Bought a groupon deal to this place. Tried to call to book and the phone number was disconnected. Emailed them to try and secure a reservation and still waiting for a response. Had to get my money back as these people are so unprofessional and simply ignore their customers. Unable to even contact them!Hi bjholiday, We're very sorry you had this experience with us. We have been having some issues with our phone line lately & unfortunately it has caused a lot of confusion. We hope we can see you in the future & show you a great time with some amazing food!

Dropped by for a take away coffee after doing some business in Granville. Great coffee served quickly with a smile by the barista. This establishment also serves Lebanese pizza which we did not have time to sample, however will make time in the near future as it smelled fantastic and looked great.

Located in the grounds of Our Lady of Lebanon Cathedral this cafe serves a great selection of freshly made Lebanese pizza. Very good strong coffee with plenty of seating. Can get very busy on Sunday mornings.

This is one of the places that you should not miss if are really interested in authentic Lebanese food. Everything tastes like heaven. Staff are so friendly and the food is served with minimum delay.We went for mixed plates, trying kebabs, hummus, baba ghanoush and other authentic meals. So good. All well cooked and tasty. The spices they use are amazing. The cinamon tea at the end, is a bless.Don't forget it is not a find dinning or a very classy restaurant. It is a heaven for food lovers.

New Star Kebab Family Restaurant

Reviewed By Jackie M

(4.5 stars)It’s Friday night and Auburn is teeming with people. This Western Sydney suburb has a lot more high-rise than I remember from nigh on thirty years ago, and the cultural diversity is wider with Chinese, Turkish, Lebanese, Nepalese and Indian ancestry making up the suburb's top five. Weathering both the upwards growth and the cultural shift, New Star Kebab Family Restaurant has been serving the good people of Auburn for forty years. “In the past forty years, we have become part of Australian cuisine,” owner Atilla Tok explains. The multicultural crowd dining at his busy restaurant are testament to the fact that eating kebab is now as Australian as the ANZAC biscuit.Tok immigrated to Australia 27 years ago, taking over the helm of this popular Turkish kebab shop in 2000, nearly twenty years ago. The menu has stayed the same throughout his tenure, with ninety percent of the food made right in front of your eyes (basically everything bar for the salads). His all-male service team are plentiful in number and friendly in attitude, ready to get this Friday night rolling.Demanding your attention even more loudly than the store’s primary coloured neon, is the mouthwatering aroma of charcoal cooking. It’s emanating from a glass booth where a smiling young lad expertly maneuvers kebabs over smoking hot coals using bread rather than tongs. Watching the bread picking up all the meaty juices, I’m pleased to see it make its way onto the Mixed Shish Plate ($27) along with your choice of three different kebab – chicken, lamb and adana.Dining with a group in the outdoor plastic tent that expands the kebab shop’s seating to about a hundred, we’re treated to some fancier plating that sees three mixed plates worth of kebabs arranged in the round with salads, rice and well-charred tomatoes. The produce is top notch, from the premium quality meats, all the way to the non-floury tomatoes, helped no doubt by the fact that Tok is his own providore via second business, Fresh Cut Australia. He runs this in his down time from New Star Kebab, a business that’s open seven days a week from 7am until 1am.Picked up in still-warm Turkish bread, the hunks of lamb back strap and leg meat are tender and delicious. The chicken kebab is moist and well-charred, perfect against Turkish yoghurt garlic dip, a gentler sauce than the Lebanese toum you might be used to.Roasted chilli sauce and the orange chilli dip in the platter of Mixed Dips ($10) keeps things lively as we mow our way through the meats, cooling our mouths on mugs of house-made Lemonade ($3). Made with lemons, sugar and water, it's lovely and sour, but not as sour as the purple cabbage salad. Tok points out this is an anomoly - someone in his forty-strong staff added too much lemon juice today. Personally I find it great as a palate reset as I move between the sumac, cumin and pepper-seasoned adana kofte and the shish plate's other items.Fine curls of doner kebab meat join a mix of bread, tomato-based sauce and yoghurt, for New Star’s Iskender Kebab ($18), which is then baked in the oven. Here this dish is slightly modified from the Turkish original, which would normally see cold yoghurt added to the hot plate after cooking. Tok explains that his Australian audience wasn’t that keen on the hot-meets-cold sensation.While New Star Kebab do make traditional pizzas, they’re listed way down the back end of the menu board for a reason – you should be eating Turkish pide instead! Opt-in for egg on the Ispanakli Pide ($21/large) with mozzarella, fresh spinach and fetta, it elevates this crisp, fresh pide into a satisfying, thing of beauty against a moderate squeeze of lemon.Kiymali Pide ($21) is given a fresh-parsley hit against ground lamb, onion, tomato and vegetables, and eats much lighter than other versions of this dish I’ve tried. I quite liked it against the babaganush dip, made here using baked rather than char-grilled eggplants, giving it a stronger eggplant flavour.Setting New Star’s gozleme apart from the ubiquitous market stall ones you’ll find just about everywhere, is a team of older Turkish ladies who roll the dough out bigger and thinner than is possible to achieve in a market setting. The resulting Ispanakli Gozleme ($10) is wonderful, with crisp English spinach wrapped inside thin flaky pastry that's turned golden on the grill.Tok’s philosophy of using good quality produce and not cutting corners sets New Star Kebab apart from other Turkish kebab restaurants I have visited. With a constant flow of people that continues throughout my meal, it’s pretty clear New Star doesn’t need reviews like this one to popularise their business, but I felt compelled to tell you about it regardless.

