ORDERED

Salt and pepper Squid: Semolina-crusted squid with lemon and aioli $18.00

Sizzling prawns: Green prawns simmered in a tomato confit and served in a hot pot $24.00

Happy Father's Day to all the daddy's out there first of all.

The waitress was able to memorise our orders correctly. The table was constantly cleared and staff tended to us regularly. It was almost full house tonight, but it was not rowdy.

The Semolina-crusted squid was light and crispy fresh. I enjoyed sampling the flavours of the Shawarma, but my favourites had to be the squid and spenieh.

Definitely coming here again.

We had the vegetarian platter for two; the starters were really very good, the rest of it was a tiny bit bland for our taste but well cooked; the lentil dish in particular could have had a little more oomph. That said the service was lovely, the place itself was nice and the food, if not spectacular, still makes it well worth a visit.

We were recommended by our hotel to come here and we were not disappointed! We ordered 3 entrees between 3 of us and it was plenty for us for dinner! Service was great friendly and so tasty! Will be back!

Amazing food, one of Sydney's best for Lebanese! Good service to accompany and a reasonable price means this place hits all 3 major categories.

If you've never tried Lebanese food before this restaurant is a great place to start, it came well recommended by business colleagues and didn't disappoint! We took an early table at 6pm on a Tuesday and given the size of the Restaurant and number of covers it already had several tables occupied and the atmosphere was good and got better as the night went on.... Plenty of authentic and tasty Lebanese food choices were a available Including Fresh Oysters and grilled Lobster, skewered Beef and Chicken and traditional breads, dips (Hummus, Tzatziki, yoghurt and fresh salads.... Really enjoyable
