We had the banquet option and every time I have been to Lazy Su it has always been the best. They feature many of their most delicious dishes including the crispy chicken and the hamburger spring rolls. Lazy Su thinks outside the box. Their service is always excellent. We had a booth this time which is super fun. Their drinks menu is SO FUN. Love it. I’ll be back :)

I've somehow not been to Lazy-Su up until now, and was really excited to try this place that has been the talk of every foodie on the North Side.

My main concern was that the staff were pushy and seemingly trying to get us out of the restaurant asap. I'm aware that they have set times to turnover the table for the next booking however we'd barely settled in before we were pushed my multiple staff to order.

For me, the food didn't live up to the hype and was pricey for the quality received. I'd still recommend Lazy Su to a friend and go again myself to give it another try as it could've just been an off night.

Ambiance and vibe were 10/10 though, great spot for a drink.

We had the banquet for 4 people which had so much food and great value for Money. the first 5 dishes came out really quickly which would be better a little slower so you can enjoy every dish when its fresh on the table. My favourites of the entrees was the wagu steak spring roll and the eggplant was to die for!
The mains were a good size and the rock belly was super crispy. The addition of the amazing daytime bao for dessert was a perfect finish to the meal. I would go back again tomorrow fo every dish I had!

Great food. Service felt a little rushed however. The boozy bubble pearl tea was outstanding. The nori tacos were perfect. The booth seats however felt cramped and the table had a weird lip on it that was unpleasant. None of that detracted from a great lunch though.

Food was great and most staff were friendly, unfortunately we were pestered by our waitress 6 TIMES(!!!) about the fact that the table was needed for an 8pm booking. It totally ruined our experience, very disappointing :(

I would not recommend going on a function night due to meals coming out way to quick to be fresh with the chicken still being cold and second dish was cold asked for fresh dishes and was given new ones quick aswell and nothing had changed very disappointed in the ramen and hip hop night.

The food was good. However 1 hour for dinner was very rushed. Didn't get to finish the ramen or our drink. Also the bass was very heavy on the music and we couldn't hear the hiphop rhymes. Went to this event the first time it happened and had an absolute blast. Not sure that I'd go again.

We had the worst dining experience in ages at Lazy Su’s. The mains came out when we were still eating our entrees & when we complained, we were told that the food is delivered when it’s freshly cooked! Yes, no kidding!! This is an excuse for chefs who can’t be bothered getting their timing right. I don’t want to eat mains while I’m still eating an entree!!

The food wasn’t good - far too heavily sauced. Instead of light, tasty Japanese-influenced food, we were served rich stodge. Yuk. Won’t be back.

Nutella Gaytime Bao will change your life. Food was fabulous. Get the feed me option and sit back for one taste sensation after another. Hostess and service really let the side down. No kids menu until we asked. Entree plates were cleared. Mains arrived to no plates and no cutlery. We had to ask and only plates were bought. Felt like we had to chase them all night for one thing or another.

We had the people’s banquet, and were treated to a superb range of courses. We particularly liked the crispy pork belly, and the eggplant dish. The ice cream and marshmallow banh mi was a fun way to finish the meal. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely meal however we were disappointed when told the $10 cocktails were from 10pm to 12 (which is on your website) and you the took last orders at 11:10 and we couldn’t order a drink after this time - false advertising and left us ending the night on a bad note

The food is always delicious, I’ve been a few times so without looking automatically ordered the cheesesteak spring rolls to eat whilst we browsed the menu....unfortunately I had to ask twice where they were (once when the remainder of our food arrived, then again when we were told they were closing the kitchen would we like anything else), they made a super tasty dessert, but I would have enjoyed them as my entree! I also had to ask where my drinks were too. I’ve been five times and this is the first this has occurred so I am not too fussed but thought it worth the feedback

We were actually really disappointed in this place since we'd heard a lot of really good things about it. They got our orders wrong on 2 of the dishes, the wait was considerable and the heaters were blasting. Cool ambience but wouldn't go back to be honest.

My daughter on a visit to Canberra was excited to take her Dad out to a restaurant she had been to before and thought was fantastic. We booked well in advance but got the very low semi circular bench at the window which was cold and uncomfortable. We ordered the banquet with mixed results. The service was “efficient” and it was pretty clear when our time was up! I will pay a bit extra and get better food and service elsewhere in Canberra. Just down the street in fact.

Had the banquet with two work colleagues. Extremely tasty choice of dishes with large number of entrees and a couple of mains. Food was beautifully cooked and prepared. It arrived in good time and the price for that number of dishes was very reasonable. Will definitely be going back.

When I booked online, only the counter seating was available but there seemed to be many free tables for the time we were there. The food was very good, especially the pumpkin dumplings, however, it was overpriced for the portion sizes which were disappointingly small.
