This place is always popular with the young crowd, affordable food and drinks and modern music. The food is tasty and you get a lot for your money. It’s great to experience the Asian food without the fancy restaurant which can be off putting for...More

We found the service very good, the food was good but not exceptional but value for money very satisfactory. The decor is a little unusual and very casual so if you like this semi open air type of dining give Junk a go.

I was there with my partner based on the locals recommendation. We had their famous JFC, the avocado tofu thingy and the chicken ribs. Coming from Asia, I can agree that this place served a very good asian street food :-)

Stopped in here and get the feel you could be in SE Asia. Great vibe, beer towers and small but extremely well done menu. The pork is so well cooked and service quick. Would recommend and will return.

Description
Junk serves a remix of Thai, Japanese, Cantonese and Korean cuisines with a freestyle-Australian twist. We make healthy and fuss-free food with locally-sourced ingredients, that's best enjoyed as a shared-eating experience. Junk was created by award-winning chef Tony Kelly and business partner Scott Hoskins, and is helmed by rising culinary star Mitch Smith as executive chef. Originating in the Sunshine Coast, Junk has since expanded into the Toowoomba, Brisbane and Melbourne Market.
