“Good reliable place to eat in civic”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Eaten here a few times, food is fresh and flavoursome. Service is quick and helpful, food consistently good. Barramundi in tamarind was delicious as was the chicken tempera. Nice mix of dishes. Cheap and cheerful place to eat in civic.

“Average chinese”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

We ate here as it was one of the few restaurants with out door tables and we had our dog with us. Service was good and fast. San choi Bao was average, Mongolian beef was delicious but no doubt full of MSG! How else could you get a cheap cut of meat to have the same texture as aged eye fillet! Was thirsty all night.

Ate here again for the second time in a month & can't fault it. Yummy fresh food, quick service, realistically priced. We'll be back again!

“Shocking... ”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We were visiting Canberra on a weekend, and chose to go into this restaurant as it was really busy. The mains didn't all come out together, nor did they come out with the side of vegetables we ordered. When we asked the waiter to cancel the side of vegetables as there was no point in having them he didn't even apologise. The food was bland, tasteless and definitely not worth the money we paid. None of the four of us finished our mains. We left feeling extremely dissatisfied and hungry. Staff didn't seem to be bothered in the least.

“Awesome food”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Sammy's is always busy but for good reason - the food is outstanding. There is something for everyone as the variety on the menu is huge. My personal favourite is the steak hotpot but it's pretty hard to go wrong with most options on the menu.
