Our first visit to this restaurent and we were pleased with the informality of the place the interesting smallish menu and food was flavoursome and served with a smile. We were probably much older than the general clientele but we felt quite comfortable and noise levels fine so we could talk without a hearing problem!

In a perfect world I'd get Kamel to delivery dinner every night and the amazing house made kebabs for lunch. The crumbed goats cheese is an absolute favourite. The scallops are amazing, Hugh Hamilton wine compliments the food perfectly. Tagine of the day is usually delish. I had my hens night dinner in one of the rooms upstairs.

I've been to Kamel many times now, and every time the food has been fabulous. The capsicum with feta was sensational, the pilaf and duck is wonderful, would highly recommend this spot for dinner. The sharing plates are well sized and you can keep ordering more! The chocolate doughnuts with ice cream for dessert are a favourite, make sure to... More

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.

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.
