This is in the middle of Civic, the heart of Canberra. Food is excellent, and great value for money. Just be prepared that their staff has no time to be nice, smile or do more than take your order, bring it in and ensure you eat quickly and get out for the next customer lining up. A bit like a feeding factory :-)

Sammy's Kitchen is a busy, bustling restaurant, but it is usually still easy to get a table. Service is amazingly fast and the range and quality of food is great. It is not the place to go if you want to be able to talk to your dining partners - it is incredibly noisy. Take a table outside if you want to hear yourself think.

Perfect place for a quick and delicious meal before a movie or show. It's always busy! My favorite dish is the salt & pepper tofu......mmmmmm

Sammy's food is unbeatable for a quick Chinese/Malaysian feed. The food is consistently first class, Shantung Chicken and belachan beans with king prawns are our favourites. The restaurant is consistently packed, and the service fast and furious. I would highly recommend that you book a table. A great place to eat pre or post a movie at Dendy. Don't expect too many smiles from the wait staff or Management as it is purely business.
