For us, Jimmy will only last about 10 minutes in a highchair before he starts trying to climb out.
I decided to search for family-friendly cafes and restaurants - there was a list of 10 Restaurants with Kids Play Areas in Perth and also a list on BuggyBuddys.
They looked promising and we decided to give Ninniku Jip, a Korean restaurant in Vic Park.
The play area was set in a corner of the restaurant, and glass walls meant that you could keep an eye on your child.
The kids' meal was $9.50 (honey soy chicken). It's a price that we would normally expect to pay full a full adult meal.....
Rob ordered the seafood udon, at $18.80 it was also on the pricey side. His verdict - fairly ordinary.
We arrived quite early about 6.30 and service was very good. The restaurant filled up fast so I guess it was fairly popular. (71% likes it on UrbanSpoon).
For people with slightly older kids, or those whose kids are just better at staying put, Ninniku Jip is pretty family-friendly. But for someone brought up on Asian cuisine, I would say it was average and overpriced. Now I know we only had 2 dishes, and that might be a little bit unfair to judge a restaurant on just 2 dishes. BUT. We can't all order lots of things on the menu, it's just not practical so a restaurant should ensure that every single one of its dishes is delicious and up to standard.
