One of Perth’s best noodle houses, with handmade noodles worthy of adoration.

One of Perth’s most revered noodle spots, Two Hands Noodles might be famed for its Sarawak kolo mee – featuring spring noodles with bite, lightly seasoned with garlic oil and soy, then topped with char siu and minced pork – but there are more reasons to linger. Add the mee pok, kampua and pan mian noodles, for example, with various toppings and soups to slurp, and it’s no wonder people keep coming back. Whichever path you choose, the balance of flavours is tipped to let the handmade noodles shine.

And while the namesake may steal the spotlight here, the bao also demand attention. Filled with sticky char siu, the soft, fluffy buns are steamer-sized and require – you guessed it – two hands to wrangle. Fried radish rice rolls are another standout, with satisfying wok hei char and added interest from pickled radish and egg. Paired with the house chilli oil, this dish is another revelation.

The tidy space is tight and bustling, the service unfussed, and communal tables means meeting neighbouring diners, if only to pause and marvel at the bowls in front of you. Fair warning, it fills up fast here, with lunchtime and weekend queues a regular sight.

Pro tip? The breakfast noodles from 10am are always a great way to start the day.
