“Delicious Japanese!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Authentic and great value. Fresh food and speedy service. This is the sort of place that should be supported by locals to make sure it remains open. A must try!

“loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

The only time I've been to Hobart we stopped at this place, I will admit I wasn't really excited about it due to look, but after the food came out i didn't want to leave it was amazing. I would recommend this place to everyone.

“Authentic japanese cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Coming from Launceston we have limited to none authentic Japanese cuisine and discovering Rin in Hobart gives me joy. The restaurant is a tad bit small and quite packed during busy hours, but it seems like they are expanding?

Food wise - excellent varieties of food especially the weekly specials. I have to agree with some reviews that the portion is a little bit small to fill you, but I really don't mind paying a little more to get a bigger portion.

Growing up with japanese cuisine, I can rest assure you that it is the closest you can get for a restaurant in Tasmania.

“Non impressive outlook but amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

We, a group of ten, walked into this small cafe like restaurant. Unimpressed with the setup, decides to order 4 items on the menu. Waiter was confused but gladly came back with the food. We ended ordering a table full of dishes. The hand rolls were so fresh with crispy seaweeds around it. The Ramin noddle was so tasty. Everything is so fresh and the one man waiter was most competent and friendly!! Must visit!!!
