“Really good Thai!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

This place doesn't look like much. Very basic with plastic table cloths but don't be fooled, the food is really good. Full of flavour and large potions.

“Great Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Small and very intimate dining room, that is a little bland, not somewhere you would be for long. Service is excellent as is the food, fantastic, one of the best in Perth. A little expensive for what it is. But eating in Perth is ridiculous on price anyway.....

“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.
