“Best Malaysian/ Chinese food in Canberra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

I have been dining in and purchasing takeaway from Rasa Sayang for over 10 years. The service is always timely and food is flavoursome and fresh. The prices are very reasonable so it is a great venue for parties and celebrations. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. The menu has lots of yummy options to cater for everyone's needs.

The decor is out dated but that does not matter because the food is great. I will keep returning to rasa sayang time and time again. I can recommend this restaurant for groups, couples and families.

“A place to put on your "regular" list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Have been visiting this restaurant regularly over the past twenty years, with large groups, a few friends or my partner.
We come back because in all that time we have been given, quick attentive service, consistently good food, even when catering for a large group.
The food is a combination of Malay and Chinese and always is delicious.
We have established our favourite dishes; I just can't resist the Sang Chow Bow.
The staff are very obliging and are willing to go that extra step to cater for individual quirks.
Don't be put off by the "typical" Asian décor.

“Amazingly Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We chose this restaurant out of the blue as we were watching a hockey tournament nearby. We were surprised at how delicious it was! The best Asian meal I think I have eaten anywhere in a restaurant. We ordered about 7 dishes between 5 of us and every single one was great.

The waiter was very friendly and provided great service and the prices were good.

Highly recommended if you are in the area!

“Consistently good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I have visted this restaurant on many occasions and have not had a bad meal. I have often used it for a large gathering and always found it
consistent in delivering delicious food at a reasonable price. It is BYO. Service is excellent and staff efficient and obliging. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Dickson and surrounds.
Food much much better than your run of the mill Chinese that Dickson is renowned for.
