Perth is home to 1.8 million people and the capital of Western Australia, indeed a center of culture on the west coast it is home to dozens of great restaurants with fine cuisine from every nationality and ethnic group on the planet.

Indian food is well known throughout the world for many reasons, but perhaps the best reason is that Indian food can be extremely spicy.
