Perth does Asian food well, and that's about it. That sai, Itsara is the best Asian in Perth, and I would say one of the best restaurants in the country. Certainly Michelin 2 star level without the pompous BS - which boosts it even higher in my opinion. There are a lot of bad and overpriced restaurants in Perth, but Itsara certainly isn't one of them. The value is there as well.

I have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. The food is freshly cooked to order and many of the herbs and vegetables used for the spice pastes are home grown.

Try the delicious duck curry, or my other favourite, the beef fillet with cherry tomatoes and potatoes. Ask for a spoon to get up all the tasty gravy - you won't want to waste a scrap!

All dietary requirements are accommodated where possible. The maitre d' will ask whether you require any curry or other dish prepared gluten-free.

Itsara is a seriously good restaurant, and certainly the best Thai in Perth.

only open for dinner, this a very well run restaurant with positive hands on influence by the owners. Nicely laid out in front shop section plus a lovely covered garden courtyard. You are warmly greeted and looked after with excellent service. Would recommend booking as very popular. We shared starters and were all hugely impressed with our prwan and scallop dish. Mains offer a wide selection of curries and a variety of seafood dishes. The best aspect is dishes will be cooked to your preferred level of spicy and this was done with perfection. No complaints and would very happily make this my local if I lived in Perth.

A hidden treasure. What an exquisite feast of flavours. The herbs are organic and home grown.
You could drive along Stirling highway and you could easily miss it. Excellent service and flavours and the closest I have found in Perth that represents Authentic Thai Cuisine.

This is a unique restaurant experience, with the genius of a PhD behind the cuisine in combination with an engineer to organize the production. While the service can be variable at times, the food surpasses, and continues to surpass expectations. Excellent value for money, this restaurant rescues Perth's reputation for modestly priced original cuisine with superb taste.
