“Meals were Superb”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Stayed at the Perth ambassador hotel and as it was late walked across the road to this restaurant which is on the ground floor of the Pan Pacific restaurant. Read a previous review about how empty the restaurant was which was a little off putting. Sat down anyway and then was surprised about the quality and taste of the food. Was it because I was tired and anything tasted good...don't think so.

Had the pork belly as a starter but it was small considering the price. Nevertheless I would have it again now that I have had it once. Colleague had the scallops/fish and thought it excellent.

For mains we had the lamb cutlets and duck...both were outstanding. Service was quite good although the waitresses did tend to be strangers a lot. All part of a learning process for them.
No desserts or coffee and with a bottle of red wine, one beer and a glass of white wine the bill was $194 so its not a cheap night. I believe you will enjoy the experience though just don't get hung up on the small stuff.

“Perfect High Tea!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Had a fantastic ladies high tea for a table of 8 people yesterday, overlooking the courtyard and pool. Staff were very polite and attentive, huge rage of teas and lovely sparkling, which was regularly topped up. The savoury and desserts were amazing also, you definately get your moneys worth! Would certainly come here again, thank you origins!

“Great afternoon high tea”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Lovely afternoon spent at Origins for a high tea. It was a shame it took an hour for entrees to be served. Food was fresh and tasty, just wish there was more. It was disappointing that we didn't get offered a top up of our tea or coffee either.

“So slow”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Last night in Perth so we ate at the hotel restaurant. The menu looked reasonable and when the food came was very well presented but just not large enough to satisfy. We ordered dessert but the incorrect dessert came and we were informed that the chef would need to prepare my crumble from scratch. 25 minutes later it arrived and was ok but because of the time taken we had it free alongside some drink. There was very little atmosphere as it was half empty so a little disappointed overall
