Tuggie Palace is a strange place. Previously, it was called Lakeview restaurant, but did not have much of a view, as the buildings in front of it obstruct the view, despite the fact that the restaurant is located on the first floor.
Now it is a 'Palace'. Well, in my view, nothing in the interior, except for a terracotta warier who meets you when you climb the stairs, really supports this.
And the main puzzle is how it never gets many customers, but manages to survive. Over the last years we visited the restaurant a number of times and it never was at least half full.
Oh well, if you like a quiet private dining it is only good for you. Because it is worth to come here as cooking is good, not something overwhelming, but good.
Do not expect an excellent service. Like many other Chinese restaurants in Canberra they use kids as waiters (students?), who sometimes even do not know how to open a bottle of sparkling wine.
However, if you happen to be in the area and is looking for reasonably good Chinese food, it may be a good choice. With all the puzzles mentioned above.
