About The Balfour Kitchen

Escape the bustle of the city at charming and serene The Balfour Kitchen on Balfour Street in New Farm. Set in a beautiful Queenslander, guests can dine on the verandah, enjoy relaxed gatherings under frangipanis in the courtyard, or cocktails on the rooftop bar, as the sun sets over the Storey Bridge. Serving edgy modern Vietnamese-inspired cuisine with a French twist, the menu delivers fresh, light and punchy flavours, along with vegan and vegetarian options. Start with salmon ceviche, black sesame and soy, katsuobushi and wonton crisps; before larger plates of sweet and sour pork tomahawk, panisse, capsicum and fennel, or tropical rock lobster, sour curry, tomato, kohlrabi and a side of jasmine rice. Finish indulgently with a dessert of Vietnamese mocha truffle and cacao nibs.
