Food was good but the service was lacking as we had to ask for cutlery on a number of occasions so we could eat the different dishes. the service did not keep up with the blocked out dinner sessions and so were asked to leave even though we hadn't been served our dessert. Won't be a return customer if my group is more than 2 people.

The service was outstanding. Super accommodating for the different dietary requirements in our group. The question was asked first up, which helped the waiter guide us through the menu to ensure that we avoid selecting food that was not appropriate. Would highly recommend family and friends to visit.

Imagine our shock when a light meal for two, plus some pastries for later, on the pavement in the tearing wind and directly under the flightpath, came to $140.00.

Everything we had was great. Banquet is good. If you want a little more variety of mains, order your own selection. Price will be similar, but you'll control what you get! I never have room for dessert, but always grab a take-home option or two, for later!

Greeted at the door by friendly staff who were very passionate about their favourite items on the menu and gave great tips on what to order. The Falafel was perfect, wish I ordered more. The lamb was perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth. The portion size is perfect for two people. We paired it with the beans which was also generously served. My only issue was the small serve of potato with the lamb but we were so full after our meal it didn't matter. Everything was delicious, perfectly portioned and made by staff who love what they make. Oh, and the American Pale Ale, great choice too.

We had the top banquet menu, starters where great - cauliflower excellent- mains was the lamb shoulder which was ok but the potatoes were grey and not pleasant. Dessert selection - loukomades where over cooked, hard and dense with no syrup and the baklava was like a rock.
I think making a table of 6 have a banquet isn’t very customer focused and the mains choice was the same for each banquet option. Overall for the price it doesn’t offer enough variety to make us want to rush back, or to recommend it to others at this time.

Beautiful setting, food was delicious and served quickly. We loved everything we ordered. The only downfall was at times we felt we were being rushed to order our meals and then kept on being asked if we’d finished. If there is a time limit on reservations it should be noted at the time of booking. Overall, I would visit again as this is a small inconvenience that can be overlooked as the rest of the experience was excellent.

The main meal food was suburb. We did have a mixture of desserts and all were very underwhelming. I was surprised that the Turkish Delight - which was at the counter and looked gorgeous - ended up being rubbery and not the right balance of flavours. But all other good was great and next time we will just skip the dessert.

This is the second time up I have dined here and was very happy the first time. This time, food was still fine, but we were seated outside the toilets which had an unpleasant smell during the night. We asked to be moved, but apparently fully booked. But it was not full when I raised it. This was disappointing service, as it was a birthday celebration.
I suggest a screen of some kind to reduce the smell or to not use that space.

Dessert and tea took time to arrive and then we felt hurried to clear the table. Not a great night, we will not be back. I hope the feedback is heeded, as food is pretty good.

They always exceed above expectations with the food and service...Just make sure when you book here that you come on a very empty stomach as you will leave with bursted buttons. I can never fault a thing at Barzaari, the food makes you feel and also takes you back to Europe and the Middle East. Thank you for an amazing Mother’s Day feast.

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.

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.
