Funny little place, more like a plain cafe or takeaway shop than a restaurant. However, the food was surprisingly good, and some of our group have spent huge amounts of time in Thailand having teeth pulled - they do know good Thai when they eat it. Thai cooks out the back and young attractive Aussie waitress/order taker at the counter.... More

I had read some great reviews and some not. I think those in the 'not' are being a bit precious perhaps. This food was full of a range of vegetables, lovely and spicy as I asked for...too hot for my husband so that's a great indicator. Fresh and well priced. It's a takeaway place but if you decide to eat... More

I have eaten at this friendly little restaurant frequently and never been disappointed. The staff are willing to advise and explain all the dishes on offer, serves are generous. And well presented. This is a good spot on the edge of the CBD to get a tasty quick meal.

I LOVE this place. It's a cafe, not a restaurant, but the food is divine. Right now I'm enjoying a lunch special - red curry beef with rice, small serve (which is actually quite sizeable), $10.50. Hard to beat. I highly recommend this little place!

Popped in for a quick eat in meal. Ordered and food came out fast. But meal was not as described and had a burnt flavour with black bit from the wok. Dish was replaced at time with no fuss. But the second dish was no better.

The pad thai was ok - everything else was pretty bland and generic. Everything had carrots in it...and not a lot else! There's better Thai, in Hobart, surely!

As a backpacker, fresh healthy food at a good price can be hard to come by. Delicious Tom Kha soup, excellent service, good price. I'd go again!

Stayed in Tasmania twice and actually came to eat here twice because the food was so delicious. The service is friendly and helpful. Come here because the food is AWESOME!

We ate the seafood fried rice and chicken pad thai. Love the scallops in the fried rice! The pad thai was missing peanuts but not overly sweet which was good. Paid $28 in total for 2 mains and a thai fish cake ($1.50/piece).

Continuously go back to this place. The laksa and Pad Thai are two of my favourites. serving sizes are great for the price.
