I was disappointed that we only had 2 hour sitting and were told to pay our bill before we had received our deserts.
The staff were more than happy to take our drink orders, yet failed to tell us that we only had 10 mins to drink them.
The food was amazing and the atmosphere is great.

The food presentation was amazing. A friend of mine got her drink "Meow Thai" in a cup shaped of a cat. The food tasted great and we got sides of kimchi and chopped chili to add into our food for more flavour. The servers were friendly and patient. It is a perfect place to hang out and catch up with friends.

Usually great food and good service, we went for dinner on the weekend and couldn’t eat one of the pork belly bao’s we ordered as it was all fat (no meat at all). We also ordered drinks that never came to the table so we ended up leaving early. Was overall a disappointing experience

We really enjoyed the wage beefsteak spring roll and the Bao sliders. Very good value for money and the staff were warm and friendly. Its easy to see why this restaurant is always full to the brim. Also love the wall of lucky cats as you arrive.

Great fusion food, loved the decor, cocktail was refreshing. The only let down was service; there were lots of tables and having booked a table for 2, we got given a little round table. When asked to be seated in the booth, the waitress said they were saving it for larger groups but it ended up being given to a walk-in group of 2 people anyway.

First time at Lazy Su's after wanting to try it for so long and we were sadly disappointed. We ordered wine and had to ask 2 times where it was.. this then happened again when we bought a 2nd bottle of wine and 20 mins later we still didn't have it. We ordered the feed me menu and found the food was overwhelming shoved in front of us all at once. This meant it went cold & we felt pressured to eat quickly and not enjoy the menu. The pork pancakes were extremely tough.. we could hardly chew it. We ordered a round of cocktails at the end of our meal, one of us got a gin martini and when asking the bar staff what gin they used she was rudely dismissed and told "everyone's taste is different". She was not complaining and didn't expect a refund or a new drink, she was just asking as it had a minty taste to it which didn't go well with olives! The vibe/atmosphere is great it was just a shame the service and food didn't live up to the hype.

3rd time to Lazy Su and it was as exceptional as our previous visits. We absolutely LOVE this place! We live 3 hours away and now make it our go to place when on a weekend visit to Canberra. Every cocktail is made with love, as is every dish of their delicious food. The spicy chicken wings, tea smoked duck breast (unbelievably tender and cooked to perfection) and pork knuckle are a must. Try the mandarin and orange soju on ice with your mains - but be careful as it is potent and sneaks up on you! Friendly, efficient service (Lily was a stand out) and a great atmosphere - it's the perfect catch-up place with friends or hip venue to celebrate a special occasion. It's also great at lunch time with beautiful soups and lunch specials!

Fantastic food! Canberra has become a foodie destination with loads of excellent restaurants. In such a competitive marketplace, Lazy Su is outstanding. It's one of the city's best! Delicious and great service. Loved it. It can be hard to get a table though, so make sure you book ahead.

Service was overly attentive at the start (we were trying to figure out what to order), but then waned off as the restaurant got busier. A quick explainer as we sat down would have helped.

After the great reviews we were very disappointed in the quality of the food. The wagu beef spring rolls were fatty and difficult to eat. The tuna civiche lacked flavour and no juice..dry. The kimchi fried rice was very good.

International visitors, who know about food, really liked it. Sparked an interesting conversation about "what is traditional Australian food?". Have you thought about adding kangaroo to the menu?
Great lunch. Thank you.

This was my second time to Lazy Su. I'm a vegan so very much appreciate their vegan menu but I had the vegan banquet this time last year (my first time to Lazy Su) and then had it again this time and the quality of food and Flavours this time was not nearly as good as last time.
