King Tea


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.
