Indulge in No. 10 Restaurant + Bar for ingredients sourced from Canberra and the surrounding regions. Offering contemporary event and a la carte menus with a superb level of service, creating a relaxed, comfortable and professional atmosphere for any occasion – breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Kick back on Chandler Street with Moon Restaurant (Japanese fusion), Indian Bay (Tandoor), Canberra Labor Club and Chargrilled (best Pizzas in town).

Benjamin Way offers variety in Pho Hub (Vietnamese), 54 Benjamin (modern Australian), Punjabi Junction (Indian), Samiuz Ristorante & Pizzeria (middle Eastern flavours) and Ramen O (Kyushu style ramen).

Stella’s by the Lake and Asian Noodle House on Beissel Street opposite the Promenade on Lake Ginninderra are highly recommended. The views on Lake Ginninderra are amazing.

The Emu Bank Eat Street includes Asian eateries featuring Sichuan Chinese, Thai or Wokitup! Bella Vista offers a finer Italian experience, while Oporto, Hungry Jacks, Ali Baba, Zambrero, Crust Pizza and Subway all fit in-between.
