Thai food @ Corner Cafe, Perth CBD, Western Australia

During our trip to Perth, we stayed a couple of night at Perth CBD's Criterion Hotel which was one of the oldest hotel establishment in the city. Since we did not have a car and had to rely on public transportation, we chose to stay exactly at downtown. After a day trip to Fremantle, we were quite exhausted by the time we got back to the hotel. After resting for a bit, we headed out for a late night dinner. Nothing much in downtown as it was a weekday, so we decided to have Asian food at Corner Cafe which was just a few shops away from our hotel. What is nice is that they open till late and also offer outdoor seating. We sat outside as the weather was not too chilly and road was quite peaceful. 
Outdoor seating late night:)
We had Thai seafood tom yum, Pad Thai and Thai fried rice. We were hungry by then and was so sure we could finish everything ( just normal amount for two right ??). Food was served pretty quick since they were hardly any patrons by then. First up was the tom yum soup. It was quite a disappointment as the soup was not pipping hot and…it had bamboo shoots ( something I despise soo much because it over-dominates the taste of the food @__@). However, seafood was generous and fresh so no complains on that :)
Thai Curry
Our main meal was the Pad Thai and fried rice. I had the Pad Thai and it was pretty good with generous portion of seafood. Loved it so much but the portion was soo huge ( for Malaysian standard, yeah, its pretty huge) and since it was already late, my tummy just didn't want to accept more than half of the plate. Panda had the fried rice which smelled so good when it was served. The portion was huge as well and with generous amount of seafood. We had a bit of both and we thought they were pretty tasty; if only we had asked them to make it more spice. We ended up having to packed the unfinished meal and brought them back to our rooms.

Overall, food was acceptable; not the best Thai meal I have but considering the combination of late night, outdoor seating, Perth CBD and price, I thought it was pretty good. The place is really convenient for those who are staying at CBD especially at Criterion.

  1. I love a good spot of spicy food when I'm doing the late shift at my storage facility in Perth. So thanks for this recommendation. Looks like I'll have somewhere else to go to get my fix!
