One of my favorites in Hobart - a wide selection and beautiful flavors. In particular the Penang curry is always very nice here.

When I first started eating here this restaurant had a great reputation which was well deserved. A very enjoyable eating experience was guaranteed at this eatery. However, the last few times I have been disappointed. Last week the food was SO hot, not only my dish but all other 4 people's meals were overpoweringly spicy. These were not traditionally 'hot' dishes, we all love hot Thai food, but these were extreme. One of our meals had 5 large kaffir lime leaves in this single serve. Also very crowded.....unpleasantly so. And to top it off, my new tights were ruined by the strip of Velcro-like tape under the chairs! Will look for an alternative Thai restaurant in Hobart.

Both waiters were eating whilst seating customers which didn't set a great level of confidence. My prawn entree was from a packet/frozen and the chilli sauce was commercial sauce, which is fine if price was representative. But over priced. Main calamari was also not fresh, with the fish market not 500m away, disappointing. Price tag too high for the overall quality and experience.

Food was fine but restaurant way overcrowded to the point of being uncomfortable and the service was lacking - would not return nor recommend.

Third & last visit. Despite a great chef, portions getting very small (& mostly garnish) & the pricing is unreasonable for very average service. In short, they're not as good as they think!

If dining as a foursome, be aware that the entrees only come with 3 items - this is not on the menu, & not advised at time of ordering........ And they won't add another piece if asked.
