We were disappointed with this restaurant, especially after reading so many great reviews. The service was appalling, despite the co-owner trying her best to make jokes and excuses for why it took over an hour for our meal to be served. It is a case of the restaurant not coping if there is one large group and several other tables... More

We visited Ivory for the first time tonight. Recommended by neighbours, we met a friend and her brother and sister in law. The food beautiful, the service excellent, and the entertainment by mine-host beyond reproach. We'll be back.

Went recently after recommendation by a friend.we were not disappointed.the dumplings were fantastic and the mains were hard to beat.Didn't get to try desert as the kitchen closes relatively early.The owner is an absolute hoot.don't miss this place if you like good food in a non-pretentious setting.

A great little place. Excellent food, fresh and flavoursome. Hilarious owner. Unbeatable prices. What's not to love?

What a friendly and warm welcome. It is a city centre cafe which is very popular with local residents. We had a selection of different dishes which were nicely presented and piping hot. The service is excellent. One tip to diners it is a BYO as they do not have a liquor license. We went there early in my visit... More

Somehow I have only discovered this little gem recently - perhaps because it is city centre and easy to walk by without noticing. It is, however, well worth noticing! It is a two people business with Donna out front and her partner in the kitchen. He turns out beautiful fresh and tasty meals with great Thai flavours; she serves everyone... More

How hard can two people work? With one out front and one in the kitchen the range and quality of food is amazing. Curries and soups are delicious and prices very reasonable for the quality. Have had many lunches and a few dinners and will return again and again. An authentic taste of Thailand in Hobart

We found this place online and we had to write a review! It's small and quaint and we all loved our meals. It cost $100 for the 4 of us and the food was fresh and authentic; we would definitely recommend!! The owner is lovely, honest and genuinely happy to help.

We went here on a friends recommendation and were quite hungry so ordered entrees and mains. The spring rolls were chock full of flavour and the prawn dumplings a taste sensation. For mains we shared the beef massaman, tasty and tender with not too much potato, and the chicken stir fry which was very fresh. Service was very good and... More
