Not a local and know of much cheaper venues in larger capital cities. It was a mid week dinner, not too busy so our dinners came promptly.

Decided to try this place based on the range of reviews. It is an interesting part of Salamanca with lots of arcades and hidden corridors

Probably a bit expensive but the portions were filling. Massaman beef curry and a Red Duck Curry, the later had lots of vegies which as a pleasant change.

Other diners present included large groups who seemed to have a banquet. They also seemed contented with the food and venue.

The tables in this restaurant are way way too close to each other. You just can't talk to your companions without listening to people on other tables talking. The waitresses spent most of the time talking among themselves which I find pretty normal for restaurants nowadays but with prices like this, I definitely expected more. The food was average. Not bad but again expectation is there when the price tag is that high. Entrees seemed like they came off the freezers from local supermarkets. Main Couse was better but the portion was tiny.

Got takeaway while on a business trip and really enjoyed it, I was initially put off by it being a bit hidden away - but then saw how busy it was for a Tuesday night (always a good sign). It wasnt the best Thai I've had but I'd certainly go back again. I felt it was a little overpriced; but Hobart does seem to be more expensive than other Australian cities.

Wandered in to have a quick meal before a show and were very pleasantly surprised at how yummy the food is. I would highly recommend it, lovely fresh Thai flavours and snappy, pleasant service.
