I used to go to Dusit Dheva in James Street fairly regularly and was interested to visit the new kid in town at Hillarys to see if the quality and authenticity was the same. The restaurant is near the Breakwater Tavern on Sorrento Quays boardwalk, there is plenty of parking around.
We have now been back a second time and found the quality of ingredients, choice and service to be excellent. We found plenty on the menu to suit our pescatarian/vegetarian diets, and the flavours are so good, it’s hard not to be delighted.
The first time we visited we tried one of the signature dishes of soft shell crab and watermelon. What an absolute star of a dish, crunchy crab, refreshing watermelon and a lovely umami background flavour.
We followed this with a vegetable green curry, which had a great depth of flavour and a really authentic flavour enhanced by thai basil.
The third plate was prawn pad thai – again authentic, tasty, plump and plentiful prawns – we loved it.
Here are some similar but different pictures from our second visit:
Prawn and pineapple curry – amazingly good – this inspired me to make my own at home:

We really love this place for Thai food – it is in a great location, the guys serving are friendly and helpful, and you will leave here very satisfied. Premises are licensed, however you can BYO wine for a corkage fee.
