We were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed this place. The tables were beautifully set. All our dishes were good, but the cashew chicken was probably our favorite. We’ll definitely be back and will want that delicious coconut rice again! It’s BYOB, with a bottle shop next door.
Relaxed ambience, friendly service, good simple Thai food. It's BYO but bottle shop next door. Very convenient!
Not many Thai or Vietnamese restaurants are good enough to be able to open two branches in the same city, but Ocean Spice Cafe in Perth has done just that. This one is wonderfully located on Eric Street in Cottesloe, and if we do say so ourselves, it’s the perfect spot for casual dining, whether with friends, family or for a little bit of the old romance. The restaurant itself is no frills, tastefully decorated with wicker chairs, a cool tiled floor and simple tablecloths. There’s the option to sit out front if you feel like catching some sea breeze but, regardless of where you’re sat, you can count on the service being attentive, warm and welcoming.
To give you an idea of the menu at Cottesloe’s Ocean Spice Cafe, the focus is as we said on fresh Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. Consider a Penang seafood curry, a beef massaman or a prawn red curry. All are authentic and blended to perfection. There’s also grilled fish of the day, plenty of fresh, often curious stir-fries, then the wonderful chef’s specials. To choose any in particular as standout is a sin, but you can expect, coconut prawns, roast duck and choo chee salmon. Ocean Spice Cafe may be new, but Perth is soon going to love it.
