Tipping, Brisbane: 3 reviews and 1 photos
This is a topic which has attracted a lot of discussion between myself and local friends over the years. Tipping is definitely not a cultural must here as it is in many other countries of the world. In Asia, I regard it as a polite acknowledgement of excellent service, but also a knowledge of limited pay to the staff member. In Australia, our restaurant staff are paid quite well. However, a tip of rule-of-thumb 10% of the bill is regarded as a polite indication of appreciation of a high quality service from your waitperson.
My daughter works in an inner city pub-restaurant, and makes a lot of money from tips. She works in a fair establishment, where case tips and allowed to be retained, and any credit card tips are honestly added to wages at the end of the pay period. However, just a note to those of you are might consider tipping in Brisbane, this may not be the norm, so, if it matters to you, ask.
