Well, this place was a Canberra institution - now situated in the snazzy area opposite to the little place they used to have 10 yrs ago. Back then, I remember smiling cheery staff and brisk service. This week, we ventured in as a party of 10. The place was busy, food looked good. And it was - for those who... More

Recommended by someone at the art gallery, this restaurant came through for us. The service was attentive and courteous. Easy to get to, being on the ground floor. The decor smart and clean. They offer a large menu, and the food looked and tasted great. The glass windows let sunshine into the dining area. If you are new in town--we... More

I find myself in Canberra regularly for work, and love any excuse to eat at Sammy's. The service is always friendly and efficient, and the food is consistently excellent. I particularly love the chili beef and the shallot pancakes. We've tried most of the extensive menu and never had a dish we didn't enjoy.

This place is always busy and gets booked out quickly but the food is fantastic. The place is a bit noisy due to how busy it is but service is friendly and quick. I do feel that they don't necessarily like you sitting around for long after you have finished your meal. Every time I have been there we have... More

Sammy's Kitchen has received great reviews from Trip Advisor contributors and my review will be no different. This very busy Chinese restaurant has very efficient staff, really wonderful cuisine, and offers real value for money. Unlike just about every Chinese Restaurant this one offers proper coffee! I cannot give a bigger recommendation than make sure you dine there. Very casual,... More

Prawn toast was thick and tasty and not over deep fried. Spring rolls were large and once again not over deep fried. For main we shared Ipoh, combination hoi fun. Gravy was... More
