I don't think that my wife and I are very fussy but the meal did not meet with our expectations maybe that's some dishes are prepared differently in Hobart as compared to Sydney. Generally the area around the waterfront house prices up to 50% more then other areas

The lunch we shared after quite an upsetting morning was really memorable and certainly calmed my nerves. The lunch was so interesting and delicious that the bad experience earlier in the day was forgotten for the moment. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

Despite an empty dining room on a Saturday night, we gave Mai Ake a chance. The entrees were prompt, but fairly uninspired and came with VERY dry julienne roots and lettuce, a thoughtless garnish which was unfortunately then served as garnish for the mains too. The mains disappointed - the salty deep fried beef in fried rice was neither salty... More

This restaurant is one of the best I've eaten at. Everything about this was fantastic. The service was attentive but not obtrusive, the food was divine, the wine list extensive and very reasonably priced. Will definately eat there again. Can't wait!!

Mai Ake is great. We have had lots of meals there including 8 of us for New Year's Eve. We also attended a birthday party there where the staff brought around beautiful finger food. The food is always hot, tasty and fresh. The host, Gunny, is delightful as are the other staff.

Mu husband and I attended a group booking at the back room of this restaurant for 30 of us @ $25.00 per head for finger food only. The food was coming out 1 plate at a time with only about a dozen pieces on it, so the people closest to the waiter were getting most of the food. When I... More

We found this restaurant by complete chance whilst visiting Hobart during the wooden boat festival - and so delighted we did - well worth it! This was so tasty we went back two nights running - in fact these were our only two nights in Hobart, and we decided not to look for anything else. The food was delicious and... More

Absolutely delicious. And first let me say, we came in on a rainy night when NO ONE else was around. When we came in, close to 21:00, the restaurant could have said they were closing (as other restaurants had said to us) because indeed it looked as though they were closing. But instead, the gracious owner served us (we were... More

I went to this restaurant for dinner on Christmas Day. It was in fact the only place (except for a crowded fish and chip takeaway shop) open in Hobart. The restaurant served Thai food which was delicious and consistent with previous Thai restaurants. The Pad Thai was absolutely delicious after not eating the entire day (Thanks Hobart!). Furthermore the restaurant... More
