Okay but nothing special

Visited for dinner when Uncle Billys was full up. Was fairly empty at 7:20pm on a Monday. We ordered quail for a shared entree which was a little overcooked. For mains we ordered the beef ried rice which was pretty dry, the peking beef which was excellent and honey chicken which lacked flavour... read more

Followed the crowds from Fringefest into Billy Lees but was disappointed. Chose the peking duck. Small portion. Brought the two courses out together. Not enough vegies with it. Charged us extra for a few pickled veg. Had the same dish next door the week before and it was 100% better. Will not return to Billy Lees

Needed a quick meal before going to a show. The food was excellent, freshly cooked and came out quickly and efficiently. BYO, so we had a couple of beers, with no corkage charge. And all the food was reasonably priced. So a great -quick - and cheap Chinese meal.

Went there twice, for both dine in and take away. Food alright, used to be and could have been better. Very much a food joint for the after hours clients (late night supper). Space a bit tight, with guests (sitting/walking) bumping into our chairs as we eat.

On the advice of family, friends, I decided I had to try Billy Lees. Seemed to be an iconic place to eat, tucked away at the back of Roe Street. Not sure whether I was under a misconception (or maybe the friends who suggested it were under the weather from a night out??), I thought it would be cheap (it... More

Hidden little gem. It took us a while to track it down but it was well worth it. Great menu, very friendly service and BYO, not much else is needed for a fun night with family.

Always a good stop after a night out. Service always super fast both in taking your order and out from the kitchen open late most nights. Good food at a reasonable price as a hawker style Chinese.

One of the oldest 'institution' in Perth and the best. From 2am feast after nightclubbing back in the days (1994 to be exact) or 11pm -starving because we'd been studying for exams- porridge time to recent 6pm family dining session because the noodle market event was oh so disappointedly expensive with small portion and extremely long queue, we opted for...
