What a perfect night to try out the food at Double Rainbow. Pride parade outside with an amazing view from the restaurant, the best waiter ever and delicious food sent from heaven. We loved the choices, the presentation, the atmosphere in the bar and then again in the restaurant. Everything was busy and fun loving, people coming and going, in the main, most were in good spirits. Disappointed that by 8pm there was no soft shell crab available and no chicken pot stickers but by some miracle, the pot stickers appeared after we had been told they had sold out. Nice surprise for us and thoroughly enjoyable.
Since visiting, we have recommended Double Rainbow to so many people, we have talked to those who knew nothing of it's existence and to those who have already eaten there. We will be returning to this wonderful place to try out more of the exceptionally tasty goodies on offer.

Loved it and highly recommend.

The satay eggplant skewers were a flavour sensation! The Saigon Summer beer also went down a treat!
The recommendation to have the pig's ear salad was received with some hesitation but we were so happy we chose it - it was absolutely delicious. We were disappointed that there was no banana flower salad available but we will just have to have that next time!!

Initial impressions were good. We were seated at a long table next to a family and drink orders were taken. From there however, the service deteriorated markedly. Whilst we received our first dish quite promptly the remaining dishes took an age to come. Our empty glasses were not attended to, and we had to call for service as well as water which was forgotten. The remaining dishes were perfunctory served without apology with 1 dish being forgotten altogether. The family next to us had to wait for an inordinate amount of time for the correct dessert for their young daughter (the waitress ordered the wrong dessert) and were just about to leave in frustration when it finally arrived. The impression we were left with on the night is that where was absolutely no care factor from anyone. We couldn’t get anyone to clear our table, or provide the bill, so we were left standing around and there seemed little regard by the staff of our poor experience. The decor of the building was an opportunity lost as for such an historical place it could have been presented in a much more thoughtful way. We won’t be returning, there are too many good placed in Perth who offer a much better customer experience these days.

This was for brunch and it was very quiet in the bar. I'm going again in the evening to try the full experience!

Amazing food although we didn’t get everything we ordered delivered to the table. Luckily we had eaten plenty! A little bit loud but cool vibe! Highly recommend for vegans.

The atmosphere and food was amazing, the staff did everything they could to make our night as good as it could be.

As with many popular restaurants (especially when they first open) there were some delays on our booking due to the group ahead of us taking longer than anticipated, our group bring large probably didn't help with flexibility. The staff were excellent however and the waiting/bar area was perfect to while away the time.

Service is slow for drinks & waiting staff appears to be confused as the ordering process & food delivery is more complicated than it needs to be.

Saturday night was probably not the best night to test this new eatery, but then again if they can't handle the heat...? Noise wise it was like dining in a night club with the Doof Doof from upstairs vibrating through the place. Besides being offered two wrong orders and a wait of half an hour, those that did arrive were disapointing. Delicate Prawn Dumplings were overpowered by their accompanying extras. Spring Rolls had a perfect crunch, but lacked a decent filling and weren't anywhere near hot. Chicken Wings lacked the kick as described in a recent review, except for a strong vinegar taste. They were also slightly pink towards the bone, so definately did not fall off the bone nor showed any sign of melt in your mouth tenderness. The Soft Shell Crab appeared to be the legs only and left an oily taste on the palate. We had intended to add a couple of mains plus desert to our night out in Northbridge, but after so much disapointment, paid up and left the premises. As an aside, the staff were absolutely amazing from the time we arrived. They did however fail to ask if we had enjoyed our 'dining' experience.

I had tickets to see a show at the Rechabite Hall BOOM BOOM in the house of BLAH BLAH. It was a great show and awesome cocktails served in the upstairs bar. Me and my friends all went down to the restaurant straight after the show and were seated for a table of 7 at one of the back round tables with the lazy suzan. We ordered more drinks with the nice bar staff which came out super fast. Then we all went for the "Feed me a little" option and left the menu decision up to the chefs. My partner is a vegetarian so I had to also go for the vego feed me option but my god I was blown away by how good all the dishes that came out to us were. I walked away happy and fed even though I didn't eat any meat. Every plate that came out was awesome. I would 100% come back here just for the cool vibes great to see the life brought back to such an old Perth building. If they can keep this quality pumping out this venue will be around for a long time.
