustic Chinese eatery and bar that takes its unusual name from the sign above the famous snack bar that once occupied its historic Paddington home.

One of Brisbane’s most ambient venues, King Tea features exposed rafters under the corrugated iron roof, stripped back handmade brick walls and the original brick fireplace at the rear.

On the concise food menu are a mix of modern and traditional Chinese dishes with a strong Sichuan flavour, starting with entrees like the 1000 layer pancake, deep fried tofu or prawn toast. There's also Dim Sum including soup dumpling, pot stickers (Shandong pork dumpling) and wonton.

In addition, there's rice and doodle dishes including Beef or Wonton Noodle Soup, King or Vegetarian Fried Rice or Secret Noodle.  And, for afters, the King Tea dessert is a real treat - Deep Fried Chinese Bao with five spice ice-cream, caramel and peanuts.
