As a pioneer of Kingston Foreshore, The Wild Duck has been treating Canberrans to the very best of Chinese and South-East Asian cuisine since 2012. In one of the city’s most beautiful dining rooms, diners can experience stunning food, rare and exciting wines and professional service that has seen to restaurant collect so many awards. The menu focuses on cuisines across China and throughout South-East Asia.

The Brewer's Choice

20/04/2016 by Nic Crowther

Since opening in early 2015, BentSpoke Brewing Company has been a raging success. The business, owned by brewer Richard Watkins and partner Tracy Margrain, has become an inner-city favourite. Once you enter, it becomes very clear that this is about more than just brewing beautiful beer, and the team acknowledges this by not simply putting together a great menu to complement the beers, cider and ginger beer brewed on-site; the aim is to include as many of these drinks as possible though the recipes themselves.

Thai Surprise at The Southern Cross Club

05/04/2016 by Nic Crowther

One of Canberra’s best surprises is Thai Chiang Rai in Canberra Southern Cross Club in Phillip. After eleven years of success in Belconnen, this new venue brings the much-loved Thai flavours to the Woden precinct, in a venue that will surprise you. Walking up the stairs from the main lobby area of the club, diners are elevated into a beautiful space that has its own relaxed ambience. With this sort of atmosphere, the restaurant could be a million miles away (or at the very least, a few thousand kilometres north!).

150 Years of Classic Pub Style

22/03/2016 by Nic Crowther

Great venues don’t respond to trends. They adhere to a classic style, and simply infuse the fashions of the world around them without implementing dramatic change. This is certainly the case with The Old Canberra Inn and is a philosophy strongly held by its new owners. The 150-year-old-pub defies Canberra’s contemporary architecture by offering a glimpse into a different era - a time when nearby farmers and villagers might have arrived by horse to wash away the aches and pains of a hard day of work.
