The location is clean and modern, well prepared and presented traditional Lebanese food, the place was packed so that is always a great indication. Food was a bit on the expensive side, probably 30% or more than you would pay at one of the Clevland St Eateries in Surry Hills. Bill for two with wine came in at a tad... More

We were a party of 4 celebrating a birthday. We ordered share plates and loved everything. It was a quiet, rainy night early in the week but it didn't deter the quality of the food or the service. We couldn't squash in dessert as we were so full from the delicious mains. We were very happy customers.

Quite disappointing for the price.. We visit the lebanese restaurants in Sydney often and was pleased to discover a local one but the food was pretty average.. You need to up your game guys ..

Three of us out for a quiet dinner on Saturday night. Looking forward to the simplicity of good Lebanese food. We found the atmosphere to be relaxed and inviting. Although it was raining we were quite comfortable out under the canopy overlooking the park. A licensed restaurant with an extensive cocktail menu and an interesting and not too expensive wine...

Fantastic service and food! We have been here several times now and the quality is very good. We normally enjoy the lunch banquet which is made up of several dishes and is also very good value for money.

After reading reviews and hearing such good things about this restaurant we were disappointed. The good: service, wine, the restaurant setting. Average: in general de food was average, we often dine at middle eastern restaurants and in this occasion traditional simple flavours were not there or great. For example the babaganush was tasteless even unseason. Meats the same. Even a... More

I have attended this restaurant a number of times now and each visit has not failed to be a great experience. The selection for their tasting platters are divine.

Whilst the meal was nice it was something that I could've made myself at home with more filling. The location is easy as its next to the park and library. So there is ample parking.
