Ploy Thai restaurant in Maylands, my all time favourite Perth Thai restaurant


Post update 11/6/18: 7 years later and Ploy Thai is still my favourite Thai restaurant in Maylands. For a Perth restaurant to stay consistently good for this long says a lot about the quality, value and service of this Thai restaurant. Ploy Thai’s menu hasn’t changed and that suits me just fine as I love everything on it.


What I love about Ploy Thai is the traditional Thai ambience you experience, the staff are friendly and the décor is beautiful and every time I go there it takes me back to my holiday to Phuket with my close friends Caviar Girl & Mia years ago.

Does Ploy Thai take bookings?

Yes Ploy Thai is a small restaurant and can seat a max of 20 or so people, so it’s always best to book as there have been many times where we wing it without a booking to find that it’s been fully booked. I always find it hard to find an alternative option when I’m hungry and have my stomach set on a specific restaurant / cuisine.

What we usually have on Ploy Thai’s menu

To start we shared the vegetable spring rolls served with sweet chilli sauce. As you can see below Ploy Thai’s spring rolls aren’t your usual sized spring rolls…I love good portions!

For the mains burger boy and I shared our usual masaman beef curry…

The masaman sauce was sweet and creamy just the way we like it. Potatoes were nice and the sliced beef was tender enough. I usually cook my masaman beef using the casserole beef chunk cut which is more tender than Ploy Thai’s masaman beef but the sauce is what I love about this dish. Mine is pretty close but not exactly the same 🙂 (note – the masaman beef is my signature dish).

We felt a bit adventurous tonight so rather than picking the chicken green curry as our second main we decided to go for the Pad Ka Pow Seafood which is a combination of seafood stir-fried with fresh chilli, onions, shallots, basil and Thai sauce.

burger boy enjoyed this dish but I’m pretty boring and would have been happy with my green chicken curry or the cashew chicken stir fry which we’ve had before.  The prawns & mussels were fresh and a good size. The squid was cooked well and not chewy and I loved the broccoli in the Thai sauce…I don’t normally eat a lot of broccoli despite it being one of my favourite vegetables (broccoli is one of two vegetables burger boy refuses to eat).

The fried rice is always a nice at Ploy Thai and compliments our mains well…

The Verdict

For $56, burger boy & I left very satisfied and wondering why it had been so long since our last visit. Ploy Thai delivers to Maylands and surrounds …would be so awesome if they delivered to our home! I’d be having it every second week.
