“Best Mongolian Lamb i have EVER tasted!!!!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

A work colleague and myself decided to stop by Sammy's for a cheeky lunch. The staff were very attentive even though the restaurant was bussling with lunchtime customers.

The meals are absolutely delicious and affordable.

I cannot highly recommend the Mongolian Lamb highly enough.

Cannot WAIT to go back again !!!!!

“Great Food, Vibrant Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

This is a busy bustling restaurant with great food and a very lively feel to the place. It is not a fancy fine dining restaurant, but the sort of place that you would go with friends for good asian food at a good price served relatively quickly. This is not the place for a romantic dinner but is good for a lively ambience buzzing with conversation.

The offerings are many and varied and the wine list adequate. I went there with business colleagues and we had a great evening. The food was so good that we ordered a second round of dishes.

We went on a Wednesday evening and were able to book quite late in the afternoon and get a table without any difficulty. I enjoyed the food so much I went back on my own for lunch on the following day and had no trouble finding a table outside from where I could observe the passing throng.

I will definitely be back when I am in Canberra again.

“Accidental Joy”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

In Canberra for a couple of days and stumbled across this gem of a restaurant offering wonderful Asian food with a more than sensible wine list (including cab sav from Langhorne Creek). Had Sammy's Special with steamed rice (obviously a favourite here) and the restaurant is full at 6.30pm on a Tuesday night. Exceeded expectations in all areas. Highly recommended,

“Not up to its previous standard”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

There was nothing wrong with the food - our visitor said it was better than what he was used to in Jakarta - but both the pork and duck was very fatty and the vegetables contained a lot of hard, slightly woody stems. We have visited Sammy's at other times and this definitely wasn't up to their usual standard. They were very busy and perhaps this contributed. Still, the food came quickly and the price for 3 with drinks was under $100.

“Cheap and cheerful”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We ate here last week, after a big day of work and travel.
Five minute walk from our hotel, it filled the bill.
Nothing sensational, but fresh and tasty Asian food in a clean, buzzy restaurant.
Very quick and efficient service.
Three of us were in and out in an hour, with a bill totalling $100
Perfect.....
