The night we visited it was early in the week. Lots of things were off and it was also freezing cold. I was disappointed but probably its better on a weekend evening.

Had not been to Sydney for 3 years so our first dinner was our fave Lebanese. Did not disappoint. Have been eating here for 30 years and we still love it. One of the things we miss most since leaving Sydney.

We moved from Dubai to sydney after having spend nearly 25 years in Dubai. Emad's dinner has been the best lebanese food we had ever since we got here. Such a pretty interior and finger licking food! Surprised to find this gem. Will go back soon to try the banquet!

After 30 years of the most outstanding service and food, I'm finally on Tripadvisor to give the review they deserve. The best, atmosphere, food and friendly faces. Honest, affordable dining.

Been here a couple of times and it's the best Lebanese food I've ever had and the price is not over the top The service is great, and I have been informed by the waiter that there for over 40 years. Well worth the visit.

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
