Treat yourself to a post-lockdown staycation at Donna Chang

Explore Donna Chang’s modern Chinese menu (and drinks list) before ascending to bed.

After months of considering takeaway a premium dining experience, now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a delicious staycation that all starts at Donna Chang, known for their hand-crafted dim sum, live seafood, and flame-grilled local produce.

After checking in to the Adina Apartment Hotel Brisbane, start your staycation strong by getting dolled up before heading down to the stunning Donna Chang dining room sporting pink banquettes, shimmering chandeliers, and gorgeous 1920s architecture. A cocktail is always the perfect place to begin, so choose from the list featuring simple classics and exotic flavours like oolong tea, junmai-grade saké, lychee liqueur, and wasabi oil!

When it comes time to dine, your best shot is sharing to maximise the dishes you can experience. Start with the prawn toast with yuzu mayonnaise and wild scampi caviar (a cult favourite around town) and delicate steamed prawn wontons with black vinegar.

It wouldn’t be a Chinese feast without duck, so the roasted duck with plum sauce is a must-order, while other favourites include the stir-fried black pepper beef fillet and steamed barramundi with aromatic relish.

You’re going all-out, so don’t skimp on dessert! The dark chocolate mousse with Hennessy XO caramel is the perfect silky-smooth way to end your lunch before you simply pop upstairs to relax (read: nap) after your fabulous feast.

To make your staycation even more delicious, Adina Brisbane is offering a fantastic deal for G&G readers, with one-night staycations from just $129, including a brekkie hamper and parking! To learn more and claim the deal, head here (but hurry, the offer is only available to book until the end of July for dates up until September), and book your lunch or dinner at Donna Chang here!


Keeping The G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally collaborate with local businesses we love, like this one.
