Thai food is easy to find in Australia, and while there are more Thai restaurants in Perth than we could care to mention, but it is also true that not all Thai joints were created equal. If you’re looking for the very top end of Thai in Perth, then you need to be going to Six Senses Gourmet Thai, where they serve up exemplary samples of the very best that Thailand has to offer, with a level of dedication to details and superb ingredients that goes above and beyond the standard fare. Their outlet on Oxford Street in Leederville – perfectly positioned for a pre or post match meal at Domain Stadium and easily accessed via Subiaco station – is a great place to pick up a Thai treat in Perth, so book a table now and make a move over to try the very best that Six Senses Gourmet Thai has to give.
While Six Senses Gourmet Thai might imply that six is the magic number, when you’re talking about Thai food, then you need to think about the four elements rather that excite those six senses. There are four elements of Thai cuisine that must come together to make the perfect dish, and at Six Senses Gourmet Thai on Oxford Street in Leederville, Perth, they have them all down to a tee. Saltiness, from fish sauce and oyster sauce, must be levelled off with spice, found through liberal use of green and red chillies, especially the fearsome bird’s eye. Equally, sourness taken from tamarind and citrus fruits such as lime and lemons is balanced by sweetness, a product of palm sugar. When all these flavour profiles are in order and in equilibrium, you’re onto a winner.
Six Senses Gourmet Thai have the chefs that can perform this juggling act to perfection, and some of the dishes that they serve up to public of Perth are superlative examples of this. Their starters, such as stuffed betel leaf and tom yum prawn soup, show off the spice palate, and their stir-fries show the delicate notes required, particularly in the chilli basil noodle or the Aqua salmon salad, with red onion, mint, green apple and a chilli and lime dressing. Six Senses is the place to go for a top quality Thai restaurant in Leederville, especially if you’re going to a West Coast Eagles or Fremantle Football Club game at Domain Stadium. Do remember to book a table, however, as they do get busy on occasion, especially on the days of big AFL games.
The food was delicious - we went for mothers day and we all had a good time. The service was good and they treated the children well.
We enjoyed our family lunch. Lovely setting, good service & great food. Kid friendly. Will come again especially for the yummy coconut prawns and scallops.
Service was great, and all the food we ordered was amazing! Such a beautiful fit out and the ambience is perfect for any occasion. Thank you!
Awesome vibe, great setting. BYO alcohol is a bonus as you can spend more on food. Service is great and the food is superb. Recommended.
We arrived at Six Senses for my partners birthday and after initially requesting a quiet table towards the back, we were seated in the hussel and bustle toward the front where the bifold doors were open and freezing wind was blowing in. We waited 20mins before being asked for anything and when we asked for a peach ice tea and an old fashioned we were told that they had no peach tea and could we go to the bar to request a drink as she didn't understand what he wanted. Before we could order our food, she rushed off. My partner went to the bar and had to explain to their bar staff what an old fashioned was and they said they couldn't do it. He ended up ordered a Glenfiddich 15 on the rocks. We had to wait another 10mins before someone came back with the drinks which when I took a sip of the lemon iced tea, it was in fact peach to which they said they didn't have. Entrees came out and they were amazing! The curry puffs and satay chicken sticks were yummo! We then had to wait another 40mins before mains. The pad Thai was a bit bland but the beef chilli basil stirfry was delicious. We go to the counter to pay for the bill. Remember that scotch my partner ordered? They charged us $20 for a single shot! You can buy the bottle for $115 at Dan Murphy's. We questioned it and they confirmed the price. We have bought the same drink from whiskey specialising bars in the city and never been charged that much for it. Their cocktails were cheaper. Overall, good food but below average service in general. We probably won't return.
Four of us dined here last night. The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere. We sat near the front windows opening on to Oxford st, and it was such a beautiful night and there were lots of people out and about in Leederville. We shared two entrees between the four of us and had four mains with steamed rice. The food was delicious! My husband said the Massaman curry was the best he had eaten! My daughter's favourite is the Green Chicken curry and this was also really good. We also had a Pork Belly stir fry and of course - a Pad Thai! The servings were generous and no-one was left feeling hungry. I would certainly go back again!
We went to Six Senses on a Saturday for lunch. There was a big street market event happening at the time so it was not as full as it usually is, great for us. As usual the food was fantastic, we took advantage of the lunch stir-fry and curry menu and none of us were disappointed. The food was fresh, tasty and well presented. I went for the spicy option and it was a little hotter than I expected so be cautious of this (you have the option of requesting non-spicy so go this route if heat is not your thing). We are regulars at this venue and will definitely return. Our guests are looking to see if there is a similar franchise in Sydney as they were very impressed.
The food and drinks was amazing, definitely true to thai food taste and satisfied our cravings! Very happy with the serving sizes as well. A great place for casual catch ups and even a date night out. The interior ambience and atmosphere was lovely. The lighting and interior decoration really complemented one another. We were served by a really friendly Thai waitress which made it a difference. However, we had some trouble with one of the waitress there, she wasn't too friendly serving us and it caused a miscommunication paying for our bill. Otherwise, Six Senses would have received a full 6/6 rating. Highly recommend!
Lovely tasting food. Good Pad Thai which is our taste test for Thai restaurants. Panang duck curry was really lovely with a rich sauce and plenty of veggies including thin segments of pumpkin which were a delightful touch. Starters were scallopson a spoon, and a tiny raw salmon salad on a spoon with delicious sauce. All in all a really nice lunch. The table of four next to us had their dishes delivered at 5-10 min intervals, and since they weren't sharing, it would have ruined their experience I'd say. Also the wait time was a little long for delivery of mains.
The food is amazing, flavours and presentation are outstanding can not fault it.... however we order 6 dishes with 3 servings of rice. The rice came out first followed 15 minutes by the mains which 2 were cold. By the time we were ready to eat the rice had gone cold. The last main didn’t arrive until the rest of us had almost finished eating. They did however offer us 20% discount on the meals that came out cold. Overall I would not let this stop us from coming again as the food is amazing. Just needs a little work on timing and this would have been a 10 out of 10.
