“We've eaten here for 20 years + it's always great :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

We visited the Dickson Asian Noodle House two times last week, and have been eating here regularly for many years. It's always great. Service is very quick, too.

You really cannot find a better Laksa. They make a prawn and roast duck version for me. It's just wonderful. There were so many huge fresh prawns in the last serve I ordered I had to pass some over to my husband.

Go. Eat. Enjoy. :)

Cheap and cheerful. Tasty food with a wide selection. Attentive staff. Would return. Queue went out the door by 7 p.m. so would advise to go early - or later, or book !

“Quick service, average quality and price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We ate here for a Sunday lunch and enjoyed the meal.
My wife's half Laksa was decent (but not as good as Canton's in Queanbeyan) and my Singapore Noodles was a filling but ordinary dish, with 9 large prawns but only shreds off vegetables.
Service was fast and friendly and price was reasonable.

“Fabulous laksa”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

If you visit here, stick with the combination laksa! It is exceptional & good value. The rest of the menu is average or below...

“Good for a Quick Meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Before heading down to Canberra for a meeting, I searched TripAdvisor for a good noodles place, and Dickson Asian Noodle House came up as highly recommended.

It was a Thursday evening and my wife and I showed up early (6:30PM) just to be sure we could get a table. It was already 3/4 full when we arrived but they were able to seat us down with the proviso that we finished by 7:30PM.

I ordered the Char Kway Teow (rice noodles fried with seafood), and my wife had a Kwangtong chicken noodles. Both dishes were acceptable, but as my wife said, I could do better when we cooked at home.

So not sure of all the hype with this restaurant. Perhaps we need to revisit a few more times to see if they are really that good. For us, that evening's experience was rather average. It was quite suitable for us though as we just wanted a quick meal and the dishes were good enough.
