5 Canberra Noodle Bars You Need in Your Life

Have you been craving more noodly goodness in your life? If so, we’ve got the perfect solution! Five of them, in fact. From ramen to laksa and everything in between, we’ve scoured Canberra to find our five favourite noodle spots!



Ka Sushi Ramen


Ramen is usually good, but Ka Sushi Ramen is something else entirely. The chefs at this sleek, contemporary Japanese restaurant make their broth from a top-secret recipe, with over ten hours of work going into every richly flavoursome batch. You can definitely taste all the special effort, and we’d heartily recommend the Jikasei Karai Ton Ramen with house-minced spicy pork to truly experience ramen greatness.

Thai Garden


One of Canberra’s finest Thai restaurants, That Garden serves up a strong selection of high-quality and deeply authentic delicacies. The creamy, spicy, coconut-based laksa is excellent, and we reckon you’ll particularly like the prawn variety. If you’re not a fan of prawns there’s always chicken, beef, pork, duck, seafood, vegetarian… your choices are many!

Pho Hub


Big, cheap and erupting with delicious flavour, Pho Hub delivers everything you’d expect you’d expect from a nice bowl of pho. This cosy Vietnamese restaurant is known for its wonderful service, and it’s perfect for practically any dining purpose (from date night to a speedy, on-the-go snack) Order the Hue Beef Vermicelli Noodle Soup, and prepare to have your life changed.

“The best Vietnamese restaurant in Canberra. The decor and ambiance are funky, the staff are friendly, and the service is fast. All dishes are reasonably priced and there are plenty of choices, including around half-a-dozen vegetarian options. Quantities are substantial the large fried rice is VERY large indeed. Pho Hub is ideal for a romantic date, a tasty lunch, or a special dinner.” – ThetaSigma



Mr Shabu Shabu


Whoever Mr Shabu Shabu is, he certainly knows a thing or two about noodles. This is a quaint, traditional little Japanese place with a real dedication to culinary craftsmanship, and it’s built up a loyal following because of it. If you fancy something a bit different, go for the Sashimi Noodles. It’s a beautiful concoction of fresh slices of raw meat, served with cold noodles and a lovely sesame sauce.

Noodle Café


Come with us to Noodle Café, where a sumptuous blend of Chinese, Lao and Thai cuisine awaits. This Garema Place gem is one of our favourite noodle spots, and we’re willing to bet it’ll soon be one of yours! We recommend ordering the Banh Canh, a beautifully simple home-style soup with chicken and homemade sticky rice flour noodles. You’ll be thinking you’ve wandered into Grandma’s kitchen once you’ve tasted the beautifully authentic flavours.
