My partner and I had the set banquet meal here. It was lovely to have a few different things to try and we thoroughly enjoyed them all. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and the ambience was very nice. Staff were attentive.

Happened on this place accidentally while hunting for a place to eat before a concert in Perth. What a pleasant surprise! Friendly family-run place with fantastic Thai food. Best Phad Thai I've ever eaten. Went for a take-out the following day before leaving---that's how much I like it. Low-key and reasonably priced. Would definitely go again if in Perth.

Tasty Thai food with friendly helpful staff. Menu isn't the most adventurous but reasonably priced and a good selection.

Thank you for your recent review. I am sorry that you thought the portions were rather small, this has never been said before. The curry that you mentioned is served in a large bowl and when taken with rice which you did not not mention ordering is we think more than sufficient. I appreciate that some people have larger appetites... More

The best Thai food I've had outside the Far East! So authentic, not at all tampered with for the Western palette! What a lovely, friendly family. Can't wait to go back!! x

Food is excellent but decor lets it down a bit. Toilets to be avoided. Thai food is a bit more expensive than chinese but is worth it. Friendly good service.

This is the best Thai I have been to outwith Thailand. The staff are good at steering anyone away from something which maybe too hot if that is not your thing. The duck with grapes is a real winner.

I came with friends in June 2014 after a recommendation. I do enjoy Thai food despite being vegetarian, and other Thai restaurants have accomodated my vegetarianism by omitting fish sauce when making dishes in the past. However, this restaurant failed to accommodate me in any way despite lengthy discussion - they did not even substitute veg for meat in other... More

The Mae-Ping does indeed accommodate vegetarians; ninety percent of our menu has vegetarian options we do not however have a Vegan menu. Despite describing herself as a vegetarian the lady’s requirement was for a Vegan meal leaving out fish sauce, one of the main ingredients in Thai cuisine for which there is no substitute. The Lady says that we failed... More

My colleagues really enjoy eating Thai when we are away on business, having lived in Thailand I don't have the same excitement for it, but I try and help them through a menu. The Manager was an interesting guy, he had lived in Thailand as well. The salad we ordered was a well known spicy papaya salad, which in Thailand... More
