I've been coming here for many years and their breakfast menu in particular is excellent, in fact I believe it's the best in Sydney. Their breakfast tagines are to die for and their pancakes are a sight to behold! Bring your appetite as the servings...More

Great menu for any taste and generous servings make this a favorite when visiting Sydney. Best enjoyed for a slow long breakfast to savor some unique flavours.

We went here for brunch. Great food in family restaurant. Lots of nice things on the menu. Friendly staff. No negatives. Then a walk thru lovely Balmain to the quayside to catch the ferry to circular quay. Need to book

Kazbah is well above average compared to other restaurants that serve Middle-Eastern cuisine. The food is delicious and extremely attractively presented — even the water pitchers are a delight. The service is good. Recommended.

Kazbah has a great range of middle eastern foods which can be shared. Its a good place for weekend lunches but it does get crowed and its sometimes hard to get a table. Great décor, great food and good service. Worth the trip

If you are looking for something a bit different for a group brunch this is a great, lively place! The food is massive - never try to eat one of the "pan cakes" by yourself!!! Lunch is also good and dinner is really quite fancy!

I only eat breakfast at Kazbah so not sure about lunch or dinner. It looks very casual and you can call to clarify this.
