“Excellent Service but food just above average!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Service was excellent & kids friendly. The manager & staffs was so friendly & lovely to the kids. We don't have to wait long for our food & will go back again..

I am Thai & confirm this restaurant is do have a authentic thai quality do try if you live local..

However, the taste is just above average for me... It more like an aussie & thai taste not a real 'thai'. I do ask to make it spicy for me... I love spicy food. It still really missing a strong Thai favour. We had TomYum Soup and is just really missing that tangy test, satay chicken was just average & the beef salad wasn't good either. It's more like an authentic stree food that you would get in bangkok but not the 'restaurant' level where Thai people would line up for it. Sorry..

Tips: by far the best Thai in Perth we found is SaoWaNee Thai in north Perth, the chef was from well know restaurant in Puket & been voted best restaurant in Perth several times (everything we try there never been dispointed, my favorite is TomYum & PaPaYa Salad and Satay chicken and beef was so good too) however the deco is a bit dated but real good food!! Or Lanna Thai in Subi is pretty good too!!

“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

We have been to Unique Thai quite a few times now and just love it. The food is always fresh and delicious. We try to choose something different from the Menu each time we go as they have so much to choose from. Our favourites are the Cashew Nut Chicken, the Panang Chicken Curry and Thai Red Curry. Last night we had the Squid and it was so tasty it may become our new favourite!

Larry, the Manager is always so friendly. He goes out of his way to talk to the customers and makes everyone feel so welcome. The staff are very efficient and friendly and we never have to wait too long for our meals. It is so convenient having the bottle shop right next door as the restaurant is BYO. It has always been busy when we've been there so strongly suggest booking a table.

We love Unique Thai so much we'll keep coming back again and again and highly recommend it to our family and friends.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Always great food and good size portions . Staff are hard working and kept up although looked a bit understaffed on the night we dined. Overall a good place for take away or dining in. Best in the surrounding area.

“Excellent Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We have been to Unique Thai a number of times and this time we went with a group of 10 friends for dinner.

We arrived (bit by bit) and were shown to our table at the back of the restaurant. We were not rushed at any time for our orders. The staff were really nice.

The menu has a great selection to chose from and I for one had trouble choosing as they all looked so nice. I finally settled on a Thai Chicken curry with coconut milk. When it arrived it was divine and with the rice it was served wit I was really able to enjoy the great flavours.

The bill was good and even including entry, main and desert it was only $28 per head - great value.

All in all a great evening. Thank you to the staff and the restaurant.

“Best Thai North of Carine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Unique Thai has the best authentic Thai North of Warwick Rd. We go there approx once a month and have done so for now about 12 months. The food has always been fresh, tasty and delivered hot to the table. We went again last night as a family of 4 and had some tasty entrees an 4 mains, all were very tasty. the table service was also very prompt. Unique Thai has a good following therefore be sure to book as it is almost full by 7pm even on a Wednesday night. Please note, this is not your regular cheap Thai meal, it is a little pricey but the quality of the food, good service and nice surrounding is worth paying that little bit more for. For a family of 4 we had 2 entrees, 4 mains and rice which came to $98.
