A cosy restaurant, a warm atmosphere, tasty food, and friendly staff make a first date perfect.

Our menu includes hot and cold mezze and appetisers, traditional Middle Eastern cuisine, and seafood. In addition to that, we pride ourselves on being very flexible and will cater for any dietary requirements if needed.

Your first encounter with her/him can be made more fun by going through the menu together, discussing and deciding what to order.

The textures, tastes, colours and shapes of our Middle Eastern and Lebanese dishes have ignited people’s attention and curiosity every time.

2. Friendly and experienced staff

Yes, Zahli Restaurant is where to go and get the best Middle Eastern food in Sydney. Not only that, add to the list the friendliest and most experienced staff that will be at your disposal.

Our service is excellent and mere discussions about what to order with the staff would make a date more fun and less awkward. Our staff will help you choose the suitable dish for your taste. We are passionate about what we do and strive to provide you with the best dining experience possible.

We train our staff to have a keen eye for detail and know how to “read the room”, so in a very natural way, you’ll be able to impress your date by having our staff treat you as the gentleman or lady that you are!

3. Comfortable and warm atmosphere

Our restaurant is designed in a way to make you feel cosy and comfortable. Music playing in the background, the sound of other dining guests laughing and being merry, an intimate experience even though public, where our staff know when to be around and when to give you the privacy you need.

The thought that others are having fun over food, discussions and great background music, can make any anxious date calmer. The place is so friendly that it mimics what can happen in a Lebanese restaurant back in the homeland, where strangers sitting next to each other often end up at the same table, drawn by the laughs, dancing and Joie de Vivre at the other table. So, it’s like a dinner, party and new friends at the same time if you and your date are lucky.

4. Arak and all his friends

As the top middle eastern restaurant in Sydney, we do serve alcohol and namely Arak. A purely Lebanese national alcoholic beverage that families there pride themselves on making from scratch at home.

Made of grapes and aniseed, it goes perfect with Lebanese food and straight down to the heart. It is smooth and when sipped throughout your dining experience, be sure that your first encounter with your date will start to get more relaxed. It is an effortless joy to have such unique and tasty food along with this fantastic elixir and as you top it all off with the thoughts of the endless potential of a new person.

If your date is not going that well, and you see no future potential, Arak will be the friend you will lean on for the night.
