Poachers Pantry

Springrange

Diana dined on Sat, 20th Jul 2019 (9)

Very nice food and flavours on a reasonable serving size in a great atmosphere. Wait staff were very friendly but there didn’t seem to be enough to cater to the needs of the room. They were very competent and constantly on their feet but this does effect customer service overall.

Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar

Barton

Diana dined on Tue, 9th Jul 2019 (8)

They forgot to serve the side dish and dessert took forever to the point I had to check if it was forgotten. Overall the quality was good. Not a fan of asparagus being served up with the white bit on the base. The duck breast serving was way too small (actual meat equivalent to less than 2 fish finger sizing). Dessert was definitely the highlight as it consistently is. Top quality flavour combinations and very well done.

The Bavarian Woden

Woden

Diana dined on Tue, 18th Jun 2019 (7)

It’s a bit pricey for what you get but there is a nice busy atmosphere and nice vibe to the place.

Oh! Canberra Restobar

Great place to have Indian! Big choice for dairy-free options.

The Yacht Club

Yarralumla

Diana dined on Thu, 6th Jun 2019 (9)

Quality food for all three courses!!!! Exceptional in that it exceeds expectations. Great service and atmosphere.

Waterfront Grill

Darling Harbour

Diana dined on Mon, 27th May 2019 (8)

My bf has dietary requirements and the restaurant did their best to cater to his needs in a very friendly manner. Steak wasn’t great but my healthy breakky bowl was a great start to the day.

Oh! Canberra Restobar

Super friendly staff and service. Great range of choice for dairy free options!

Ostani Bar and Restaurant

Barton

Diana dined on Tue, 16th Apr 2019 (8)

I like the casual but with style vibe this place has but was a little bit disappointed with the pizza topping amount considering the price point.

Indian Chatka

Gungahlin

Diana dined on Wed, 3rd Apr 2019 (9)

There was a mix-up about the discount but it was sorted in the end. The food value alone is amazing though, even without the discount, it is a bargain. Great cheese and garlic naan. Very generous portions on the curry and especially rice as well.

Great curries!!! Really enjoyed the flavours.

Chendu snow dessert is a roller coaster ride for the taste buds. A lot going on with textures and experiences that make the dessert very exciting!

Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar

Barton

Diana dined on Wed, 27th Mar 2019 (9)

The basil and olive oil creme brûlée was a definite highlight for me. A surprisingly great delight to end the meal.

Indian Accent Canberra

Canberra

Diana dined on Wed, 13th Feb 2019 (8)

I think the curries were not bad, but I love my naan and was super disappointed with both the cheese and garlic naan. They did not meet the cut for me. Goat curry was fantastic.

Tang Dynasty Restaurant

Kingston

Diana dined on Sun, 10th Feb 2019 (9)

That price point was with a 50% discount applied. Mushroom bun was very uniquely created. Some interesting fusion creations.

Parlour

Acton

Diana dined on Wed, 6th Feb 2019 (9)

Great atmosphere. The pistachio brûlée was interesting minus the Persian floss but that’s only because I am not a fan preferring the super sugary cotton candy stuff.

Il Portico

Kingston

Diana dined on Mon, 21st Jan 2019 (7)

It was alright.

Cinnabar

Diana dined on Sat, 25th Aug 2018 (8)

Crispy eggplant was like a dessert fried banana. Super sweet but very yummy.

Barbeque Nation

Wanniassa

Diana dined on Sat, 18th Aug 2018 (10)

Cool vibe atmosphere. Smoked beef rib was melt-in-your mouth texture. Some interesting offerings of flavour fusions.

The Hungry Buddha Farrer

I prefer my food to be a bit hotter (temperature-wise) and prepared a bit faster but nice flavours and a decent naan.

Cinnabar

Kingston

Diana dined on Wed, 25th Apr 2018 (8)

Nice location with some interesting offerings in terms of dishes. Not completely fusion there’s a definite twist here and there.

Wild Duck Fine Asian Cuisine

Kingston

Diana dined on Tue, 24th Apr 2018 (9)

Great flavour fusions. Deep fried mantous like little fluffy pillows of deliciousness with quality crunch factor. Very more-ish!!!