I came here for lunch with an old friend on Saturday. We had one of those wonderful unhurried lunches with a couple of bottles of wine. The food servings are huge and are definitely in the delicious comfort food category. We started off with traditional meatballs and a caprese salad with fresh crusty bread to soak up the mouthwatering sauce on the meatballs dish. We had a half hour break between our entrees and mains and just drank wine and talked. This was a sensible decision, the main dishes were especially huge. I had the traditional FUNGHI SCALLOPINE (Pan fried veal with garlic, parsley, cooked w. wild mushrooms roasted potato & brussel sprouts & a mushroom sauce) and my friend ordered the PORK BELLY which was a Crispy pork belly w. creamy mash, seared scallops finished with an apple mousse & cider reduction. Both were very satisfying. I managed to finish mine, my friend ended up taking half his home. The service was spotless and friendly. The wine list is well chosen to compliment the food very well. We stuck with a couple of bottles of the same Opawa Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017 through out our meal. We will both definitely be back again to eat here!We are so glad you enjoyed your experience at Sicilian. We hope you will come and dine with us again soon!

The Olive Greek Restaurant and Bar

Reviewed By woftam66

This really is without doubt the best "traditional" Greek Restaurant in Sydney.... With daylight second.. There are others that rate... Some that offer live music which is always lovely... Some more centrally located... And several that are equally deserving of 5 stars... But on that basis The Olive deserves 6 stars... And it's all about the food and service.. The fitout is suburban basic, the location nothing flash, the wine list unsurprising but the food.. The food.... Its all about the food... Beautufully prepared traditional home style cooking just like a Greek Grandmother would make served with generosity and love.... Seriously don't bother going anywhere else in the western suburbs of Sydney for traditional Greek food and if you're visiting put this place on your "must eat at" list!

Reviewed By ArmaanHCMC

We had an impromptu mid week lunch here this week. We were both feeling pretty hungry and had a rare couple of hours free in the middle of a very busy work week. On Church st surrounded by many other restaurants the atmosphere is totally different when we walked in. The decor is very nice with soft Lebanese music playing in the background, it felt very welcoming. We were immediately shown to a larger table (it being a relatively quite time) and immediately decided to try a variety of mixed entrees plus a main dish. The two waiters were both highly professional and the head waiter gave excellent advice on wine by the glass to suit the different dishes. The food itself was mouth watering. I have eaten Lebanese food before but none that tasted this good. For my lunch partner it was his first time and he truly fell in love with it. This is definitely a restaurant worth trying and we will definitely be back.
