Nour is built on a dream of presenting classic Lebanese flavors in a fresh, exciting way. Who said falafel has to roll to the same old beat, meal after meal? Why does eggplant only get to hang out smashed with tahini? Don’t you think the humble vine leaf deserves to encase a little mystery once in a while? At Nour we use an unrestricted approach to create food that is vibrant and bold, yet familiar and comfortable

Did not appreciate the fact that we were told at the end of the meal that the credit card system did not allow the processing of more than 2 credit cards. This was for a $1,000 bill for 6 people (3 couples). As someone who works in finance and deals with the system in question (Tyro) this was an out and out lie and was merely a decision by management NOT a system deficiency. Please do not lie to your patrons and treat them as if they are stupid. Due to this the staff, who were great, lost a $100 tip

Rebecca All reviews are appreciated, however the information provided to you, by myself, is in fact correct. Due to the integration of Tyro and our til system we are not capable of splitting a bill over more than 2 card payments. A fact that is highly advertised, web site, menus etc. I did not appreciate the way that you spoke to my employee! Aggressive, combative & rude is never acceptable, especially as he was just doing his job. Thank you for your feedback and your promise to never return.

You got to try out their cocktails. Prawn falafels and the short beef ribs were my favourites. Great venue for a friends get together and share the mix of dishes. Lebanese dumplings are also my favourites.
Good service

I booked Nour for a birthday dinner for my boyfriend. We both love Middle Eastern/Lebanese food so have been excited to try Nour. From start to finish, the service was impeccable, with all requests and dietary requirements catered for. The food and cocktails were also delicious. Perfect ambience for a romantic evening out

I can see the appeal of Nour but unfortunately a dinner for a couple in an early 2hr sitting - no. We got the sense we were being rushed out the door for the next sitting and the food was a little blah. Might be a good good for a group but avoid the earlier 2hr sitting. Delicious lychee cocktails.

Everything was really good. Though there is one complaint. The waiters took away a bowl of food that we actually hadn't finished. It was the chicken dish and there were a good amount of beautifully spiced lentils I was eating.. I turned my head for one second and when turned around again the bowl was gone. The same thing almost happened with the desert. I would appreciate if they asked if we were finished first. I get they like to be efficient but it goes a bit too far. Otherwise all was good.

The food was delicious but the sizes of the portions were way too small, even for me as a girl that doesn’t need much to be full. Prices were high compared to what you got (3 dumplings $25). Long waiting time for the food. Ambience was amazing. If money doesn’t matter, a great choice.

Friendly staff, but they lost some points on service for me - seemed we always had to wave them down during dinner for more drinks or to order food.
Wine list is VERY expensive with the cheapest bottle starting at around $60 - very annoying.
Atmosphere is fab with a great casual lively vibe.
I will be back but be good if they could consider above comments.

The food is fantastic - well matched sauces to each dish. The ambience and decor were both lovely, albeit conversations at the next table were very audible without the tables necessarily being too close.

The main two sticking points were that a serving plates menu for couples is of less use than it is for a group, which meant I felt as though we didn’t get to try as much of the menu as we might have liked; and the service was more functional than cosy.

I thought the food was great, I really enjoyed the attention to detail. The technique and flavors were spot on. Good place for sharing however the portion sizes could've been a little more generous. The service was great but it was a little too loud and noisy, i went with family so was difficult to hold a conversation. Overall i would recommend and was enjoyable.
