Great Middle Eastern food, some of the best I have had and highly recommend it. Great atmosphere and can not fault the service! You certainly won't leave the place hungry and the taste buds will thank you for the experience. Best to go in a group as you can get to share a wider variety of food.

Very upmarket restaraunt. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Being a Friday night, we were entertained by belly dancers and had a great time on the floor with the dancers. Totally different to other Lebanese restaurants in the type of food which was really great. Recommend this place anytime and expect to visit again.

Fantastic food, fresh, authentic and tasty. At last a large restaurant that has been decorated in such a way that you can talk to your dining companions.

Food is good however i cannot say it's great. We had the shish- chicken and lamb and while i like it, i cannot say its spectacular. With the price range, i expect a little bit better or tastier .

It was an unbelievable night in the private back room of the restaurant and as expected the food was superb, the service impeccable (we... More

I randomly searched for a Lebanese restaurant in Sydney and saw this one. I ordered tabouli and prawns. They were both extremely fresh and flavored well. The bread they serve is really good as well. As a Lebanese person I was not disappointed. I most definitely would recommend this restaurant.
