    Tinderbox Kitchen is about showcasing and enjoying local produce and products.<br /> <br />Our Brisbane designed and built Beech wood fired oven has a significant role in our identity. This is evident in the woody smoky notes it lends to roasted local mushrooms, oven baked leeks and spice-rubbed lamb.<br /> <br />Authentic pizza features frequently on our table. The handformed dough is made from an organic stone-milled flour to create a crisp light pizza base that is as delicious as the ingredients it supports.

    Great food, Great service. Never had a bad experience at this great restaurant. Serving sizes could be a litter bigger for the price but the quality is there.

    We had a fantastic evening. Gnocchi in pork ragu with green olives was probably the best gnocchi I've ever eaten. Excellent service as well.
