I live nearby this restaurant and have walked past it several times recently - it has closed down.It is a shame because I have eaten there and it was very tasty.

This unpretentious place concentrates on the food and the food is fresh and flavorsome with a home cooked feel. The whole place feels homely. The staff are attentive and informal. We had to ask for glasses, and napkins became a stack of paper ones when they promptly arrived. That's fine. We got what we needed when we needed it. The place was full and ordering food at the counter display was easy. Corkage works on an honor system.
The enthusiastic owner came to our table for a chat and talked about the food. It's what she had at home in Indonesia and she wants to keep it that way. She's not a chef and how refreshing - I want good food and I don't give a rats about the chef cult, the food miles or who hand raised duck.
She told us that the style is to change and there will the usual a la carte style. If the food and the family approach remain this might become a trendy place.

This restaurant advertises itself as selling street stall type food, and it does this very well. The individual serves are $4 each. We have visited twice and have had great food both times. The arrangements for ordering were explained as we entered and we chose sufficient for the 4 on our table. There was plenty to choose from and the duck was excellent as was the eggplant dish and the satay chicken. Our food was delivered to our table. We brought our own wine as the place is BYO and glasses plus water were quickly put on the table.

The bill came to $20 to $25 per person on both occasions. I would recommend anyone to visit for casual dining here in Hobart.

Many issues. The tables for 2 were small but they were squeezing 3 people onto them making a small cafe ( I wouldn't call it a restaurant) even more packed. The food was in a hawker type trolley Bain Marie. We were pointed to our table so we went and sat down and waited. No menus arrived and after a while, and no direction from staff, we figured out that we had to choose from the trolley. Not a lot of choices really and each choice was $4. We had to go to the counter again to pick up our food - no table service - although the waitress came to our table to tell us the food was ready to go over and pick up. The food was variable - some tasted great and others were bland. All the food choices were small and very dry. I would say that things had been sitting in the trolley for a while ( and we were there at 6 pm). Value was very poor - very small serves. We won't be going there again. Hobart has many good Asian restaurants and this isn't one of them.

The restaurant has the food set up on a hawker style cart with various dishes that you can select from -us $4 a serve. The serves are not that big. Liked the chicken and peanut sauce and spiced eggplant. Beef rendang was very bland, but prob difficult to cater for everyones taste in 'hotness'. Duck small and chewy. Deep fried tofu average.

We came early (6 pm) but main issue is that the food is not cooked fresh to order, because it does not have the actual high turnover of a successful street stall in Asia, and is kept warm in standard dishes under lights, the food was overall not that great or warm.

Service was variable. Pleasant staff, but lengthy delays to get deep fried bananas (which were made to order). Simple, clean small wooden tables.

Not sure I would return. The meal was about $20-30 each, which n view of the food and overall experience seemed quite a bit. At this stage there are other better casual Asian food options in Hobart.
