About Dainty Dowager

Dainty Dowager is Perth’s first Asian roasting house, snack joint and bar all rolled into one. A place where Chinese roasted duck, candied pork belly noodles and cola marinaded skewers sit side by side with one of the city’s most eclectic Asian influenced cocktail lists. Channelling a feel and ambience reminiscent of a prohibition style bar in Shanghai 1920s, Dainty Dowager sets the scene for something special every night, situated on Beaufort Street in the centre of the area, equidistant between the train stations of Mount Lawley and East Perth. Book a table online today and head on over for a unique Asian dining experience in Perth.

More about Dainty Dowager, Mount Lawley

The roasted meats of Asia are some of the real highlights of the contnient’s cuisine, and if you’re looking to pick up a prime example of them in Perth, then you need to get over to Dainty Dowager in Mount Lawley. They’re easily reached – their location could not be better, as they’re on the main dining drag in northern-central Perth, Beaufort Street – and when you arrive, they’ll be waiting with a huge range of meats that have been roasted in house. Go for the duck on the bone, the crispy roast pork or the char siu barbecue pork – or really pig out and go for all three together, spread between you and your mates.

The roasted meat dishes are what sets the Dainy Dowager apart from other Asian restaurants in Mount Lawley, but they are far from the only draw. There are plenty of well known favourites, from dry-fried bee hoon with prawns and pork, hot and sour steamboat and cured sashimi with ponzu jelly and miso, accompanied by house signatures that are lesser known, such as cola-marinated pork skewers, drunken crispy whole prawns and homemade silken tofu with shiitake mushrooms and oyster sauce. If you’re looking for an Asian restaurant on Beaufort Street, or anywhere north of Perth’s CBD, then you need to give Dainty Dowager a go: you won’t leave disappointed. Well, unless you forget to book ahead and end up not getting a table – so reserve online ahead of time to secure a seat.

Held a work function for 8 people. Excellent service and atmosphere. The food in the "Far East Feast" was delicious and came to the table in no time at all.
