Stylish and tasty. Those are probably the best two words to describe Perth’s Pinto Thai Restaurant. Or you could use contemporary and comfortable. Or you could use authentic and welcoming. Or… Wait, we’ll stop now. Pinto Thai Restaurant is set on Moresby Street in Kensington, and it’s Thai food done right. The restaurant is only small, and wildly popular, so booking ahead is a must. When you do snag a table, however, expert to be served with food that is zingy, fresh absolutely full of flavour – how any Thai, or indeed any Asian restaurant should be. Oh, and the service comes with a smile, so that’s good as well.
A stone’s throw from Moresby Hall in Kensington and just across the road from the Moresby Reserve, Pinto Thai Restaurant sits pretty with a kitchen full of fresh ingredients, ready to cook up some of the best Thai cuisine you’ll find anywhere in Perth. Yes, we know, we know, Perth isn’t exactly short of places to eat Thai food, but at Pinto it’s practically perfect. It’s a restaurant by Sixth Sense, another popular restaurant in Australia, meaning the team here are no novices and they know how to handle a wok. The interior of the Moresby Street location is sleek, contemporary and makes for rather a pleasant place to sit. Goodness, it’s all very exciting, and we haven’t even got to the menu yet.
Thai food is all about zing, and here in Kensington that’s exactly what Pinto Thai Restaurant is serving up. Begin with some Thai fish cakes or some hearty duck rolls, then consider moving onto a vibrant papaya salad, some pad thai (the national dish of Thailand), or a coconutty Panang curry. In truth, however, the Pinto signatures are where you need to be looking. The fried baby barramundi with garlic is a dream, while the soft shell crab with crispy fried basil is sure to awaken your senses. We could go on all day, but better you go and try Kensington’s Pinto Thai Restaurant for yourself. Reserve a table now.
