Perth is the part of Australia nearest to Asia – it’s closer to Jakarta than to Sydney or Brisbane – and while it might be a little further on Bangkok than to Indonesia, those who with to try a little Thai in Western Australia would do well to head to James Street in Northbridge and Thailicious. They offer an introduction to the tastes of Thailand from their city centre location, close to both Perth Arena and Perth Central Train Station, so take a trip into Thailicious for a feed to remember in the Western Australian capital.
There are plenty of Thai restaurants in Perth, but few of them can compete with Thailicious on James Street in Northbridge. The finer points of Thai cuisine are not easy to get right, for sure. Spice, drawn from chillies, must be balanced with sweetness, derived from liberal use of palm sugar, sourness, a product by a combination of lime, lemon and tamarind and salt, from oyster and fish sauce must all be balanced, and only the most skillful chefs can manage it. They have such chefs at Thailicious, so let us talk you through some of the delicacies which they rustle up.
A great Thai meal begins with soup, and at Thailicious, they have the Tom Yum and Tom Kha options, as well as their own house broth, served clear and with soft tofu. The starters include all the favourites, and the mains are similarly crowd-pleasing. Thailicious have all the classic curries – green, red, panang and massaman – as well as a red roasted duck option, and the seafood selection is a house signature, whether that be their Phuket Fantasia – seafood, prawns, fish fillets, squid and New Zealand mussels – or their crispy soft shell crab. Head on over to Thailicious on James Street in Northbridge and booked table to enjoy some of the best Thai food in Perth.
Beautiful food, with cheaper alternatives from set menu if a smaller meal is acceptable, very good pricing. Service good, if a little patchy. Super-friendly cashier, who phoned me later regarding an important item found, that one of our party had lost.
Had a 50th Birthday celebration at Thailicious. Fabulous food gd ambience n service friendly n helpful staff. Nothing bad I can say..will definitely visit again.
Had dinner last night and it was delicious. Service was excellent and friendly smiley people. We will be back. Really enjoyed ourselves - very refreshing!
The food was some of the best Thai food I have had in a long long time (easily one of the best in Perth. Would highly recommend to couples, families or even solo alike.
Found both the service and the food great. We were given a choice of how spicy we wanted our food and enjoyed all the dishes we had. The restaurant was full and I will certainly return here.
Friendly efficient service, tasty food with a good range for vegetarians. They have set meals which include a small portion of curry and rice are perfect for one person or go for the bigger dishes and share for the whole table.
I loved the friendly efficient service, the fact that drinks were presented well, water came promptly when it was asked for, and there was delicious authentic food at very reasonable cost
Staff were friendly and attentive, prices were good and convenient that it was BYO. The food was nice but I won't be rushing back - I've had much nicer Thai food. I booked for a group of 6 going on reviews and was a bit disappointed.
Great casual restaurant for a pre-Fringe meal. Good menu to choose from and reasonable drink options. Tables outside not well balanced - they need to invest in some wedges as nearly wore my dinner!
You can taste an absolutely authentic Thai cuisine and dine under an atmosphere that is full of Thai culture here. The food was delicious and the staffs are amiable to the customers.
