Went here last night with a group of friends after promising never to go back. The reason for not wanting to go back is last year in September I had a booking for three and we were all running late. One of my friends who was due to give birth in two weeks so heavily pregnant went in at 1940... More

I've been going to Sammy's kitchen for a number of years. The food is good, reasonably priced and comes out very quickly. My partner and I went there for dinner one night this week and while the service staff were polite and cordial, the management staff were extremely rude and accusatory. They seem to care more about making a quick... More

I was taken here by a family member on a visit to Canberra. Eight of us just wandered in on a Friday night at about 9 pm. The place was about three quarters full. That was no problem. They immediately set up a table for us and served water as soon as we were seated. I had been looking forward... More

I originally chose this restaurant from Trip Advisor reviews due to its tag saying it was "child and family friendly"; however, when I rang to make a booking, I mentioned about needing a high chair for our toddler, but were told that they don't have any high chairs. After thinking about how we would manage through a whole dinner sitting... More

Best to ring and book a table otherwise you will have to wait. The food is good. Service can be improved. When we went, it was a busy night and it shows in the staff's attitude.

Food was good but portions are small Pricing wad moderate and service was good. If going with a group you will need to order double of each plate if going to share.

Wow. Just wow! This was one of the busiest restaurants we've been to in a while. And as you expect with really busy restaurants, table churn, people in and out, food being delivered constantly, tables cleared, tables reset, you know that kind of thing! But, the thing is, it wasn't what you would expect. We were seated promptly, in the... More

Came here with two kids and wife. Food was delayed about 30 minutes and the lady manager was rude and arrogant when we asked where our food was. Disappointing - food was good when arrived though.
