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.
