Middle Eastern | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

We chose the four course option from an excellent selection of set menus with matching wines. The menu items were of middle eastern origin but made from largely locally sourced ingredients. The wines were of diverse origin, French, German and from the Bakkah Valley of Jordan. Each was an excellent accompaniment to the associated dish. Really well matched to the food. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the pace of the meal suited us perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoys something a little different. More

Middle Eastern | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

We chose the four course option from an excellent selection of set menus with matching wines. The menu items were of middle eastern origin but made from largely locally sourced ingredients. The wines were of diverse origin, French, German and from the Bakkah Valley of Jordan. Each was an excellent accompaniment to the associated dish. Really well matched to the food. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the pace of the meal suited us perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoys something a little different. More
