Sometimes, just occassionally, you find an honest restaurant in food, serive and in the ethos of its owner. All that fuses in El Karim, and its a refreshing surprise on the palate and on the brain.

Dined there just before a movie, and ordered Fattoush salad and 2 mains - oh, no, too much just have the one main, the lebanese shepherd's pie, and save your money, we were informed. And so it was, enough to fill our stomachs and less than $20 each.

I have eaten here before with the family, and the banquet was divine. But note, they use a fair splash of freshly squeezed lemon, and plenty of cumin and various spices, so the food tangs in the mouth. Delicious!!

Took Lebanese baklava to the movies to savour the last moment. I am going again soon with the family, and yes, for another banquet to this clean, friendly and honest gem in Lindfield, on the highway, next door to the Roseville cinema.

From the moment we walked in, we had a wonderful time. Genuinely nice and professional service, exquisite fresh Lebanese food, and reasonable prices, with our meal costing $50 for two. Highly recommended.

As a long standing patron of some 30 years standing, I can attest that the El Karim restaurant has maintained a reputation for top value, excellent quality, with generous servings of traditional Lebanese dishes. Fadi Constantine, the restaurant owner, and his friendly staff put a lot of effort into ensuring that guests are well looked after and leave the restaurant well satisfied - no wonder the restaurant is a top favourite for locals. BYO wine is welcome with affordable, good quality wine also available off the menu. Bookings for one of two sittings commencing at 6 pm (Tuesday through Saturday) is highly recommended.
