On the restaurant strip of North Hobart, just up from the State Cinema.PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Vanidol’s sits on North Hobart’s restaurant strip and despite its tough competition, is tremendously popular with Hobartian foodies.
Vanidol Lulitanond’s success story began at a small take-away in the CBD which then doubled as a florist and spice shop, before reaching its current award-winning status. Van, as he is affectionately called, is a gentle smiling man who hails from Thailand. His brilliance in the kitchen has made his food so popular that he has opened a second restaurant, Infusion, in South Hobart.
Vanidol’s specialises in Thai, Indonesian and Indian cuisine, but it’s the Thai that takes first place. It’s tangy, fresh, and full of crunchy vegetables with seafood making up a large portion of the selection.
Vanidol's is an Asian adventure with mix and match cuisines, including laksa, Pad Thai, Indonesian rendang and from the Indian selection, the Nepalese lamb curry.
