This is one of my favourite vegan restaurants in Canberra and I often take my non-vegan, non- vegetarian friends here. Friends are always surprised by the variety and quality of the food, particularly when ordering mock meats. Prices are reasonable and the service, friendly.

The mock meat at this place was good however the flavours were somewhat generic, with no real spice or depth to the flavours.

I've never eaten soy chicken before. It was excellent. Crispy veggies, lovely sauce, great service and reasonable bill. Highly recommend.

I absolutely love this place. I have eaten here for 7 years while being vegan and only started eating meat again this year, but would recommend it to vegans, vegetarians or meat eaters. Lovely lovely food. Great lunch time deals

All the food i've had here is amazing, from the fried rices to the soy duck. But what really makes this place worth coming to over and over again is their soups. Specifically their spicy soy beef sweet and sour soup off the Chef's Specials menu may be one of the best soups i've ever had. A tom yum soup... More

I've been here and ordered out a number of times and it's always delicious. I could never recreate such great dishes. I particularly like the duck and a number of the beef dishes. Plus there is the good feeling that goes along with eating vegan ;)

Whenever in Canberra take the opportunity to go to Au Lac. The quality of food never disappoints. Always top quality and the staff very friendly. What they do with plant based food is amazing! The fried ice cream is devine and a must for any plant eater. Will definitely be back again

Great free & healthy food that tastes great. We enjoyed the stir fried vegetables and mushrooms, the eggplant claypot and fried spicy salt & chilli squid. The service was fast and friendly. And the bill was very acceptable. It is easily understood why this place was recommended to us by a Canberra local.

I remember the first time one of my friends took me to the place when I visited Canberra many years ago. At this point in time food was great and the mock meat impressed me. Then I took my husband to the restaurant and did not tell him that it was vegetarian. He just skimmed the menu card noticing the... More

I visited Au Lac in Dickson, Canberra as part of a trip from the far coast of NSW so now I need to think of another excuse to visit Canberra again so I can return to Au Lac for dinner, The positives- Loved the food which was not too oily.
