Craving good Thai food in Perth then look no further.
Get ready to feel the burn with this great list of some of Perth’s best Thai restaurants.
From local hidden wonders to popular joints in the eating hot spots, your tastebuds will be dancing as you treat yourself to spiced, fragrant and truly divine Thia plates.
Kicking off our list of Perth’s best Thai food joints is Northbridge’s Louder Louder with it’s flavours and food on offer shouting pure deliciousness.
When we close our eyes, their unctuous and oh so sexy Massaman beef rib curry is all we see and it makes us shiver with happiness. The meat slides off the bone, and it is generous, rich and so comforting it’s like a hug. If you only eat one thing here, make it this (but also don’t be silly and try others too). Oh but for that separate stomach we all have, don’t forget to try one of their traditional but modern Thai desserts too.
There’s some kind of magic happening at Mount Hawthorn’s Galangal.
They take beautiful ingredients and treat them with respect to produce delightful plate after plate. There’s a lot to mull over when choosing your meal, but here’s the ones we think are not to be missed… First up, their award-winning twice cooked pork belly which has caramelised fish sauce and palm sugar. Munch, crunch and thank us later. Then there’s their roast duck red curry which the meat is roasted in house and is elevated with the addition of lychee and cherry tomatoes.
Very, very good stuff.
This one was an obvious choice to make the list of ‘Best Thai Food in Perth’.
Famed Chef David Thompson’s Long Chim in Perth CBD’s State Buildings opened amongst great fanfare, and since then it’s showed no signs of slowing down.
Perfect for a special occasion as well as business lunches or catch ups with friends, there’s a real vibe here that hits you when you enter. Beautifully decked out, the food is just as impressive with Chang Mai larb that will have smoke coming out of your ears, addictive chicken wings in dark soy and charred noodles that taste so smoky they transport you straight to Thailand markets.
Wash these down with one of their fabulous cocktails which hit the spot every time.
Dusit Dheva by the Sea
Seaside dining where you can taste the salt in the food and the air?
Dusit Dheva by the Sea has you covered at Sorrento Quay. With signature dishes like galloping horses (minced duck and cashew on fresh pineapple), Thai beef salad and grilled Tasmanian salmon in a creamy red curry sauce, there’s something for everyone on this menu. It aims to please, and it does just that!
Sue’s Thai Kitchen
If you drove by Sue’s Thai Kitchen and completely missed it, you wouldn’t be alone, but you’d live to regret it.
Woodland’s secret Thai oasis is actually very special, with curries that are so super charged with layered flavour that your socks get blown off with each bite. Whether it’s a green, yellow or red curry that has your name on it, once you try this place it’s impossible to get it off your mind. Humble, quaint and so, so tasty.
Baan Baan Home Food
From the team behind Bangkok Jump Street, Baan Baan Home Food can be found in Perth (on the cusp of Northbridge) on Newcastle Street and is the kind of food you’ll be craving any day of the week.
It has a really authentic flavour approach and yet still feels modern and fresh. With dishes like sticky bbq pork cheek with tamarind (umm yum!), Northern style beef rib curry with ginger and pickled garlic, and a crab omelette to rival all others, this is a place you have to add to your dining list stat.
Mae Khong Thai
Who doesn’t love a neighbour gem?
And a Thai one at that! Bedford’s Mae Khong Thai is family owned and run, and has a focus on using fresh, local ingredients.
It rises above many others thanks to their fusion of Thai flavours with traditional home style cooking, making it truly comforting to dine on. Blow your lid with their spicy larb salads, or keep things decadent with a thick coconut curry featuring your choice of protein. If it’s cold outside, this is sure to keep you warm.
It has a bit of a retro vibe when you enter North Perth’s Saowanee’s Place, and the charm extends all the way into the menu too.
Designed to please with heavy hitting and familiar Thai flavours such as fiery chilli, tart green papaya and creamy coconut milk. It’s no surprise that this is one of Perth’s long-standing Thai favourites, and beyond delicious dishes to eat, the service is warm and welcoming. Order some of their crowd-pleasing curries, their stir fries, and some pad Thai, then feast away communally.
After all, sharing is caring!
