Everything is too salty Will not go back Bad experience
We ordered a veg and tofu green curry and a red curry. They were both very tasty and fresh. Service was excellent and would definitely return. Convenient location for visiting the Fringe Festival too.
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.
