A GOOD PLACE, GREAT HOST & GREAT LEBANESE FOOD, THANK YOU.
For a fully licensed restaurant they completely ran out of wine bottles. Terribly poor selection and no champagne/sparkling available at all. Should be advertised as BYO .
It was okay but we’ve never had to order a extra side, were always full by the chicken skewers in the banquet, pretty upset but oh well
Established in 2013, Zurouna is the brainchild of passionate food lover, Dahouk who brings decades of experience working in the food industry to this establishment on South Yarra’s Toorak Road. Located just down the street from South Yarra station, Zurouna finds itself well-connected with the rest of Melbourne, making it a convenient stop for some of the city’s finest Middle Eastern eats.
Traditional and authentic Lebanese cuisine is what Zurouna is best known for, especially its wide assortment of elegant and refined mezze dishes. Start off with flatbread dipped in labneh or hummus, before moving onto the restaurant’s popular specialities such as the shish tawouk (marinated grilled chicken breast with garlic, lemon and za’atar) or samke harra (fresh wild barramundi fillet topped with tahini sauce, chopped coriander and walnuts). The warm hospitality at Zurouna means you’re likely to linger for desserts, so don’t hesitate to reach for a sharing plate of baklava and Turkish delight for that sweet ending to your meal. Not only are all dishes at Zurouna halal, the restaurant also caters to those with other specific dietary requirements in the form of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. A favourite among Melbourne locals, Zurouna tends to get busy so you’ll want to reserve a table in advance.
