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

Lovely little cafe, quite small but very friendly service and also 100% fresh Thai food. I have been trying to find a Hobart Thai Restaurant that rivals my favorite in Melbourne and the food here was beautiful. Basic decor, not many drinks on offer but BYO is fine and food superb :)

When we eat out we look for good food, simply prepared at a reasonable price with friendly service. Ivory cafe ticks all the boxes! I have been twice in the last couple of months when visiting Hobart. The menu is not extensive, probably a good thing as I feel assured the food is freshly prepared. Meals are of an appropriate...
