Quality Lebanese food. Friendly efficient service. BYO. The banquet is a delightful selection of authentic Lebanese cooking. The a-la-carte dishes are just excellent. Prices are reasonable, and the restaurant is pleasant to dine-in.

some of the best Kebab's and Lebanese food you will ever eat! Vegetarian plate is very good, great for take away or eat in. All food is made in house fresh!

The food at this dine-in or takeaway Lebanese restaurant is excellent. The service is very friendly. Lots of tradies and families are regulars. The grilled chicken is great. So are the lamb skewers. Good, tasty and healthy food - a place that is reliably excellent.

Ordered takeaway. Vegetarian plate plus a banquet for two with baklava.

1.)Vegetarian plate. Rice and onions were nice. And the baba ganoush was outstanding, had a lovely smokey flavour. But besides that was unimpressed with the plate, which also consisted of deep fried felafel balls (lacked flavour and did not taste fresh), a mixed bean dish (overly strong sauce), and a hommus which tasted average, and should not taste average for the #1 ranked Mediterranean restaurant in Bathurst!

2.) Banquet for two. Banquet basically consisted of the above dish, minus felafel, but with the addition of various meats, prawns, and some deep fried lamb mince balls and also meat pastries. I enjoyed the meat pastry while the deep-fried lamb ball was just ok. Prawns were nice but lacked some seasoning. Chicken was clearly processed chicken and not real chicken meat.

Baklava dessert was poor. Mind you I am probably biased as I have tasted some delicious baklava at Cooma, perfect pastry and syrup with chopped nuts on top!

Overall it was an edible meal but besides the baba ganoush and the sheer amount of food (had enough for each of us to eat again next day), the three of us felt let down. It felt like the way these meals were prepared was to make them quickly - have all the various foods ready-made or ready to deep-fry and then quickly combine them together to form a banquet. In doing this, I was suspect it was more like "ticking off the box" of foods to add, rather than an actual delicious banquet, with care given to flavor and food quality. I did not feel like we got value for money at 90$ for three (30$ per head). Hope this feedback is read by the manger and helps.
