“Delicious Food & Great Decor!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This restaurant has fantastic decor, from the open kitchen to the interesting firepits and beautiful inside decorations.
The menu has plenty of choices for all tastes. My friend and I had a tagine and a lamb pizza. Both were absolutely delicious! So tasty, decent sized meals, I can't rave about the flavour enough!
Washed down with a couple of yummy cocktails.
Friendly accommodating staff.
Have booked again for my partners birthday, can't wait to try something else from the menu!

“Food was great, service was terrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

The food was fantastic as it often is, however it wasn't worth the wait. It was busy but having to wait almost 2 hours for the mains is too long.

The wait would have been acceptable if the staff were friendly. All the people at my table of 8 only had bad things to say about the run-ins they had with the staff. They were rude, abrupt, creating an uninviting atmosphere. One two occasions throughout the night we contemplated leaving, had it not been for the bad weather.

My apologies for the negative experience which definitely requires further investigation on my part. Could you please let me know when you have dined with us and whether it was a Gold Coast venue. Waiting for food for such a long time is very much a rare occurrence here, and rude wait staff are simply not tolerated so I will be taking it further upon the receipt of information form you.

“Great Mediterranean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

This was the second time we have lunched here and the food has been consistently terrific . We shared lunch specials and tapas dishes with friends and they were all good. Be careful not to order too much , however,as for some strange reason which they cannot adequately explain they will not let you take leftovers home.

“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This was busy on a Monday night which has to be a good sign. Good buzz but not too loud. Excellent service. Good food. Good value. I would happily return.

“Great atmosphere, good food but not sure we'd return”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We went on a Saturday night and it was quite busy but the interior and atmosphere were pleasant. Ordered two entrees to share and mistakenly ordered two mains at the same time (as you usually do). The sweet potato falafels were good and we were informed that the lamb kofte would take a while. Then our mains actually arrived moments before the kofte. The food was fine but not spectacular. Glad we tried but will be inclined to try Pasha's Turkish Restaurant next.
