Simple unfussy Lebanese food . The garlic chicken was outstanding as was each of the other dishes we tried. Fast and friendly service, grab a bottle at the pub across the road. If you like Lebanese food try it it's great .

Have been going to the Prophet for years with my wife for great family style Lebanese food. This time had a table for 8 so we had the banquet as it is a substantial meal perfect for sharing. No problems in changing out a couple of dishes for favorites such as fried cauliflower or adding in the green beans with... More

My husband and I enjoy Lebanese food and came to The Prophet after reading the good reviews. We both had the mixed plate, we were both disappointed. I don't understand the 4 and 5 star reviews...I feel misled by them.

I went here for my birthday with my partner. We both ordered the mixed plate at $23, one meat, one vege. It came with a mixture of different dishes off the menu and was so filling!! The Baba Gounage was amazing!!! For $23 I was so full I couldn't even bring myself to have a baklava after, even though I... More

Came across this place by accident and can say the food is outstanding, both in terms of quality and value. Throw in friendly helpful staff and you can't go wrong.

Having not eaten here for over 20 years I was pleasantly surprised that the quality of the food is still right up there and authentic. There were 6 of us and we started with ample servings of babaganoush, tabouleh and humous with fresh flat bread and pickles followed by deep fried meat ladies fingers, stuffed zucchini, fried cauliflower, and falafel....

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
