    One of the most consistent menus and meals in Melbourne in my opinion, which is why we return regularly. Took new guests last night, for the first time, and all 3 were impressed. The service is friendly, well-paced, great environment and terrific food. Mama Manoush food is exceptional. We ordered a banquet last night so that our guests could appreciate a range, but the a la carte menu is also terrific if you want a lighter or smaller meal. Drinks are good value, with happy hour a great idea for early diners like us. Love the cocktail range and one of our guests also enjoyed the beer selection, which I've never tried.

    Well,we ordered 3 Ramadan banquets.The amount /quantity if food we received with those 3 banquets were not up to expectations.Everything was so little that we felt we were ripped off with 3 banquets and we could rather order two. The most disappointing thing was when desert was served.She served a square piece of Kanafeh in one plate with spoons and asked us to share the plate???Like seriously??? We ordered 3 banquets so expect atleast to serve us three plates of deserts individually instead of one.That was not so nice gesture.On asking for more desert as that was not enough for us, the waitress even brought a smaller piece of desert by saying that this is all we have.Not to forget,we were charged extra $3 on top of overall $180 which i don't understand why. I will give 5 stars for Ambience though and quality of food however we feel we didn't get what we paid for. Thanks

    Possibly the freshest and tastiest dinner I've had in years. Amazing service, great wait staff, speedy service, TASTY FOOD and beyond amazing cocktail. Star was the Hendricks Mandarin Sour. Great value and a cracking venue. Will be back sooner rather than later!

    We have been to Mama Manoush several times and not once has it disappointed. This is hands down the best Lebanese (if not best food) in Melbourne. The flavour of each dish is out of this world, and the service is always so welcoming. Truly an amazing spot to eat.

    Love this place. The food is amazing, the service is great. This time I dined with a friend who required gluten and dairy free options and the waitress was able to confidently guide us on choices and substitutions. Also the first time I managed to fit in dessert and the kanafeh was delicious.
