“Authentic curry laksa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This restaurant is packed even mid-week. Expect a 1 hour wait unless you book ahead or arrive before 6.30pm. The curry laksa was good, and came in Entree and Main Course sizes. The Seafood Panang curry was disappointing - very little curry sauce, and contained seafood extender (made from reconstituted fish). The decor is sparse and the service patchy, but the food was very reasonably priced, arrived quickly and the curry laksa was good value for money.

“Fast service, excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

You need to be early at lunchtime to get a table, but it's definitely worthwhile! Service is very fast. Had an awesome Combination Laksa!

“Hangover cure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Would routinely head over for a lucious bowl of pad thai to smash a nagging hangover. Not once was I disappointed. Decent portions at a reasonable price ... for Canberaa.

“This place used to be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Go to the dumpling house unless you want the Laksa. They've become more grumpy if that was possible in the last six months. The Laksa remains very good, but last time I went, my partner went for another dish and was disappointed
