An Indonesian warung-style diner that will sweep you away from the very first bites of its earthy rendang and house-made sambal.
They don’t take bookings. They aren’t open every day. The menu is barely more than a handful of items long. And you’d better put it on your must-do list next time you’re in Freo. Suku is the Indonesian diner you need in your life. Sure, it looks like most of the other diners in Fremantle’s casual dining FOMO quarter; reminiscent of a coffee house in most modern South East Asian nations. But it’s the beef rendang curry – deep, dark, mysteriously earthy, redolent of roasted coconut and rich with spice – that’ll have you wooed.

Or the gado gado, the classic peanut salad with egg, tofu, bean sprouts and potato, enlivened with Suku’s own sambal. Or it could be the nasi Bali with pulled chicken, peanuts and egg, made snappy with chicken “crackling”. Perch at the stools overlooking the kitchen and take the sting out of the minced chicken sate that you slathered with just a bit too much sambal matah by finishing with nutty and earthy flavoured black sticky rice, laced with coconut cream.
