I have walked past this restaurant on numerous occasions but I have never been in. When I arrived, HS and LD were already sitting there waiting because I got called back to work before dinner, boo! Well I guess the good thing was that there was already a bottle of water on the table and an ice bucket with the wine sitting inside ready to go.
As usual, we get carried away chatting and was prompted a few times from the waitress before we actually looked at the menu.
Betel Leaf (3 pcs) (A traditional Thai snack. Betel leaf filled with prawn, Thai herbs and the chef's special sauce. Try to eat it in one mouthful) $11.50
Gang Phed Ped Yang (A rich red curry of roasted duck with lychee, pineapple, cherry tomatoes and vegetables) $28.50
Spicy Crispy Basil with Soft Shell Crab (Deep fried soft shell crab topped with special homemade chilli sauce, pineapple, tomato, onion, cucumber and crisp basil leaves) $28.50
Chilli Basil Noodle with Crispy Pork Belly (Spicy and aromatic, stir-fried thick flat rice noodles with fresh chilli, egg and sweet basil) $24.50
Steamed Jasmine Rice x 2 $6 ($3 each)
Mochi Ice Cream ?$
Food and presentation - 3.5/5
The food at Six Senses Thai Restaurant was nice but could be better considering the prices they are charging. The betel leaf was pretty tasty but I think they were a little heavy handed with the fish sauce.

The waitresses were friendly and they did come over and ask us a few times whether we were ready to order. Six Senses is one of the few Asian restaurants where the menu wasn't filled with spelling and grammatical errors which was refreshing. Our food came out relatively quickly and there were no hiccups along the way. I would've given them a higher mark, had the waitress that took our dessert order not been so abrupt and pulled a face, maybe I'm being petty but hey.
Atmosphere and decor - 4/5
I really liked the decor at Six Senses Thai Restaurant and there was certainly a buzz. It was comfortable and nice and intimate. However, I definitely took marks off for the bathroom which was out the back in the rear carpark and needed some work to make it acceptable.
Value for money - 3.5/5
Don't get me wrong, the food was good and I didn't mind paying the prices charged, but for a lot less I can get a much better meal at a casual dining Thai restaurant so I guess I'm paying for the decor.
