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

My partner had been before and spoke of taking me there for ages.
We couldn’t decide so ended up with the set menu - it was delicious!
And the cocktails topped it off!

Food was outstanding. Everything was exceptional. The cauliflower confit was amazing, the hummus with goat fantastic, and the lamb just melted. The yoghurt sauce didn't add anything for a dish this rich, though the beans and lamb pancetta were terrific. Service was a little slow at times with not many patrons, but always friendly and helpful. And for food this good, the price was outstanding.

Food quality and presentation is great. However, I think they can improve on the service level. Head waitress is quick to remind guests that they only have 2 hours to a meal. I think they serve the food too fast and we felt like we are being rushed. The introduction to the each food wa also too fast and doesnt feel like they take time to describe the dishes with pride.

Amazing food, wine list, atmosphere & hospitality. The hummus with smoked goat, the lebanese dumplings,the lamb..everything we ate was delicious and the flavours new. For catching up with friends or an intimate dinner, Nour is a wonderful Sydney restaurant that deserves much more praise than it gets. Highly recommended & cant wait to return.

High quality restaurant food. Quirky variations on mainly Lebanese fare. We had 2 absolute standout meals. The trout and short rib these 2 meals wont be bettered by any restaurant. Possibly equaled but not bettered. The surprise was the risotto - it was so good.
Pricing for the three of us $300 included $60 bottle of wine, unlimited mineral water, 5 meals plus starters for high quality food this value is hard to beat.

Expected the food to be quite be up a few notches on the sort of food I have eaten at Middle Eastern restaurants over the years. It wasn’t. Half a chargrilled eggplant with a few smears of tarator for close to $25? Very salty chargrilled octopus which was cold. Lamb shoulder (lamb is not in season) which was too strong in flavour, which gave the impression of “older” lamb. Fattoush was tasty but tomatoes tasteless. Also, most restaurants do provide bread. Which would have extended the meal a little due to residual tarator etc. I was really looking forward to this restaurant so it’s a shame it didn’t live up to our expectations.

An amazing dining experience!

I've eaten at a lot of Arabic/Lebanese restaurants, but this by far is the most innovative and exciting I've had!

The food, the service and the ambience...all 5 stars!

I'm afraid the pleasant atmosphere, good food and good service was marred by the absolutely dreadful and painfully loud acoustics of the restaurant. It was literally impossible to hear each other talk and my ears were ringing for 24 hours after we left.

Not sure what they should do, but there must be an answer.

Otherwise, a great restaurant for the profoundly deaf.

I only mentioned in passing to my friend about her birthday (why we went to dinner), and staff heard this. They later brought out the dessert we ordered with a candle - a small gesture but really made her night special and surprised me too.

Atmosphere, food and service are all really great and worth the money.

I've been to Nour a couple times already and will be back again.

Sorry I didn’t give you 5 stars on the food everything was delicious except the potatoe dish. When you’d already set your bar so high they seemed a let down.
Thanks for finding us a cosy table at the back away from the door on a rare cold night. Service was spot on through out the evening.
We will be back!

Second time here and took friends for the first time.
We all loved it. Great food and delicious cocktails.
The only thing I would say that wasn't fantastic, was in the day time it really showed how dirty the lovely soft pink chairs were. This attention to detail is definitely noticed when the sun is shining.

All round great restaurant with perfect service. The food is original and superbly done, though some dishes were a little rich for me. And our table was well-sited but it's not for you if you don't like a noisy restaurant. Highly recommended all the same.
