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

we were here in a group of ten so the banquet was the way to go. The food just kept coming! The dips were delicious, the chicken and meats tender and the serves very generous. It is an old-fashioned sort of place with a belly dancer, but if it works, why change, and it is obviously working.

Whilst it's quite pricey, it's excellent food. We had around 6 entrees and 2 mains and it came to around $55 per person - no alcohol or soft drink. It is in the entertainment book which is why we came but we walked away very happy. Service is fantastic and lots of room between tables, they don't squish you in.... More

From the time we arrived until we left you couldn't fault the friendly service. We had the Open Banquet $55 pp - all you could eat, and eat and eat. We had Entrees, Mains and Desserts and then we were offered more dishes from the menu. My hungry boys couldn't resist. My daughter requested gluten free and was accommodated. Food... More

I have been here a few times and the $55 banquet is the best way to go. It comes with a huge variety of Lebanese food and you can order more of whatever you like. Staff are always welcoming and on friday nights they have a belly dancer show.
