Divine falafels, eggplant dip and watermelon and halloumi starters. Souvlakias were delicious, but Pastourma sausage was a bit too rich/'meaty', and beetroot salad underwhelming. Friendly efficient service.

Had a delicious dinner, were told 15 minutes before they needed the table to leave. Needing time to prep space prior to next booking. Were told to get a takeaway pastry as no time to order dessert which we were looking forward to. Felt very rushed and the experience was ruined. Will not be returning to this venue due to poor service and short notice communication. Disappointing as the food was decent.

Banquet had a lot in it, but didn’t need the chips. Service was quick but they didn’t take into consideration our preferences of no pork, we had an entire plate given with pork only options.

Enjoyed the meal very much but they had run out of the slow cooked lamb shoulder which is one of the main dishes we wanted to try!

Fabulous food; generous serves, beautifully presented. Good service ...only downside was the roadworks outside (hardly the fault of the restaurant) which made parking a bit challenging

The food was very tasty but probably the portions for the price were a bit on the small side and the price given the portion didn't represent great value. Small Pita bread at $5 each was a bit rich. Sides were generous and good lamb shoulder was great although the vegetables on the side were not necessary and didn't really benefit from the slow cooking.

All in all a tasty meal but probably not worth the overall price tag.

Went there for my son’s birthday. The banquet was delicious and huge! Only disappointing thing was that I specified it was his birthday and hoped he might be acknowledged with something special, like a dessert with a candle, but it didn’t happen. We went there because he loves their felafels. Great vegetarian options for the banquet menu as well.

We ordered the first banquet and it was a great way to experience their menu. The food was plentiful and full of flavour. Thankfully they let us take a doggy bag home as we had a bit leftover!
The service was outstanding, will definitely be back.

I cannot speak highly enough of Barzaari. Every dish is a revelation in flavour. The traditional is not only respected, but elevated to a level worthy of its status as a classic dish. There is a respect and love for produce and method which comes through in every mouthful. What's more is the sense of hospitality that is the cornerstone of mediterranean and middle eastern culture. Nothing is as important as the guest experience and this is achieved in a most familiar fashion, with care, respect and a genuine desire to please. It is a place I love introducing friends to, knowing they will be treated to a feast for the senses. Highly recommended.

We booked an outside table but on arrival (on time) none were available so we were seated at the bar overlooking the footpath. My companion found the high bar seats uncomfortable. The food was good but the portions were generally small in comparison to the prices and advertised 'shareability'. Cocktails and wine were good and reasonably priced. We found the service a bit hit & miss and kept having to retrieve menus and / or seeking out waitstaff to ask questions or order more. It was lovely, but not the experience we were hoping for, and a little on the expensive side.

The food, service and atmosphere at Barzaari are exceptional. All of the staff are super friendly and make you feel like one of the family and the food is amazing and tasty traditional Cypriot and Mediterranean meals that transport you to another place. The koubes are the best I’ve ever tasted.

The food and service was great. We had the pickled octopus (huge portion), watermelon with string halloumi, skewers and prawns. Everything was well cooked and presented. Staff were attentive and nice.

I wasn't aware that there wasn't an outdoor area out the back. At the time we went, it was quite hot and there was no shade. There is also a bus stop directly out the front, so not the best atmosphere for date night.