Asian fusion. A bit pricey but interesting flavour combinations.

The Yacht Club

Yarralumla

Diana dined on Tue, 17th Apr 2018 (9)

Dum Dickson

Diana dined on Wed, 11th Apr 2018 (10)

Great food! Nice to have really fresh and HOT (temperature-wise) food come out with great flavours. Super friendly service. Only downside is the size of the prawns-smallest ever seen in an Indian restaurant, like shrimps. They were also a bit dry but thank goodness the flavour of the curry was superb. I don’t understand why the place is so quiet. Really worth giving it a go if you like Indian cuisine.

Chomolungma

Manuka

Diana dined on Tue, 6th Mar 2018 (9)

I used a dimmi redemption $20 voucher and had difficulty getting this through on payment time. The lady was nice but unnecessarily wasted time for this process to be sorted.

Tasting China

Canberra

Diana dined on Fri, 6th Oct 2017 (9)

Overall great consistency in quality of food. If you are an eggplant lover though, don't order the eggplant chips as they were very disappointing compared to other places in Canberra. Nice atmosphere.

Tasting China

Canberra

Diana dined on Fri, 29th Sep 2017 (9)

Banana Fritters were great! Lobster tail serving was a bit of a joke serving size. A bit of a hiccup with the booking but it worked out in the end.

Canberra

Diana dined on Tue, 26th Sep 2017 (9)

Big portion servings. Nice vibe.

Chifley's Bar & Grill

Nice atmosphere. Food is a bit pricey but also depending on what you order will determine the worth of that pricing.

Seven by the Lake

Kingston

Diana dined on Tue, 19th Sep 2017 (7)

Naans were great but the rice was rather disappointing. Great option if you have a discount though!

The Yacht Club

I am a bit picky when it comes to chicken and found my chicken a bit dry for my liking but still within acceptable means.

Benchmark Winebar

Diana dined on Wed, 5th Jul 2017 (8)

Not a quiet setting if that is what you are after with fine dining. Seating is quite close to other tables. Even consistency across all courses which is nice.

Burger Hero

Braddon

Diana dined on Tue, 13th Jun 2017 (8)

Nice juicy patty in the burger. Fresh food with good flavours. It was a bit on the cold side sitting inside but not unbearable. Nice casual eat that doesn't compromise quality with price point.

Cinnabar

Kingston

Diana dined on Fri, 9th Jun 2017 (8)

A pricey eat for Asian food but there are some interesting fusion offers worth a try. Some tasty flavours provided.

Darbar Fine Indian Cuisine Canberra

Braddon

Diana dined on Tue, 6th Jun 2017 (10)

A great place for Indian cuisine!!! Authentic, fresh and consistent! Food comes out nice and hot! I would say that it is the best Indian in Canberra and I have eaten Indian around Canberra a lot!

Indian Accent Canberra

Canberra

Diana dined on Fri, 2nd Jun 2017 (8)

Consistent quality. The place is good at recommending dishes based on what you are after.

Delhi 6 Authentic Indian Cuisine

Canberra

Diana dined on Fri, 12th May 2017 (7)

For an Indian place the food came out rather slowly and not all at once which was different and not preferred but it was good food. Strange to have curry with no rice at the same time to mix together. I tried the Indian Lime Soda (I only took one sip and left the rest as it was really not a taste I could enjoy but it may just be something I am not used to. Unless you know what you are in for because you like it I suggest you prepare for a unique taste likened to fizzy curried water???). I didn't order enough in the initial order so added two things later which both came out incorrectly. I didn't make a fuss over it but it was confusing how it could be both wrong with only one other table to wait on (later two) and a handful of takeaway orders.

Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar

Barton

Diana dined on Tue, 6th Dec 2016 (7)

Some good points and tasty eats but not consistent across all areas making it difficult to rate fairly to reflect overall. For example, customer service and food quality.

Will definitely go back. Strong flavours with kick!

Courgette Restaurant

Canberra

Diana dined on Tue, 25th Oct 2016 (8)

The first of four courses was very disappointing but as each course came it was an improvement ending with a very delectable dessert! Better to have it that way than the other way around if consistency must be an issue.
