“Fatima's-my personal favourite for 35 years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

For as long as I can remember, Fatima's has been the place I go to for serious soul food. The crunch of their felafel and the searing intensity of their toum garlic sauce with chicken are some of the highlights. Great kibbe, sensational baba ganoush and a great variety of vegetarian dishes makes for a rounded dining experience. There isn't a better spinach pie in Sydney. And if a 5yr old dressed as Superman pops up with some bread in a basket make sure you tip him generously. And it is very reasonably priced. Try to leave room for one pastry - ask for an opera house - filo with a 4 way split roof over pistachios etc

“The best Lebanese restaurant in Sydney hands down!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

Fatima's lebanese restaurant in Surry Hills is just so fantastic, the food is absolutely home made on the premises and so delicious, you will not eat better falafels anywhere else! Great service, great belly dancer On a Saturday night just for extra fun, and the prices are very reasonable too - highly recommended by me and all of my friends and family too !!

“Best Lebanese food in central Sydney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

To be fair, there is cheaper Lebanese food in Sydney of the same high quality. But this can only be found out in the suburbs where the majority of Lebanese immigrants live. As a local, I love the food at Fatima's at any time of the day. It's an institution and as a visitor, you should go and experience a taste of multicultural Sydney. It's not all about overpriced seafood by the harbour...
