interesting how many recommendations for indian places (not that i too don’t totally dig rama’s – yum!) when there was a request for “not asian”. [not picking, but this observation apart from needlenose, who clearly simply didn’t read the request closely] and are there just no japanese restaurants of note, or was this clearly in the ‘asian’ category?

how do canberrans see the term ‘asian’ as a geographical entity – i’d be keen to know.

I second Peppered Prawn. I went there last week, and it was absolutely delicious. Couldn’t fault it.

Peppered Prawn under Woden Sky Towers, very very good.

1) Bite to Eat in Chifley. They have Zierholz beer too.
2) Rama’s in Pearce. Although not a quiet place to eat in, but perfect for groups.
3) Delissio in Curtin.

@Bigfish – i’ve been to every restaurant mentioned on this thread and I can say that all of them have excellent food and each have their own quirks and level of ambience.

I tend to favour smaller, more intimate dining so my picks would be Ramas in Pearce for spicy food, Maestral in Weston Creek for mediterranean and Delissio in Curtin for a reliable mix. If you want to play it safe book a table at Delissio – something for everybody.

Only problem is each of these restaurants is very popular so can be busy and a tad noisy.

The best deal is 83 Restaurant at Woden Tradies. Not trendy and not upmarket but the food is great and you can eat as much as you want.

Delissio has really good food. However, for my lame arsed vote Ramas has it hands down. The food is spicy and moreish, the service is quick and efficient and Minnie, the host, makes everyone feel special. I have eaten there for 10 years and will eat there for another 10.

Another vote for Rama’s here. A Bite To Eat has good food and ambience but the service is a debacle.

Try Noble Palace on Corinna Street for really great Chinese food (especially seafood) in a well above-average setting – tablecloths and beautiful china, choose your lobster from the tank, etc.

Thai Spice, also on Corinna Street is pretty good, and Bellucci’s has decent food but patchy service. And there’s more great Indian food at Jehangir at Swinger Hill.

indian affair in phillip. by far the best butter chicken in town.

Seconding the recommendations for Delissio (brasserie style, something for everyone, some interesting meat choices available), A Bite to Eat (more for the lefty ambience), and Ramas (where the host is very hospitable and the hot curries are really very hot indeed). Alternatively, get along to the Greater Indian and International and watch Mr Bari get through a bottle while at the counter…

Ramas. Not trendy, but tasty Indian-Fijian curries…. you will leave with full tummies and a smile on your faces!

DIGRIZ 10:23 pm 26 Jul 08

Turkish Pide House banquets are great, Bellucis good too.

Granny 10:21 pm 26 Jul 08

Yep – Rama’s Indian is a favourite of mine too.

s-s-a 10:06 pm 26 Jul 08

Delissio in Curtin. A bit further afield but it $hits all over everything in Woden.

Same goes for A Bite to Eat (Chifley) and Rama’s Indian (Pearce).

My favourite is “A Bite To Eat” at the Chifley Shops. Great food with an interesting and different menu, great service and ambience.

Maestral at Weston is also good – mediterranean influence.
Lisboa and APK at Woden Shops is okay if you don’t mind sitting in a shopping centre.
