Dip you Lebanese bread in Hummus or Baba Ganoush and get your appetite ready for some finger licking, great tasting Lebanese food. Located in Surry Hills, this modern looking restaurant gives you the choice to sit inside the restaurant or outside on the terrace and for added entertainment there's a belly dancer at night.
The menu is huge! They have so much to offer, which could leave you lost with what to order. From dips and salads to finger foods, and then from meats to rice and seafood, this place has definitely covered it.
On the entrée menu lists the Sambousek and Falafel as the most popular but, Fried Kebbeh and Spinach Triangles are also tasty traditional Lebanese dishes that are worth tasting. Al Aseel has the "mixed finger foods plate" that has all of these in it which is great to try but, quite small for $12.

Dips and salads are very popular too. But depending on what you order than it may already come with the dish. I suggest the Fattoush salad; it's like a normal salad except mixed with fried bread and dressed with grenadine, garlic and olive oil.
For first timers, the mixed plate will have you set. This comes with Hommus, Baba Ganoush and Garlic Dips, Tabouli, Meat Skewers (lamb, chicken and Kafta) and Falafel. Not only will this will it give you an idea of what to order but will also save space in your pocket as compared to buying the dishes individually.

my favourite lebanese restaurant ever :)
I havnt been to the Surry Hills one but it sounds very nice (especially with the pillows you mentioned). I go teh the one in Greenacre very often as it is close by and it is always great food I reccomend it to everyone who enjoys lebanese food.
But i must say lebanese food in general has to be my favourite.

The Greenacre one is good too but, the atmosphere and vibe is different to the Surry Hills one. The Greenacre place is more family orientated and smaller; and since they’re always busy it feels squashy. The Surry Hills one on the other hand is great for anyone or any occasion and even when they are busy you don’t feel like you’re all sitting on top of each other.
I had my birthday at the Surry Hills one last year and for all 7 of us, I paid $250, this included food, 3 narghile’s and a flow of drinks.
The staff are friendly too!
