Kusina, Weston

Standard

Kusina is Canberra’s only Philippino cuisine restaurant.
Family run, the service is thoughtful, friendly and attentive.

The decor is casual, but very homely and pleasant.
Ready to chat about traditional dishes and styles of cooking, wait staff are helpful and as engaged with ordering as any fine dining experience.
I tend to agree with the reviewer who decided none of the dishes on the menu will disappoint.
Everything seems to have interesting and unique flavours and textures, a real education and pleasure.

Stand out dishes were the Ukoy (prawn fritters) and the Sizzling baka (beef rib curry).
But the Halo Halo is great for dessert as a Philippino must have specialty.
Dishes are well sized for sharing and good value. Kusina also offers a 25% discount with a Canberra Entertainment Book voucher.
