Some years ago I thought the Dickson Noodle House was one of the best around and was justifiably famous for its laksa. Not any more ! I got a take away laksa there recently which was just about average but when I got more take away a few days later I was actually shocked at how bad it was. The... More

Great service but satay chicken entree tasted deep fried. The king prawn crispy noodles was much more tasty.

I no longer live close to this reliable and friendly restaurant but I know many who are regulars. I am pretty conservative and stick to the laksas which, very conveniently, come in two sizes, and a few of the noodle dishes like pad tai. The vegetarian spring rolls are pretty good and I have tried the gula melaka sago and... More

Great value, efficient service - not the place to linger! Whenever we visit Canberra, Dickson Noodle House is a "must visit".

I went there for lunch as it took me 10 mins to finish a meal.I strongly recommend you to try the Chicken Pad Thai . Although the prices seem to be higher than other places, but it is very delicious( soup).and sweetly.I fall in love with it

Well, Dickson Asian noodle house might been one day quite famous for their noodles and laksa. But, in my opinion, not anymore! We asked for prawn and combination laksa . The prawn in the laksa wasn't fresh and combination laksa just had duck in it! So we got duck laksa instead of combination. And it happened twice!

Living in Canberra many years ago, the Dickson Asian Noodle House was known for its amazing laksa and was a common spot for take-away. In Canberra recently, I decided to revisit the restaurant. The laksa was perhaps not quite as good as I remembered (although I did accidentally order the wrong one) but the location had been modernized and was... More

We went through a phase of visiting here at least once a fortnight in cold weather for their laksas! Best one I've had in Canberra!

I wandered in around 11am for a laksa after not having been here for a couple of years and was delighted to see nothing had changed. Good quality food and value for money. The half laksa is one of the best in town but I also have some excellent fishcakes as I am somewhat famished and the bill is still... More
