My wife and I returned to El-Pheonician after about 10 years to sample their culinary delights which we once knew and raved about. It so happened we were in the vicinity and took the opportunity to visit once again, our expectations were however let down by the food. Starting with the 'Eggplant (Baba Ganouje)' which was delicious and smokey we... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal here with a supplier to our company. The air-conditioned interior made a welcome haven from a hot evening in Western Sydney. The service was attentive and helpful. The food was delicious and had enough choices to keep everyone happy. The Almaza beer with lemon and salt was excellent too. Happily return here again.

This is one of my favorite places in Parra. Service is great. The food caters to vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores. The ambiance is great but can get a little loud especially with the belly dancers come out.

Seven of us visited this restaurant on a weekend; and were quickly seated at our table. Menus were given, wine and food was quickly ordered. We had the platters, both meat and seafood; and the food was delicious. The meats were well cooked, the seafood included oysters, scampi, calamari, etc. The dips were excellent, the chips were just right, and... More

We were a group booking and ordered the banquet with seafood. The portions were generous and the staff very warm and friendly. Service was excellent and the out door dining was pleasant. Good selection of Lebanese food, dips and variety of seafood. Will definitely dine there again.

I went on my own on a Saturday night and I had to wait for a little while to get a table, a good indication that a restaurant is well patronised.
