Chapas in Mount Lawley is a charming restaurant and bar, located on the vibrant and buzzing Beaufort Street. Specialising in Chinese tapas – see what they did there? – this unique spot offers authentic flavours with a modern twist. We can definitely get behind that. While the traditional elements of the two cuisines may be metaphorical and physical miles apart, Chapas offers the colour, freshness and warmth from both these distinctive cuisines. And boy does it work. Inspired by the various and diverse provinces in China and Hong Kong, the dishes here are exciting and some of the most creative you’ll find in Perth and are cooked using high quality and seasonal ingredients. Book a table now and head on over to Chapas Perth, right where Beaufort Street and Walcott Street cross. You’re in for a treat!
Chapas is the central point between Spanish-style service and classic Chinese cooking, taking the iconic dishes of the many cuisines that constitute contemporary China and portioning them in sharing small plates and platters. Tapas dishes are all the rage, and so the logical step of using that serving method and applying it to Chinese cuisine isn’t that hard a jump to make, and at Chapas on Beaufort Street in Perth’s Mount Lawley district, they are making the very most of it. Let us give you a brief introduction to what you will discover when you arrive at their doorstep.
To begin, you will want to split a few small plates around between you and your mates. That could be their prawn toast, vegetarian spring rolls or deep-fried honey lemon chicken wings, or more idiosyncratic dishes such as “chinizza” – the penchant for punning doesn’t stop with the name at Chapas – a Chinese pizza with scallions and mozzarella. Follow it up with char siu barbecue pork, roast duck on the bone or salt & pepper lamb cutlets – or a platter of dim sum, steamed or fried – and wash it down something from the cocktail menu. Reserve a table at Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley for a quite unique dining experience in Perth.
The meal was very good , our group thoroughly enjoyed it It was the service that was excellent thanks for a great evening event awesome
What a gorgeous place! We recently went to Chapas for my mother's birthday and it was such a lovely evening. The staff were very accommodating for some of my family members don't eat spicy food (and some of us love it!) so the kitchen was more than happy to give us the sauces on the side. The decor is lovely and the toilets have awesome wallpaper. They showed us their upstairs functions area which looked lovely and secluded, perfect for our next family event! They had a great range of interesting cocktails, as well as your favourite classic beverages. Now, the important part; the food! AMAZING. The food was so good! Every dish was so flavoursome and well presented, and it all came out fairly quickly. Tapas style food is one of my favourite ways to eat, because sharing is caring, and Chapas really bring you some amazing dishes that are perfect to share. As a result everything is very reasonably priced, and the portion sizes are good. Some of our favourites were the truffle and mushroom charcoal dumplings, the duck pancakes, the popcorn chicken, the spare ribs and the mussels. For dessert, the deconstructed bubble tea was delightful and the Youtiao (Chinese fried churros) were so yummy paired with a salted caramel ice cream. A lovely dining experience from start to finish, thank you Chapas!!
Great menu, had nice warm cosy feeling. Food was fantastic, and is in a good location.
