Met with friends for a banquet celebration. The ambience was conducive to an intimate catchup and was very relaxing. We enjoyed a glass of shiraz in comfortable chairs before sitting for our banquet. The restaurant quickly filled but the background chatter did not impede our conversations. An excellent venue and very pleasant staff.

I had the Lebanese fish an chips, which was luscious piece of fish grilled so the fish was golden and crispy on a bed of oven baked potatoes with a fatuous type salad. My colleagues had the platter for 2, which was a tower of spinach, cheese and meat pastries and grilled meat accompanied by dips and salad. Lovely host as well.

Love this restaurant. The food is varied, fresh, well prepared, tasty, good value and authentic. Particularly live the mezze and the grills. The drinks list is good with reasonably priced wines.

If you can get one, the booths by the window are spacious enough for 6 and comfortable.

We go regularly for casual, business and family events and it's always good.

The food is amazing. We have eaten here a few times now and have been as impressed each time. The share platters are our go-to option and are brilliant for 2 people. Lovely spot right by the river and even though its a slight walk from say Southbank/Crown...you wont be sorry you made the trek!

This is a busy restaurant serving Lebanese food. It is quite a loud place with a younger clientele of late teenagers and persons in their early 20s. When we were there was a birthday party of teenagers and the place quietened down when they left.
The food is OK but is not really exceptional. We ordered the Mezza banquet for 4 of us (cost $55 per person) so we had a chance to sample several dishes. They fist bring our a trio of dips and two salads. The trip of dips is an amazingly small portion for 4 persons – I thought they would bring 4 of these but they only brought 1 for 4 persons. The number of dishes served may sound like good value but actually the quality is not really there for most dishes that are prepared.
My suggestion is that you are better off ordering from the main menu in the standard way rather than having the “banquet”.
