We went to Fatima's with a group of 28 people and had booked out a private room for the super banquet. It is perfect for groups and is BYO no corkage. The decor is tired but the atmosphere is fun and the belly dancer was...More

Invited by friends to join them for dinner. Was a bit worried when walked in and saw tired decor, which may date back to when restaurant established in 1969. Then again thought, food must be good otherwise couldn't possibly survive in this part of Surry...More

I don't know if this place has new and inexperienced management or what but it has declined in its quality since I was there 18 months ago. The bread tasted as though it was frozen....it arriving in a freezer bag didn't help. The vine leaf...More

We had dinner here on a hot summer's evening. The place seemed unfair conditioned and so I sweated during dinner. The waitress was a bit inexperienced and it took a while to get the order right. The meat platter was good - nice dips and...More

Good quality Lebanese food, and cheap. Decor a bit tired out the back, but they do have a belly dancer on Fri & Sat nights.. Unlicensed but there's a bottle shop nearby.

I read the mixed reviews here with great interest. We had dinner here last night. Our Nepalese waiter was very attentive. However the atmosphere was revolting. The place could do with a good clean. And the other wait staff look like family members who would...More

After reading online that Fatimas was one of Sydney's best byo's, we decided to check it out. Disaster. When we were seated there were old beer bottles scattered on the chair that no one had bothered to clean up. This should've been our warning. We...More
