Enjoyed a beautiful dinner here on a rainy Friday night. The location in an old Sydney bank building was tastefully decorated to retain the charm of the original features and also orientate you to the modern Lebanese cuisine. We enjoyed sharing several dishes from all...More

1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
