Korean Butterfly

/ Philosophy


The butterfly represents rebirth, metamorphosis, creativity, endless potential, vibrant joy, change, ascension, and an ability to experience the wonder of life. The cycle of the butterfly holds our spiritual symbolism and insight for us. Birthed from an cocoon the butterfly lives it’s early life as a caterpillar. It then retreats within the pupa or chrysalis where it undergoes a transformation, and finally when it leaves the chrysalis it is reborn as a beautifully winged butterfly. We are determined to transform traditional Korean cuisine into a unique dining experience


Butterfly invites you to an intimate epicurean encounter steeped in the tradition of fine Korean cuisine. Indulge in a multi-course omakase menu that celebrates seasonal ingredients at the peak of their flavours, as Butterfly  team curate every dish to exquisite perfection right before your eyes. At the heart of dining at Butterfly is the spirit of Jeong-sung, or wholehearted Korean hospitality, graciously delivered in the elegant ambience of this exclusive omakase-style Korean restaurant cocooned in the midst of Brisbane’s Central Business District.


Butterfly started with a vision to reinvent how we approach modern Korean cuisine. You’ll quickly see how this dining experience differs from what you typically expect: a welcoming, open kitchen, a design-forward atmosphere, and menu, carefully crafted dishes you won’t find elsewhere, and that’s just the start. You can face the chef and witness how the unique cuisine is being prepared, see how the team of artists works, listen to interesting stories about the culture and traditions of Korean cuisine, or simply enjoy high-class cuisine and atmosphere.
