Good mid week meal

We were here in January 2016 and had a scrumptious meal. We ordered several dishes and all were delicious, especially the Royal Thai egg nest parcels of spices prawn and pork and the purple flower exotic Thai spiced chicken dumplings. The purple flower exotic dumplings were a work of art in themselves, intricately and delicately sculptured into exotic flower shapes.

Itsara serves Thai food but not as you would normally expect. The flavours are definitely Thai but more subtle than usual and the meals are prepared and presented with finesse and style. Exceptional food and good service.

5 of us enjoyed a wonderful meal here last night. Sat in the fantastic courtyard and the ambience was perfect. Our hostess was knowledgeable and we took her suggestion that we have the special 'surprise' pick on the menu. We were very happy to go along with this as the five of us had perused the menu and just couldn't... More

As a party of 3 looking for somewhere to eat after a movie at the local cinema, we arrived at Itsara at 9pm. The sandwich board outside said 'open' and the window information advertises that they are open until 11pm...but they said they wouldn't seat us as the kitchen 'didn't want to cook any more'. An interesting attitude! We took... More

I'm sorry you couldn't get in to dine with us. If you had made a booking or called to say you'd be coming down after the movie we would of been ready. Some days when our evening has been quieter later on and everyone has turned up early we let our staff go, otherwise we're paying them to wait on... More

Best authentic Thai we've eaten either in Australia or Thailand! From the ambience to the service and attentiveness of staff to the quality flavours and food presentation - it was a sensational dining experience. Restaurant is close to Uni of WA. BYO wine and licensed. Beautiful outdoor/patio, plant lined seating creates tropical calming ambience. Indoor seating also available. We chose... More

Had a fantastic dinner here last Saturday night. The entire menu is gluten free so that put us in a happy place and then ALL the dishes were great. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant for GF free dining.

Itsara always satisfies. Fresh local ingredients are used, many he grows himself. I love sitting in the beautiful garden outside. The food is better than I have had anywhere. I recommend the 'Let us please you' menu option - it is the best of the best.

This restaurant is a cut above your average Thai establishment. A limited menu but all dishes exhibit the exquisite range of flavours in every dish. Venue is lovely especially out the back on a warm Perth evening. Service is good. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.

Overpriced and not that great Arrogant manager and staff who are very obliging but really struggling with English also they took a bottle of wine from me as they were fully licensed and forgot to give it back as we left. It all looks very pretty but the flavours were lacking I was disappointed
