The Star Brisbane is in the midst of a $3.6 billion renovation set to be completed in April 2024, and the luxury destination has now confirmed part of its culinary line up.

The Queens’ Wharf development will rol lout 50 new venues in staged openings including Luke Nguyen’s Fat Noodle, cocktail bar Cherry, and Sports Bar.

It’s a return to roots moment for Fat Noodle, which first opened in the Treasury Brisbane more than 10 years ago.

The restaurant will feature communal seating areas along with more intimate dining settings and large banquet tables as well as an open kitchen.

“Brisbane is on the precipice of being the next foodie capital of Australia,” says Nguyen.

“There’s an undeniable buzz about town at the moment and it’s great to be a part of it.

“Fat Noodle at The Star Brisbane will take the dining experience to a whole new level. I can’t wait to welcome Brisbane locals and visitors into a brand-new venue and introduce fresh new flavours that further enhance Fat Noodle’s authentic South-East Asian flavours.”

Come April next year, diners will be able to order from a menu that includes 20-hour pho, laksa, beef rib pho, and pork bo la lot with betel leaf and lemongrass.

Signature Star bar Cherry will also join the hospitality offering in Brisbane, and will feature the same luxe fit out it has in Sydney and on the Gold Coast.

The 360-degree bar will focus on cocktails designed by The Star’s in-house mixologists.

The Star has also confirmed the development will include Food Quarter, an open-plan cafe-style venue that will serve lunch and late-night options.

“We are excited to officially introduce Cherry and Food Quarter to Brisbane after seeing their success at our sister locations on the Gold Coast and in Sydney,” says COO of The Star Brisbane Kelvin Dodt.
