About Malouf Zum Zum

Melbourne is a paradise for foodies, but where do those in Carlton North go when they want refreshing Middle Eastern cuisine? The very simple answer is Malouf Zum Zum on Rathdown Street. It’s cosy, it’s modern and undoubtedly offers a welcome change from a saturation of Italian restaurants in the area. Perfect for a pre- or post-shopping fill, the menu at Malouf Zum Zum changes with the seasons so you can be sure of freshness, but whatever the time of year, the food will always encourage sharing. It’s prepared with love by a small team who really know their stuff, thus Melbourne is lucky to have this little gem. There’s little not to love so pop in, say hello and have some falafel.

Fabulous food. All dietary requirements (including Vegan) were adequately catered for which I thought was going to be difficult given the sharing nature of the dishes, but it was done perfectly. Great value. I will be back!

Excellent food, lovely atmosphere with friendly service. When asked if they had gluten free food for one of our party the host marked up the menu for him and explained how they could adapt some recipes so that his options were as varied as everyone else’s. Highly recommended

Food was great though not a huge amount for a 'banquet'. Disappointed that coffee and tea were extra. But the food was excellent - delicious.

excellent food, friendly service. A thoroughly pleasant experience. They even held our booking for us after we were caught in a traffic jam for over 1/2 an hour.

We had a great dining experience at Zum Zum. Our party of 4 ordered the banquet and we found the range of dishes excellent and great value for money. We find this middle-east inspired restaurant better than many others as the dishes are not oily but still have the traditional flavours and are delicious . Home made icecream and excellent turkish delight with arabic coffee were a great way to finish off a very satisfying meal.

We booked through Quandoo and were offered 6.00 or 8.00pm online, we arrived to have a drink in the area prior to 8.00 and there were only 2 tables with people at them at Zum Zum. The waitress had no record of the booking, but said ok to be seated. The main complaint is that the waitress had no conception that our party of 4 were hoping to have a good time and that she has role in providing pleasant service. She didn't smile, she showed no warmth or energy, just stated that it is only banquet available midweek and because January is so quiet this was the case in fact every night. We were brought the food efficiently and offered more of anything we wanted (inclusive) but it was so very ordinary we didn't want any more. Nothing really wrong with the food, but I can cook up more exciting flavours at home. Still at only $30 a head no great harm. Would we back? No way! Zum Zum = Ho Hum.

We had a lovely dinner at Malouf Zum Zum. The food was delicious and service very good. The atmosphere is relaxed and the setting in the Rathdowne Village is lovely and parking is easy.

Wished we had tried the set price menu, the food on the other tables looked magnificent - we asked about it, but were told there would be too much food. We enjoyed what we had, but prefer a variety of tastes. When we return, we will know what to order. A pleasant casual night.

The Malouf family never fail with their generosity and making you feel like family. The small space feels like you're dining at a friends home serving delicious middle eastern cuisine.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommended. Good range of Lebanese dips, substantial mains (the lamb especially recommended) and although it was a busy Saturday night our food arrived promptly.
