    Very impressed with the food and service at Mecca Bah. Our little party of 7 commented through the evening about the tasteful decor, the friendly service and most of all, the delicious food (and at reasonable prices)! Highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely come again.

    I wanted to love this restaurant but it was a little disappointing. The service was slow and unattentive and the food was substandard. We ordered the chicken tagine which was ok, and the lamb salad but found the lamb to be dry and grisly. We were dining on NYE and the staff seemed really busy rushing past with plates from the kitchen, so although it wasn’t completely full maybe they were busier than normal. We had ordered a second round of drinks but when they didn’t come we decided to go up to the counter and pay. At the counter we were just told the amount, as opposed to being presented with the bill which didn’t seem appropriate for a nice restaurant. The decor is nice and it’s conveniently located in the gasworks plaza, but I probably won’t be rushing back.

    Made a last minute reservation approx. an hour and 15 minutes before we arrived via google reservations, it seemed a little inconvenient for them but they were still able to accomodate the booking, apart from that the service was really good and the food was delicious as always!

    Have tried Mecca Bar at other locations in town & have always been happy with the food. I really enjoyed the vegetarian tagine here, couscous was delightfully fluffy & tagine delicious

    Staff were very professional, attentive and polite. Food came quickly and was very good quality. The restaurant is spacious, which allows for private conversations. Overall I would recommend for many different occasions.

    This restaurant is a delight from the staff to the ambiance , as for the FOOD ............WOW ..... Out of this world !!! If you love Mediterranean food this is the place to go. Probably one suggestion is to maybe lose one or two settings to free up a little space.

    We ordered the signature meat platter and tabbouleh. They are amazing. The cocktail I order was really good too. Very comfortable place to sit on with cushion on every seat. Suitable for dating and girls night out.

    Service and food were sublime. Great atmosphere and surroundings. Missed Mecca Bah when it closed at Emporium. Glad to see it reopened in a great precinct, which is still pretty close to where I work.

    Whilst the food was delicious, the service was slow. It felt as though no one knew who was managing our table and a simple addition of drinks seemed complicated with a different waitstaff having to come back to take the order.

    Food was amazing as were the cocktails. Was a bit odd to have to sit at high bar tables, the drinks barely fit and it was extremely tight when the food came out.

    Unfortunately there was 4 of us and we were placed on a tiny round table. It was such a struggle to fit our pizzas and drinks on the table that our wine bottle and waters had to go on the floor. Service was good. Food was better when it was at emporium.

About the restaurant

Make the trek

The good folk at Mecca Bah Brisbane (one of four Mecca Bah outlets) are all about authenticity – well, as authentic as you can get when you try to bring a touch of the Middle East to Fortitude Valley. From the colourfully decorated plates to the beautifully presented food, you’ll certainly feel transported to another land once you sink your teeth into their sweet potato falafels smothered in tahini or the baked haloumi garnished with pomegranate, mint salad and lemon. They encourage sharing, with dishes designed to be savoured by a group, ensuring you get to try as many of the delicacies as possible. You might want to opt for the char-grilled barramundi wrapped in vine leaves and served with hummus and a parsley, artichoke and olive salad or perhaps a Turkish pizza with a choice of toppings – the spiced chicken with eggplant, rocket and more of that luscious tahini would be our pick. Finish your meal with a cool scoop or three of Mecca Bah ice cream – with options like date and vanilla, Turkish coffee or halva to choose from, it’ll be tricky to stop at just one.

Best dish: Beef tagine with cous cous
