Had not dined at Mecca Bah for a number of years. It was good to see the quality of food & service had not slipped. The menu is expansive and the standard of food and service is high. The flavours of the dishes, although a little bland, complemented the middle theme of the restaurant very well. Although we visited on... More

Very busy evening in a popular restaurant in Fortitude Valley. We decided on shared starters and ordered the hummus with lamb, boureks, chicken pastries and potato cakes. Everything was very nice, hot and came quickly. Our waiter (Brazilian) was excellent. I don't think the food was as good as the last time we ate here (2 years ago as we... More

Warm evening, great food, good company - what was there to complain about? Nothing - it is a lovely setting and I really enjoyed the food - we had sworffish and a seafood tagine - and both were really yummy. It was quite busy so we did have trouble getting water at times or getting another glass of wine but... More

Sad days for Mecca. The entrees were great. Thats where it ends. We ordered the 7 vegetable dish with cous cous, chicken skewers main, and lamb skewers main. The vegetable dish tasted like it came from a can with no seasoning. The chicken skewer was pretty tasteless, and the lamb skewer was tough. It was a very old lamb. For... More

There was a party of 8. 4 of us where visiting from Melbourne. The lay out and décor is great. The choice of food is great. Our main concern was there seemed to be not enough wait staff for the number of diners. The waitress that we had was very good but she appeared to be run off her feet... More

We ate at the Mecca down at the Gold Coast. So decided to give this one a go as well. It did not disappoint! The food was amazing. The reason for the three stars is the service. We were one of a few tables that were sitting inside and it felt like we had been forgotten about at times. When... More

I went to this restaurant tonight with 3 friends to celebrate a birthday. We discovered after we were seated that the restaurant didn't offer split bills. We were served promptly and the food was brought out very quickly, I had a sizzling lamb pizza and it was beautiful. We all enjoyed our dinner and dessert and when the time came... More
