I used to travel to Sydney every fortnight and stay for a few days, i would go to em nabils at least twice every visit. The food is honestly the best food in Australia, the tabouli is incredible as is the baba ganoush, bread, chicken and falafel...(everything really) I loved every thing i tried at em nabils and i am...

Saturday lunch (late) and we had the premises to ourselves. We shared the banquet and enjoyed a range of dips with bread, salad, olives, meats and falafels. We took a goggy bag home as quantities were too much. Flavoursome especially with the sauces and garlic. My son is a regular and this was their first visit since the birth of... More

Food was average. Didn't seem fresh. Waiter was slow, unenthusiastic. Place was empty but plates stayed on our tables for about an hour. A staff member, maybe the owner but a chef at least was smoking right out the front and the room filled with smoke when he open the door. I was half way in the joint and it... More

If I could give 0 stars I would. Literally worst service imaginable. Stormy night, our power went out so we couldn't cook dinner. Ordered from Em Nabils via Eatnow and were told it would be at ours in 70 minutes. I rang when it hadn't arrived and was fobbed off several times being told that it was on its way,... More

The food was really good, perhaps falafel and some other dishes were too salty and a little overcooked for our taste (we were a bunch of Turkish gourmets). The staff was friendly and it was a nice atmosphere. Perhaps interior design lacks some character. Definitely recommend anyone likes meat and middle eastern food!

I thought you can't get better but the l new owner (Nuaf) of the restaurant proven that it can get much better. The Hummus is fantastic Baba Ganush is hust amazing and the garlic source just got better. Highly recommended.

Had delicious Sunday night dinner at Nabil's last night. Varied dishes which were all great. My favourite is the fried eggplant. Alex and her staff do an amazing job. Many thanks. Always a treat.

We made a last minute decision to eat here last night - a great decision. The fit out is far from flash, but it's clean, open and spacious. The service was friendly and efficient and the food arrived quickly which kept the toddler happy - as did the replenished complimentary supply of "yummy" Lebanese bread. The food -amazing! We had...

Dear Valued Clients a Authentic Lebanese Restaurant is undergoing some major changes. The most important change being the re naming of my restaurant. From the 18th of November the name will be changed to EM NABIL'S LEBANESE KITCHEN.This is in honour of your chef and my mother. Still the same owner, same great food, same number 1 Lebanese chef in Oz (40 years exp) and same welcoming and attentive service. Look forward to seeing you soon.Nabil Your Host
