Multiple strands of the rich, complex and ancient traditions of Arabic cuisine come together at Sydney’s Zaitoune Mezza & Grill, a family-owned restaurant in Putney whose roots are in Syria, Lebanon and Greece. The magic in the kitchen is not really magic at all – rather it is the result of generations of homemade recipes, big family feasts, and a shared passion for mouthwatering Middle Eastern food. Eminently social, no visit to Zaitoune’s Morrison Road restaurant would be complete without a couple of sharing mezze to start your meal off with – if you’re dining as a group of four or more go for the lavish Zaitoune one metre-long mezza, loaded with shish tawook, lamb, kofta, toume, dips like hummus, babaganoush, tzatziki, veggie delights like falafel, kibbeh, sambousek, tabouli, fatoush, pickles and olives. Looking for an express meal? Zaitoune’s wraps are just the ticket, packed with healthy salads and traditional grilled goodness, both meaty and vegetarian.
Good food, friendly staff, cozy environment... very impressive with the presentation of the 1-meter Mezza board. I've already arranged to go there again with my friends :)
Great buzzy ambience on Saturday night. Efficient, friendly, helpful service, and above all fabulous food. A metre long platter of deliciousness! So much fun, so “ate too much”!
Great restaurant, lots of space for that next B'day Party or Christening Celebration. Food is just so much yum! Bookings essential to avoid disappointment. 2 thumbs up!
