A delightful taste of Thailand in the deep south of Tasmania

A small orange cabin in Tasmania’s far south - several kilometres from the nearest shop - is an unlikely venue where you can discover some of the most authentic Thai food in the state.

Ashcraig Farm at Nicholls Rivulet, outside Cygnet, is an organic fruit and vegetable farm that sells produce to several of Tasmania’s top eateries, but it is also home to a Thai restaurant that draws in locals and those in the know.

With a chef from Isaan (known for its spicy chili-accented food), Ashcraig serves up dishes like tom kha soup, massaman beef, basil chili and tom yum stir fries, and a range of curries.


My personal favourite is the stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts (above, ask for extra spicy if you like a bit of heat) and the green curries.

The food re-heats very well, so anyone staying in a B&B can pick some up on arrival and then enjoy at night as the Huon Valley is a short of evening dining destinations, particularly early in the week.    

Eat in or takeaway from Thursdays to Sundays. BYO. Call (03) 6295 0901.
