Delicious as always! The only place in Melbourne that does Israeli style Hummus well, tastes like it did where I grew up.
On freezing cold day in Melbourne there is only one way to warm up and that with fantastic Israeli food from Left Handed Chef . I felt like I was transported to Tel Aviv.
The best food I’ve had in the longest time ! So fresh and quite a big menu. The falafel and the salad was my favourite although the hummus was also dreamy !
Food is so delicious and you feel like you’re eating in someone’s house. This is definitely a must try.
We had a great night at The Left Handed Chef.
Food was fantastic, with great service.
Can strongly recommend, especially if you are looking for vegetarian options!
Just a lovely lunch and experience. Will be back many times!
The food was nice, music was too loud but other than that no complaints.
We had a terrific experience ... friendly service (even given the gentleman was the only one seating people, taking orders and serving and he was extremely busy). We went for the food and we were not disappointed! Everything was fresh and delicious .... my favourite was the falafel .... exactly like the falafel we ate in Tel Aviv! I can’t wait to go back!
The food was great .....very yummy indeed
Recommend the hummus...best ever
Look forward to going back when LHC are in the new premises
Outstanding as always. Genuine food from the heart.
Love the food and all staffs are very friendly❤️❤️❤️
The food is fresh, authentic and delicious. I’d heard how good the falafel was and it lived up to my expectations, light crispy and tasty
Lovely food and engaging helpful and passionate staff. Great place for a family. Will definitely return when next in Melbourne.
Great and out of the ordinary food, nice atmosphere. The service was very good and friendly.
The food, service and atmosphere at the LHC is always fabulous.
They never disappoint. My sone has tried everything on the menu and finds it difficult to chose a favourite.
Great service, delicious food, food arrived quickly, good vege options. We were thrilled to get a table at short notice.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and found this was a special gem of a diner.
A great place to go if you're looking for authentic, wholesome Israeli food. A simple restaurant and menu, with tasty decent sized portions that offers super value for money.
You can also see and feel that those running the restaurant genuinely care and are passionate about what they do. I recommend this place.
Fantastic food and service! We always over order because everything is so delicious
We went on Sunday, 7 March. The food was delicious and amazing. Absolutely loved the food, the atmosphere and the staff. They were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We loved this place so much I am going back again on Thursday, 11 March and bringing more friends with me. Everyone in Melbourne needs to know about this gorgeous place and go there to eat their delicious amazing food. You will not regret it.
Magnificent food and service. Price was fantastic and best humus ever
Delicious food and so cheap! The cabbage shawarma was unlike anything I’d had before.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here, the service was prompt and friendly and the food was delicious! Highly recommend
I love it here the food is delicious the music is lively
Holly and Nati are lovely and helpful making choices for our dinner
Yet to meet the chef 👨🍳
We love this restaurant. So much good food! We often go when we visit South Melbourne Market, which is a short walk away. The food is always fresh and delicious. Their hummus is amazing! The falafel to die for! Everything we have eaten has been just perfect.
Outstanding Menu, super friendly and efficient staff, great value for money.
Have already recommended it to my family and some friends.
Fabulous food! Lovely staff. Will definitely return multiple times.
Fantastic service as always, highly recommended.
The food is central here, and the quality is outstanding. My falafel pita was the best falafel I’ve had, and my partner’s chicken shawarma pita was packed with flavour, and the chicken perfectly cooked. We ate outside, but the ambiance inside is pleasant if you prefer to eat inside.
Ehuds food is always delicious, and the atmosphere warm and inviting. Will be going back again and again.
Amazing food and incredible chef! I enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend.
Delicious food, generous serves and very friendly service. Will be back! And make sure you try the mint lemonade.
Delicious food! Suitable for families too. Highly recommended
As always the food was fantastic but the real bonus is the attention and friendliness of the staff - just like being with family (in a good way). Would highly recommend.
Awesome food, awesome service, will definitely be back 👍
The best falafel and Tahini ice cream I have ever had! Great, friendly service and very reasonably priced. Will definitely go back!
