Description: Welcome to MEZZE ROUSE HILL where our philosophy is simple - Serve great tasting MOROCCAN and MEDITERRANEAN inspired FOOD in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Mezze Rouse Hill is a landmark for all locals living in the area and also surrounding suburbs. We cater for all ages and kids just love the atmosphere as we are surrounded by parks and play areas. This keeps the kids occupied while the adults can enjoy a relaxing breakfast, lunch or dinner accompanied by a drink or two. Mungerie was a typical Australian homestead with a verandah on three sides and a lean to verandah at the back. It was a lathe and plaster built house with timber weatherboard walls and an iron roof. Originally just four rooms coming off a central hallway with a detached kitchen out the back which now forms Mezze Rouse Hill. So come and join us at our restaurant to enjoy the history of Rouse Hill.

“Never Again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Sat outside on the verandah, the service was so slow it was basically non-existent. The kids meals came 1 hour before our meals which were all mezze plates . The outside lights whwere we were weren't working so you could barely see what was on your table however we were given 3 different reasons for this. Then the rain came, soaked us , soaked the plates that had been served, in the middle of the rain pouring in our other plates were served much to the laughter of the table next to us who were all lined up against the wall trying to avoid the rain. We were soaked the meal was soaked but hey we were offered a 10% discount even though we couldn't finish the meals due to water logging. What a joke will never go back !

“Best Moroccan Tagine in the West”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Amazing food in a secluded street in Sydneys Rouse Hill. You wouldnt know it was there unless someone told you about it!
Food was great, service although a little slow always with a smile. We came at a busy lunch time so make sure you have ample time to sit and enjoy- not ideal if someone is rushed for a quick bite.
Price was great for what you got.

Will definantly be returning!

We have eaten here on several occasions and have NEVER been disappointed. The food is amazing and the service, although slow is great. I'd highly recommend Meze Me but book first!!!

“A hit and then a miss”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The first time I went to Meze Me I was really impressed and told everyone about the food. I booked to have a nice lunch on the weekend and was looking forward to the targine. I'd had it last time and it so tasty. I ordered the chicken targine and our entire table waited ages for our food. The waiter was very apologetic for how long we were waiting, which indicates it was longer than normal.

When the food was finally brought out we were faced with a water based dish. The cous cous was swimming along with the other ingredients. I asked why it was so watery and after a few minutes someone came over with the story its a soup based targine. ????, soup based, ok but this was water based. The chef came out and asked what was wrong and preceeded say this was how targines should be.

I have been to many places across Sydney that specialise in targine dishes and none of them were "soup based" or just plain watery. Clearly the liquid ratio of the dish was incorrect,the flavours were not there at all and the dish was taken away. I was still charged for the dish even though I didn't eat it. Meze Me will be taken off the list of our places to eat.

“Book ahead for a table”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

We had a ladies catch up here for a breakfast last Saturday morning.

The staff are helpful, we ordered some food and they even suggested that we order the banquet which would be cheaper for us and the same food.

We ordered a breakfast banquet and there was even food left over. Plates of food arrived with very generous servings. All the food was hot and delicious. They even offered to wrap the leftovers for us to take home.

I could not recommend Meze Me highly enough!!

Food = amazing
Coffee = great
Service = good


What more could you ask for? A great location....Meze me has that too. Overlooking a park, plenty of parking.

I will definitely be back.

One recommendation: make a reservation. This place gets full.
