We booked ahead and it was a week night so not too busy. We ordered the banquet which was delicious. It wasn’t clear from the website that they sell no alcohol at all (BYO only) which was a bit annoying as two of us had...More

The Au lac makes great satay products. I have been going here with my husband for nearly 8 years. They make great rice too. One of my favourite restaurants in Canberra.
