West End (together with Fortitude Valley) is Brisbane's last bastion of what might be tactfully termed bohemian/left bank/grunge personified/colorful. It's all of these things and more, though reasonably safe street-wise as the area - especially the main street - is usually very well patronized and...More

Full of homeless people, drunken aboriginals, cockroaches, rats, mice, flying rats (pigeons) and hippies. Dirty place with dilapidated shop fronts. Needs to be completely renovated.

The food was very good. But the service was unfriendly, the waitresses looked stone faced, no expression, no smile! I would not go back.

I always hear about West End when people talk about trendy Brisbane suburbs. All excited, I made my way down Boundary Street and barely found anywhere worth opening the wallet. It cannot be compared to the trendy areas in Sydney and Melbourne. Roti Place was...More

I re-visited West End with my family recently and really enjoyed the experience. There is such a range of restaurants, bars, people who visit and choices of coffee lounges. On Friday night, there are the West End market food stalls where you can get cheap...More

We stayed in the Westend for three days with our young children. The location was great - about 20 mins walk from the South Bank’s attractions. There were plenty of places to eat from quirky cafes, and numerous international cuisines.

Was for a conference in Brisbane and after it finished we went to dinner at a lovely Greek restaurant, Lefkas. It was almost as good as the food I had in Greece. Try the octopus.
