Seven of us went to dinner there on Saturday night. Only waited 5 minutes to get a a table inside as it was pretty cold out... The whole place was ordered chaos, but between getting our orders taken and getting the first dish served, it was only another 5 minutes (entrées that is...). The food was good, hot, abundant and...

This is one of my favourite Asian restaurants in Australia and my visit there last week didn't disappoint. I'm not sure if Sam still makes the sauces himself but you always get exactly what you expect - quality fresh and well cooked food, especially the seafood.

Quick lunch - food is reliable, fast and good. Not a place to linger but if you want to eat well and quickly its ideal. Shantung chicken is brilliant but the rendang was on the chewy side

Myself & colleague dined here last night-the food, wine, service & atmosphere were all excellent. We had 2 entrees ( San Choi bao, garlic prawns), 2 mains ( sizzling fillet steak & sammys kitchen special), with a large fried rice & bottle of grey label wolf blass Shiraz for $138. We got there at around 6.15pm & left about 8... More

Sammy's has been there forever! While it has never been a place to go for a quiet leisurely meal, it is perfect for a quick lunch with workmates or dinner before a movie. The food is consistently good and so very quick to your table. The price is very reasonable and the wine well priced by either glass or bottle.... More

Sammy's is not a place for a romantic get together, or even a night out. But it's a place to get a great meal before going out for the night. It's in the middle of the shopping area so you can go to the movies, continue shopping, or go clubbing. The food is fresh and fast and the menu is... More

This restaurant is an institution in Canberra and tightly so. It is a very busy restaurant. Booking is recommended. I went with a friend for dinner last night. I had fish fillets with fungi, shallots and ginger ($18.50) It was delicious. Very fresh and clean flavours. Wine by the glass is reasonably priced ($5). The only improvement could be the... More

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
