The restaurant is run by a married couple - Ms is Chinese and does the dining room, while Mr is Thai and does the kitchen. Ms was great with... More

A very unassuming little restaurant. It's size and decor are very deceptive when it comes to the quality and value of the food. And to this, add the excellent customer service. It is definitely on my list of place to visit again when I next in Hobart.

The food and service continue to be consistently good here. It is worth going to for lunch and dinner. The Thai food is very tasty. It has a small but good menu. The woman who is front of house is always very helpful and cheery. Well worth a visit more than once.
