We hadn't been to El Karim for quite a while - but it certainly impressed and we'll be back again soon. Located near to the Roseville Cinema (one of the great old-style cinemas of the the North side of Sydney), the food was abundant, flavoursome,...More

Enjoyed a lovely family lunch of proper Lebanese food. A little bit of fusion of other foods. Bit loud but good service. Honey & zaatar calamari was perfect. Worlds away from the take away we all know.

Lebanese and mediterranean cuisine that mixes the traditional with the contemporary Lunch and dinner, Tuesday to Sunday in a relaxed, bright but warm atmosphere From light meals and small dishes to share, to full on banquets ideal for large parties that will keep you going for a day or two New fit-out means you could grab a drink at the bar before heading to your table and take advantage of our wine, beer and cocktails list Outdoors dining is also available We welcome families with children. Our dips are usually a big hit with the little ones, and they can get messy, no problem
