Great place to go before theatre

Have been here many times with the same group of friends before going to Riverside Theatre. We always have the shared platter with dips, kebabs and calamari. Never disappoints. Must come back here one night when the belly dancers are on.

We stumbled across El-Phoenician restaurant along "Eat Street" in Parramatta on a busy Saturday night. With dozens of restaurants on offer, this one was buzzing inside and out with satisfied looking customers. Polished organisation and slick service soon meant that we were savoring generous portions of classic Middle Eastern flavors: homous, tabouli, spiced lamb and chilli prawns. All this was... More

I knew this place was good, but an unplanned visit to this Lebanese restaurant after work was just a joy.

The breads with dips were fresh and tasty, the meat skewers well proportioned... More
