Located right in the heart of the city. This place is popular as we needed to book for a Tuesday night dinner. Flavoursome Asian dishes that are reasonably priced, well worth a visit.

I have been dining at Sammys for 20 years now. Their food and quick service never fails to impress. Every dish is a corker but I can particularly recommend their beef and rice noodles, Shantung chicken, rock-salted calamari and sate chicken and snow peas. Oh and their wonderful fried rice (full of chicken and prawns and not greasy). The best... More

The large menu is mainly Chinese but all of Asia is represented. My favourite is the Malaysian char kuey teow, prawns, noodles, sauce and crunchy vegetables. Rock... More

Food is nearly always fabulous and they serve you so fast which is handy if you're going to the movies or just want a quick break from shopping. If you... More

Bookings essential for big groups on lunch outings. Pretty standard menu with choice of either individual meals or 'tapas' style dishes with steam rice. Their banquet packages looked pretty decent too. Service was quick and the food arrived in less than 10 minutes after placing our order (which was a good thing as we were on our lunch break from...

If you are interested in above average Asian food, that does not cost an arm and a leg, Sammy's is the Canberra Asian place for you. Lively atmosphere in the heart of the city even early in the week, prompt service, and simply wonderful Asian dishes. Two thumbs up!
