Mid week dinner, Popular spot, filled with customers, but friendly staff and very quick meal delivery. Tasty fulfilling food, with both inside or outside dining options. Anything unfinished can be packed up and taken home for lunch the next day. Will return when in Canberra again

The food at Sammy's Kitchen was excellent, and surpassed any food I had eaten previously, which was a beautiful sizzling steak. It was busy and a well serviced restaurant meant I had to move before I had settled, but this is a great little spot!

Eating along while in Canberra on business... I wanted something quick but tasty. Some of the other restaurants I'd considered had packed tables and I anticipated quite a wait. Sammy's offered a table outside, were relatively quick to take my order, and came back fairly promptly with a generous and delicious meal. I went for something quick - a caramelised... More

Visited this venue for the first time with my wife last night after trolling other reviews of similar local venues, it is abviously very competitive in Canberra. I wish we had this quality of Chinese food in Sydney, beautifully cooked fresh produce, the mixed vegetables would have to rate the best I have tasted with a great selection of mushrooms... More

It was a surprise that their laksa is better than in papparich because I love laksa so much. Their sago dessert is also very nice. Service you may not expect since they are not fine dining but for the price you will get what you paid for, will come back again!

Very quick service. Fresh and tasty at a reasonable price. Often able to get a table at short notice but worth booking at peak times.

Four of us had lunch here on Friday. Getting a drink order in was frustrating but after that we shared Chicken Chow Mein,Sizzling Mongolian Lamb, Penang Char Kway Teow & Caramelized crispy skinned chicken(which arrived as pork?). All the dishes were very tasty and could recommend highly. Only downer was being charged 20 cents to use EFTPOS? How cheap can... More

Sammy's is not going to win any design awards any time soon but we were pleasantly surprised by very quick service, an extensive pan Asian menu with lots of specials and top quality food at reasonable prices

We had Beef Rendang, Shredded Duck Noodles and Stir Fry Beef Noodles, all were superb. Service was quick albeit not overly friendly, hence 4 stars instead of 5.

Thank Rob C
