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.

Service was lovely but at no point were we asked if the food was alright/good. My server asked if I wanted rice with my main without me asking or any indication of the price, which considering I was charged for it I felt was quite exploitative. I had the battered tofu which was delicious, though the pumpkin dumplings which I shared as an entree were not steamed through. We were hungry and didn't want to be a pain so we didn't send it back, but regretted it when my mother's bossam noodles arrived with noodles so undercooked that some were crunchy. The pork was sparce and mostly fat and the broth overpoweringly salty. The golden gaytime bao we had for desert was nice.

My partner and I were recommended Lazy Su by a friend, and left the restaurant saying we needed to send her a thank you for sending us there! The food is great, and there's a great selection of vego options - neither of us are vegetarian, but the vego options were so delicious that any meat-eater would love them. We had the wagyu cheesesteak spring rolls, edamame, pumpkin dumplings, su-fry, and the duck, as well as a few cocktails and the dessert (both the matcha creme brulee and the nutella gaytime bao). Next time, the crispy tofu, the fried chicken ramen and the bao looked amazing. We were worried about noise levels as it's a modern looking place with lots of hard surfaces, but we had no issues holding a conversation. Staff were attentive and very helpful with recommendations around servings sizes and what to try. Will come back next time we're in Canberra!

You can't go wrong dining at Lazy Su. Yes, it is a Chinese restaurant but it is also known for it's espresso martini! Highly recommended are the bao-gers (pulled pork - yum!) and gyoza dumplings.
