Located on Oxford Street in the heart of Bulimba, the small, ambient eatery features cosy bench seating along one wall, with dainty table lamps that emit a warm glow, while a hint of captivating drama is added by pink neon. The restaurant also boasts a sushi bar where you can enjoy fresh sushi and sashimi, and freshly shucked oysters served with lemon and yuzu mignonette.

Tapas bar diners can start with Mista Boo's signature one-bite dishes - crispy nori chip canapes topped with salmon tartare, spicy prawn or house-smoked fish, and baby gem lettuce cups filled with spicy tuna, pulled pork belly, or a trio of mushrooms (shitake, shimeji and oyster).
