Great service and happy staff. Catered for gluten free pizza, so delicious. I asked about a garlic bread gluten free and they were happy to make it for me. Great price but book a table. Very busy and still great service.

Unusual little gem just off the main beat of Hutt St, in what looks like an ex garage. Bit funky. We ordered the banquet and got some amazing dishes particularly the variety of Mediterranean dips and a feast of many small entrees accompanied by wood...More

I was really craving good Lebanese food after moving to SA for work. A friend recommended this place and it was amazing, tastes just like home cooked food! The portions are slightly small but the flavours certainly make up for it!

Very tasty food with very strong Lebanese influence although we couldn’t resist trying their beautiful pizza as well. Great place for sharing plates as it gives you the opportunity to try many different dishes. Dips are great too.

Today was a beautiful sunny day and perfect for a Sunday brunch. I had never been to Ballaboosta before and instantly appreciated the outdoor seating and rustic façade. We arrived after my in-laws and brother-in-law, to order last. There was a breakdown in communication as...More

Good menu with often a new refreshing twist on the native style. Pleasant setting, inside or out. Good helpful staff even if they're sometimes so busy they don't always remember. And you can get Lebanese coffee if you ask carefully. Great for a relaxed meal...More
