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.

Food was served quickly after we ordered. Portion size was generous. Laksa was tasty. Love their prawn toast.

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.

I was told this place makes the best laksa, i am not too sure after visited twice. The laksa was decent but i can easily count at least two Laksa houses in the Civic make better ones. Friend with me ordered stir fried rice noodle, it was very oily and salt. Maybe we just got unlucky that way. Will give... More

We still agree with our five star review of Dickson Asian Noodle House last year. However we've just noticed there are not any review photos for this restaurant, so we took some for Trip Advisor when we visited last week. As we wrote last time: Go. Eat. Enjoy. :)

Discovered the Noodle House years ago - along with most North Canberrans! Clientele is a mixture from all walks of life. It's not fancy, but service is excellent, laksa even better. Huge servings so unless you have a big appetite, stick to main course - although they do give you option of ordering half serve. Can't comment on anything other... More

I read about this little restaurant in The New York Times of all places, the newspaper did a feature on the city of Canberra & mentioned the Dickson Asian Noodle House as a little restaurant famous for their laksa. To people who eat laksa, it is some serious business & can cause hours of debate, fist fighting or even political... More

This restaurant has been a regular eatery of mine for almost 20 years now and it still produces in my opinion the best Laksa in Canberra. Other dishes are also worth a try but the Laksa is what keeps bringing me back. Service is quick and friendly with the only possible drawback being that the tables are quite close together... More

Refer to title :) as I have to write 100 words I'm going to fill this in with bumf. All that matters is that the food is good but the laksa is the best!!
