Whether you’re powering through a working lunch or taking your time with a long, lazy lunch, do it water-side at King Street Wharf.

With 12 delicious restaurants to choose from, choosing one for lunch may be daunting so we’ve created a short and snappy list based on price, flavours and even the day of the week.

Bungalow 8 has just launched a new Cali inspired lunch menu with tacos, fajitas, peri-peri chicken burger and buddha bowls. Tacos are $7.50 each and the Buddha Bowls are on special Monday – Thursday for $15 a pop.

At Beer Deluxe, Tuesday is the day to remember as it’s B’n’B day – Burger & Beer for $15 bucks till 3 pm. Other noteworthy days include Schnitzel Wednesday and Pizza Thursday.

Power Lunch

Need to make a great first impression? Are you looking for a venue suitable for a client lunch? Look no further! Whether you are after a juicy steak, a spicy curry or exotic Noni cuisine, the following three restaurants will knock your socks off.

A waterfront steakhouse with an alfresco balcony and a killer wine list is bound to impress at Steersons Steakhouse. With a two-course express lunch menu that includes a glass of wine, they promise to get you to your next meet in 45 minutes.

Manjits Wharf is not your regular Indian restaurant. Recently awarded a Chef’s Hat, the extensive menu caters to vegetarians and pescatarians. Try the Gujral family’s famous Butter Chicken on their $29.90 Express Lunch Menu and don’t forget to mop up all the flavours with their giant naan.

With its slick, dark interior and the sparkling foreshore, dining at The Malaya truly transports you to another world. The family business has been trading for 40 years and the signature dishes of Chilli Crab, Beef Rendang and Nasi Goreng are still in high demand. Lunches are long and leisurely here, so book ahead.

Taste of the Mediterranean

Get dazzled by the sparkling blue hues of the sea, ferries traversing and plates loaded with the freshest, seasonal ingredients. Close your eyes and pretend you’re in Italy, Greece or a tropical island by visiting Casa Ristorante Italiano, George’s Mediterranean and Nick’s Bar & Grill.

Long lunches are encouraged at Casa Ristorante Italiano with lunch extended to 5 pm. Choose from pizza, pasta, salads or mains such as a Chicken Parmigiana for under $20. Every meal includes a glass of wine or a soft drink.

Graze in the olive grove at George’s Mediterranean as the boats pass you by. The Mezze plates here will set you back $24.90, each plate bursting with the flavours of Greece. Will it be a halloumi salad with roast pumpkin or a souvlaki plate today?

Fans of seafood know that Nick’s Bar & Grill is synonymous for fresh fish. With 30 years in the seafood game, the signature platters, lobster mornay and surf and turf are popularly snapped on Instagram to this very day. The only decision you need to make when dining at Nick’s is whether to share!
