Best Laksa in Canberra and Anywhere!

The Duck Laksa is the best I've had anywhere and is always full of flavour, duck, veggies and tofu. Nothing fancy, but so cheap and always as good as the last time.

One wet Saturday night we decided to venture out to Dickson. Always wanted to visit this establishment. We walked down what we call the China Town of Canberra. The most popular place was the noodle house. The patrons were a varied age group and nationalities. A good sign for a Asian restaurant, the staff were very helpful, the menu extensive... More

Cafeteria style seating, plain decor and can get busy. Service is good natured from the staff but the boss can be a bit grumpy. If you have a longing for an old Singapore Coffee shop laksa or noodles this is the place. Never stingy with the prawns in the soup just like I like it.

This place is where I had my first laksa over 20 years ago. Returned here for a combination laksa this week and it was everything I remember and have missed since leaving Canberra. Perfect. Have never ordered anything else from the menu, so this is a rather limited review, but if you haven't already, treat yourself!

Best Laksa anywhere... Nationally. Really.... Sooooo good..... And you can get them take away. Love this place and they have spoilt me with laksa so much that it is now hard to eat them anywhere else!!!

I've walked past this place many times. On this Occassion I decided to give it a try. I should have kept walking! It has had many favourable reviews, so I was really horrified when the char kueh teow arrived. Limp noodles, overlooked, shredded ingredients, much too much chilli, and floating in a sea of oil. Worst noodles I've had, ever,... More

Most dishes of good quality hence the queues but not outstanding... Except the combination laksa. Never been keen on Malaysian laksa, Thai marginally better but this place appears to have a Laotian touch to the food. I love this laksa, good temperature, consistency and everything...

The laksa is unbeatable and no doubt the best in town. Laksa is always a favourite when we dine here. Yesterday I tried the warm prawn salad which had excellent flavours and great if u are looking for a low carb meal. Service is always good and even if u visit them in 3 months they still remember yr requirements!
