I highly recommend West End Garden Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant. Cnr Of Melbourne & Edmondstone St, West End. www.westendgarden.com.au Always quick & easy take away/pick up but also has a great vibe in the dining area. You know the places where whilst their is a hum of activity in the place when it is full, it actually adds to the atmosphere and does not detract from your enjoyment like some places do. Remember this is Asian cuisine for the Aussie palette as with most or all of the local Chinese restaurants.
Trang or the other Vietnamese/Chinese places in the Hardgrave Rd strip are fairly authentic, busy, popular and just a bit away from the main areas, so mostly visited by locals. Nice vibe. Just remember this is Brisbane, not Beijing and go with expectations accordingly adjusted. Interested to hear about the other Chinese rum Chinese restaurants in West End or South Brisbane.
