So, coming back to Brisbane this month, when my parents suggested we should give his new restaurant, Fat Noodle a try, I jumped at the chance. Dad was raving about the celebrity chef while mum was less than impressed where she continuously compared his food to those you could get from Inala or Darra (cheap viet eats in Brisbane!)
Located in the Treasury Casino, this of course spelled out fine dining. Walking into their restaurant, you will notice that all the staff are asian. Not one single white person working either at the bar or the floor... Interesting enough, most of the customers were caucasian ;)
As we were there during lunch time, the whole place was buzzing with people and there were no space for us at the proper dining area. We were then led to the end side, close to their bar, where we had to perch on the high chairs. I'm OK with it, but not so much for my dad as he was complaining about sore back and how the chair is not very comfortable.
|Loving the very oriental feel to the place... We sat just opposite the bar and I love the shadows cast by the bottles and lions displays just above the bar..|
Overall a pretty good experience. Dad's dish came out pretty quickly, but mine took slightly longer, which was surprising, as usually soup noodles are a lot quicker to prepare compared to stir fry...
I wouldn't mind returning here as I saw a few dishes that caught my eye (e.g. Grilled Pork Neck Skewer and Chicken and Abalone congee.. ) yum yum..
