Maybe closed?

I went to the markets today and there was a new shop where their stall used to be. The new stallholder told me that they had closed down. I don't know if this is permanent or just for the holidays, but they're no longer listed on the freemantlemarkets.com.au website either. Strange since the last review was just 5 days ago!

Great Cheap vegan food

4 Posted on 12 / 31 / 2013

This stall in the Fremantle markets sells authentic, full of flavour dishes that are inexpensive and definitely worth trying. When you ask for medium spiciness you got very very hot, so if you can't handle spicy, definitely go for the mild!

Pros: Cheap, Delicious
Cons: No space, Crowded

Great for tasty vegan food on the go

A little vegan gem in Fremantle market. Tasty, cheap, plentiful. If you ask for your meal to be "extra spicy" make sure you REALLY mean it, those girls are very liberal with their chilli if requested. Highly recommended.

Pros: Tasty, Cheap, Fresh
Cons: Limited seating

Delicious hot food and salads

5 Posted on 01 / 03 / 2013

This place is really just a stall in the Freo markets, but they produce some of the best Thai food you could get outside of Thailand.

What's so awesome about this place is that they not only do your typical dishes that you find in Thai restaurants in Australia (e.g. Pad Thai, various curries, and snacks etc, but they also do amazingly tasty Thai salads.

It can be a bit hard to find a place to sit down (especially if there's more than 2 people in your party), as the great food means they are really busy, and there is quite limited seating to begin with. However, that kind of gives it a real "street food" feel.

Pros: Delicious food, Fresh salad options, Inexpensive
Cons: Limited seating

tasty snacks

4 Posted on 12 / 03 / 2012

Ate here several times, snacks were great, skewer things and curry puffs. I especially liked the sweet potato thing but they only had it one day. Really flavoursome. Pad Thai good too. Didn't try desserts

Pros: tasty, cheap, varied

Five Spice Rolls

2 Posted on 06 / 25 / 2012

I have only eaten a snack here once, stuffed tofu on a stick. Right alongside these were "Five Spice Rolls", I don't know if they are aware of this but this product is not Vegan as it contains Whey Protein (from milk). I believe that if you advertise your business as Vegan you should be quite careful about the contents of the products you sell. Otherwise people will question the level of care you put into the rest of your food and if it is in fact Vegan.


Cons: Selling non vegan product

Yes!!!

Really GOOD thai food! I particularly enjoyed the mini spring rolls, rice balls, and fresh rolls. The phad thai wasn't so great. I ate here for almost every meal when I was in Fremantle :)

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly staff, Excellent value
Cons: Not much space to sit

Beautiful Authentic Thai Food

5 Posted on 05 / 15 / 2010

As most Thai restaurants in Perth are so heavily based on gluggy green curries or fried pad thai, it is fantastic to find a Thai 'cafe' that is not only entirely vegan, but also how the food should taste - that is fresh, full of salad, sour, spicy and pungent.
The green paw-paw salad is out of this world, and proof that you don't need fish sauce to make this dish work. The larb (soy mince salad) is almost as pungent, fresh and interesting. Their rice paper rolls are some of the best I've eaten and their deep fried nori crackers are one of the most moreish guilty pleasures I've ever had.
On some days they make a vegan lasagna that tastes identical and even better to its meaty cousin. Compared to their other dishes it doesn't win out on the health stakes but is a great 'let you hair down' dish. I haven't tried their deserts yet but they look sensational.
Located inside the Fremantle markets, the surrounds certainly have vibrancy and character but little in the way of ambience and serenity, the seating is limited as well, making this place more of a take away venue that an intense dining experience which can be a bit of a shame. However at lunch time it is usually swarming with Thai and neighboring tourists who look so relieved to have found some genuine Thai food in Perth. This gives the place extra brownie points in authenticity but can be very easy to get lost in a chaotic que curing the thick of lunch.
Warning - many of their dishes are VERY spicy. They will ask you if you want 'asian spicy' or 'aussie spicy' - but I haven't noticed much difference between the two so if very hot is not your thing, probably better to ask for 'mild.'

Pros: fresh, healthy, beautiful food, friendly staff, Paw paw salad!
Cons: Some menu items no english translation, limited seating, can be overly spicy for western palettes
