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, I had Satay Roast Duck and the flavour was spot on. The waitresses and waiters were friendly and helpful. A restaurant that I will certainly go back to.
In the heart of Leederville with a beautiful setting this restaurant serves delicious Modern Thai food. Staff are all friendly and service is great. Highly recommended.
Great food and atmosphere. Very fusion type twist on the Thai food that I am used to having. We had a mini meeting whilst having dinner as well and the staff were accomodating.
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 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.
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.
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.
Beautiful food and great service. The only thing I didn’t like was where we were sitting. We were near the front of the building and the large windows were open. It was very cold and when I asked if it was possible to close them, the girl told me she couldn’t. I asked if we could sit towards the back of the restaurant and they were very happy to move us to a new seat. The food was AMAZING as always and very affordable. Will definitely return!
On Saturday 28th we ordered my usual Phad Thai, which is the best there. we also ordered the Deep-Fried Barranundi with Chilli Sweet sauce. it was so crispy, and tasty and we did not leave much on the plate after eating. I work in Leederville and our staff often eat at Six Sense and will be continuing to do so in 2017. A Very enjoyable meal Thank You.
Food was absolutely amazing...once it arrived. It took a long time for anyone to take our order and then a long time for the food to come out. When the food did start coming out all of the meals weren't ready at the same time. As a table of 3, two of us we're sitting with meals in front of us letting it go cold as we waited for the third meal to come (I find it very rude to start eating when not everyone has their meals). Once we all had our meals I have to say they were delicious!
