My wife and I visited 2 Fat Indians recently for lunch. Both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian Thali platter lunches were exceptional. Staff was friendly, ambiance was delightful, food was excellent! It's our favorite now.
The Service was excellent - All staff were friendly and knowledgeable The atmosphere was great and the food was beyond delicious. We had the banquet for 4 people and it was well priced with an abundance of food left over as we were too full too keep eating - we had no room for dessert :(
Fantastic, just as good as the reviews! Manager was great as well could not be happier with the evening - we had a special which was very well priced and incredible
Our dinner was a last minute plan but we're glad we went. The food was amazing and service was perfect. We will be back very soon
Fat Indian was a disappoint from the moment we were seated. I booked a table and they firstly sat me on a table that had been pulled a part with half a wall covering the view of the person across the table. We moved to another table but although booking it was right next to the kitchen where there was no effort to hide any mess. The table laminate was peeling and the visible gaps were covered old bits of food. I ordered a Pepsi with a slice of lemon. They forgot the lemon bit tutted and made a big deal out of it when I asked for the lemon. A waitress brought it over but I saw her playing with it on the way to the table and there was curry all over the lemon. We ordered two onion Bahjis to start. They were massive the waiter could have told us hold of they were. My partner enjoyed hers but I could taste the raw onion and didn't finish mine. My curry was very nice. The naan was Burt to charcoal. When I went to pay the guy pay passed my card then asked if it was alright to which I said no and he replied by saying he aid already done it. Terrible terrible place would. It return ever!
We arrived upon the opening of the restaurant and were the only patrons. Within 5 minutes we ordered our meals. The restaurant slowly had more people arrive and we began to notice that other people were getting their meals whilst we were still waiting. After waiting 40 minutes we ended up leaving, they told us that our food was 'coming' but we hadn't even received our plates, which they were handing out to the other patrons in 1/4 full restaurant. We had a show to attend, which is why we booked the earliest time (opening time) so that we had plenty of time to eat. By the time we left we didn't have enough time to get anything and went to the show starving. The only reason I'm giving them a rating of 2 was that they didn't charge us for our drinks and only made us pay for the sparkling water.
Excellent food and service.... and if you like a spicy curry, this is the place to go to. tried a few of the other well known Indian restaraunts and there's nothing wrong with them, 2FI is just that bit better. We went on Sunday at lunch time and it was a relaxed atmosphere.
Our party of three all agreed that the food was very good, the service was attentive and polite and the decore and attmosphere were pleasant. 2 Fat Indians didn't beat our favourite Indian restaurant but none-the-less we still rated it highly and would consider going again.
Excellent experience once again, food & service was top notch, couldn't ask for any better. The Lahore chicken curry was just too good, very spicy but was warned by the wait staff. Will definitely be back
This is, for me, the best Indian food I have ever had. The service is fast and friendly. Recommend the butter chicken and the soft shell crab. Will definitely be going back again and again.
Fantastic service! Delicious food! Best Indian I have tasted in Australia 🇦🇺 When we are back in Perth we will definitely visit again! Thank you for the lovely experience 🙌
This is the best Indian food we have had in perth ! Great food and Great service ! And easy booking system Highly recommend Thanks 2 fat Indians
The bottomless butter chicken on a Tuesday is a definite winner. Authentic and delicious. Very friendly and attentive staff. Food didn't take too long to come out. A great place all round.
Excellent service Excellent ambiance Excellent food, the best in Perth so far My next visit to an Indian restaurant will only be at 2 Fat Indian

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The dishes are amazing and you feel like captured in an Indian world. Once you've ordered the meals arrive fast at your table!
Very good service, the goat curry was the star dish all other dishes where above average, comprehensive selection of wines and beers. Would definitely go back again.
great food and great vibe! we always love coming here! only negative thing I could say is that it was a very cold night and the restaurant was a little chilly inside also!
Always good food, good service and in a great location . We enjoyed the banquet- a substantial meal, but will go a la carte next time
