Yummy yummy!! What a great meal. Have not been to this restaurant before, but will definitely return. After wandering around the great food precinct of Dickson, we decided on Jimmys, as it was fairly full, and many were Asians, which is a good sign. Well, our theory worked once again. It was delicious. And also very reasonable cost. Service was friendly and first class. Very clean and well set up. There were many families, and young groups also.could not fault it. Everyone was given a plate of orange wedges, just to finish off a great evening.
If travelling from the north, just turn left off Northbourne Ave to Dickson shops and Jimmys is right on the corner in the middle of the restaurants opposite the Irish Pub. If you are there in the evening you can park in the shopping centre car park at times, with no fee. Check it out. You pay everywhere to park in Canberra. So always have change with you. We travel through to family in Jindabyne regularly and are slowly getting used to Canberra, as we stop overnight to break the trip.

This was our first visit to Jimmy's in the "new" location - a larger, up-market but similar restaurant to before (open to the kitchen etc) but it now has several live sea-food tanks. Wow - the food is still top class! Of course we had their steamed (massive!) oysters in their special sauce - fantastic. Plus we had whitebait, deep-fried whole king prawns with spicey salt, crispy skin chicken with shallots & ginger, lamb & plum sauce, beef with black bean sauce. All were fresh and the best. Jimmy's is still the best quality/best value Asian restaurant in Canberra.

Dropped in for a serve of XO pippi's. I love them and they lived up to my expectations.
Service was only just but it was extremely busy. Lucky we booked.

As a local eatery this never fails for us. I recommend a visit.

To be expected on a Saturday night it was quite busy. Food was quick and very good. Service was a little too brusque and impersonal. Well located in the Dickson eatery district.

We ordered crab for two. We were assured twice that it would be 1.2 kg (@$45 per kg) but when we came to pay the bill they charged $88. I complained but was told it was too bad as they were busy and them some guy came out of the kitchen to abuse us.
