Dined with a friend on a cold and windy Melbourne evening, the crusted lamb cutlets are now in my dreams. Well worth a visit.

Amazing menu serving delicious food. The crusted lamb cutlets are to die for, the octopus with grapefruit incredible and the crumbed goats cheese with bread scrumptious. Definitely worth repeat visits

We had a number of starters - all delicious. The tagine of the day was also yummy. The service was prompt and attentive. The atmosphere was great. Will definitely return. If you love middle eastern food you will love Kamel.
