I just wanted to send this email to compliment Chef Greg on his professional and friendly manner in regards to a recent visit on the Kookaburra Queen. My son went with Siena College last Thursday night. Greg took special care and consideration from the first contact of my phone call to discuss his dietary requirements. On the night, Greg hand delivered his food, ensured he was able to eat it without any concerns and phoned the following morning to make sure all was good with my son. This fantastic service and care has certainly been beyond other dining experiences we have had and I would like management to know our appreciation of Chef Greg making this a positive experience for me as a mother and my son as a customer.

"Finally, a high tea done right!! Invited yesterday on the Kookaburra River Queens new high tea. Two hours of bubbly, immaculate petite fours, ribbon sandwiches, mini rolls and savories. All the while cruising up and down the Brisbane river on an old fashioned paddle wheeler. The rest of Brisbane high teas has some serious competition in this arena now!!"
