The food is great for take away or eat in. Donna remembers who you are and what you usually order. She is passionate and engaging and likes to give you some ribbing and keep you on your toes. A true Hobart Legend!

When you first enter the Ivory Café, the minimalist surrounds and decor could remind you of a generic, underwhelming Thai take away. Once you are greeted by Donna however, it quickly becomes apparent that this place is something special. Her personable and genuine nature thoroughly enhance the dining experience. I went with repeat customers and Donna knew exactly what we... More

The food is really tasty in this small Thai restaurant just north of the Elizabeth street mall. Also it is open for lunch and dinner all week. The service is friendly and quick.

This place has a great combination of service and food. The girl taking our order was hilarious, and the food was second to none.

What a great little place to eat the owner was such a good laugh and made ordering the excellent food very easy. We had a group of 9 and used half the restaurant. Well worth going to when in Hobart

The menu fills you with anticipation, but the delivery is lacking. Maybe a menu rating of three chillis would be noticeable, but anything less is bland at best. One of the steamed dumplings was still a bit cold inside, although the filling was OK. The decor is cheap cafe style and not very comfortable, which would be OK if the... More

Be warned, blink and you may miss this place. We did and walked right past, however once inside we were warmly greeted into a minimalist décor eatery that was to soon exceed our wildest expectations! We ordered vegetarian curry puffs which the waitress informed us was made with "home-made' pastry. It was a 10 out of 10 dish with a... More
