Full alphabetical list of Brisbane CBD restaurants below this overview:

Budget city restaurants are clustered around the Little Asia precinct, incorporating the Elizabeth Arcade with hole in the wall Japanese Kadoya and Korean Madtongsan perpetually packed with Asian students. Other great budget finds, the majority tucked away up or downstairs from street level with little signage are Mary St's glamorous Japanese hotpot diner Shabuhouse, or Korean Madtongsan II and vegetarian stalwart Govinda's both upstairs on Elizabeth St. On Edward St in the basement of Metro Arts is NY style Italian eatery and bar Verve.

Down Burnett Lane tiny German eatery German Hut Imbuss peddles bratwurst and beer and, on Friday nights, pork hock and upstairs in the Wintergarden Dumpling Republic peddles yum cha.

Ben's Alibi adds a touch of Morocco to the mono law precinct, dishing up tagines and pizza for lunch on weekdays.

At the other end of the scale the city's upmarket dining area is to be found at the Botanic gardens area of Edward St and along the Riverside complex.

Meanwhile the city's best lunches for under $10 are found at Spring, LR Sushi or Wednesday's City Farmers Market in Raddacliff Square.

Mid-Range eateries are limited to the atmospheric Burnett Lane hideaway The Survey Co, veteran Japanese inhabitant of Koala House, Oshin, Edward Street's ambient and hospitable Mr Edwards Ale House and Jamie's Italian Kitchen along with sky garden style Public on George St and slick little laneway bar eateries Coppa Spuntino and Red Hook.

High-Range restaurants are clustered around the Botanic Gardens and Riverside precinct, led by culinary jewel and degustation restaurant, the divine three hatted Esquire. Hot on its heels come Matt Moran's Aria on the riverfront and Urbane and Restaurant II in the City Botanic Gardens vicinity. Other gems include The Euro off Spencer Lane and Malt Dining upstairs in Brisbane's first marketplace, Spanish-infused Moda by the Gardens and Phillip Johnson stalwart E'cco Bistro in a no-man's land bordering the Valley.
