If I were to visit Au Lac again I would probably only get it to takeaway. First, the seating is terrible! My partner and I were squished in between a booth and a tiny curtain which was separating us from the back room. Secondly, the service was pretty mediocre. They were friendly enough but very slow, and it was hard... More

Ok perhaps it was a bit too much on the title but if u r not a vegetarian u would dismiss this place altogether. We went there because one of our friends is unwell and could only have vegetarian. I am totally convinced the offerings here have far exceed the taste and texture of many other high end restaurant. It's... More

We love this restaurant, the service, the food, the ambience are a welcome retreat when we need a reward or a break. The food is well presented and tastes great. The price is reasonable.

A quick stop-in for tofu with sate and a lemongrass and chilli tofu dish with plain boiled rice, accompanied by green tea. But what I want to mention is the "young coconut" pudding! It's low-calorie and yummy - a transparent colourless jelly, simple as that, and not too sweet. Rarely do you get a nice pudding, I find, in an... More

I was catching up with a couple of friends that I hadn't seen for a few years, one of which is a vegan. I approached the restaurant with trepidation....I love my meat! I let my friends order: - lemongrass tofu - okay, but not great - beef stir fry - very good - shanton(g) chicken - delicious! I will return... More

Love this place, so tasty. I love mock meat though. Lots of my meat eater friends are happy to eat here too. Can be crowded and noisy. Not expensive. Food comes out very quickly. BYO alcohol.

I had the Au Lac Pho Soup with soy chicken - it was a meal in itself, delicious and quite inexpensive. I knew this restaurant from the time I lived in Canberra; on this visit it seemed even better than I remembered. This place is a gem for people who prefer vegetarian food, and meat lovers won't be disappointed either... More

I was amazed at the variety of dishes on offer and even more impressed with the flavours and quality. There was something for everyone, just get over the fact it is vegetarian and enjoy. The staff were all friendly & helpful and prices were very reasonable. Highly recommended.
