The rumors were right about this place. Food was superb (I'd say authentic but I'm no judge of that so let's go with superb). The restaurant itself is also quite amazing. If you book far enough in advance, ask for a table outside in the courtyard garden. It's like eating in the greenhouse of a botanical garden - green walls,... More

A short notice booking meant we arrived to a packed restaurant, but the food and service were excellent. The owner even made time to check with us that all was to our satisfaction. This is such a convenient spot with plenty of parking out the back of Stirling Hwy. It will be an absolute must do on my next visit... More

Atmosphere is excellent, surrounded by palms, ferns and orchids. Had a banquet style meal for 16, good quick service, food was hot and more than adequate, wine selection was very good. One member had allergy problems with some of the menu selections. Kitchen staff prepared a special individual meal for her. Will return soon for lunch.

There is a nice orchid and other garden out the back which you need to ask to sit in when you book not when you arrive. The food was of good quality with some interesting unique dishes that you will not find elsewhere. Portion sizes are small but very well presented. Price is very high compared to other high end...

Revisited last evening after some time away. This is probably the best THAI restaurant in Perth & one of the best in Australia. The owners,Front of house & chef really know their stuff. It is worth going online before a visit to analyse the menu & decide what you would like to eat. Wine list is adequate but it is... More

Poor attitude from manager, food is great. For me it's a deal breaker, which is a shame. I'm sure your mileage will vary.

I've been to this restaurant several times. The food is consistently good. I especially like the banquet...the chef chooses the menu on the day so is different every time. At only $55/person it is excellent value! In warm weather, sitting outside in the courtyard is a real treat...definitely transports you to Thailand with its lush greenery and orchids. Don't miss...

We have visited before and every time enjoy the experience and the quality of the food. The garden at the back looks very appealing and we would book there in future. Food is authentic, great atmosphere and environment, good and fresh describes the food. All the best from Thailand are there and it served hot and speedily. Parking is very... More

If you are from Europe traveling in Australia and want a taste of Thai nothing better than a visit to this place in Perth. We appreciated a variety of starters and main courses with fish, meat (special award to the duck) and spicy vegetables. All was good or interesting for us. For sure different from the Thai food you can... More

Fine restaurant serving delicious well presented Thai food. The restaurant has a nice ambience with friendly helpful staff. The menu covers the usual Thai cooking styles plus a few that were new to us. The service was excellent and the food was as well. Recommended.
