Modern South-East Asian restaurant and cocktail bar located in the heart of Hobart’s CBD. Socially minded and passionately driven to bring you the freshest seasonal produce and a uniquely ethical dining experience.
Born from a love of the hospitality culture both from our neighbours abroad and our hometown here in Hobart, Dāna Eating House is a fresh and innovative place to eat, drink and share in a uniquely socially-minded dining experience.
We bring you the vibrant and bold South-East Asian flavours that we’ve grown to love, alongside a modern Australian influence and service style. Come alone, with a friend or three, or let us host your group in our private function room for an intimate evening of share plates complimented by our extensive drinks selection.
Larger functions or venue hire available! Just chat to our friendly management team.
Our menu is seasonal as we endeavour to utilise the highest quality and freshest produce while supporting our local farmers at every opportunity. With this in mind we collide mouth-wateringly fresh South-East Asian flavours with a modern Australian twist.
dāna // (sanskrit) the practice of cultivating generosity
At Dāna we believe that doing something is 100% better than doing nothing. As equally as we are passionate about hospitality, we believe that this industry is an incredible platform to push a little more and do a little good.
Our practices: Over a rotational period we will be partnering with a local or global charity/not-for-profit organisation and donating a percentage of our profits directly to this cause. Every customer who dines with us will have the opportunity to match our small donation. No pressure – no questions asked – simply by dining at Dāna you are allowing us to donate on your behalf to a group that needs our help – and we think that’s pretty damn great.
We have a clear ethos: we want to bring you the best food and drink, and do some good while we’re doin’ it.
