Brisbane's Best Views | Jade Buddha | Gourmand & Gourmet

Eat, drink, dance, or relax with riverside views at Jade Buddha

If you haven’t already heard, Jade Buddha is the place to be all day, every day.

There’s something magical about spending time by our iconic Brisbane River, especially when you’re soaking in glistening views from multi-tier marvel, Jade Buddha.

Whether you’ve casually dropped by for lunch, or the upstairs Shadow Lounge dance floor is calling your name (those DJs know how to get it done), Jade Buddha is the place to be from lunch through to liquid dinner.

Your first escape from the office for the day calls for $10 weekday lunch specials, when that spare tenner will get your hands on juicy beef burgers, chicken burgers or tempura fish and chips.

Once you’re well-fed, you’ll have plenty of energy to head back after clock-off for knock-off drinks (with quality espresso martinis giving you even more energy to go all night).

The cocktail list is almost as refreshing as the fact that there’s no cover charge, with proper affordable Aperol spritzes, Pimm’s cups, cosmos and espresso martinis as just a taste of what to expect.

If you’re starting to think that this might be the right place for your next event, A) you’re right, and B) their packages are practically perfect. With two level’s worth of possibilities and mouth-watering eats including teppanyaki-style wagyu and karaage chicken bites, it’ll be one event worth writing home about.

Remember, it’s important to work hard, but even more so to play harder at Jade Buddha.


Keeping the G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally need to give out some sponsored love. Rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think are really nifty, as the sponsor for this post is!
