Went to The Scholar Chinese Restaurant with a few friends. One of the friends is originally from Canberra (half-Chinese/half-Europen) so it was as per his recommendation that we went to Dickson for Asian dinner. The restaurant we wanted to go to turned out to be full so we only picked the Scholoar because it was near the first restaurant. We didn't know what to expect. And then the experience was fantastic after all!
We ordered several dishes including a vegetarian fried rice (that was for me). My friends had prawn, chicken, scallop dishes and a seafood fried rice. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It was Saturday night and there were not many customers so perhaps that was why the service was good and fast. The staff members who looked after us spoke good English/Mandarin/Cantonese so we had no problems communicating with them.
The food looked and tasted nice and fresh, and the bill was surprisingly reasonable! We had a bottle of wine, yet it was only $115 all up (you know how expensive a bottle of wine can be in restaurants!!). As said, it was by chance we had dinner at The Scholar but I know I will be returning there for dinner when I travel to Canberra in future.
