Another reliable restaurant for dining in or take away.

Kevin's Place is another one of my favourite Chinese restaurants for either dining in or take away. It is across the road from the Kippax Shopping Centre. We dined there just before they closed for the last two weeks in January. I ordered a few of my favourite dishes - Salt & Pepper Soft shell... read more

Kevins place is one of our regular visits. First time we went, we were impressed by the quality of the ingredients used and delicious dishes. So we have just kept going back for years. The hong kong sizzling steak is my favourite.

This restaurant really belongs in the sweet and sour pork and beef in black bean class. Other chinese restaurants in the area come closer to the real thing with Wok and Sizzle ( formerly Master So's) consistently producing fresh flavours with no batters or overpowering salt and sweet sauces. Chinese Inn, also nearby, is more Aussie style but acceptable. Kevin's... More

We ate at Kevin's Place on the Monday after Australia Day 2013 with extended family. It was OK. The venue itself is clean, and the decor is simple, and fairly contemporary. Some Chinese shanshui art on the walls, tiled floors. Tables well spaced. Restrooms were acceptably clean, but not pristine. It has a mid-range feel to it: not a greasy... More

We decided to give Kevin's Place a go after being a little disappointed with a recent visit to our regular Chinese restaurant. We were the first diners that evening but the restaurant soon filled up and the phone was ringing constantly with take-away orders. There was only one waitress serving who soon started to appear a little flustered. The food... More

Kevin's Place in Holt in Canberra cooks the best Chinese food I have ever tasted. The meals are freshly cooked, look fantastic, and taste so good. I'm very fussy when it comes to Asian food but Kevin's Place gets it right every time. We take the whole family for dinner, (10 people) and it is surprisingly cheap. Everyone leaves happy... More

Kevin's Place is located in a local shopping strip at Kippax in Canberra. It is a bright, clean and cheerful place to eat - if anything it looks a little too minimalist from the outside. The staff are friendly and unobtrusive. No corkage charge! But a limited soft drink menu.. The smooth walls, tiled floor and glass combine to make... More

When staying with friends in Canberra, we decided to give our hostess the night off from cooking and get takeaway. Not pizza, not curry, not Scottish food (MacDonald’s) nor fried chicken for us, but the eternal favourite .. ‘flied lice’ !!. Having eaten the food there before, our friends recommended ‘Kevins Place’ opposite Kippax Fair. We rang ahead and ordered... More
