Peony Asian Fusion, 96 Albert Street, Brisbane QLD 4000, Ph: 0732115353Date of Review: 16 August 2012
In desperate need to escape the stress of the office, I decided to go to Peony to try out their special gluten-free menu. As it was a beautiful day, we opted to sit outside in the modern, minimalist setting. The waitresses were very attentive and there is little chance of anyone getting your order wrong, thanks to the checklist order form you're given. Every menu item is listed on it, so all you need to do is simply state the quantity of servings next to your choices.
Although the gluten-free menu is quite limited, considering how many choices are on the main menu, I was very happy with my choice. The chicken lemongrass with rice and salad, accompanied by a glass of umeshu (plum wine) and soda was simply delicious! The quantity was large and the food very filling.
The staff were very professional and helpful when I requested the gluten-free menu. Service was fast.
Although the lunch items all range in price - the most expensive on the gluten-free menu was $18. The menu is great because it offers sushi, light meals, main meals and rice/noodle options. The quantities were huge making it good value for money.
The restaurant was very clean.
TOTAL SCORE: 43/50 or 86%
