I've eaten at Sammys before, but this was a new low. We booked a table for 6 at 7.30, only to arrive and find no table ready. 15 minutes later we were about to leave and then told a table was ready. They attempted to squash us onto a table that would struggle to sit 4. We declined and went... More

Quick service, attentive staff and good food. Very decently priced food. This place gets really busy though so definitely recommend booking- especially for weekends/ for large groups

Who doesn't love Sammy's, Fast service and tasty dishes. On the weekends it can get a bit loud. If you were taking a baby in a capsule then perhaps go on a week night. I've been here for business lunches and the service has been very fast. On one trip we needed room to accommodate a wheel chair. The staff... More

Anyone who has lived in Canberra for longer than 6 months would have either heard of or eaten at Sammy’s Kitchen. The food is a mix of Chinese and Malaysian cuisine offering various temptations to anyone who eats there. Some argue the Chef’s favourites are the best while other just enjoy going in large groups and sharing a selection of... More

Always a classic favourite of ours because it is great value for money and excellent food. Sometimes the service is a little slow as it is often packed out with so many people.This, of course, is a great sign of a very popular restaurant!

The food at Sammy's is great, just don't go there if you want a relaxed meal. Once your order has been taken, the meal arrives within minutes and if you haven't finished eating within a short period of time, they start clearing the table to give you a not so subtle hint to hurry up. There is always a queue... More

Always great to pop in here for dinner. Even though it's very crowded and noisy all the time, the food was fantastic as normal. We love the shantau chicken, and the mongolian lamb.

I've been eating at Sammy's for over 15 years. Maybe once every 8 weeks. Fantastic service. Great food. Great prices. The menu? I'm not sure. I've only ever ordered the same meal. Every single time we go. Boneless Deep Fried Chicken. Shantung Chicken and asparagus with oyster sauce. There is no need to order anything else. Simply perfect.
