One of Sydney’s highest rated Lebanese restaurants, the El-Phoenician, garnered star-driven praises from The Sunday Telegraph proving it is a contemporary and stylistic showcase with a modernistic approach to an arrestingly innovative Middle-Eastern food styling. The El-Phoenician's artistically executed menu and skillfully developed wine lists have been assembled by pedigreed Chefs and an award winning Sommelier - that are truly bent on awakening your consciousness.

I knew this place was good, but an unplanned visit to this Lebanese restaurant after work was just a joy. The wonderful waiting staff , excellent food, great wine and company within the warm surrounds of the central Parramatta food district added to a very memorable evening. The breads with dips were fresh and tasty, the meat skewers well proportioned... More

One banquet per couple @ $89 per person...($360 for all four of us) food was something you'd get from a kebab stand. Was only given one banquet to share amongst the four of us. Waited 45 mins for our... More

Came here for Mother's Day. Were not informed that we could not sit inside and froze outside. Waited more than an hour to be seated then the manager said he would "look after us" and gave us the most expensive banquet menu. They then charged us for that menu - we assumed they would discount given that they were "looking... More

We went here for valentines day and were a little disappointed, we were expecting a proper menu but no, just a choice of 2 things (valentines day thing), a share platter with dips, breads, chicken and beef on skewers, and a few sides...quite a generous amount but pretty average quality, all for $90/person OR pretty much the same but with...
