Dickson Noodle House

Once again, this is one of those places that you always hear a lot of things about, some good, some bad. And this place seems to be a bit of an icon when people talk about Asian restaurants in Canberra! I was assured that there was plenty of veggie food, however a quick perusal of the menu at the dishes under vegetables showed that they all had oyster sauce in them! There were other vegetable noodle dishes, which was a bit of a relief! I shared with a friend and we had veggie tempura to start – it was quite nice, but very oily! We shared a couple of mains – Pad Thai and Cha Kway Teow (something that I simply can’t pronounce!!) – both vegetarian. Unfortunately the Cha Kway Teow came as the pork variant so I sent it back. To their credit, the new dish arrived fairly quickly. Both were quite delicious and the Cha Kway Teow was nice and spicy. Definitely a good Pad Thai – one of the better ones that I have had recently.
