Flavoursome laksa

Called in for a late lunch - only one couple finishing up but that wasn't an issue. We both ordered laksa - one mixed and one prawn. The broth was nicely balance and the bowl full of bean shoots, noodles, vegetable and meat/prawns. Service was quick and pleasant.

We dine at 'Judy's' (our family name for this fabulous restaurant) at least a couple of times every time we come to Canberra! Our latest trip we ordered the Shantung Lamb and OMG…Absolutely Yummo! This along with some other old favourites…but this blitzed them all! Def recommend this Fab lil restaurant!

My husband and I chanced upon this restaurant while hunting for a place in Manuka for dinner on a Saturday night. Located along a busy street overlooking Coles in the Manuka district, it's not exactly the most romantic of venues but we wanted to try a restaurant we hadn't visited before, so weren't too fussy. All the wait staff seemd... More

Walked in off the street for a table of 6 and they shuffled chairs and tables around to accommodate us near the front window. The food was excellent. We all selected individual entrees and mains. As it was a Sunday there was only 1 man to attend to us and the service was excellent. Highly recommend.

I booked a table at this restaurant and one of the members of the party is a Coeliac and is unable to consume gluten. I called the restaurant to confirm that an option for a meal could be arranged for my gluten free guest, however i was subjected to a lengthy and unpleasant conversation with a staff member who advised...

Very clean restaurant and excellent service. Lunch specials Mon-Fri are $9 and served with rice. Mine (combination satay) was piping hot and delicious. Drinks are reasonably priced. Good coffee, also reasonably priced. Seating inside and outside. Will definately eat here again.

The food is really good, the service is also good. I think the tables are too closed together, you feel you are having dinner with the stranger next to you. Next time I will do takeaway.

Ate here after wandering past it the night before. The front of the shop opens up, so the shop space doesn't feel tight and restrictive. The service was quick and friendly. The food was fresh, hot and very tasty. This restaurant in the Manuka shopping centre. It's an area with a lot of different styles of places to eat. Without... More

I like eating here, especially in the summer. The food is tasty, the restaurant has great views to the street, and you can linger and enjoy the night and each others company OR have a quick meal and get out of there. The last time we dined here we had white bait (which I love), duck san choi boy, hand... More

I have eaten at Ginseng twice now about 5 years apart and both times the quality of the food was exceptional. Service was also excellent and timely. I will eat here next time I am in Canberra.
