I've been a regular here for some years. It has really well cooked, innovative Middle Eastern food. I highly recommend this for a good night out. The only negative is that it can be noisy at times.

A very busy place on a Friday night but the food was superb. The banquets were extensive and flavoursome. Service was excellent. A great place to visit and enjoy the cuisine.

A varied menu with some different dishes from other middle eastern restaurants. The shared platter of meat was very well presented and cooked. Service very good. I don't usually have dessert but we all tried something on the menu and were pleasantly surprised. Very reasonably priced.

We knew very little about this restaurant except for the fact it served Turkish and Middle Eastern food. We had a very good variety of the meze, a number of small dishes for starters. We particularly liked the sizzing prawn hotplate,the Hellim and fig, Jajik (cucumber dip) and the Wild Za'taar dip. For mains (again we shared) and the ones... More

We had the one of the house banquets and this was a serious amount of delectable varieties of cuisine from their chef. Customers are made to feel that they are valued and the service is excellent. Maybe it was Xmas but guess that bookings are a good idea for this very popular venue.

We got the 'top' banquet, $65/head. The food was delicious, but the serves were almost bite sized. All in all it felt like almost a full meal, not a banquet. A couple of us left partly hungry. It also didn't help that the desert came for 2 to share, and the apple tea was micro-sized (espresso cup or smaller). The... More

When we got home our ears were ringing and we had sore throats from trying to talk. But what I really hate is having the tables so close that the serving staff kept on bumping into me. I didn't really like the food, we had the $55 banquet, there was lots of food but I didn't like it. The minced... More

This was the first time we had been to this restaurant but it wont be the last. The aromas when you walk in are amazing. We were booked for 8.00pm and arrived a little early but no problem we were seated straight away. The service was very good and out orders were taken quickly. The food was very good with... More
