We visit here at least once a week for lunch

The pad kee mao rocks! The lunch hot box is unbelievable value and doesn't taste mass produced. Don't expect a posh looking restaurant but it is clean and tidy. Cash only. The staff are friendly, if you want a table at lunch time you will need to book.

Nice door but really slow service :/ and they forgot one of our meals. The issue was rectified but we were already waiting a long time before the problem arose...

I first discovered this tiny restaurant/take away when i first moved to Canberra may moons ago. Keyword for this food place's longevity is consistency. Consistency in flavour, service and price. Menu favourites: 1) Crispy fish with 5 spice sauce 2) beef with basil and chilli 3) Phad Thai with no sugar (have to specify no sugar at all) 4) tom... More

I come here at least once a week for the great pre-cooked food (the best $8.50 lunch in Belconnen), and sometimes for a la carte noodles. The food is always delicious and (despite how busy it is) the service is always friendly. It's mainly a government worker lunch place, but sometimes when I walk past in the evening it seems... More

This little cafe provides pre-cooked lunch meals or there is a small range of other options on an A la Carte menu. The food is always fresh and delicious and exceptionally well priced. A great place to get your daily dose of Thai :)

This place is only a little cafe but the food is amazing. They have a bain marie with a range of ready to eat options as well as an al a carte menu. The pad thai is the best I have ever had and they do phone orders which is very convenient.

Firstly, I am blown away by how little reviews are made of this place. This is a take-away hotspot and also a hotspot for government workers in the Belconnen district. if you are living as far away as Tuggernong, I would recommend you fill your tank and drive 25km for the best Pad-Thai in Canberra. The owner is very warm... More

This is a real hidden gem in an office block in Belconnen - a very hole in the wall of an office block kind of place. You come here for the food as the setting is really basic. The service is friendly and personal - it's a family run affair where the door is closed promptly at closing time, which... More

Great little hole in the wall-esk eatery. I absolutely love the food here and find it hard to resist their chicken Pad Thai - mmmm
