1. COPPER CHIMNEY
This 2014 Gold Plate award-winner is best known
for its southern Indian specialties including dosa, idli
and uttappam, but they get a giant high five from us
for their very delicious and very Aussie roo vindaloo.
330 South Terrace, South Fremantle.
2. HAANDI INDIAN RESTAURANT
South-of-the-river fans of Anghiti in Innaloo were
rapt when it recently expanded into Fremantle.
Haandi’s got the same amazing curries and huge
selection of vego dishes, along with a chilled-out
location just off the bustling cappuccino strip.
36 The Piazza, Fremantle.
3. BENGAL INDIAN RESTAURANT
A Freo institution since 1981, Bengal Indian is a popular
BYO restaurant in the old fire station building, beloved
for its affordable prices and buzzy vibe.
95 Queen Victoria Street, Fremantle.
Mosman Park’s new restaurant and wine bar,
Samson’s Paddock, has breathed life into the quiet
suburb’s drinking and dining scene. Created by beef
wholesaler John Smith, the bar features an exciting
food menu of dishes begging to be eaten with
a glass or two. An opportunity may have been missed
for a more adventurous wine list, but one look at the
summer-ready, multi-level outdoor terrace, complete
with comfy throw pillows and fireplaces, and all’s
forgiven. 3 Glyde Street, Mosman Park.
Indian Restaurants in Freo
Home to more than a dozen Indian restaurants, the port city
is becoming a real Little India. Here’s our pick of the best.
Bathers Beach House
Forget Little Creatures – Bathers Beach House is set to become the new hub of Freo.
Located at the old Maccas site, the venue offers stunning ocean views, a bistro menu
and a mural from local artist Amok Island. Best of all, everyone is welcome – from
champagne-sipping ladies, to families who’ve walked straight in off the beach. “We
didn’t want an exclusive, high-brow venue,” explains co-owner Nick Unmack. “People
are getting sick of getting ripped off by beachside venues that think their prices need
to reflect their location.” And what a location it is. Huge floor-to-ceiling windows on
both floors of the venue offer unobstructed views of the port, harbour and of course,
Bathers Beach. As a bonus, the venue has even splashed out on colourful sunloungers
for the patch of sand out front, which are available for free, whether you’re a patron or
not. Talk about Fremantle friendliness. 47 Mews Road, Fremantle.
Nestled on a quiet street corner away from the hustle and bustle of Freo lies one of the most exciting dining concepts Perth
has seen in ages. At The Mantle, diners must expect the unexpected – with different restaurants materialising every day,
there’s no way of knowing what lies ahead. The innovative warehouse wonderland is home to a collection of pop-ups: there’s
the speakeasy-inspired Alter Ego bar; Don Tapa, with its authentic Latin American tapas; and the BYO-friendly Magna Pizza.
Massive graffiti art panels and rustic metallic lights hang from high wooden beams, and a mezzanine balcony extends over the
ever-popular ping pong table. The vision for The Mantle came about a few years ago when husband and wife team Anatoly
Mezhov and Irene Polo first laid eyes on the beautiful heritage building on the corner of James and Beach streets in Fremantle.
“We thought how cool it would be to complement the building with creative structures, and open it to the public with great
hospitality offerings,” says Irene. “One unique aspect of The Mantle is that it provides an opportunity for people who want
to start up or expand their hospitality business, in that the structures come fitted out as restaurants so the outlay to start
a business is minimal.” This means we’re likely to see more and more yummy businesses get up and running. With future
plans for an alfresco area, we can’t wait to see what pops up next. 1 James Street, Fremantle.
