Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant is an absolute must. We come here every year when we are on holiday. The food and service is hard to beat. Ibby is the most wonderful host with old school welcoming service and recommendations of food and drinks. Can't wait to be...back for a second visit on our holidayMore

Amongst the best Middle Eastern food I've ever had! My wife and I went out for dinner, were well looked after by the staff and the range of drinks were good. But the food is exceptional. We had the shoulder of lamb, a chicken dish...and the fetoush salad - all expertly done with such fresh and alive taste. If you like Lebanese or Middle Eastern cuisine, Syra is a must.More

Our first evening meal in Hobart was at Syra and our taste buds were richly rewarded. As a family of 4, we ordered 2 main meals, 3 small plates and bread with humus to share. Everything just burst with flavour from the chermoula chicken to...the slow roasted lamb. What an exquisite cacophony of flavours and tastes! The house-made humus was the best I have ever had. Combine all this with professional and courteous service at a great price point and you have a wonderful recipe for success. Highly recommended.More

Visited this restaurant as a group of 4 on a Saturday night. Booked the table well in advance. Restaurant was very busy. Ordered a mixture of small and large dishes including hummus, Chermoula chicken, charred squid, fatoush salad, and slow cooked lamb shoulder, but the...star of the show was definitely the spiced duck. Amazing flavours and interesting dishes. Not your average middle eastern cuisine. Wine selection was good also and night was capped off with tasty desserts and Turkish coffees. Service was very good. Very enjoyable experience. Will be back when next in Hobart.More

Fabulous food, good service too. This turned out to be a spur of the moment kind of visit. My wife told me there's a good middle eastern restaurant in Salamanca and wasn't sure of the name. So a quick search and Syra it was. Funnily...enough we had just spent the whole day in Mount Field and weren't sure how dressed up we needed to be so showed up in hiking gear which was far from ideal but wasn't a big deal either. Food was absolutely on Point. The fattoush salad was a favourite!!More

Flavourful and creative middle eastern cuisine. Nice ambience, lovely music and great service. Unfortunately, we are sensitive to some additives (failed to mention to staff] and got the tell tale thirsties through the night.

Really enjoyed our dinner here. Prices were at the higher end but worth it, as everything was delicious, from the usual hummus and cauliflower dishes to the tasty garlic prawns. Would have loved to return but were sadly not in town for long. Tables outside...if the weather is nice, and a pleasant ambience inside. Definitely recommendMore

It was very hard decision to choose where to go in Hobart, I am glad we went there. The restaurant does not look very special, in fact it was painted black on many walls! As usual we ordered and the food came. We ordered Tassie...Tempranillo and it was delicious. Food arrived , well presented and every dish was delicious..that included desserts. So we recommend our friends to go last week and they said they had a good meal there too so well done and thank you !More

My husband and I dined at Syra tonight. Trying to choose from the extensive menu was too hard so we went with the chef’s Feedme five course option. Best decision - so many delicious dishes such as the cauliflower, the wagu, the chargrilled fish and...the fresh salad accompaniments. To finish it all off we managed to squeeze in their lovely crème caramel dessert. Service was impeccable - friendly, knowledgeable and not intrusive. Would recommend.More

This restaurant stands the test of time. Don't go often but each time we do (over several years) we are never disappointed. Consistently attentive and professional service, tasty, interesting dishes, delicately plated. Booking advised as it appears to always be busy - a reflection of...loyal patronage. Highly recommended.More
