    Nothing beats a good old-fashioned BYO restaurant.

    Pull up with a cooler full of cold ones, or a couple of bottles of vino and feast the night away with your finest friends and/or family.

    Perth is of course flush with some great options, so we’ve tried to cover a variety of different flavours and locations north, south, east and west – enjoy!

    Neighbourhood Pizza

    What it says on the tin! Down a lane behind an IGA in Mt Hawthorn, Neighbourhood Pizza is the perfect place for getting together with pals. Their pizzas are elegantly simple, cater to most dietary requirements and most importantly, bloody tasty! BYO is $2/head – beer, wine and cider only.

    7 Anvil Lane, Mt Hawthorn

    Tra Vinh

    Northbridge’s best kept secret (that’s always super busy), Tra Vinh’s mix of Vietnamese and Chinese noodle dishes is one of the best. Very unpretentious and homely, the staff are always super friendly and depending on how much booze you bring, you might find yourself here for a while.

    149 Brisbane St, Northbridge
    3/297 William St, Northbridge 

    Francoforte Spaghetti Bar

    You see Francoforte pop up a lot on different Perth-based foodie lists, and it’s quite simply because their pasta is the best. Combined with a casual atmosphere it’s the perfect kick off point to a big night out in Northbridge.

    4/189 William St, Northbridge


    If it’s warm cosy vibes and wholesome pizza you’re looking for, Maylands’ staple Rossenero is the place to be. From the same team behind Neighbourhood, folks know what your local pizzeria should be like!

    18 Lyric Lane, Maylands

    Short Order Burger Co.

    Consisting slinging out some of the best burgers north and south of the river, both Short Order Burger Co. joints are BYO! Whether you want to level up that sneaky work lunch with a couple of brews or make a night of it, Short Order’s got the burger situation sorted.

    800 Hay St, Perth
    1 James St, Fremantle (The Sunshine Harvester Works) 

    Khanom Thai

    You’d be forgiven for missing this unassuming little Thai spot along Bulwer St, but it’s worth stopping in for. The quintessential Thai neighbourhood spot, it’s small, warm and welcoming, with excellent value (and tasting) dishes.

    219 Bulwer St, Perth


    If you’re missing the tastes of the Mediterranean, Vincenzo’s huge, open-plan dining space and equally large serving sizes should help a little. From Sicilian arancini to bountiful bowls of pasta, fresh seafood and Spanish risotto, their stacked menu should keep you very busy (and full).

    485 Beach Rd, Duncraig

    Capri Restaurant

    One of Fremantle’s best and longest-standing restaurants, there’s a reason Capri has been around since the 50s! They’re now onto their fourth generation of family members helping run the joint, and the wholesome, homely vibes will have you back over and over again.

    21 South Tce, Fremantle

    Shimizu Café Restaurant

    It might not get the same amount of fanfare as some of Perth’s other prime Japanese establishments, but Shimizu along William St is one of the best. Rocks the staples to perfection along with a few surprises, and the unassuming vibe is a welcome one for the area.

    3/323 Williamt St, Northbridge


    Mashawi in Mount Lawley do Moroccan meals magnificently, and their BYO policy is just a nice little bonus. Pro tip: Pop in on a Saturday night and you may find yourself privy to an authentic belly dance performance.

    644 Beaufort St, Mt Lawley


    One of Perth’s finest places for Japanese cuisine, the only issue is it’s bloody hard to get a booking – that’s how popular it is. Its intimate size doesn’t help, but if you can get in the season 7-course menu is always an absolute delight.

    22/145 Stirling Hwy, Nedlands

    Nasi Lemak Korner

    If you’re craving some authentic Malaysian street cuisine, Nasi Lemak Korner in Como and Mossie Park have it by the spoonful. Their roti is unrivalled around Perth, and they’re even happy to help you learn yourself in special Roti Classes!

    18 Preston St, Como & 626 Stirling Hwy, Mosman Park

    Lady Of Ro

    Boasting a Mediterranean-inspired lineup of chargrilled share plates, it’ll take you straight to the cobbled pathways of Greece in no time. The owner is also renowned for her desserts, so make sure you leave some room for her chocolate ricotta cake.

    345 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco

    Mom Dumpling House

    Outside a nice can of Coke, is there anything better than beers and dumplings? Fortunately Mom Dumpling House in East Vic Park is happy for you to have both, and you’ll be kept busy with her massive lineup of dumplings and noodle dishes.

    687 Albany Hwy, East Victoria Park

    The Prophet

    Down the road from Mom’s is The Prophet, rocking some fantastic Middle Eastern specialties. Another unassuming spot (which is almost a giveaway for quality), the service is friendly and warm, much like their hearty, halal dishes.

    907A Albany Hwy, East Victoria Park
