Reviews of El Jannah

  • Always a big fan of the chicken. Sometimes the skewers can be undercooked, but still tastes good. Good pricing too

    Ever since El Jannah changed ownership the quality's gone downhill.

    Ordered takeaway one night, no pickles, the chicken was tasteless and the hommus was watered down and looked like cement paste.

    A bit sad since this used to be my favourite lebanese chicken joint.

    El Jannah is probably one of the best places in Sydney to get the most delicious bang out of your buck.

    Located on the main street right near the station, you can smell the charcoal chicken a mile away. I took a trip out of the way with my sister and Mr N on Saturday afternoon (so worth it) to grab a quick bite to eat before heading home. Since we've been here a handful of times, we know the consistency of the food is one to keep you returning.

    It may be slightly overwhelming to order when it's busy (and I'm pretty certain they are always busy) since it's loud, bustling and I'm never sure how many queues they have at any one time. It's a bit of an organised mess. Once ordered, it's not too hard to find a table, if you can't find out straight away, just linger around as people are in and out pretty quickly and within 2 minutes your food comes out.

    We ordered one whole chicken with is served with pickles, bread and garlic sauce. Also fattoush (best salad ever), a wrap and large chips. Between the 3 of us this was more than plenty and it only came to about $40.

    The chicken is probably the best thing about this place, always on point and served hot. The wrap is good I guess, but i think they add to much chicken in it for me. Chips are hot, crisp and seasoned well. Whilst the salad breaks up the heavy meal up well with a sharp sumac dressing balances out all the chicken you're consuming.

    Sometimes I find myself using my hands without even realising, so I'm pretty sure I'll keep coming back.

    Highlight: Chicken and fast service
    Lowlight: Not date night material, wait a few months into the relationship

    "You know you're in Granville when you smell charcoal chicken". Lively, buzzing and packed full of locals (and non locals), makes this place is a fun place to visit. People go here for the food. Period. Ordering is done at the counter and you're given a table number. Find your own seat and before you know it, your meal's brought out to you. Service is a little slow to clear tables, but that's not surprising with the quick turnover of patrons and how busy the place is... and that's ok because let's face it... I'm just here for the food! I've also been to the Punchbowl shop and I can definitely say that I prefer the Granville store - the chicken seemed a little dry at Punchbowl.
    • Totally agree with your last comment! Been to both stores - the chicken is definitely better in Granville :)
  • LOVE the Garlic paste, everyone that is thinking of going here has to try it. Really great place to grab a feed- the food is awesome. Although you might be waiting a while if you're in no rush it's worth the wait. The staff aren't all that helpful or nice, but I guess when you've got 20 people in line, no one has the time.
    Still I come here quite often because I love the food!

    I don't know why people complain about the wait, but this place is worth waiting for! Family chicken meal deal for $20? Where else can you get that? This place is ALWAYS packed. From morning til late at night, I've never seen any business this busy. The chicken farmers must be laughing all the way to the bank. The garlic sauce is a must - thick, creamy and genuine. Will be back next week!

    Famous for the Charcoal chicken and garlic sauce amongst the Western population. This really is a must try. Although i personally don't like the chicken wrap only because i feel the sauce tends to get lost with the enormous amount of filling (chicken & salad). I highly recommend the chicken and sauce or the kebabs.

    It is a very casual setting to dine in. Just keep in mind this place is packed most of the time, so make sure you have no plans the day you plan to try out the food.
  • Although the food is great - I find the staff are RUDE. Also, waiting times on takeaway orders are LONG. Especially at lunch times.

  • I absolutely love this place. Great value for money. My kids would eat it every night if they could. A must try is the Garlic sauce. Can not recommend this place any higher.

    Having been here almost once a month, for the last couple of years, I'm wondering how it is that I haven't reviewed this family restaurant. My husband even bought 'me' a food processor after tasting toum (that's the garlic sauce heaven stuff, served with the charcoal chicken). In all fairness, there's not much wrong with this place except for the long queues and sometimes abrupt service. They could be friendlier, but heck, they've got my vote!
