    Dum Dickson on a weds night was exactly as we’d hoped: quiet, great service and good food. The wait staff were attentive and helpful. The atmosphere was conducive to normal level conversation (no background music, thankfully). We shared a number of dishes, all good. I’d happily go there again.

    Dum Dickson is the best Indian restaurant in Canberra. The service is excellent and the food is delicious.

    The dum goat curry was one of the best I’ve eaten in years!!! Other dishes were very mild even after we asked for medium.

    Nice place, next to the busy Dickson eating precinct, but surprisingly not so crowded. Food is good for our liking.

    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.

    Good food and great service. Chicken 65 and tikka masala was sensational. Tandoori roti was great.

    I can’t believe this restaurant is never full. Food is excellent. Naan bread is the best. Makai lofts is delicious as is the paneer with peas. Great dish.

    Great food. All dishes very tasty especially the malai kofta. Friend said naan best he had ever had. Didn't have any sparkling mineral water or soda water in stock unfortunately. It's BYO as no liquor licence to see in restaurant.

    This restaurant is relatively new and is yet to establish itself in an already established eating precinct. Sadly, being the midle of winter, things were a little slow when we visited but we hope this will improve. The food was good and the service great.

This delicious Indian local is well worth a visit. Come and enjoy a traditional feast of all your favourite dishes, plus a few innovative creations.

We can't go past the prawn curry or the bengali daal. The desserts are also delicious, so make sure you save room for the mango kulfi.
