Cheat-sheet for Brisbane Restaurants 布市餐馆一览
Let me give an intro which may replace #1 in line http://www.oursteps.com.au/bbs/viewthread.php?tid=124638 in the future. Below # refers to a post on that line.
For a connoisseur, I suggest Japanese (a few listed below), Muslim food (e.g. Ahmet's at Southbank) , or Korean restaurants.
For Asians, the list below gives you some selections.
I recommend Pinelands shopping plaza. It recently adds some nice Korean, Indian, restaurants in addition to the popular Endless Noodles (Chinese). I have tried the newly openned Indian restaurant . named Curry Hit. It offers good lunch.
Korean: Midam 味谈, Goong, TOBAKI BBQ in Gowan Village.
Vietnam Beef Noodle: Little TaiPei, or Pho Hien Vuong (兴记)
Chinese: 九碗半, 佳乡, 绿茶屋, 千里香私房菜
For pizza lovers, unfortunately La Porckette is too far away from Garden City or Griffith Uni.

- Chives 泰粤轩
Chinese-Thai. This one is intriguing.
First, you do not see many Chinese-Thai restaurants since the cooking styles are somewhat different.
Second, it is online: http://www.chivesrestaurant.com.au/
Its price is slightly high.
But considering its very nice contemporary setting, one may give it a try.

Better quality Italian food than Domino's or Pizza Hut. Check there web sites for locations.
Poutugese. Mainly chicken.
- Red Roost
Aussie Brand, compete against KFC and Nando's.
Probably David's 食字路口，317 Mains Road, Market Square, Sunnybank (小台北楼上） because it is cheaper.
Alternative is Sizzler, its web site http://www.sizzler.com.au/content/locations-qld.asp. Sizzler in Australia might be more expensive than its US counterpart. The best is perhaps cook it yourself since it is relatively easy, e.g. 牛排的作法
