We have heard great things about Ha-lu but only had the opportunity to experience the culinary excellence last week. It was busy Tuesday night and the service was a bit slow. Two of us shared 4 small dishes: agadeshi tofu, pork belly, duck aubergine and grilled wagyu beef. Not only satisfying the gustatory senses, all the dishes were also pleasing... More

This place is simply sublime. The decor is understated and stylish, and the space has a cozy, special atmosphere. The staff are superb - attentive without being overbearing. The idea here is that you order 5 or 6 dishes tapas-style. The lovely lady and I started with the fresh spring rolls and the miso soup. The spring rolls were a... More

Diner with friends, four of us were first timers at Ha-Lu , well what a really really really fantastic experience. Service was great everything was well explained even down to that due to the kitchen size the meals would be staggered which gave us time to chat, staff friendly and attentive , couldn't fault the food fresh light fragrant and...

There's nothing pretentious about Ha-Lu which is magnificently great when you just want to eat and not be distracted. Mind you, there were two pictures (not paintings) that loomed above my right ear that looked like...well......two "paintings" that I'd seen in every Japanese restaurant I've ever gone to! The sort of Geisha-look from the girl and the Samurai look for... More

Dinner for son's birthday in our favorite local Japanese restaurant. Service as always was good. Attentive without being obtrusive. Food for the boys was the pork belly and chicken dishes. Well presented and appreciated. I had the Octopus. My partner had the tempura and tofu - vegetarian dishes. All in all a good meal

I have read numerous glowing reports of this secluded restaurant. After this evenings visit it s easy to see why. We were met by the charming maître d, who I assume was the owner, who explained the Izakaya style dishes. We ordered six dishes including several entrees, bearing in mind that the portion sizes are not big. The duck and... More

I've been to this restaurant 4 times over the last 3yrs and it remains one of my favourite restaurants in Perth without doubt. The menu is a mixture of traditional and more contemporary Japanese cuisine so it will appeal to the fussy and more adventurous eaters in your path. Dishes are prepared to the highest standards and the service is... More

My partner and I had dinner at Ha-Lu last night. I am still in absolute awe at how incredible every dish we ate was. From the best sashimi we have ever had (the salmon tasted like it was caught that day), most incredible Wagyu tataki for starters. Mains we shared the Wagyu stone pot, pork belly and sea bass. The...
