Emad's has been a long term favorite, I say up front. Really I'd vote for Emads to be known as a National Treasure. I'll keep it simple, and confine my writing pretty much to the experience last night. Only wanted something simple and nutritious for the 2 of us. Only had 90 minutes until the theatre started, albeit the theatre... More

Had to wait over an hour and half and to boot the waiter missed some of the items off our order. Food was alright but for the "experience" would not recommend a visit to anyone.

Our first visit. Have enjoyed many magnificent feasts at our local Middle Eastern restaurants but I think this one takes the cake. As with all of them the Super Banquet is a tad too big for us to eat quite everything on offer, but the quality was absolutely superb and combined with good value for money this place may well...

The food was mouth watering, best Lebanese I've had! We celebrated a friends birthday there in a private cushion room and it was fantastic. Staff were very friendly and the vibe was nice. Defiantly coming back!

Enjoyed a very pleasant Friday evening dinner for four. We ate a mix of dips, salads, chicken skewers plus the omelette which was a highlight. BYO available. Efficient, friendly service at decent value for money.

We had a large group of girls for a hen's night out and the owner was very helpful and accommodating. The food was great and very reasonably priced at $35 a head for more food than we could all eat. We were able to take our own alcohol and no corkage was charged. The atmosphere was ideal with booth seating... More
