About The Balfour Kitchen

Guests can be forgiven for thinking they are miles away from the hustle and bustle of Brisbane city, inside The Balfour Kitchen at New Farm. Nestled in a beautiful Queenslander, this bistro-style venue offers an exciting new Vietnamese-inspired menu, with award-winning Executive Chef Dan Jarrett at the helm of the revitalised offering. Soak up Brisbane’s balmy evenings by enjoying a cocktail or two in an intimate frangipani tree-shaded courtyard, before sitting down for a delicious feast on the wrap-around verandah. Whet your appetite with a starter like Vietnamese beef tartare, fermented tofu and preserved Chinese olive, yolk and puffed rice paper; while the French menu twist can been seen in dishes such as coffee brulee, lotus, tea meringue, fried cacao truffle and chilli chocolate.

Top notch!
Food expertly prepared coupled with friendly unobtrusive service in a unique environment! I really do love the Balfour, particularly the rooftop bar!
