Simple, affordable, delicious - Edit

This is a small, unassuming Asian veggie place in Fortitude Valley. We came here near closing time on a Monday night and got two meals: the vegan mutton curry and the non-vegan mushroom steak. I really like the vegan mutton, and my partner loved the mushroom steak. Both meals also came with a nice complement of sides: bok choy/greens, fruit, and a dessert pudding. The food was a really good value, too. This is a great place to stop by for a meal if you’re in the area.

Pros: Affordable, Tasty, Balanced meal

My favourite restaurant - Edit

This is by far my favourite restaurant in all of queensland. They are fully vegetarian but still have various vegan dishes. The place is very relaxing and everyone is super polite. The food is all yummy and so are their drinks (they have smoothies, teas, frappes).

They use various mock meat, have big portions, and serve them very quickly. The prices are reasonable and it is a great place to bring several friends to eat at.

Pros: A lot of mock meat, Friendly people, Excellent food

Cons: None

Super tasty vegan eats - Edit

This was definitely one of my favourite places to eat in Brisbane. The red pork dish I tried was good but the mock duck noodles were the real standout. If I lived in the area I'd go back to order them again and again. They also have delicious bubble tea.

Best vegan choice in Brisbane - Edit

I LOVE this place! There are so many great options for vegans (non vegetarian dishes are clearly marked) and the food is just great. So tasty, and there's something for anyone. Staff are super friendly. This is one of the best vegan places I've been in the world to be honest. A must visit.
Ps I would recommend the chicken sesame noodle soup. Delicious!

Pros: delicious , so cheap! , lovely staff

Cons: hard to find a park around there

great inexpensive vego food - Edit

I have been to Tea Master many times by myself and as part of a group ... Tea Master serves delicious vego food and drinks that are mostly vegetarian but there are plenty of vegan options ... its best to sit inside the restaurant as the tables outside are noisy due to the traffic on Wickham Street ... the staff at Tea Master are very welcoming and provide very good service

My favourite vegetarian place in Brisbane. The staff are wonderful and the food is amazing. Have tried many of the meals and have never been disappointed. The best would have to be the Sesame Oil Noodle Soup!

Great Soups - Good Tea - Edit

A small cosy restaurant serving Asian meals and teas. The use fresh vegetables and mock meat in several of their dishes (if that is your thing). I ordered the dumplings (delicious)plus a soup and a pot of tea, which was enough food to feed two people really. The soup was filling, tasty and nutritious and it was nice to enjoy a pot of Asian tea with the meal. My companion ordered a mock chicken dish that came with an abundance of Asian greens and this was yummy too. Definitely worth another few visits to try more of their meals and teas.

Pros: Good Soups, Inexpensive, Teas

Great Vegetarian place, small but charming, lovely - Edit

I love Tea Master! Perhaps my second favourite veggie place in Brisbane, even as a vegan. Under Cathedral Place next to a Laundromat, this place has great good, great staff and I have never had a bad meal here. The potato balls are a must and the many mains are really well-priced and tasty. They can make most teas / drinks vegan for you - just ask. I always tip this place because I feel they have not charged me enough for the quality of food provided. A must.

Pros: Wonderful food, Good location, Can make vegan if asked

Cons: Not vegan - wish all was vegan

Possibly my favourite restaurant in Brisbane - Edit

I love this place. The atmosphere is simple and I feel comfortable there. I like that most of the dishes are more subtle in their flavours than the dishes I've had at many cheap asian restaurants. It doesn't make you feel sick as a result of heavy sauces and too much oil. The tea/drink selection is really good.

If you're on a low-FODMAP diet and want to eat some vegetarian/vegan food, this place is perfect. My mum, who is on this diet because of digestive problems, could've actually eaten most things here. Most of the dishes just use bok choy and carrot as the main vegetables. She would be fine with eating the tofu and mock meats, and they don't use onion in anything.

Pros: Nice atmosphere , Simple, tasty food, Good value

Nice food, nice tea - Edit

Really good food, lots of choices! Everything I've had was tasty and filling.

Unlike a similar restaurant nearby, they are open for dinner on Friday night, which is a big bonus.

The tea is fantastic.

Strongly recommend this place. Good if you're meeting strict buddhists (no onion/garlic).

Pros: Amazing tea, made well, Good range of food, Open for dinner on Friday

Cons: none really

One of Brisbane's best! - Edit

I have been an infrequent regular of Tea Master for a number of years now, and I can say with confidence they are very very good. The food, atmosphere, service, and the whole style or approach the restaurant takes is simple, unique, individual and very relaxed.

Food portions are slightly small, but inexpensive so order many...perhaps a bit too much use of corn flour, but the food is clean, fresh and tasty. They are strictly Asian Taoist vegetarian (no onion, garlic, chives, shallots, leeks) which is hard to find in any city, so the taste for most westerners may be bland, however they make up for it with good selection of sources.

Tea Master is one of the few restaurants I have been to anywhere, where they know how to serve proper Green Tea. They use high quality Green leaf teas from Taiwan, they provide a hot flask of water for you to top up your own teapot at your leisure, and serve the tea in traditional and practical little tea set. I hate going to a restaurant and getting served green tea in a tea bag that is floating with the string and label in water. Tea Master honours the customer by doing it properly.

The waitresses are lovely, very friendly, relaxed and low key...they are all clean living vegetarians themselves and take quality food service seriously.

The only downside to this restaurant is their opening hours are a bit restricted. 6pm weekdays (9pm Fri) is a bit hard to manage for a night out.

I would recommend Tea Master to anyone

Tea Master - lots of choices - Edit

We often go here for lunch. The service is good, food great with a varied menu and the prices are very reasonable. They have lots of small plates so we have like a vegetarian tapas and the ginger tea is delightful.
Updated from previous review on Friday January 27, 2012
Had another aweseome lunch there today, very tasty soups and radish cakes.

Pros: Great value, Lots of choices, Tasty food

Cons: Not many tables

mmmm - Edit

Yes I miss this place too. A nice little cafe, somewhere to pop in to get out of the hot weather and relax and be quiet. The Edame Soy beans a delicious mmm. Good little place for a single person to have some delicious food. I love the little mango puddings.

Pros: so good

Cons: want more, just like this, every where

Tea Master Rocks! - Edit

My partner and I just keep coming back here. There is such a lot to chose from and it's hard not to keep ordering the same yummy things you've tried before - 'duck' and rice set or sweet and sour 'pork' or hainan 'chicken' are our favourites.
It's open later on Fri nights but otherwise a lunch or early dinner place.
We're sure it is by far the best vegetarian Chinese food in town, and cheap too. Both full up spending less than $20 between us.

Pros: excellent food, good choice, good value

Cons: opening hours

great food, great value - Edit

Tea Master is located under the 'Cathedral Place' apartment complex (that takes up the entire block bounded by Wickham, Anne, Gotha & Gipps streets), on Wickham Street between Gotha & Gipps.

Tea Master has the best bean entree in town ("Young soybean with pepper & salt" [and star anise] for $3.90), and great dumplings. I also like the "chili bean paste rice" pot for mains ($6.90), and the [iced, savoury-sweet] "plum green tea" is a favorite of mine too.

This place is great value: good on them for maintaining a high quality standard of delicious, nutritious food while keeping their prices down.
