I don't know if this place has new and inexperienced management or what but it has declined in its quality since I was there 18 months ago. The bread tasted as though it was frozen....it arriving in a freezer bag didn't help. The vine leaf...More

We had dinner here on a hot summer's evening. The place seemed unfair conditioned and so I sweated during dinner. The waitress was a bit inexperienced and it took a while to get the order right. The meat platter was good - nice dips and...More

There are many good Lebanese restaurants in this neighbourhood but this most certainly isn't one of them. Please do yourself a favour and choose any of the others in the area, every single one is head and shoulders above this dump. If you're attracted by...More

After reading online that Fatimas was one of Sydney's best byo's, we decided to check it out. Disaster. When we were seated there were old beer bottles scattered on the chair that no one had bothered to clean up. This should've been our warning. We...More

Why? BYO. Private spaces. $35 banquet. Hot belly dancer. Friendly staff. Yummy food. Local. Music volume just right. No TV screens. Free ice buckets. Genuine care from the manager. Convenient location. No tourists. Sydney institution. BYO.
