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

The food got better with each course. Service was great, food probably came to quickly. The tables are nice and big and the chairs are comfy. A small lamp on each table would be nice.

The banquet was fabulous and the cocktails delicious

Food is not great. Not worth paying 64$ pp and having a dry lamb, 2 chicken wings and a small piece of falafel! Although the dessert and salad was good.

The best middle eastern food I’ve ever had in Australia, and easily the best cauliflower and eggplant I’ve tasted in my life. Would reccomend extremely highly.

I've been dying to try Nour for a while and I'm so glad I finally did. The atmosphere in there was buzzing and energetic and got us very excited to see the menu. The service was top notch. We didn't need to grab anyone's attention as the wait staff anticipated every need and were so polite and knowledgeable when we asked questions about the menu.
The food was out of this world. I didn't recognise much of the menu as anything you'd find in a traditional Lebanese restaurant but it was all delicious. We didn't leave anything on our plates!
Will definitely be returning!

This was our third visit to Nour. We were expecting an experience like our previous two. Perhaps we have overplayed it in our heads. The food just didn’t seem to have the wow factor like our other visits. The only dish we adored was the shoulder and the octopus. The dessert menu was disappointing as I believe it’s stifle the same items from March. Not sure if we will try again. It’s expensive and we want to know we are getting the best from Nour- and only because we have had the best. Ibby wasn’t present in the restaurant that night and I wonder if that had anything to do with it.

Being Lebanese myself and having lived in Lebanon, this food was just extraordinary. Mind-blowing in new ways, and the fact that they went above and beyond to specifically raise money for Beirut was truly touching. I can't wait to go back here. Would 100% recommend to anyone.

Skip the oysters, falafels, cabbage skewers (unless you enjoy gelatin-like texture), and eggplant. Felt like there was so much going on for each of these. Oysters had a white sauce with what looked like caviar (was it really though?) — these would have been better plain with some lemon; the sauce made it all sorts of confusing taste. Falafels we’re heavily coated, making them taste powdery. Could also tell they weren’t freshly made, guessing these are pre-made and frozen. No traditional crunch of a falafel, rather a heavy dosage of powder. Cabbage skewers are nicely presented, they looked tasty and for the most part are. Once you get into them, you’ll notice they’re coated in some gelatin-like texture; seems to bind the cabbage together on the skewer. We weren’t comfortable with the uncertainty of what that was. And for the eggplant, I was really hoping this would be like babaganoush. We didn’t love it, nor did we hate it. It definitely wasn’t a dish with a wow-factor; so skip. Otherwise the main fish, and fried cauliflower were the best things we had. Even so, the main fish needs some sort of salad to balance out it’s own sauce; don’t forget to pick at the cheek, it’s the best part. Ambiance is nice, and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable

Beautiful food, glad to be seated outside as it was a busy Saturday! The staff are exceptional and despite a crowd still managed to be exactly what we needed at all times. This included be able to swap out banquet meals for our vegan friend, advising on drinks and serving impeccably. Nour deserves all the hype - the cuisine is exceptional - a mix of light and delicate flavours alongside more traditional and much loved slow food.

Amazing food.
Don’t clear plates when the other person is eating.

It’s rude.

Lush experience overall.

Lovely Falafel crumpets.

An exceptional dinning experience every time. I normally go for social dinners, this week I took a client and was equally impressed. The service, the food and experience was exceptional. The entries are busting with unique middle eastern flavours and the whole barramundi is one of the best I’ve had. Highly recommended!!!!
