Fantastic service and food

The chilli garlic dip was so nice and every table had a basket of bread to go with it. We also shared kibbi for entrée, The chilli fish and combination shawarma were our mains and there was so much food we were really stuffed.

The food is typical Australian/Lebanese fare. With 8 of us in our party, we ordered a banquet which provided plenty of dips, salad and flat breads to start and chicken and lamb kebabs, lamb kafta and chicken wings as the main. we didn't go hungry but the food lacked that wow factor and for $50 each just a little disappointing....

Popped in lateish on a Saturday night. The waitresses and waiters were very attentive and professional. We had the combination platter and it was fantastic!! Seafood was an added bonus as it is not usual traditional Lebanese food, it was cooked perfect.

Our regular group visited recently on a Friday. We had pre booked a banquet menu with a drinks package - both excellent value. The service was first class and the food well presented. We arrived a little early which wasn't a problem for the staff. The venue quickly filled up with a number of groups enjoying lunch. We finally left... More

we ordered the 50$ banquet. The banquet started out well woth the salads and dips but took way too long to bring out the meats. One of the waitresses was extremely rude literally dropping the skewers on our plates. The meats were so salty you either had to rub them with lemon or have a sip of water(or a soft... More

I met a friend here for lunch based on Trip Advisors reviews and was not dissapointed. We had the lunch special which was plenty for $29 per head. And a generous glass of wine. The service was excellent and the atmosphere elegant. Perfect for a girls catchup. I Would love to go for dinner to see the Belly dancers!

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.
