An oasis in the area. We were walking back to melbourne and ran into this very nice and cozy little restaurant. Great food & warm service. Highly recommended. :)

Make sure you're hungry as the portions are hearty and it's just too good to even consider leaving any! We had the banquet for 2 and it was incredible, I really can't fault a single dish. Service was a bit slow on the wine (15 minute wait) and water wasn't topped up but the food was so good you can... More

The staff were most obliging and the food was excellent, although we didn't stretch the menu. Another good wine list.

We loved this very special restaurant serving Middle Eastern and Northern African food. The owner is welcoming and friendly as are the wait staff..we didnt get to meet the chef but from what comes out of his kitchen we love him. We had the Mashi ..beautifully roasted red peppers stuffed with spiced beef, pinenuts, currents with feta on top. Followed... More

The banquet menu for our group was extensive and very tasty. As a person who has a list of dietary requirements (dairy, gluten, onion free), I was very pleasantly surprised at how well my meal was catered. I called ahead of the meal to ask how they could accommodate me and nothing was too challenging.

We have now visited this place three time I think, and every time we are pleasantly surprised with the service, food and ambiance, without exception the food is fantastic. Since our last visit I noticed this time the place has had a makeover, and that has been done very tastefully.

Kamel is a popular restaurant, and for good reason. Great staff and quality interesting delicious food. Plenty of share dishes and banquets to choose from. If you haven't been, do yourself a favour and try it. If you know it, go back and treat yourself. The food is Middle Eastern/North African.

Make sure you book to avoid disappointment as this Middle-Eastern restaurant is nearly always packed. There were five of us for dinner which was perfect for sharing the delicious dishes. My favourite was the scallops on artichoke purée, however all the dishes we ordered were exceptional. This wine list was extensive and very impressive. The waiting staff were very friendly... More

This was our first visit to Kamel and both the food and service far exceeded our expectations. We ordered the banquet and loved everything on it, the food was fresh and had great flavours. Our booking was 7pm Fri night and it was packed, so we were impressed that our food came so quickly. The service was also the best... More
