If you're visiting Canberra, you must come to Dickson, the local Asian center, for dinner. It seems like there are an infinite number of restaurants to choose from. And given the competition, I suspect most are very good. We wanted pho or something similar. so we chose this noodle restaurant because the reviews were quite laudatory. We were not disappointed!...

This place was recommended to us, however I don't think that it's something we will come back to. Their meal was bland and no flavours at all, it tasted more like fast food/food court meal.

I regularly eat at this delicious place. The laksas are consistently delicious and the value for money is outstanding. It is always busy and the service is extremely fast. I would highly recommend this place.

I dine here regularly, for the large combination laksa. Easily the best laksa in Canberra! The wild black sticky rice in coconut milk is a great dessert. Don't miss it!

We walked around Dickson looking for a nice evening out but were undecided on what to eat. We checked out various restaurants and eventually, we settled on Lao or Thai food. On Woolley Street we saw two eating places, side by side, offering the cuisine we wanted. The larger one had a solitary diner while the smaller one had a... More

Would fly back to Canberra for another Laksa! Came here every week when I lived there, nowhere else did I eat Laksa that came close to this one, including Malaysia!

I have been going to this restaurant in the last couple of years. There's always been this lady who works during lunch hours which I find very disturbing! I'd assume that she's the boss from her tone of speaking to the staff. I indeed admire the girls who work on the floor could still manage to put on a smily... More

Staff were rude; one of the staff sat out the front and chain smoked in between delivering meals. The food came out fast, but was drenched in oil, and tasted very fatty, sugary, and salty. Almost inedible. Definitely stay away.

Met a few lads here for dinner the other night and we all loved it. The laksa is absolutely fantastic and the other dishes chosen for our feed were also spot on. Need to book - place was chockers on a Tuesday night. Service was very efficient. Such good value. Highly recommend you make the effort.
