Leading celebrity chef Luke Nguyen's latest venture, Fat Noodle, situated within Brisbane's iconic Treasury Casino
The project incorporated a complete strip back to a bare shell from which the vision of architects Luchetti Krelle could then come to fruition. The intent was to create a multifaceted venue, unique in design, unique in atmosphere and capable of satisfying memorable dining experience. The fully refurbished restaurant has a wealth of high class finishes procured worldwide which has resulted in a truly amazing outcome and eating experience unique to the Casino as well as the Brisbane restaurant scene.
The vibrant fit-out boasts several distinctive design features including an abstract fire dragon light sculpture which bursts through the entry corridor, diving into the kitchen, a custom designed chandelier comprised of works floating in a sea of thousands of suspended golden chopsticks and a bar whose façade takes the form of an ancient paper scroll and is set against a basket-weave parquetry floor. Large lion heads play guardian to the double height, backlit mirror wall – all sculpted by Rosemont’s & Co specifically for the application whilst in the kitchen, custom painted Mahjong tile detailing was hand finished by a contributing artist from the College of Fine Arts in Sydney.
The project team worked 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for 6 weeks with full-time site staff of six to deliver the restaurant for an early hand over date and in following true Asian superstition by opening on the auspicious date, 12.12.2012 and at 12:12!.
