Har Wee Yee Restaurant


If you eat just one thing at Har Wee Yee, make sure it’s the magnificent Flaming Empress Delight. That’s prawns, squid, scallops and pork ribs, all deep fried in batter and served with pineapple and onions in tangy, spicy sauce. That not enough? It’s also set on fire! It’s tián (sweet), xián (salty), suān (sour) and (spicy) all in one, not to mention totally zhēn bang (awesome). A must-try!

“The service was great and the atmosphere was so nice and relaxing. A real family affair. Plus the food was awesome. I will definitely be recommending this as one of the best Chinese restaurants in Australia. Going back there for sure!!!” – Chris Williams 33



Kawasemi Japanese Tea House


Traditionally decorated and brimming with rustic charm, Kawasemi is a beautiful venue boasting the very best Japanese food in Hobart. If you crave something exotic, the Unagi Donburi is definitely the answer. Its roasted eel cooked in sake and mirin, accompanied by rice, salad and soup. Oh, and if there’s room for dessert, give the coffee jelly a go! We’ve never had anything quite like it.

The Hub Korean Fusion BBQ


If you fancy dining with a difference, you can’t beat a good old Korean barbeque. It’s the ultimate shared eating experience, with each of you taking command of your table’s cooktop to sizzle your chosen dishes to perfection. It’s fun and immensely satisfying, and the menu is stuffed with choice. The bacon and mushroom wraps are delicious, so give ‘em a go!

Sapa Rose


Simple authenticity is the name of the game at Sapa Rose, where the formidable flavours of Vietnam converge in one handy restaurant. This place always hits the spot, and we’d very much like to recommend the Banh Xeo. They’re crispy prawn pancakes with, pork, onion and bean shoots, which you can roll up in lettuce and mint and dip into a lovely chilli fish sauce. Delicious.
