Amazing food and service! The setting and view and added extra bonus
Amazing food and great atmosphere, Friendly staff and very unique designs. Facing darling harbour for a nice view. Can not wait to go back very soon!
This is our second time here, we love this place - again we chose the $65pp banquet, so much choice and everything is delicious. We will be back again!
Good food and service. Great location. We were a bit late but it was no problem for the staff. I would recommend it to anyone.
I booked this time to take visitors, we had been before as a couple and had a good experience but I read some less than favourable reviews that did not match with my own. Glad I trusted my own judgement, I'm even more puzzled by those reviews now as both food and service were excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful with our food choices. They even put up with me ordering a bottle of prosecco and then having second thoughts - they opened it for me to taste, saying they serve it by the glass so not a problem if I didn't like it (it was a bit sweet for my taste so I ordered a different one). For a place that doesn't even pretend to be fine dining I thought that was above and beyond.
After watching people who had been seated after us receive menus and their order almost immediately, we had then proceeded to ask for a menu for 2 people, whereby only one was handed to us. While we were understanding the venue was quite busy, however by the time we received our argileh, we had noticed no smoke was coming out, where we naturally checked to see how much tobacco was placed into the orange head we had initially paid for. After seeing 1/4 to half of the orange head filled up, we asked a staff member (which will remain unnamed), to have a look and confirm that a lot of tobacco was in fact missing. This staff member then brought over the employee who was looking after the outdoor section and insisted he would know a lot more about it, impying that we did not know what we were talking about. Following the 2nd staff members humiliating attempt to revive the argileh, he realised that we were in fact correct and that there was half a head of tobacco missing, and not distributed evenly. By the time our second argileh had arrived, we had been sitting there for a total of 1 hour. Overall, after experiencing many argileh and shisha venues, as well as being brought up by our culture to know how to make a half-decent argileh, it had come to our attention that there was little to no knowledge about shisha, the service was sloppy and somewhat patronising, and it seems that the Kazbah needs a little bit of competition within the Darling Harbour vicinity to pull the staff back into place. Perhaps I will have to experience the other locations before I completely write it off.
I had guests from interstate who said the location of Kazbah was wonderful and had great views of the city. The service was great throughout the evening and all the staff were helpful and very friendly. The food was superb and delicious - we decided on the banquet as there were 5 of us in total and we could not faulty the food all. Many thanks Kazbah, we'll be back for sure :-)
Service was great but quality of food was disappointing. We ordered a meat board for 3 people. However the beef and lamb was only minced meat which was not very fresh. They were tough, tasteless and very dry. The BBQ chicken was not Middle East style. The portion of warm cheese cake was small. All of them were at very average quality. They are not good authentic Middle East flavours. We totally agree with the other recent dis-satisfactory comments in other platforms.
Great cocktails and food. Portions are generous and great for sharing. They also had a lunch special menu and happy hour drinks menu for the more budget conscience. Staff very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. My friend wanted her cocktail less sweet and they remembered that each time she ordered it with no issues. Would go there again for sure.
A lovely time was had by all 6 guests who celebrated a girlfriend's birthday at Kazbah-Darling Harbour. The food was delicious especially the chicken tagine, the waiter friendly and efficient, the decor was appealing and the complimentary homemade turkish delight that accompanied our after dinner coffee was a nice treat.
