The food at Kopi Tiam is authentic Nonya Malaysian and truly yummy. We visit every time we go to Canberra. The restaurant is always full - even on week nights.

Coming from Sydney we have been visiting Kopi Tiam in Manuka each time we visit for the last 14 or so years. the food never disappoints. the menu slowly changes (not drastic) to keep you coming back for more interesting meals.
