Prices are outrageous and food ordinary at best. The calamari in particular was grossly overpriced and of terrible quality. Would certainly not return.

Had decent memories of this place a few years ago - what it lacked in good quality it made up for in affordability. Not this time. Went in with 2 couples and to say I was underwhelmed would be an understatement. Paid $11 for 6 bits of calamari (?) that were half the size of my little finger. Okay.. could... More

The decor appears a little out dated, but only adds to the charm of the place. All meals are tasty and the servings are large. You wont leave hungry, or broke. Prices are more than reasonable, especially the lunch menu. Wine list is basic with an acceptable markup.

Love Thai food and we needed our weekly hit while traveling around Tassie. What a wonderful surprise to find this hidden gem in Salamanca 😊 The beautiful greeting on arrival, prompt service and oh so yummy traditional Thai food. Absolutely loved every minute of it and we will be back when we are next in Hobart!

First visit tonight - divine. Roti for entree, noodles for dinner... Everything was beautiful. Lovely friendly staff thrown in, along with a lovely warm cosy restaurant. Will definitely be back, in fact we commented that it would be a great place to take interstate visitors.

We enjoyed a visit to suwan thai restaurant with friends in April. It's a good sized restaurant so we had no trouble getting in. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Would recommend.

Amazing food. Great service. Don't be put off by trying to find this place. It is just tucked into a little shopping strip. Food is wonderful.

We had a table of 7 (including the kids) and decided we would order a couple of entrees to share and then 6 mains to share. For the entrees one was a crab meat, prawn and pork ball. This was actually served with the crab claw sticking out of the ball. I have not had anything like this before and... More

Our party of four selected a range of entrees to share - vegetable curry puffs, pandas chicken, satay chicken and fish cakes. All very tasty. One of our party asked for garlic to be added to her stir fry tofu and veges with ginger which was no problem. The larb Gai had a nice balance of chilli, the long with... More
