The Best Asian Restaurants in Perth for a Flavour Explosion

Chopsticks poised, sarongs loosened, tropical state of mind at the ready.


As Western Australia is just a short flight away from Southeast Asia, it’s only natural that we have a natural affinity with the exotic flavours of the East.

Ranging from Chinese, Thai, Filipino, Japanese, Vietnamese and Indonesian, Perth's diverse culinary scene invites diners on an exciting, flavour-packed journey, traversing between fine dining favourites to cheap and cheerful gems.

Here are our top picks of the best Asian restaurants in Perth.

Lucy Luu

Lucy Luu

Adventurous​ ​Asian fusion ​share plates, ​playful cocktails, a premium wine list and all of the good times await at Lucy Luu.

Nobu Perth


It almost goes without saying that Perth’s Nobu is up there on any list of Perth’s best Asian restaurants. It’s one of Perth’s priciest Japanese restaurants by far, but dining at Nobu is an experience in itself.

Long Chim

Long Chim Perth

Meaning ‘come and taste,’ Long Chim invites Perth diners to the streets of Bangkok with its tasty dishes under the watchful eye of celebrity chef David Thompson. The very man himself makes appearances from time to time, not that many diners notice as they’re too busy wiping their brows – some dishes should come with a warning about the explosion of flavours, thankfully soothed with a selection of tropical cocktails.

All the excitement of Thailand is served on the plate along with some surprises like the Sour Orange Curry of fish. Situated in the basement of the State Buildings, you’re surrounded by street art to match what many declare is Perth’s best Thai street food.

Lola’s Filipino Diner

Lola’s Filipino Diner 

Anyone who has travelled to the Philippines will recount stories of enjoying adobo (marinated meat) and liempo (grilled pork belly). All excellent choices at Lola’s Filipino Diner, but the fried chicken is only what KFC can aspire to be, made to order in a mix of secret herbs and spices and is served with house-made gravy and silky garlic rice. Also on the menu is the crowd-pleasing Boodle Fight, designed to be shared with a selection of dishes off the menu served directly onto the table atop banana leaves. Get ready to dig in at this Vic Park diner; although compact, what it lacks in size is more than compensated for in flavour and fun.

Northbridge Chinese Restaurant

From the moment you step into the hustle at the generically sounding Northbridge Chinese Restaurant, you can’t help but be swept up in the chaos. As trolleys careen by teeming with steaming yum cha and touting waitresses, you’ll undoubtedly order way more steamed and pan-fried dumplings, deep-fried chilli squid tentacles and glutinous rice with steamed chicken than you probably should. But that’s half the fun, right? Yum cha means ‘to drink tea,’ which is free flowing along with freshly squeezed juices.

Good Fortune Roast Duck House

Good Fortune Roast Duck House 

It is indeed anyone’s good fortune who dines on the Peking duck or BBQ pork at the Good Fortune Roast Duck House. They’ve even managed to make long beans indulgent by frying them in mince pork and garlic. With roast ducks hanging in the windows, if you can’t decide what to order off the extensive menu, rest assured you can’t go wrong with anything featuring their signature boneless duck or suckling pig, or opt for a banquet and leave yourself in their capable hands. Conveniently located in Northbridge and East Victoria Park, our tip is to order extra for leftovers the following day.
