You might be more familiar with Indian restaurants in Perth than their counterparts to the north, but if you get the chance to indulge in a Nepalese feast, then it certainly not one to be passed up on. Saino Nepalese Restaurant & Cafe offer such an experience in Como, with a menu that is filled with favourites from the roof of the world. Nepalese food, as is befitting the location of the country, takes influences from both of their larger cousins to the north and the south – try the vegetable momo dumplings, which take a little from the dim sum cart and the curry house starter menu, while itself remaining resolutely unique to Nepalese cuisine. We’d recommend the Saino house signature, special goat curry, cooked to your spice specifications with garlic, ginger, onions, tomato and fresh coriander. Book a table and head on over to Canning Highway, right by Canning Bridge for a Nepalese feast at Saino.
We went to Sainos because all the reviews about the service and food had been so positive. This place is great. We rang them ten minutes prior to arriving to ask if it was ok to bring a birthday cake for dessert as it was our daughter's birthday. Not only was that ok but by the time we arrived the owners had blown up some balloons and put up a birthday welcome sign. We ordered different entrees to share plus 7 different curries and all of them were tasty and fresh. The leftovers we couldn't eat they happily packed up for us to bring home. But it really was the friendly service that made this place worth 6 stars from the waiter to the chef who came and had a good chat to us. They were genuinely the nicest people. Like other reviewers we were surprised sainos wasn't full on a Friday night. We can only assume it's the location that makes people overlook it. Dont overlook it. Give it a go and soak up the warmth provided by both the family owners and the good.
A wide range in the menu, our dishes very well prepared, friendly staff. Superb with boisterous grandchildren, top marks for their 'Go banana' smoothie. Garlic and other naans are a must have. However, very quiet on the evening we visited, Saino really deserve to have many more patrons.
Great dishes, excellent service for our party of six including two children. A quiet space, even though it is on a very busy road, Canning Highway.
