Top choice thai in Perth

Australian chef David Thompson is renowned for respecting the authentic flavours of Thai street food, and with dishes like a fiery chicken laap (warm salad with fresh herbs) and roast curry of red duck, there's definitely no dialling back on the flavour for Western palates. The prawns with toasted coconut and betel leaves may well be the planet's finest appetiser.

Asian-inspired cocktails, refreshing craft beer and informed international waitstaff all complement a cosmopolitan basement location.
