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.
Firstly a lovely atmosphere. The waiters were very friendly. The food we ordered arrived very quickly and was nicely presented and delicious. The food is reasonably priced.
Great food and atmosphere. The fried barramundi with fish sauce was amazing. I only wish the cocktails were cheaper, and more dessert options were available.
good atmosphere.overall not bad , food was a bit sweet not very authentic taste , but understandable that the taste need to suit the westerner
The staff were efficient and the food was fantastic. I would highly recommend this restaurant especially the barramundi it was very nicely presented and tasted fantastic.
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.
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!
We enjoyed our lunch. The restaurant is a tasty addition to the diverse range of restaurants in Oxford Street; one of the most energetic streets in Perth. The menu at Six Senses had a good range of options and the opportunity to construct your own dishes was popular with our group. The food was tasty and well presented and the staff attentive and friendly. The "bring your own wine" option is appreciated.
