Although this long-standing exotic restaurant on Bridge Road doesn't shout it's presence along the brightly lit Street, it deserves to. The spacious interior is nicely decorated in a warm and rather homely exotic style, with food and service that match. The servers are lovely - very helpful, pleasant and respectful. We didn't wait long for anything and our food was... More

This turned out to be a magnificent dining experience. The establishment is quite large, and despite being totally booked it was still possible to hold a conversation ... sometimes a problem these days. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. Minor variations to a comprehensive menu were accepted cheerfully. Most of us chose a modified banquet option: the service was... More

A group of us flew from Adelaide to eat here. The food was brilliant. The service and atmosphere is the best. The Mahalabya was simply superb

I love this cuisine, and I was very impressed. The restaurant itself is lovely and comfortable, with very cool Jerome-inspired murals and a lovely waitstaff. The food is truly excellent. Fresh, flavorful and creative.

We shared the banquet with a group of friends on a Saturday night. Everyone enjoyed the delicious fresh food, friendly efficient service, great atmosphere set with wall paintings and energetic belly-dancer. A perfect mix for a fun night for a group of friends or family. Reasonably priced especially as it is BYO wine. A typical Melbourne dining experience.

We had a large family luncheon to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The owner looked after us very well with superb food and service. The appetizers were excellent--fresh ingredients, well-made tabbouleh, hummus, etc. Beautiful mains followed. We decided to order the "banquet meal" and we were not disappointed. the lamb fillets were superb, the snapper with tahini sauce was perfect, as... More

The restaurant takes you on a wonderful journey belly dancer and all, but the best part is the fresh delicious authentic lebanese food which captures your palate. This is the best place to share beautiful mezzo plates... More

We visited Kanzaman again for the first time in a few years and our experience was the same as it has always been - good food, friendly service and a great atmosphere. I called around lunchtime to get a booking for that evening which was a Saturday and the hostess took my booking and told me she'd look forward to... More

Went there as was recommended by friends, only to be disappointed. Food was very bland, entertainment was good, but that's it.

A family run business that goes out of their way to accommodate all appetites. We had a vegetarian and so they suggested to alter their portions to ensure everyone was happy. We dined on a Saturday night and a belly dancer performed at 9pm which was a bit of fun. We had locals, interstate guests and fine diners in our... More
