Spent a night in Woonona and was given a tip by a local that Samaras was the place for very good, Middle Eastern food. We enjoyed Curry Puffs for an entree followed by main courses of chicken and lamb. The servings were generous and the food full of flavour.

This restaurant provides a good value tasty meal of Lebanese origin. You will not leave disappointed. The platters are probably the easiest choice as they give a wide variety of food tastes and cut down on selection time

Busy place. We had shared platers in a group of 4 adults and 3 kids. Food is delicious and service very good. It is BYO and there is a bottle store next door. Would highly recommend.

We chose Samaras after seeing it's fantastic ratings on here. It was a rainy night and the restaurant was full, so we sat under the umbrella outside and only got a tiny bit wet throughout the whole night. We ordered the mixed platter, which was absolutely delicious! The skewers of meat were all cooked beautifully, and paired well with every... More

We visited on a Sunday lunch - the weekday lunch menu not available on weekends - fine for us - we wanted the full choice of meals. Meals are huge so a share platter for one easily enough and it means you can order an extra side or two to suit. Everything we had was nice and they are giving... More

If you like Lebanese food, it's all good here. There is more food than you can eat, and it's very nice.
