“Great place for lunch or dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Just outside of the CBD in Hobart. We went there for lunch upon recommendation and were very pleasantly surprised. An unremarkable building on a corner, but a hidden treasure. They have a small menu, great service and the food was just plain excellent and that all for very reasonable prices. We'll be back.

“Amazing meals, great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Rin is a lovely relaxed place although frequently busy. It is an easy, delicious BYO restaurant. I have been extremely happy with my meals every time I have been. Couldn't it recommend more!

“The Essence of Japan in Hobart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I took our 10 month old in for lunch today and it was something special. We were greeted by a very friendly staff member who gave our baby as much attention as she did us, she quickly took our order and our food was out within 15 minutes cooked fresh and to perfection.

We ordered the Beef Yakiniku Don and the Kaisen Tempura Don both were amazing and also included miso soup. The meals were served on a bed of beautiful rice and were a joy to eat.

The restaurant was not as small as previous reviewers have mentioned based on an a recent extension that has added a few tables and spread out the existing ones.

We are heading back tomorrow night with friends!

“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!
