Tucked away in Darlinghurst is this compact but delightfully atmospheric restaurant. Wonderful staff who are knowledgable and friendly with a charming smile. Leave the selection up to them and you will always be delighted. We were a two family party of eight including four children of ages 12 to 14 and we all had a ball. Loved it.

This place has great food and does an great job in such a small space- all the dishes we shared were excellent and although full the setting was very intimate and friendly. Only challenge was sitting in a restaurant on chairs without backs for too long - this is such a trend in Sydney restaurants and for those of us... More

We had an excellent time in this small restaurant. Our welcome was warm, the service was excellent and the food delightful. My daughter is gluten intolerant and this was catered for with a wide variety of options. I look forward to returning when I am next in Sydney

Service is friendly & welcoming & the food is very tasty. It's the first time I've eaten Syrian food so I have to take it that it's very traditional food. Well worth the visit, prices are good. Make a booking but it's totally worth trying this quaint place.

The food is perfect for sharing . Our group choose a number of dishes . The staff were helped with the selection to give a wide variety of taste and flavours. They also made sure each dish had enough for 6 people.(eg we received 6 succulent grilled lambs skewers) My personal favourite was the arr’nabit (traditional fried cauliflower with tahini... More

Almond Bar is like a big embrace from your favourite Auntie from the minute you walk in to the minute you leave. Service is warm, attentive and friendly. The food is unbelievable. There is nothing here that you just don't want to try or that makes your mouth water when you read about it on the menu. Staff are always... More

I could rave about this place for ages, but in doing so would deny you the time to get on the phone and make a booking. Loved it. Impeccable service, wine list and staff. Very comfortable in letting them call the shots regarding the dishes and order. Just lovely

We opted for the meat banquet which was a good range of dishes and starting with 3 dips and pita. Highlights were the chicken and beef skewers and the crunchy salad that was a bit like a great salad without feta and olives and with crunchy flat bread instead. The cauliflower dish was also really great. Staff were friendly and... More

Fabulous, extraordinary. And more. Everything in this delightful little gem succeeds in pleasing all your senses. Warm and cosy decor, excellent offering and variety of middle eastern dishes. Everyone we tried was delicious, well prepared and presented. Despite being a very busy night the staff were all patient in explaining the dishes and then to help us to understand the... More

Found it difficult to find the restaurant, Google said we were right there but the sign on the building said Royal. The large glass windows need a sign. But...once we got across the road the service was outstanding. The table setting was minimal with a selection of different flavoured almonds. Very enticing. Water was poured with flair from a traditional... More
