About Us

Established in 1972 by Gerhard and Monika Schoendorfer, Tanja's is one of Brisbane's best a la carte dining establishments.

Tanja's has won many awards over its 43 year history and this is due to the Schoendorfer family's commitment to quality fresh ingredients prepared daily for their customers by only the best chefs. Monika and Gerhard are joined in this endeavour by their daughter Dr. Niikee Schoendorfer, who adds her extensive knowledge in health and nutrition to the Tanja's story allowing its customers to enjoy healthy fine dining.

Head chef Lalith Thoradeniya brings with him a wealth of knowledge and skills gained both internationally and interstate in a variety of senior chef positions at five star establishments. He lends his keen eye for detail and skills to our local dining scene with consistently outstanding results. He is accompanied by a team of well-experienced full-time chefs.

Fully licensed and presenting top quality ingredients prepared fresh by five-star hotel trained chefs, Tanja's is an icon of the Redlands. On the right is our beloved and well-known landmark - the clock tower. Please enjoy your dining experience here with the team at Tanja's Cafe and Restaurant.
