Ivory Cafe is my family's favourite place to go for a guaranteed fresh and delicious meal. Donna at front of house is always friendly and takes the time to get to know her customers. This takes the whole experience to another level where now each time we visit it's like visiting a member of the family. We have never been... More

Very tough host, she is not polite to us at all. No proper service. Please go to find out if you feel the same! Her sorry sounds so cold and meaningless because that means you can leave now!

Came to this cafe for some Thai food based on reviews here, and this little cafe didn't disappoint. Not the best we've had, but it was warm, spicy and tasty, perfect on a cold and rainy day! The owner is a delight - she acceded to our request to have our food less spicy, and asked us if we wanted... More

Ivory is a small, busy little BYO thai cafe just 6 or 7 mins walk from the GPO. Donna and her husband run an efficient and happy place with the best food at incredibly cheap prices. This really is one of my local favourites and i highly recommend a visit or two whilst you are in Hobart. Its worth making... More

I have been here quite a few times with friends. The food is always very tasty and fresh. Donna, the owner is just a delight. I haven't been there for over 6 months and she still remembered what I ordered last time!! One of my favourite Thai restaurants in Hobart with the best hostess.

Good food, great host. Beware if you like your Thai food bland - this is the good stuff. Just the right amount of heat.

I have been here many times and as a true local, I can attest the food always delights in terms of freshness, price and individual service. Donna runs a tight ship but her ebullience charms all diners - she has a great memory too for what regulars like but like a good governess she gently steer you to some newer... More

Walked in off the street without having checked it on the net. Had the special which was the most delicious red curry with duck. Full of flavour and many elements to it. Also enjoyed the pork and ginger dumplings. The young lady serving us was also a real character and added to our experience. Thoroughly recommended.
