Kamel provides great, innovative Middle Eastern food. I have had a number of dinners here and have always walked away totally satisfied with quality of food as well as value for money. Highly recommended!

In the picturesque suburb of Albert Park, Melbourne, a group of us enjoyed a lovely evening at Kamel Restaurant, They serve mezze style middle eastern cuisine. The decor is burgundy in colour with huge middle eastern light shades that add to the experience. I'd go again. The price was $55 per head and included a glass of wine each

First time eating at this restaurant in the very fashionable and up market Victoria Rd in Middle Park. The restaurant is made up of four rooms divided between two floors. Our lunch was for a friend's birthday and we had our own room that seated eight to ten people. Service was by young people who were pleasant and very helpful. The food at Kamel is described as Middle Eastern and in truth it does draw on Lebanese, Greek and Turkish cuisines with a modern twist. Most dishes are prepared for sharing and we ended up ordering about a dozen dishes. Some of them were outstanding: the scallops (beautifully cooked), chicken on skewers (absolutely delicious); duck confit in pastry and some interesting dips. We also ordered a number of vegetarian dishes and salads. These were freshly presented but my wife felt that some of them lacked something to bring the flavours together. There are some decent wines by the glass and bottle as well as jugs of 'middle eastern' cocktails. Our meal was on Mothers Day so the place was crowded but reports suggest that Kamel is popular most days and most of the time. Definitely worth a second visit.

Okay. Never been here before. Never eaten middle eastern. However our friends like this place and give it a great rap so was happy to try it. Personally I didn't like it. I found the food and flavours not to my liking. However - the restaurant has a great vibe. It's small and cramped and loud - but it works okay. The staff were very attentive. The wine list was very good. This type of food is a personal choice and if it's your thing then give it a go.

This is a great little place. Book early as it can get very busy. Go with a group and share everything. The food is tasty, healthy and there is a selection of very different dishes to please even the fussiest eater. It's a huge hit will all the locals!
