    Great food, the service was generally great although the waiters were a bit TOO attentive, asking if we were ready to order multiple times before we even had the whole group there, and then again multiple times before we'd even picked up the menu.

    I am so embarrassed by the fact that after having ordered a banquet for 6 people worth $450, I was made to pay extra for the little plates of sauces that I had asked for. I was so ridiculed in front of my friends, when I was celebrating my birthday when I was told time and again, this is limited, that is limited. Waiter brings sauces to the table and informs sir we are charging extra for this. We specifically asked before choosing the most expensive banquet in their menu as to what can be ordered again and what not. I request all viewers of my comment please do not be fooled by their banquet system. They are there in the menu to empty your pockets and nothing else.

    Good food. Very loud when the dancers came out and how the tables are set can make some feel uncomfortable while the dance is occurring.

    LUNCHTIME BOOKING Some sensitivity to individual customers is required along with a ramping up of overall friendliness and more of a genuine welcome towards a customer who enters the restaurant and has gone to the trouble of booking online. The website should state that you will be ushered out of the restaurant dead on 3 pm. or perhaps a text message sent beforehand! This was embarrassing for me as my guest was from the UK and is not used to this. I chose this restaurant because I had been there for dinner with my Lebanese husband and relations on many occasions and I felt I could give my guest an unforgettable experience of Middle Eastern food and hospitality. What occurred was a whole different experience. Much can be learnt from the demeanour of the guy behind the bar. Friendly, vigilant, helpful and enthusiastic. Sorry Guys ! it was not what I expected because I had seen something quite different over the last 10 years. However, the food was spectacular.but you did nothing to make the occasion special.

At the heart of Parramatta’s famed ‘Eat Street’ resides the original El-Phoenician.

Sleek and contemporary, this venue is perfect for intimate date nights, family meals or friendly catch ups - they even do private dining options and events!

The menu is a decadent Lebanese spread, designed to embody the rich ancestry of Phoenicia. With a selection of traditional mezza, smoky char grilled meats and an array of delectable seafood you’re in for a sensational feast!
