At The Kiln, we celebrate the joys of shared meals and savoring delicious food together. Our menu revolves around the concept of Mame Zala, meaning “small plates,” and features a variety of dishes inspired by global cuisines, showcasing diverse textures and tastes.We refer to our kitchen team as a collection of chefs and take pride in creating dishes that celebrate the richness of flavour and honour individual preferences and tastes. Our food is a fusion of cultural influences, drawing inspiration from our own cultural backgrounds and experiences. We have a mix of exciting cultural influences spilling into the menu including Mediterranean, French provincial, Nepalese, Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Caribbean and the Americas.
We experiment with cooking techniques and flavour combinations, and at times break the “rules” to create exciting new dishes. We also have a number of family recipes on our menu, adding a personal touch to the dining experience. We use only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients and are committed to minimising waste. Our ever-evolving menu reflects the changing seasons and celebrates the abundance of local produce.
The Kiln in Ranelagh, Tasmania – a historic building with a fascinating past. Originally owned by blacksmith Thomas Jabez Amesbury Frankcomb, the property has since been passed down through generations of the Frankcomb family.
We invite you to join us in our beautifully restored space, where you can enjoy delicious food, good company, and a relaxed atmosphere. We don’t follow traditional rules but instead celebrate the mixing of cultures, flavours and company. We cater for all kinds of dietary requirements and have a variety of vegan and vegetarian options available.
