Australia. The melting pot of cultures. The good news is that it means we have options a plenty when it comes to dining out. The sometimes tricky news is that we all have differing dietary backgrounds and beliefs. But fret not, because we have found some of the best eateries in Perth offering either full or partial halal menus.

We're pretty happy they chose to grace Perth with their fresh, authentic and fragrant Egyptian dishes.
