This evening my daughter and I had the pleasure of dining at East Meets West in Perth.

They have seating inside and out. Since there were many people outside we opted for a table for two inside by the front window. We were promptly greeted by our server Natasha who was excellent at her job. Not only was she kind and friendly but she also checked in many times to make sure we were satisfied with our meals.

We started with the nachos on waffle fries and added chicken which was delicious! We also had the samosas which come 4 to an appetizer plate - they taste exactly as you hoped them to . As a main course I had the Chef Ram exotic special and my daughter had the spicy butter chicken . See photos. The food was plentiful so we are fortunate enough to have leftovers!

If you are travelling through Perth or happen to live nearby do yourself a favour and stop in. You will NOT be disappointed ! There is truly something for everyone in the menu.

Where do I begin? We had been traveling all day, and stopped in Perth for a bite to eat. We wanted something better than pub food. Most pub food has some much grease that John Travolta is in it. There is a Mexican restaurant with picturesque seating by the canal, but we didn't want the food to remind us the next day that we ate it. We walked past a German restaurant, but the food is heavy, and an hour later you are hungry for power. We checked out the menu of a wine cellar place, and didn't feel like paying over $40 for a piece of a local cow that ate just grass had a massage every day. And then we came upon East Meets West.

The menu is fabulous. The prices are perfect. The tastes are authentic. The dishes fill the stomach and satisfy the soul. The chef, named Ram actually wore a chef jacket. That says something in itself about his education in the culinary arts. From talking to the superb waiter (who was ethnically at Trinidadian transplanted to Canada), we learned that the chef trained in French and Italian cuisine but was from Sri Lanka. His food was out of this world.

The wait is staff is terrific and knowledgeable. They are prompt and watchful and helpful. They know their stuff, and can explain the cuisine. We got a taste of the local beer before we ordered it.

East Meets West describes their menu. They have a range of curries, Indian food, and Italian food. The curries are extremely flavorful. The naan bread is delicious. The portions are ample and filling. The chicken parmigiana is not factory chicken, and the tomato pasta sauce is fresh and made on the premises. You know from the first taste that you are eating the fruits of a chef with serious cooking skills.

The range of the menu is fabulous. The wings must have a choice of at least 10 sauces from a chef who uses spices like a composer and conductor select instruments and notes from a symphony orchestra.

My partner has multiple food restrictions including gluten-free and you can get gluten-free pasta with the dishes. Fabulous. You can also get great vegetarian dishes. They are most accommodating with the food permutations and combinations.

There is nothing more to say. This is THE place to eat in Perth. Not only is it East Meets West, but it is also FLAVOR MEETS FOOD YOU KNOW and GREAT FOOD MEETS LOW PRICES. If you have never been, you gotta go (again).

We were a little hesitant at first as my wife has some food allergies. But a quick chat with Chef Ram and he made a special meal she could eat, and I ordered the butter chicken after reading some of the other review. Neither meal disappointed, we were both delighted with our meals. Could not recommend any more highly, East meets West is now on our list of must eat restaurants!

We chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The service was very good and our server was able to find out the answers to our dietary questions. As a party of five with varied dietary needs and tastes, we were all able to find something on the menu that appealed to us.

The food was fresh and well prepared for the most part. We all shared the yummy calamari appetizer. Unfortunately there were only two bowls of the Thai ginger carrot soup left that day so one of us did without! The Thai and Greek salads with chicken were excellent, steak and fries were prepared as requested and the Jambalaya was extra spicy as requested. The chicken wings arrived late and in no way were equivalent to one pound as described in the menu - instead there were six small wings on the plate.

I didn't have dessert but the others seemed to enjoy the tiramisu, tartufo and sorbets.

Overall, we enjoyed our meal and would return again to try some of the other items on the menu.

We were intrigued by the concept of a combination of East Indian and Italian cooking. We were served by the restaurant owner, who hails from Sri Lanka, but was trained as an Italian Chef in Canada. Thus the combination of Indian and Italian cooking. Two in our party enjoyed a meal from the Italian side of the menu while my wife and I took the Indian side. All meals were excellent and reasonably priced. They also have a good selection of local beers and wines. Service was very friendly and I would have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant to anyone visiting Perth.
