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.

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 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

I was recommended the restaurant by a colleague for a business lunch with Clients. The restaurant has a nice interior and a great atmosphere. My guests and I were initially a little unsure as to what to order our waitress mentioned a lunch special which we all decided to order. Wow what a great selection we received! A range of... More
