This Saturday the 6th of June, phase 3 easing of government restrictions has enabled more restaurants and bars to open and start operating. Western Australia is the first state in the nation to implement the new 2 square metre per person capacity. You can stop worrying about what you are going to cook for dinner and enjoy a memorable family night out. We all know it can be expensive to eat out rather than stay home, so we’ve done all the hard work for you and compiled a list of restaurants you can take the family out to without breaking the bank.
Munchy Monk Dumpling House | Northbridge
This hidden gem is tucked in an alleyway in Northbridge and serves up some of the best handmade dumplings and wontons Perth has to offer.
