Late Night and Solo Dining in Canberra

I will be visiting Canberra this coming weekend and will have one night by myself and one night where my wife will be getting in late, so I'm looking for good but cheap (no more than $25 mains and hopefully cheaper than that) options for both nights. On my solo night, I'll be staying by ANU, but would be willing to travel if there's somewhere worth going around town. For the second night, we'll be staying in Forrest and probably looking to sit down to eat around 10 pm. I'm coming from Sydney, so I'd rather not go for Thai. African, especially Ethiopian food would be great. Any help would be appreciated as I know nothing about Canberra.

    I don't know Canberra well, but I did have a good Ethiopian meal on the big food square in Dickson (I think)

      Portia's place - in Kingston
      Excellent chinese and if parliament is sitting you can do some poli spotting.
      Had an excellent night here on my own. The service was also attentive.
