Loved my Tom yum gai. One of the best I've had. Spicey, not to sweet. Service was great, friendly. A must visit.

This humble little restaurant in the heart of the north hobart restaurant hub is easy to miss if you didn't know it was there. The service is fast and the food is fresh and tasty ... well spiced... and very inexpensive with an average of $13 per meal. The decor is plain, however the food makes up for any visual... More

This is an unpretentious and affordable Thai eatery that's perfect for a no frills, fab food experience. Quick service and quality food that gets you in and out without fuss.

We ordered take out from cool tai on a recommendation from a local, we waited a good 40 minutes for our dinner ( although they were really busy) we found the food to be more rice than anything else not much flavour and the little meat that was in it was a little tough

I was looking for traditional Thai food, as always, but this was more fast food and not as I was hoping for. The staff was very friendly, though.

Their Chicken Curry puffs are just a stand out. Chicken stay is lovely. The sauce is very tasty. Prawn laska is just amazing and has just the right amount of heat.

I love to get takeaway from Cool Thai. Lovely fresh flavours, great prices and friendly staff. Only down side is the web site says 7 days and I can't get the phone to answer on a Monday so assume they are closed on Mondays!

I was in the mood for Thai and these folk delivered. I got Masaman curry and rice to take-away, and it tasted as it should. No surprises.

Well above average thai food at very cheap prices. BYO. It is a no frills type of place that you might not choose for a first date, but is excellent for what it is.
