About Mr. Good Guy
Mr. Good Guy is a South East Asian hawker-style restaurant in the centre of Hobart city. We specialise in fresh food and good times. Our Executive Chef Andrew Third, the 'Wok Jockey', is passionate about using local Tasmanian produce in our food.
Mr. Good Guy is an expression common throughout asia, meaning a friendly stranger that you would like to meet. Remember, there are no such things as strangers, only friends that you haven't met yet.
Come eat and drink with us, Mr. Good Guy would love to show you fun tims!
Coming from Bangkok, arguably a world's capital city of street food, I find the food here don't meet my expectation. Order 4 dishes as follows, Salmon Tom-Yum: This is not a Tom-Yum at all. The fish is of good quality. However, the tom-yum soup is tasteless. The rest including Seared Wagyu, Seared Scallop and Fried Rice, are ok. But they are not special and make me want to come back. The food is a bit pricey. The atmosphere and service is excellent though.
We had a lovely evening, my only criticism is the cocktails could have had a more detailed description (for ease of selection)
Hi Samantha, Glad you had a great time! Thanks for the feedback, we are always looking for ways to improve. See you again next time. Thanks, Grace
Our first dining experience at Mr Good Guy. My husband enjoys Asian cuisine but I don’t as much and was not really sure of what to expect. After dining there and selecting the $45 banquet, it was truly a remarkable food experience. All the dishes were absolutely superb and full of flavour, all the meat cooked to perfection! We could not fault the food at all! The only minor let down was the drinks service. We seemed to have been forgotten about and had to gain a waitress’ attention to order more drinks. But we will definitely be back!
Hi Karen, Thanks for such a fantastic review! It's so great to hear that we've converted you to Southeast Asian food and that you had such a great time! Thanks for the feedback about drinks service, we are always looking for ways to improve. So hopefully it will be a seamless experience next time. Thanks Grace
Enjoyed our meal. Dishes were creative. It was nice having a good restaurant in the hotel we were staying in.
Hi Suzanne, it's fantastic to hear you had such a a great time. We look forward to seeing you next time you dine with us. Thanks, Grace
The quality chilli jam was particularly enjoyable and the squid was cook to perfection. The group enjoyed the tasty food and equally tasty atmosphere. Very good venue for a baby shower/engagement/anniversary/gender reassignment shindig, or whatever it was we were there for. The staff were eager and attentive.
Hi Criag, Great to hear that you had such an awesome time. Glad you loved the food. I agree we are a great big space to have any celebration! We look forward to see you next time. Thanks, Grace
Great food fair prices staff are so helpful and kind.

PERFECT! Asian fusion at its finest
HI Chris, So great to hear you had such a fantastic time! Looking forward to the next time you dine with us! Thanks Grace
The food is excellent and well-priced, the service is friendly and, despite being a large space, the place is quiet - a rarity in restaurant these days!
Food came out almost too quickly. Ordered 3 dishes and they all came out before I even received my drink. Food is delicious though
Hi Stephanie, it's great to here you enjoyed the food. Our Chef's can certainly be efficient sometimes. Hopefully next time when your in they can slow down the pace. Thanks, Grace
Great atomosphere, delicious food and lovely service! Highly recommend! Very impressed
Hi Joel, Thanks for the great review! Glad you had such a good time. Thanks Grace
Fantastic as always!
Thank you for the great comment Serena! Glad you always have a great time with us. See you again next time. Thanks, Grace
The place looks good but my friend and I did not enjoy the food, the bao was nice but the rest we did not enjoy at all, particularly the curry which was very watery and bland.
Hi Dani Thank you for taking the time to give some feedback. I am sorry that your experience didn't fully live up to expectations and to hear that our food did not deliver the punch of flavours you were looking for, I will talk with Chef and pass on your feedback. We hope to have the chance to see you back in the restaurant in the future and deliver a more flavourful experience. Thanks Caylen, Bar + Restaurant Manager
Great food, quirky and fun place to eat
Hi Stacy, Thanks for the awesome review! Glad you had such a great time! Thanks, Grace
The best salt and pepper squid I’ve ever had - I wish they sold the chutney by the jar! Awesome dining room with USB ports at tables. Great service and excellent value for money! Will definitely be going back!
Hi Sarah, Thanks for the review! It's so nice to hear you are a salt and pepper squid fan. I agree the sauce is pretty tasty. We look forward to the next time you are in. Thanks, Grace
The food and service was fantastic but would prefer the courses to be spread over a longer period of time.
Hi Wayne, Thanks for the review! Glad you had such a awesome time. Thanks for the feedback, I'll certainly pass it on. Thanks, Grace
Appalling how we had all our 5 small plates and 3 mains plonked in front of us before we even had our wine delivered to enjoy with the food. They need to take a chill pill and get coordinated and deliver plates in an orderly fashion.
Hi Alan, Thanks for providing your feedback. I'm sorry that the experience at the restaurant was not all positive. I'll certainly pass this onto the team and hopefully we see you back again and you can have a more seamless dining experience. Thanks, Grace
Awesome night out with lovely service and a great atmosphere. Food was absolutely amazing and couldn’t fault a single thing. Will definitely be coming back!

I attended the Chinese New Year celebrations with my friend last night to celebrate my birthday. We had an absolute ball. The staff were amazing particularly Renee and Lorraine. Friendly, enthusiastic, above and beyond customer service. I’m going to come back next year.
Hi Emma, Thanks for the fantastic review! It is so nice to hear that you had such a fantastic time! We certainly wanted to celebrate the Chinese New Year occasion with a special meal and performance and it is so lovely that Renee and Lorraine ensured it was such a memorable night.
