I can't even tell you the amount of times i have come here for my morning brew. Always consistent coffee and a little extra with a little milk chocolate square to heighten the excellent flavour of the coffee.

We went to get falafel balls to take home. The crew seemed confused and young. The falafel was good, a bit undercooked but still very nice ( never made it home).

Nice, informal and relaxed eating. We had the pittas and they were delicious and very reasonable for the location. Opted for the grilled fish and was not disappointed.

I normally eat anything as long as it's Asian but in an effort to broaden my palate I tried Sabbaba and had the Lamb Kofta plate with tabouli, hummus, babaganoush and pita pockets. Best hummus I've ever had and the pita pockets were way too good. Really enjoyed the Mediterranean flavours and the process of stuffing(and I mean stuffing) each... More

After a nice walk in Bondi, we went here for a lunch. It was packed. You get to have a nice falafel of your choice in a pita pocket. It was delicious quick lunch for $10.90. With all the choices (Sabbaba, South American, Tuscan, Santa Monica, Tunisian, Algerian, ....) I am going to have to return many times till I... More

I have been there today and I didn't expect too much though I followed the good rating. I had the beef shish plate and I really have to sayi that it was really what it should be like. I have been in Arab countries and it was just like being there again. The only thing that was not original was... More

We had the lamb shish in a pitta and the lamb koftas in a pitta (whole meal bread). The salads, sauces etc okay but the meats was cold. Given the meals were served in under 5 minutes, I wonder if the meat wasn't pre-cooked and reheated!

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
