Great for lunch

Had a quick lunch here with some work colleagues. They have a good selection of lunchtime specials. I decided on a Chicken Laksa and restrained myself with a half serve. Lucky for me that I did, the full size is very generous. My colleagues had the Laksa lunch special (2 spring rolls; full size... read more

We have eaten here several times. We visit Canberra 3 or 4 times a year and we are always pleased when friends suggest eating here. This was our first time just the two of us. I had chicken pad seuw and hubby had the large serve of combination laksa and we shared vegetable tempura because there is no better tempura... More

I first came here last year because of the recommendations on here and we decided to try again when I was back in in Canberra. It was as I remembered it; glorious! The laksa was full-flavoured and balanced, with a nice creamy coconut milk soup. It was perfect for a freezing evening (or any evening or lunch to be honest).... More

We had take-aways from here twice during our visit to Canberra. If we lived there, this would be a favourite restaurant. The flavours of all the dishes we ordered were amazing and beautifully spicy. And cheap. Excellent!

In my lunch break at work, this is one place that can turn your food around in under 30 minutes. There $11- lunch special has a variety which is fantastic. and you get FREE prawn crackers on arrival. Winner there.

The sign out the front states no. 1 Laksa, and it was. Great size serving and was a spot on feed. Will definitely be back.

This place serves up consistently good food and is reasonably priced and fairly quick. Others have commented on the Laksa which is very good, I would also recommend the noodles. I've tried most of the noodle dishes on the menu and found them to be excellent. The staff have all been friendly and helpful. The only potential downside is that... More

The service was good and the prices were on par with similar restaurants. We ordered way too much food as the dishes were bigger than we thought they'd be. The staff gladly gave us take-away containers for the left overs. The food was tasty and well cooked. The laksa was fantastic, one of better ones I've had.

This place is renowned for it's Laksas. Being a frequent visitor to Malaysia, I am quite the critic. These guys def have the best laksa in Canberra! Every time I visit I am tempted by something new from their menu, but I just can't go past the laksa. Ps, I always ask for extra spicy & they bring me a... More
