There are many Middle Eastern restaurants in Sydney that serve truly excellent food, but Almond Bar stands out for its Syrian cuisine; the food is not just superlative but different from what is served in other restaurants of this kind. Furthermore, the wine list is far better than that of most top Middle Eastern restaurants, and the cocktails are good,... More

We were going to stop in for a nibble on Saturday night but it was heaving and we were out of luck. We booked for the Sunday instead and went very hungry. Service was fantastic, helpful and fast. ..but not so fast we felt rushed. Food was...well...we ate like hungry wolves and it was so freaking delicious we couldn't even... More

Great little restaurant with excellent quality middle eastern food. We've been to many middle eastern restaurants before & they all serve similar dishes. This restaurant has different dishes & the quality is excellent. A pity however that the restaurant is so small as it was crowded & noisy on the night we dined there. Nevertheless I still plan to return... More

Hadn't planned to visit here but the first restaurant we tried was full so we stumbled across Almond and are so glad we did. Everything was perfect, the hosting was great and very friendly, the food was delicious, could not ask for more. Would go back again and again if I was a local, loved it.

This small restaurant has a very pleasant ambience. There are 2 seatings, at 6pm and 9 PM. I suggest you choose the latter, so as you can take your time. There are plenty of Gluten Free options and they will oblige by making adjustments to make the dish GF. Four of us shared 2 dips, 2 mezes, 1 salad ,... More

We had one of the banquets as it was too difficult to pick which dishes we wanted. Everything we ate was delicious. The food was so good that we bought their recipe book to try making the dishes at. Would definitely go back again.

My only complaint is that i shouldn't have went to Mr Crackles for lunch prior to dinner. This place is somewhere you need to bring a group of 4 to 6. Wish the two of us could have ate some more. And had food envy watching the other tables share more dishes. Thanks to the "Almond Bar" for great original... More

This place is just perfect! Our entree was very delicious ( plate of different dips and of course almonds!) and the main course which was lamb kebab was cooked to perfection.It was one of the best lamb kebabs I have had in Australia! At the end, we bought a jar of almond as well to keep the memory of the... More

Had a lovely dinner at Almond recently with a small group of friends and I must say it was enjoyable. As mentioned previously, parking is a bit of a nuisance but unfortunately that is a common issue in the inner city. The restaurant is small, and the table settings are quite different from the norm - I like it !... More
