Mei Wei Dumplings

8 Weeks
Treasury Brisbane

Construction Manager: JP Kennedy
Site Manager: Ivan Hila
Contracts Administrator: Will Pearce


Having delivered over 100 projects at Treasury Brisbane Quadric has again delivered on the expanded food and beverage offerings — with potstickers, dim sum, barbecued meats and other Cantonese-style food. The Brisbane CBD spot has welcomed Mei Wei Dumplings, with the new hawker-style eatery setting up shop on the basement level.  Head underground every day of the week to eat your way through plenty of Mei Wei’s titular dish — at the chain’s second location, with its first restaurant already a favourite at The Star Gold Coast. Plus, in good news for Brisbanites hankering for some dumplings long after dinner time, the eatery is open until 11pm weekends and 1am on Fridays and Saturdays.

Whether you like your dumplings fried or steamed — and whether you’re dropping by for lunch, an after-work meal of a late-night bite, you’ll find a variety of flavours on offer. Prawn dumplings, vegetable dumplings and three varieties of potstickers (beef, chicken and pork) are all on the menu, as are other dim sum staples such as spring rolls, barbecue pork buns and xiao long bao.

Upon entry to the subterranean eatery, guests will be greeted by an interior aesthetic that harmonises far-eastern influences and period features of the Treasury Brisbane building itself. Design crew BSPN Architecture has favoured simplicity and sustainability for Mei Wei’s textural palette and layout – the concrete foundations have been accentuated with brass and recycled woods across the restaurant’s communal dining tables, cream-coloured booths, bar and 14-seat private dining room, while eye-catching artwork from Gold Coast-based artist Bastian Allfrey adds a pop of colour to the mix

If you’re already thinking about gathering the gang for dumplings next time you’re in the vicinity of the casino, Mei Wei also features a 14-person private dining room. And, patrons can enter via a separate George Street entrance, rather than through the Treasury.
