Em Nabil’s Lebanese Kitchen is the headquarters where masterchef Fay (AKA Em Nabil) gets to introduce her deep and imaginative understanding of Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisine to the Sydney public. Fay’s recipes have achieved some fame in cookbooks by acclaimed author Charmaine Solomon, and it’s here at this Milsons Point restaurant along Alfred Street that you can try them for yourself. With such credentials, and number of other successful Lebanese restaurants behind her, you can expect Fay to create a feast fit for a sheik.
If you’re looking for fine Lebanese dining in Sydney, it’s a safe bet to opt for a restaurant run by a chef whose recipes have been featured by an internationally-acclaimed food author with 31 cookbooks to her name. Charmaine Solomon’s endorsement is one thing, but the food at Em Nabil’s Lebanese Kitchen speaks for itself, in an inimitably colourful and flavourful Middle Eastern language. This restaurant along Alfred Street in Milsons Point emphasises the social nature of Lebanese dining, with guests encouraged to mop up the delicious dishes with a round of freshly baked Lebanese breads.
You can start simply at Em Nabil’s Lebanese Kitchen with a mouthwatering roll of Lebanese bread stuffed with falafel, lamb, kofta, kebbe or seasonal vegetables and hummus, tabbouleh and more, or go as lavish as you’d like. Em Nabil’s is a casual and informal place to dine Middle Eastern, but is famous for the quality of the ingredients used and the dishes themselves, made according to recipes culled from chef Fay’s renowned archive. This Lebanese restaurant in Sydney’s Milsons Point balances vegetarian with meat dishes, offering just as many meat-free options as not. Shaybiyeh (spinach pie) and batotoh eb kizzibroh (coriander potatoes) join meaty delicacies like Lebanese lady fingers and djaj mishwee (chargrilled garlic chicken), but one of the best ways to indulge here is by ordering up a number of mixed platters to share among a big group. As they say in Lebanon, sahtan!
Very friendly service and some great food make this a great place for a relaxed meal with friends. Been a few times and hasn't failed to satisfy!
