Loved the broken rice and pork dish, well seasoned, well balanced and overall a fantastic restaurant, much like its sister shop in Dickson. Overall: a great place for an Asian fix though a bit expensive and often (justifiably) crowded.

These guys have a great range of Laksa at very reasonable rates. Food is very good and service is quick and friendly. Recommended for casual dining, family dining, business or couples.

The food here is excellent, and this venue is a staple for many Canberra residents. But on several (more than two) occasions we have found hair (or insects) in the food. The prices are also quite high for quickly-prepared food with simple ingredients. The attention to the quality of food here falls somewhere between a cheap-eat and a mid-range restaurant.... More

Went for yet another visit so my Brisbane friend could enjoy her second go at the awesome combination laksa. I wanted Phô - and guess what? They make it. And it is deeeeelicious; good meat, nice large flat white rice noodles, not oily (and if Phô is supposed to be, well I prefer this). Cheap too at $12.50

Now this branch of the trio of Noodle Houses is very simple in decor well set out in space and deliveries one of the best Laksa's this side of Malaysia. The wine list leaves a lot to be desired as the selection is very basic and the wines in the bottom end of the market however the redeeming factor is... More

I ate here recently with my two teenage daughters while visiting Canberra. All three of our dishes were wonderful and affordable. One of my daughters is a vegetarian, and we were happy to see a good selection of ego options for her on the menu. Yummy.

This place is a must visit. If you've never tried laksa then make this your first. If you like Pho then you'll love this it's like creamy Pho. Anyways there are plenty of options, but seriously try the laksa.

I went to the Australian National University which is a 15 minute walk away from this restaurant. On all of the late night study sessions, my friends and I would go get a hot, creamy and well seasoned laksa for dinner and every single time, it would not disappoint. Not to mention it's priced at a very reasonable A$12-14 depending... More

I love eating here, and it's my go to restaurant in Civic. They have delicious Pho, and the Pad Thai is also very good. I'd definitely recommend eating here for anyone looking for tasty, affordable food!

This place has the best laksa! The restaurant is well priced and the food is reliably good. The atmosphere is what you would expect for the price point. But the food more than makes up for it!
