Went here for a family birthday celebration. My first time eating here … & pretty much what I expected … entertaining service from Donna, great, no frills asian food, in a small, no fuss space. We ate a selection of entrees & mains … they were all tasty, with good flavour … I particularly liked the duck dish. No problems... More

What an unexpected surprise, this little Thai Cafe has the most delicious food with a delightful person serving. She had a wonderful sense of humour and a most efficient way of handling all the front of house chores with a smile to match. This cafe is a favorite of the locals and that is also a great recommendation. Enjoy.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Ivory Cafe, the host was warm and she was funny and the food was fresh, tasty and full of vegetables which I often find lacking, particularly in noodle dishes. The restaurant is no frills but quaint and while it's BYO there is a bottle shop just around the corner.

Dishes prepared fresh to order and full of flavour. Vegies are often plentiful on the plate - serves are medium-sized overall and menu items look/taste healthy. Quirky service by someone who never forgets a face :-)

We had a really lovely lunch here. The food was excellent but perhaps best of all was the service. We had considered a couple of items for our main course but the waitress suggested that maybe they were too similar in taste so she suggested another item – it was such a good idea. We will follow her suggestions when... More

If you wish to eat at prime times a booking is advised as this little cafe is very busy. Donna does a great job of serving all the tables on her own & is attentive even when the place is fully booked. Meals come quickly, all freshly cooked & very yummy.

This is a great cafe. Reluctant to share as there are not too many tables and it is justifiably popular. All dishes are excellent, prices very fair and service friendly.

Recently visited Donna and her chef husband at Ivory cafe for a very enjoyable curry. Food is always yummy and Donna is the best host. She has a fantastic memory and is always welcoming and chatty. If you are after a good meal and witty conversation check out Ivory.
