From their stylish location on Sydney Road, Manakish serves some of Melbourne’s finest Lebanese dishes. Functioning as a cafe and bar as well as a superlative Middle Eastern restaurant, Manakish is a fantastic place to meet up with friends over breakfast or a cup of coffee. Speaking of breakfast, the options are incredible here, and include amazing platters – try the Big Breakfast with eggs, tomato, spinach, grilled haloumi, sausage and mushrooms – and delectable options like French toast. For lunch or dinner, try out the Hot Fish, the fish of the day served with tahini, salad and rice, or the skewer platter, a big spread of favourites including two skewers of your choice from kofta, chicken or lamb, alongside hummus, baba ghannouj, tabbouleh and rice. Found on Sydney Road just steps from Jewell station, Manakish is a must-visit restaurant for fans or authentic Middle Eastern cuisine. Reserving ahead is recommended.
The 'small' plates on the menu were very good. Tasty and well made. The prawn baklava was deicious but the other 'medium' and 'large' dishes were not impressive. Service was lacking. Could be a really nice place... just needs a few tweaks.
