Good selection and service very busy book if you want to eat later. Char Kuay Teow was well cooked could have been a bit more tasty.

I agree with all the foregoing comments. As Canberra locals, we've eaten there many times and have always had great service that's cheerful and quick, plus a great array of tasty and satisfying choices. Many thanks to staff and chefs.

Whenever I'm in Canberra I head to Kopi Tiam. The food and service are impeccable and when they are available the zucchini flowers are to die for - great fusion of East and West. Try the Bali Chicken with a serve if Roti and small rice - you will find it hard to work your way through the menu after that! Any meal I have eaten there has been brilliant. Try it - you will be left wanting more - and it just might become your favorite place to eat in Canberra too.

I regularly dine at this restaurant, and always enjoy fresh, interesting meals and friendly, helpful service. Good range of vegetarian, including vegan, options. Excellent value and highly recommended.

This place is always a favourite when travelling through Canberra. The locals must also rate it highly, as it is always full and buzzing with a lovely atmosphere. Staff are friendly and service is fast without feeling rushed through your meal.
Value for money with great portions and wonderful variety. This is not one of those Asian restaurants that you leave feeling full, but then hungry again one hour later. Highly recommend the Prawn and Zucchini fritters with Tempura vegetables as a starter... YUM!!!
