The Manila Restaurant of Perth, Australia


Welcome to the Manila Restaurant! The unique flavour of Phillippine cuisine is not well known internationally. Unlike other Asian cuisine, the Philippines offers an Oriental/Latin fusion arising from it’s rich Spanish/Malay/Indigenous heritage. Add to this, the more recent American influences and you have a truly exciting dining experience awaiting you at the Manila Restaurant.
