We have been eating at Rowda Y-Habibi for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. Great fresh, well priced food. Not the fanciest of restaurants, but if you want good honest, great tasting Lebanese food then you can't go past this place. The banquets are excellent. Love it!!!

Have been here a few times lately. So delicious. So reasonably priced. Such generous serves. It's worth getting some eggplant with your falafel - adds to the deliciousness. Really friendly staff. So welcoming.

Recently shared a banquet here with work colleagues and their friends and it was really delicious. We couldn't do it justice and had quite a few unfinished dishes. That was not a reflection on the freshness, flavours of food or quality...just the generous serves were more than we could manage. Was here years ago and think it was even more... More

Been in business 36 years, there is a reason for it. The food here is as traditional as you will get anywhere. The food is all fresh and all handmade. I am a big fan of lebanese done right, the food here is on par with any of the high end lebanese restaurants in Sydney or out at Parramatta. Highly... More

Great value and BYO (bottle shop across the street if required) get a felafel with everything; they are inexpensive very filling and the best in Sydney. Plenty of seating available if you are bringing a crowd.

Had the buffet -- not a fan of the food selection. Very poor, especially for the price! The service was good and the people friendly. Probably won't go back again.
