I am a connoisseur of Middle Eastern food and in particular Persian and Lebanese and this was, well, a bit of a let down. It's good, it's edible, but it isn't on par with what I have had to date. If you need a fix, it'll do but you do not need to go out of your way or make a special trip.
Friendly staff, and each course was well described, but... Some of the food was cold (not heated through, and some not even defrosted properly), and there is no chance there was the claimed $180 worth of food. To be fair, when we pointed this out we were offered more food but declined the offer. Reading their prices we feel they would be more accurate claiming a much lesser retail value for the $75 paid.
Made using only fresh and natural ingredients, Hello Dolly in St Peters prides itself on providing authentic Lebanese food that is not only delicious but healthy and nutritious too.
