My wife and I wanted to go to dinner and rang Ivory cafe to book. Alas it was fully booked. About a week later we were in town and decided to have lunch and thought about the Ivory cafe again. This time we were lucky, spare tables. First off we were warmly greeted and shown our table. After close scrutiny... More

I have to agree with all the positive reviewers who enjoyed this restaurant. The decor is unremarkable but the food is good and very reasonably priced - and the co-owner Donna, a talented waiter, is an absolute delight. She is quick witted, cheeky and funny, and engages with patrons intuitively, seeming to get it right with each individual. We've eaten... More

This tiny little restaurant delivers amazing service. The food is excellent, authentic Thai and well priced. Everyone who ventures through the door is made to feel welcome. I have had many great meals here and often take interstate visitors to ejoy the casual ambience.

Went to the Ivory cafe for my mothers birthday, food was good but the best part was the vibe of the cafe, the waitress was so friendly and chatty that we walked away from our meal talking about the fantastic waitress for the next hour!

Our second visit to Ivory, this time we are eight. The restaurant is full, we've arrived 45 minutes early. Without fuss, we've been accommodated. We've said "feed us please", and the experience has been a culinary delight and socially most pleasant. 10/10.

We were expecting big things after reading the reviews here. We weren't disappointed. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. There was standing room only at one point so I'm not surprised the previous reviewers may have had to wait a bit. But worth it for sure!

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?
