We underestimated the popularity of this place which is right on our doorstep yet we hadn't tried it. Still, four of us turned up early on a Saturday night and managed to get a great table.
We were hosting the other couple in our neighbourhood so the pressure was on!
There's a lot of items on the menu that aren't our usual fayre, so we took the waitress's advice and went for the tasting menu (or 'banquet' perhaps).
As for wine, there's plenty of choice. You've got to go with the Lebanese option here though, surely.
We were not disappointed. Each course better than the last.
The honey halloumi was superb. Best halloumi I've tasted in Sydney.
Delighted all round. Our reputation as reliable Surry Hills sherpas endures.

Wed heard good things about this restaurant but were very disappointed. Apparently there has been a lot of change in staff and we probably went there after the change! Cheerful attentive service but the food was unimpressive and the prices quite high. Only decent thing was the starter dips with lovely bread chips.

I had the banquet menu, there were 25 of us in all and there was a very generous amount of food! Each course was more delicious than the last. Highly recommend the beef, fartoush salad and the haloumi as stand outs. Henri was also super helpful! they were also able to cater to individual food requirements which was very helpful!

Food was exceptional! Myself and my partner shared about 6 dishes including desserts between the two of us. Tasty middle eastern flavours throughout all the dishes. Lovely ambience as well. Would definitely recommend

I met friends for dinner while on a business trip. We enjoyed share plates and some fine wine. The wine selection is fantastic, offering reasonably priced local, Australian, wine and an interesting sounding range of other wines ranging from Italian to Israeli.
The service was friendly and attentive and the meals were delicious. Our waitress kindly advised us that a certain portionwas slightly small and she was right but it was worth it. It was great that this info was offerred as help rather than an"upsell" moment.
