We arrived around 5.30, after booking previously, and were greeted very warmly by Mark, who was busy ‘cheffing’ in the kitchen. Ha then came to our table and we chatted for ages before ordering some wines for pre-dinner/during-dinner. She was very aware of us having a relaxing evening, ie not ordering food immediately. After delivering our wine she asked how long we’d like before ordering and we suggested fifteen minutes. Within that time frame she came back, and we gave our orders.The entree of Asian appetisers was gorgeous, and held us over until our mains arrived. Our mains were very generous, we’d ordered the Duck Curry and Seafood Medly (under the ‘Western Menu’). We were so impressed with everything that we didn’t leave a morsel on our plates. The wine prices were very reasonable, way cheaper than many restaurants. These little town businesses need our support. Have a night off from cooking and let these lovely people do it for you!!! And you don’t have to wash up afterwards.

We recently had a takeaway from this restaurant and were so extremely sad at the poor quality of the food. I love Thai food and could not believe the poor quality of both food and cooking and taste. There was nothing nice about this food, taste or flavour except dont bother to go there if you know and appreciate Thai food

thankyou for taking the time to write a review. However it is difficult to respond to your review as you had takeaway and did not mention what you ordered.. We have been operating in Franklin for 10 years and have overwhelming support from locals and tourists alike. We cook all our food fresh on the spot using the best quality ingredients possible. All flavours are authentically Thai driven with most herbs grown on the premise.
We would welcome you back anytime to try our delicious Thai food in our little family run business.

We had been told to try the Thai food at this particular restaurant. We weren't disappointed. We had Thai green chicken curry and Pad Thai. This place is a "Must go and eat a meal there' .Friendly staff in a simple setting with food of the most tasty experience. Such a find.

This restaurant is an absolute must to visit. Had the best mussaman curry I’ve had in years. Very friendly staff who stop to have a chat even though they were pretty busy with a decent crowd for mid week dining. Highly recommended.

We are regular visitors to the Huon Valley and always make a point of dining at Huon's Little Treasure while we are over that way. We look forward to our favourite dishes of red curry chicken and the duck dish. We are never disappointed as our meals have always been delicious. The owners are very friendly and the service is efficient.
