The food is sitting in a bain marie, a selection of curries from lamb, beef, chicken, vegetable, the curry is nice enough but a bit tired and nothing spectacular. Didn't stand out as particularly Cambodian flavoured. Curries are served with rice or noodles and some...More

Went there with friends before an evening lecture. Picked our meals from the bain marie - a good choice of meat and vegetable only dishes. Generous portions on each plate but the plates were cold and the food quickly cooled losing its flavour. What we...More

Fantastic flavours and really good value. The lamb curry was complex and tender. Chicken satay and peanut sauce delicious. Well worth a visit. Hand written menu and basic but comfortable seating. Easy to miss, but a tasty reward for the keen eye. $1 per person...More

I found Vanny's years ago and fell in love with this casual, little place with the most delicious curries that are accompanied by a fresh side salad and yummy peanut sauce. Vanny's never fails.

Vanny said he has had this place for 18 years, and living in Hobart my entire life the first time I noticed it was a month ago. It looks pretty dodgeville out the front, run down, I actually thought it was closed. Since I am...More

This place should be filled with diners at lunch time, but strangely every time I go there the place is virtually deserted. I think Vanny must be independently wealthy and only opens the joint for something to do. Maybe he owns the building and doesn't...More

Vanny's is a great little store in Hobart that dishes out a quality feed for an excellent price. While there isn't the largest variety on offer (3 meat dishes and 2 veggo ones), what is offered is consistently great. Around 13 bucks will get you...More

Basically, the title says it all. I had a huge takeaway serve that lasted me for 2 meals. Delicious curry, with several different condiments available, and Vanny is happy to add as much or as little as you like. Friendly service and a very good...More
