Alas, this restaurant needs to take note. My wife put on a brave face and said that some of the dishes were 'lovely' but I found nothing to praise, although the guy who served us was nice (although our contact was minimal). The meat on the skewers was dry, the vine leaves were served HOT?! The rest of the mezza... More

Shawarma both chicken and lamb were cooked in some sauce I couldn't put my finger on (maybe yogurt) and chicken very overcooked. We have been spoilt by... More

I will firstly say that I have only been on the Coast for 2 years and I am comparing this restaurant to a an amazing Lebanese restaurant in Randwick where for the same banquet price as Arabian Lounge you get course after course of sides and tender meat so soft it seems to have been slow cooked for a whole...

I love this place, the location is excellent facing the water, the staff are extremely helpful and attentive. The price is reasonable . But best of all is the flavours and variety.

I took my teenage daughters for a birthday celebration with a difference. We enjoyed Mocktails, a Cocktail for me, chicken and lamb kebabs (chicken were the best) and watched a Belly Dancer entertain the crowd. The Belly dancer called up people from their tables to bellydance with her. A lot of embarrassed men and also two of my girls joined... More

I have been to the restaurant on various occasions. Each time the service has always been good, but food quality can vary, and size of servings. Best Value is the Banquet. .

I'm so surprised this place has had bad reviews... I love it! Recently on a holiday to The Entrance, my friend and I wanted to try something different so we stumbled in to the Arabian Lounge. We received friendly service, the atmosphere was terrific and the food was delicious. The total bill was $50 odd dollars for the both of... More

This restaurant deserves not even half a star. Me and my family went here for dinner the other night. It was a disappointing night after dining in this restaurant. Me and my partner are both a fan of lebanese food but this does not come close to the expectation we have developed throughout the years. It was the food itself... More
