I ordered a vegetarian stir fry and vegetarian noodles takeaway. I didn't realise when I was ordering I was looking at the melbourne menu so when I went to pay I was surprised that it was $36. $18 for a vegetarian dish seems a bit expensive to me, but I'm not a local so maybe that's why prices in tassie...

Awesome food and friendly service, easy to find location and well priced. I had the Pad Thai and can happily report it was one of the best I have had. We stopped by for a quick late lunch and the meal was big enough that we didn't eat dinner. 10/10 for a great establishment, on our travels we had more... More

I have just visited this little restaurant, the service was good and food tastes good but I think it was missing the Thai spices and sauces, did not remind me like any stir fry I had in Thai - or even in Sydney but overall ok.

Great tasting food. Each member of our party loved the flavour and the size of their meal. Excellent table service for a busy little restaurant. Will be going again next time we visit Launceston.

Visited this on our last night in town, wish we had done it earlier we may have made it back for a revisit. I had the blackboard special, that featured local seafood. It was excellent. The rest of my party were all very happy with thier meals. Will visit next time I'm in town.

The main dish is not really significant, I was so disappointed with Thai milk tea, it was tasteless ! I think it's quite pricey comparing to other Thai restaurants, meal portion is quite small. However staff is very attentive and nice

Love, love, Love this place to eat. For such a tiny place it certainly out shines many larger restaurants. During December, I dinned here twice, however would have dinned here every night if I could! Every time I have dinned here, the food is always so delicious and fresh. The price of meals here are very reasonable and very good... More
