The Ivory - a little gem.

The Ivory Cafe is a great place for lunch in Hobart! They serve delicious Asian style, fresh food , cooked at the cafe. The service is friendly and helpful. The cafe is tiny so you might need to book a table.

The food is always excellent, the service is always friendly, helpful and inviting and, for lunch breaks, the food out in no time at all. A real little gem.

What can I say that's anything different to nearly all the reviews on this site? Nothing, its all be said before. Excellent food, Fresh, Great prices and a host that makes the place. I cant believe how much Donna remembers about you. She makes the evening special because of this. Her banter and knowledge on what we might like is... More

If you want to have a delightful night out with great food and fun look no further than Ivory Cafe in Elizabeth Street Hobart. Donna- front of house is so full of personality. It is a very small cafe so bookings are essential.. Don't miss it. ,

Came for our third visit to this great little restaurant, once again faultless, fresh, tasty food. We made up a group of 9, other tables all full, Donna handled everyone perfectly on her own. A beautiful example of a well organised couple, running a great little restaurant, serving fresh, light food, in a clean and cosy environment at very reasonable... More

We had the beef massaman curry, the stir fried chicken with ginger and rice. Both were very fresh and tasty with some spice to the flavour. Donna gave us a warm welcome and food was served quickly. The cafe was very clean and warm on a cold night. Atmosphere is of a cafe but at these prices is very good... More

On average, I eat at Ivory Café once a fortnight because the food is EXCELLENT - fresh and beautifully cooked. Donna, co-owner/front of house person, is delightful. Her sense of humour is genuine and constant. She remembers her regulars and always has a light-hearted quip to deliver. Her partner and co-owner is 'out the back' cooking up a storm. The... More

We had visited a well known nearby Gastropub and had areally amusing time reading a fictional narrative I found at the counter. The fiction I refer to is of course the new Aussie "Foodwank". It was such a pile of sickening bolocks that it became sadder rather than funnier and I had to leave for fear of chundering in shame.... More

Well that's not strictly true but I am a tragic for them as the hosts over the top reaction to my last order of Red Duck Curry showed. Host is a show worth the price of admission all in herself! Great service, great food, get in and try it!

The best Thai food in Hobart. Wouldn't go anywhere else, this is where the locals eat. YUM with a capital Y. To top things off the host is welcoming & funny, always!
