Discovered this restaurant in 2010 and have been a regular visitor since. My love of Lebanese food was from growing up with quite a number of Lebanese friends. This restaurant is the closest I have found in Sydney to replicating the delicious home made meals I recall from many moons ago.

The chicken skewers is my one regular staple. Incredibly tender and beautifully marindaded where the marinade has really been saturated by the meat.

The food, regardless of how busy the restaurant is, is served quickly and where required, hot. The price is on par with the many other Lebanese restaurants in Sydney that I have tried.

The service has always been kind and attentive.

Had the set menu great value you will not leave hungry. If you enjoy the hum of a busy and happy restaurant which just happens to have the best Turkish delight in Australia combined with fantastic friendly and great professional yet not pretentious service then you will love this place. The decor is in theme with the style restaurant.The set menu is about $32 includes breads sides and tea or coffee and is a good way to try about half the menu in one go

Haven't been for a while but found the food delicious, good value and waiter attentive and helpful. The chairs and tables are nothing special, the place is clean but a bit down at heel and the exterior of shop needs a bit of smartening up, but don't be deterred.

We've been regular patrons of the Prophet for the last 10 years, eating there at least four or five times a year.

The food is always excellent, and they make all of the dishes on the premises using the freshest ingredients. The Hummus and Baba Ghanoush are second to none, and the Beef Shawarma and Shish Kebabs are some of the best I've ever eaten (even in the Middle East).

Service is always warm and friendly, and the small restaurant is cosy and intimate. The Prophet really is a Surry Hills institution.
