    This restaurant is one of Brisbane's hidden gems. We had a party of 8 for breakfast - the food was top notch, including the coffee and fresh juices. The occasion was made all the better by our 2 charming young waiters - we will definitely be back

    Excellent food and great ambience, service was good too! The starters especially the lamb sausage and the chicken wings were yummy. The Kobe beef melts in the mouth

    Enjoy eating on the balcony. Nicer seats out there would be nice

    Friendly service, beautiful dining areas both indoor and outdoors. Would love to see a bit more on the breakfast menu both food and drinks-wise

    Kennigo Social House

    Hi, Thank you for your review! I just wanted to let you know that our breakfast menu's do change seasonally and are kept small to accommodate for the kitchen and the local, fresh ingredients that we use! We also have a section on the menu that allows you to add items so you can tailor your breakfast preferences to have what you like! Thanks again for your review, we hope to see you again soon

    Not what we expected - very casual clientele. More a bistro than fine dining. I chose the wagyu beef which was delicious but for $75 I expected more than the very small portion of beef I was served. Don't choose it if you're hungry. Menu selection otherwise wasn't expansive or particularly exciting. Wine prices were very reasonable and service was friendly and efficient.

    Kennigo Social House

    Hi, Thank you so much for your review. I am so delighted that you enjoyed the service during the night and found our wine prices reasonable. We pride ourselves on using the best local ingredients and are so proud to be able to serve Master Kobe to our guests. It's incredibly exclusive as we are currently the only restaurant in Australia where you will find it! Due to the high marble score we serve it as a 200gm portion to allow our diners to enjoy it without being overwhelmed by the high fat content. We usually recommend enjoying an entree or two beforehand if you're after a bigger meal. Thank you again for dining with us, we hope to see you again next time you're in Brisbane.

    Atmosphere a little odd with cafe tables and clinical white lighting in parts of the room. Good great but don't expect a medium rare steak. Could do more on bread presentation

    Kennigo Social House

    Thank you for taking the time to review our little restaurant, your feedback is so important to us and I can assure you that we are looking at ways to soften the atmosphere in the restaurant without taking away from the beautiful, heritage-listed house. Please let me know when you book again so I can ensure you that your experience is one that we hope all of our customers can have.

    The cocktail list was not extensive at only three options. We had all the share plate options between 7. Food was good, but nothing that particularly stood out.

    Kennigo Social House

    Thank you for taking the time to review our little restaurant. I do apologise as my staff should have mentioned that we can also make a variety of basic cocktails that aren't on our list. As the bar is so small we limit the amount that's on the menu to ensure that we always have the ingredients in stock. We hope to see you again when we launch our new Winter Menu

    Didn’t realise until afterwards that where I was staying at The Richmont, Mantra next door had a special dining deal available . Ah well.... But did return in the morning for a fabulous brunch with my grandson who thought it was great food as well. Thanks Chefs.

    Kennigo Social House

    Hi K-A Gifford, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Hopefully your next stay at Mantra Richmont you can enjoy our dinner selection as well. Thanks again we look forward to having you back!

About the restaurant

Queenslander splendour

There are few things as iconic as old ‘Queenslander’ architecture, capturing a bygone era of Australian History with it’s distinct design. Perhaps you’re not the nostalgic type though and prefer to look to the future, in which case a celebration of Brisbane’s modern, eclectic dining scene might fit the bill. Kennigo Social House is a restaurant boldly fusing the new and the old while celebrating timeless Queensland culture. Nestled in a beautifully restored Queenslander and serving some amazing modern Australian cuisine, this is a restaurant not to miss!

Just as the restaurant’s atmosphere has something for everyone, so too does its menu. From share plates and starters to fast food and large plate, these guys make diversity look easy! Start your culinary trip of Brisbane culture with some delicious duck, pork and shiitake dumplings with ponzu sauce, you’re bound to find something you’ll love.
