Best Laksa!

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!

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!

We have eaten here several times. We visit Canberra 3 or 4 times a year and we are always pleased when friends suggest eating here. This was our first time just the two of us. I had chicken pad seuw and hubby had the large serve of combination laksa and we shared vegetable tempura because there is no better tempura... More

I first came here last year because of the recommendations on here and we decided to try again when I was back in in Canberra. It was as I remembered it; glorious! The laksa was full-flavoured and balanced, with a nice creamy coconut milk soup. It was perfect for a freezing evening (or any evening or lunch to be honest).... More

Had a quick lunch here with some work colleagues. They have a good selection of lunchtime specials. I decided on a Chicken Laksa and restrained myself with a half serve. Lucky for me that I did, the full size is very generous. My colleagues had the Laksa lunch special (2 spring rolls; full size Laksa; and a drink) and struggled... More

We had take-aways from here twice during our visit to Canberra. If we lived there, this would be a favourite restaurant. The flavours of all the dishes we ordered were amazing and beautifully spicy. And cheap. Excellent!

In my lunch break at work, this is one place that can turn your food around in under 30 minutes. There $11- lunch special has a variety which is fantastic. and you get FREE prawn crackers on arrival. Winner there.

The sign out the front states no. 1 Laksa, and it was. Great size serving and was a spot on feed. Will definitely be back.
