“One of the better Asian choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is amongst the best choices in Hobart if you are looking for a casual, reasonably priced Asian meal. Me Wah is better but also far more expensive and formal. Vanidol is more for everyday dining.

“A North Hobart classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This place pretty much started the food strip in North Hobart and does consistently lovely Thai food. The whole fried snapper is a must, but you can't go wrong with anything on the yummy menu.

“Always A Solid Meal - Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Vanidol's has a terrific reputation in North Hobart based on many years of serving up delightful Asian food. It's gone a little upmarket these days, but the food is as nice as ever.

Try the Crying Tiger entree - just beautiful with a bit of a bite.

Their Green Curry is also a big favourite.

Prices are reasonable, the staff friendly and efficient and the location great in the middle of North Hobart.

The let down for me was that I went 2 nights in a row. Both nights I made reservations and both nights the reservations weren't recorded. On the 2nd night, after much reviewing of their reservation list, they decided I wasn't on it. We got a table anyway.

1/2 hour later they called me to ask where I was I. "I'm the bloke sitting at table 3 who has just eaten entree!"

Maybe confirm reservations as it does get pretty busy and it would be a bit of a pain to miss out.

“Great Thai food”

Have been going to Vanidol's for 20 years and it always is fantastic. Best thai food in Hobart. Vanidol is always friendly and very good if you have food allergies.

“Outstanding food consistently for 20+ years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Vanidol's continues to produce some of the most flavorsome, perfectly spiced, imaginatively presented Asian food in the country! Shared the number 2 banquet with friends recently and all were highly impressed with the food, the generosity of the servings, the quality of the service and the ambience of the restaurant. The experience was flawless - these people know what they are doing, and so the whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable. The price might be a little up on comparitive Asian restaurants but all felt we had excellent value for money.
