Vanidols never fails to disappoint! The food is simply delicious. We had a number of entrees and a few mains to share and they all were fantastic. The duck wraps and curry puffs are always a favourite. Thanks again!

Enjoyed our meal here. The food was delicious, I needed to vary something and that was no problem. Generous serves, eclectic atmosphere. Great price!

We’re from Sydney & have eaten a lot of Thai food- but this was easily the best Thai we’ve ever had! The service was exceptional- the owner & chef came out to introduce herself & tailored the spice in each meal to our taste. Everything was extremely well priced. Worth the short trip out of the city centre to eat here. Highly recommend!

We had an amazing meal and could not fault the food. We shared the duck pancakes wrapped in a crisp roti (superb!!) and lamb cutlets for entrée and for main course a 'to die for' snapper which was absolutely mouth watering and the chef's special duck stir-fry.
The service was excellent and our waiter really helpful and friendly. I couldn't recommend the whole experience more highly and we will certainly be back!!

Fantastic authentic Thai and Malaysian food, with excellent service from the owner who is a delight. Went with my 2 sons and we all agreed it was 5 stars all round.

On arrival we weren’t expected which I found a bit strange and then on leaving paid full price to embarrassingly remind them we were first table patrons . Putting that aside the food was amazing! We shared the entree platter for two which was a perfect size and beautiful flavours . The Thai fish cakes and satay chicken skewers a stand out for me . We then thoroughly enjoyed the lamb curry with coconut rice and roti with that satay sauce again and cucumber raita which was sweet and tangy . A perfect choice for my partner and I and we would definitely go back

Lovely food with great service. Flavours of the entree's and mains were fantastic. Great restaurant.

We had an excellent meal - despite our entree and mains all arriving at once we were able to work through the items ordered and enjoyed sharing all dishes. The children also enjoyed trying some new cuisine and the staff were very accommodating in meeting the requests of the children. We look forward to returning soon.

We opted for entrees then mains, with no room at all for dessert! All our meals, including the entrees, were generous and tasty. Service was very good and we enjoyed ourselves very much. I recommend the chicken skewers with peanut sauce - very tasty and very filling with the side of really nice rice. Corkage for our bottle of wine and 2 glasses was only $5, which we thought very reasonable.

AMAZING!!! Such authentic cruisine, genuine service and homely atmosphere. The owner (we think) was SO helpful, friendly and warm from the moment we stepped foot through the door. Couldn’t recommend this place enough.
LOVED: duck wraps, green curry and Tom yum

My hubby and I rarely get out for a date night these days with having 2 small kids, so First Table suited us so much with the convenient, early dining! We had a great time at Vanidol's North Hobart - beautiful food, nice decor and lovely service! We will definitely be back when we can schedule some more child free time

We had a great time to have dinner. There were many selections of menu. We had 2 entrees, 2 mains and a dessert which were a full of flavour and appetising presentation. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the restaurant.

My first First Table booking, and very happy with it!

I booked Vanidols (North Hobart) to catch up with some old friends I hadn't seen for years. The service was warm and friendly, the food and presentation fabulous - I had the crispy roasted duck which comes with steamed brocollini in a delicious sweet and sour sauce and a little garnish salad - and really importantly for us, the decor isn't all hard edges and polished floors, which meant we could have a great conversation at the table.

My friends had the red curry duck, the tom yung goong soup , and the fried rice with vegies, and everyone was happy.

It's a BYO restaurant but we had mocktails made in-house - highly recommend the virgin mojito, really refreshing. My only improvement would be to ask if the customer actually wants a straw, or to use paper straws, but I say that about all restaurants and bars.

Highly recommended and will be back.

Lovely service, nice setting, food was good, would be nice to have more flavour punch and more chili. The restaurant was freezing cold though and air conditioners pretty ineffective. We'll come back, try some different dishes and perhaps on a warmer night.

We enjoyed our meal - my crispy duck was delicious
But because we were the first diners the restaurant was freezing!

Delicious food, attentive service, and a really nice location to boot. What else can you really ask for? The tomyum is one of the most flavourful renditions of the dish we've ever tasted.

It was a wonderful experience, as expected. Vanidol's is a Hobart icon both as one of Hobart's oldest SouthEast Asian restaurants and one of the mainstays of North Hobart's restaurant zone.

We've both eaten at Vanidol's before and arrived with high expectations. We weren't disappointed.

For our entrée, we shared some delicious serves of curry puffs and chicken satay sticks.

For our main course, my wife had the Bali Ayam (a chicken curry) while I had the Beef Massaman. Sampling each other's main courses, both were excellent. As they say in Thailand: Aroy!

And thanks to First Table for making this delicious meal available at half price. We'll be back: both to Vanidol's and to First Table.

Food was lovely (although a bit heavy on the carrots) and service was good. I didn't realise it was BYO however this was remedied by a quick trip to the bottle shop a few doors up.

Great experience at Vanidols. Haven't been for years. No issues with being a first table customer. Orders were taken quickly and the service was attentive. Food was freshly cooked and tasty. Will be happy to return.
