Next to the iconic Queens Hotel in the cosmopolitan suburb of Mount Lawley.

It’s thought that the people of Perth have an undeniable obsession with Indian food but the reasons why are often debated. Could it be that we have so many British expatriates living here or could it simply be that we have an abundance of great Indian restaurants to choose from? If you’ve ever visited 2 Fat Indians in Mount Lawley, you’d probably argue the latter. Perfectly situated next to The Queens hotel on Beaufort Street, 2 Fat Indians is often the next point of call after a few pints at the pub. The vibrant orange interior, decked out with comfortable booths and fabulous pendulum light fittings, seems to combine with mouth-watering aromas to beckon pub-goers and footpath traffic inside. The trouble is, if it’s a Friday or Saturday night and you haven’t made a booking, you may be disappointed as this place fills up quickly.

Folks arrive in droves to get their fill of the famous Goan fish curry, rogan josh and butter chicken, soaking up the last remnants of gravy with superb garlic naan roti. Also responsible for Bollywood Restobar in Innaloo, the owners of 2 Fat Indians certainly know what they are doing and employ Indian chefs who have five-star experience when it comes to recreating this traditional northern Indian cuisine. Although I’m not vegetarian, I often give meat the flick when dining on Indian since there are so many tasty vego options. One particular dish that sends me round the bend is dhal makhani. Made with black lentils in a tomato-based gravy with cream and spices, it has to be one of my favourite dishes at this restaurant. However, no matter what you choose, every dish is sensational. Just make sure you order enough naan to sop up the gravy!

They have a fabulous spread and a very elaborate menu. 2 Fat Indians is one of the finest Indian restaurants that Australia has. My patent order there is Butter Chicken, Paneer Masala and their Gulab Jamun. It’s delectable as ever!review  03/12/2012

When we arrived at 2 Fat Indians it was quiet but had filled by the time we were leaving. We were seated quickly and given menus. Everything was served in a timely manner with water being topped up regularly. We enjoyed tasty starters like Vegetable Samosas & Chicken Tikka. When ordering the main courses we ensured the waiter knew we liked spicy food. The main course dishes of Fish Masala and Lamb Chops Curry were cooked to the agreed spice level and were very flavorsome. The Shahi Tukda finished off the meal  27/11/2012

If you’re looking for feisty Indian food then this is the place! I had come here with my husband and since he had worked in India for a long time, he loved 2 Fat Indians. We both gorged on some hot Indian food and some beer to go with it. If you’re a foodie, then you’re so going to enjoy this  22/11/2012

The most difficult thing for a Gujju is to find a place that serves vegetarian food! Preferably Indian! In Australia it was difficult at the beginning! But since the arrival of 2 Fat Indians in town, life has been so much tastier. Great spicy Indian food on my plate! Couldn't ask for much more than this!review  21/11/2012

I am a total food connoisseur and love trying out new places each time. Being an Australian, I don't usually eat spicy food but I gave Indian cuisine a try last month at 2 Fat Indians. Fantastic flavors and spices, cooked to brilliance and a thoroughly savory meal. Will definitely go back!review  17/11/2012

A couple of my friends and I had dinner at 2 Fat Indians. The food was truly authentic and a friend had recommended the Chicken Tikka Masala which was amazing. We dined on Lamb korma, channa masala and butter chicken with kulfi for dessert. They were superbly delicious. Though I have dined at many Indian restaurants this one seemed to be unique : )review  07/11/2012

I went to 2 Fat Indians with friends on a Friday for dinner. The food was out of this world and we had a blast! I must say that I have never eaten such good Indian food in the whole of Australia. Everything was cooked to perfection and the food was not at all oily. Had a great time and a fabulous meal!review  22/10/2012

I’ve been to 2 Fat Indians a couple of times and I believe they serve some yummy Indian food in whole of Australia. Their food takes me down memory lane each time I eat there. Feels a lot like home and my family enjoys eating there!review  28/09/2012
