“Still Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I went back to Saowanee's this week on a Monday night. My friend and I were walk-ins, but we were seated and served immediately. Satay sticks, beef red curry and Phad Thai were served quickly. We washed it all down with Rekordelig cider, and were out within an hour. I cannot recommend Saowanee's Place highly enough.

“yes good food OK service very cramped”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Not that fond of Thai food however the flavours and freshness of the food here was sure making me get fonder! Yes, would say the best Thai food we've had in Perth. The service was OK too - slight language barrier over the ordering etc. Only downside was the way our party was jammed in round a table that was really too small and up against a wall. Wine list poor and only 1 offering of wine by the glass. Still, it is BYO - so would say it is better to do that.

“Best Thai in Perth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Yum yum yum! This is the best Thai restaurant in Perth in my opinion. It has a lovely atmosphere and feels very authentic Thai. Its quite a small restaurant and you can definitely see they concentrate more on the quality of the food instead of quantity!

“Really. Really. Really good Thai.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Soawanee's Place touts itself as the best Thai in Perth, and I'm yet to find anywhere better. Try the Massaman Curry, the Panang Curry, the paw paw salad. Just try everything.

Everything tastes handmade. The flavours are rich and beautifully balanced. You can even get Rekordeling cider. It's a win-win.
