Absolutley loved the lamb shoulder and the caramel baklava icecream. I've heard the pork belly baklava is excellent too. Lovely genreous wine pours for wine by the glass. Open every day for lunch and dinner it's the perfect business lunch spot in the CBD.

Kith and Nosh


Michele dined on Sat, 8th Sep 2018 (8)

I can recommend the K & N Kickstart Bowl with cauliflower & broccoli rice stir fried in coconut oil along with kale & almonds, topped with pickled red cabbage, chilli jam, pickled ginger, buckwheat granola & two poached eggs. Great flavours and crunch and perfect for sharing between two with Local 3 Mills toast & butter wheat & rye and fruit bread.

Belluci's Manuka


Michele dined on Thu, 30th Aug 2018 (9)

Belluci's has a great $22 lunch special that includes two great salads. Get both and share between two! The burrata and tomato salad with olives is especially delicious!

Vincent Restaurant


Michele dined on Wed, 29th Aug 2018 (9)

The Turkish Mess is a true signature dish!

Blu Ginger


Michele dined on Mon, 14th May 2018 (9)

ust had the best meal at Blu Ginger Indian Restaurant in Canberra City. Just $18 each including corkage ($2 per person) for 8 of us to eat a feast of 8 x naan, 4 serves rice, a wonderful Butter Chicken, Lamb Rogan Josh, Beef Chettinad, Palak Paneer and 3 great $10 Garden Salads. It's the first time I can remember being able to include salad with Indian eaten out and Ioved it!



Michele dined on Sat, 12th May 2018 (8)

Good emals for sharing in the restaurant, but the bar menu is fantastic for lunch. Excellent value and choices. Great atmosphere too.



Michele dined on Mon, 30th Apr 2018 (9)

The Monday night $5 burgers and Bar Menu are great value.Love the Poke bowls on the Bar Menu>

Binnys Kathitto


Michele dined on Wed, 25th Apr 2018 (10)

Binny's Katthito is a really good spot to try South Indian specialties like appam, iddyappam, meen mollee, Kerala parotta, pollichathu (fish steamed in banana leaf). My tips are If you are ordering meals to eat individually, then I say go for one of the $19 dish and side combos. These include the breads and rice based sides. They are great value because you don’t need to add on the extras. My favourite combo so far has been the Erachi Puttu with Chicken Curry $19 – a steamed rice cake layered with meat masala, along with pappadum and served with a curry. If you’re ordering dishes to share, its better to order the grills and curries and add breads and rice based sides. This makes sure there’s enough for everyone can taste a range of flavours. And the weekday lunch specials (thali is weekedn too) at $13-$15 are excellent value. A great place to try a thali for just $15 because usually they cost much more than that. Team are very warm and friendly always and nicely convenient in Lonsdale street, good and central.Like the quirky decor too.

Long Chim Sydney

Sydney CBD

The Pavlova dessert is amazing - simply must order this! The miso salmon also very good. The Moreduc Pinot Noir a good choice too.

Pod Food


Michele dined on Sat, 17th Jun 2017 (10)

Pod Food is my confirmed favourite for breakfast in Canberra. It offers a fine dining experience for mid range prices. My breakfast favourites are the $19 Field Mushroom Bruscetta and the $20 Potato and Bacon Wrapped Egg. Service, atmosphere and food are all outstanding.

Pod Food


Michele dined on Sat, 6th May 2017 (10)

Delicious food, excellent value, fine dining at mid range prices

Darbar Fine Indian Cuisine Canberra


Michele dined on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 (10)

The menu at Darbar is competitively priced and the 15-20% discount available makes it even greater value. The dishes are all excellent choices and the fact that they are modern fusion style means that people who like tapas will enjoy it too. There's a great range of interesting vegetarian dishes. Service is also very good, far above what you would usually expect from a restaurant in this range. We went as a group of 13 and spent $23 each including corkage - sampling 5 different dishes with breads and rice. All agreed it was an excellent choice.

The Palette Cafe


Michele dined on Tue, 4th Apr 2017 (9)

All lunch choices were great? Can't go wrong

Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar

Ostani Bar and Restaurant


Michele dined on Wed, 11th Jan 2017 (7)
