Why Businesses in the Sydney CBD Gravitate to Lebanese Restaurants

Businesses in the Sydney CBD are always on the lookout for new lunch spots. The Sydney CBD is home to many of Australia’s most successful companies. Managers of these companies frequently meet with important clients and valued partners at the city’s best restaurants. Unsurprisingly, businesses search for the most impressive and delicious restaurants in the city to treat their guests. In a vibrant and diverse city like Sydney, new restaurant options pop up almost monthly, so it is understandably difficult for businesses to select one. However, many have chosen Lebanese restaurants like Zahli Restaurant to impress their guests. What could be the secret to our success?

Zahli’s tips for client lunches

After hosting many business meetings at Zahli, we’ve managed to come up with a few key pointers to ensure that your lunch is not only a success, but that it impresses your guest as well.

  • Ensure you reserve a table beforehand, especially if your group is large.

  • Treat everyone to traditional Lebanese beverages (we strongly recommend Arak).
  • Introduce yourself and your group to the servers.
  • Insist on Lebanese coffee after meals–it will make the afternoon much easier to get through.
