The cuisine is Turkish/Lebanese. Kazbah is hugely popular for Sunday brekkie in Balmain. I have only been to dinner recently (ages ago I had birthday brekkie here and it was perfect... a baked eggs and spicy tomato dish). Dinner spans from early 'til late so...More

This is a great Middle Eastern restaurant with an authentic and appealing décor and fabulous food. We loved the quirky water jugs and the waiter's skill in filling our glasses. We both enjoyed the "breakfast" dish of Spicy Lamb Mince (served with hommus and pine...More

Great menu for any taste and generous servings make this a favorite when visiting Sydney. Best enjoyed for a slow long breakfast to savor some unique flavours.

We went here for brunch. Great food in family restaurant. Lots of nice things on the menu. Friendly staff. No negatives. Then a walk thru lovely Balmain to the quayside to catch the ferry to circular quay. Need to book

Kazbah is well above average compared to other restaurants that serve Middle-Eastern cuisine. The food is delicious and extremely attractively presented — even the water pitchers are a delight. The service is good. Recommended.

Kazbah has a great range of middle eastern foods which can be shared. Its a good place for weekend lunches but it does get crowed and its sometimes hard to get a table. Great décor, great food and good service. Worth the trip

I only eat breakfast at Kazbah so not sure about lunch or dinner. It looks very casual and you can call to clarify this.
