I've eaten here at least 30 times and it is one of my favourites. You have to try the duck wraps - superb!

First night in Hobart and recommended by hotel member as his "go to place" for fantastic Thai food. Lived up to his recommendation. The duck pancakes were the best I have ever had! This is saying something because if they are on a menu, I usually have them. The daily special was fish, prawn, calamari and vegetables with chilli and... More

Visited in March 2017 after being recommended to try from our Hotel staff. Was not disappointed. Service was fantastic, staff friendly and in a genuine manner. Food was hot and fresh and you can see the chef cooking the food from the kitchen which was presented and clean. Spoke to a fantastic waiter from Bangkok who was a pleasure to... More

From the start the staff were outstanding and this continued throughout our night. We ordered a few different dishes to share amongst our table. Every dish was very tasty and all meats were melt in your mouth. Definitely recommend.

Vanidol L, Owner at Vanidols South Hobart, responded to this review

Just wondering if you are reviewing Vanidols North Hobart or Vanidols South Hobart. At Vanidols South Hobart our Pork dishes will have at least 350 grams of meat in it, which is plenty for one serve plus vegetables. Also at Vanidols South Hobart we do not have A Pork Curry on our menu. Thank you. More

Very welcoming and helpful staff - one of our party has a delicate stomach and waitress suggested a suitable dish. Food very tasty and reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Beautiful good quality food with fast service and friendly staff. A bit on the expensive side but worth it for the presentation and ambience of this long founded restaurant. Highly recommended.

A small restaurant just out of the city centre. Authentic Asian food which is delicious. Great variety and good wine list. Food reasonably priced, wine on the expensive side. $10 corkage if BYO! Great service. A good night out!
