We went there at a party arranged for about sixty people by a friend. The food choice was not ours nor did we know the price of the different items served to us. But the food was plentiful. It is a Lebanese restaurant and serves Middle eastern food like different types of kebabs, tabouleh, dips - baba ganoush, haomos and... More

This place is great for families - large enough for groups, small enough for fun, interesting decor. We tried a selection of starters: baba ghannouj (smoky perfection, doesn't get much better), lahme bi ajeen (good lamb/herb/spice mix with crispy filo), fatayer (home-style veg pastries, very authentic) and FOTR (lovely mix of mushrooms sautéed in a sweet/spicy sauce). We also had... More

We went for a birthday party on a Saturday night and had the banquet. The drinks service was very slow which was disappointing as the food was very good. The tables very cramped and they were very busy which made it very noisy, but overall we all had a good time. I would suggest if having the banquet to not... More

The decor, the service, the food, the wine, all excellent! The locals are lucky to have such a great place for middle eastern food! It was worth me driving out of a Melbourne City hotel to go here! Thanks

We were invited to a 21st that was held at this restaurant. It is a large restaurant and there were several other functions going on, as well as other diners in smaller groups. It was very busy and a little squashy, but that's ok as the atmosphere was loud and fun. The food was served in a timely fashion- it... More

Fantastic service, great atmosphere and great food. What more could you ask for? Accommodated dietary requirements with no fuss. Had not been here before but will definitely return!

We have been several times in different size groups and the food that comes out of the kitchen leaves you tantalised and wanting more, the wait staff are there when you need them but not in your face. Go for the banquet everytime, you won't be disappointed !

Had dinner here last Saturday with a group of 21 to celebrate my birthday. Have been here many times over the years and the service and food has never altered. Always great. Some of the group were vegetarians and they thoroughly enjoyed their meals as we did ours. The rest of us had the open banquet and there was more... More

Busy, loud, caters to groups, has good food and passable service. It’s a reminder of how Lebanese food used to be before some idiot decided “traditional meze” was a more profitable way to go. It is, but you have to give more food than most places do. “Lots of it” was a phrase that traditionally went with meze. This restaurant... More

I speak Hindi, I eat alot of Indian food. I cook alot of Indian food. This place nails it. Once of the best in Melbourne. The service is excellent and the portion sizes are generous. So often in Indian restaurants they are smaller but here they were excellent. It's a little pricey but you do get what you pay for... More
