Morgans is an institution in the culinary offerings of Brisbane's north side having the highest reputation for sea food at both the retail outlet (fresh and takeaway cooked) and the nearby restaurant.
We were lucky enough to make a booking only one day in advance for the Teppanyaki Room. Normally at least a week's notice is required to get in. There are two Teppanyaki seating areas. One for 22 people: the other for 11. Our party of 3 found itself attached to a group of 8 who had booked 2 weeks in advance. We were able to avail ourselves of the offered banquet menu normally avilable for groups of 7 or more by selecting the same choice as our fellow diners.
I cannot adequately describe the TEPPENYAKI experience. The evening is a mixture of theatre, juggling, cooking & camaraderie with patrons expected to take part in the process. The cooks behind the giant B-B-Q plates are consumate entertainers with a great collection of one liners, an insight into reading the customers and a natural ability to get nearly everyone involved in exploits like catching raw eggs which have been flicked at them. The catching is done with various sized cups from large to the standard egg cup. Waiters are kept busy cleaning up broken eggs from the floor. (Bibs supplied)
Food cooked on the B-B-Q plate includes not only a vast range of seafood (fish, lobster, oysters,prawns, scallops,Moreton Bay bugs etc) but chicken, steak, lamb & a variety of accompaniments like rice, noodles and vegetables.
Entrees $8-20; Mains $25 to over $40.00; Banquets $30 to $85 (for the one including lobster tail).
Open: Wed - Sunday Lunch & Dinner, bookings recommended PH:32035744
Lunchtime special on Thursday 5 courses for $20
Favorite Dish: We elected to try the $46.40 per person group menu which consisted of spring roll entree; green salad; Japanese style garlic prawns; teriyaki chicken; barramundi in lemon butter; eye fillet in garlic butter red wine& soy sauce; yasai itami vegetables on the grill; teppan fried rice & a sorbet to finish.
The seafood was very good. The fillet steak A 1. My vegetarian daughter said, "If meat is that good, put me down for more!"
We drank wines by the glass ($6.50 - 10.00). Wine list of reasonable Australian wines by the bottle.
Service was very good.
All in all a very entertaining night with exceptional food.
Both the Teppanyaki Room and the Seafood Restaurant provide a wonderful way to celebrate an important occasion with a big group. For example, on Mother's Day 2013 (early May), we celebrated on the deck overlooking the harbour having opted for the $60 per head Seafood Buffet at the Restaurant. Hard to beat as much as-you-can-eat : Lobster, Moreton Bay Bug, Prawns and others seafood hot & cold.
