Great addition to the new-ish Westfield Sydney food court. I like the plates which consists of felafel, haloumi, meat or fish, along with tabouleh, red cabbage, all the dips/sauces and a side of pita bread. It's a pretty big serve, so if you're a small eater, find someone to share with.
My usual order, however, consists of half of the roasted cauliflower and avocado salad and half of the edamame and chickpea salad.
We visited Jasmin1 in Leichhardt after hearing rave reviews for a similarly named restaurant in Punchbowl. They are independantly owned, but supposedly started by the same guy who sold off these businesses.
We ordered the $25 banquet menu which came with a start of pickles, bread and baba ganoush and hommus, and felafels. The meal then continued with fattoush and tabouleh and a meat platter with grilled chicken, a lamb and a beef sausage thing with garlic and chilli sauces. For dessert, we were given a cinnamon tea and baklava.
It was a really enjoyable meal, given that I am not a huge meat eater. The service varied according to who was serving - there was a really lovely guy, but some of the other newer staff didn't know their way around the menu and were a little bit awkward to talk to. I'd come back if I had to satisfy a lebanese food craving, or check out the other similar restaurants in Punchbowl or Bankstown.
One of my favourite Sydney restaurants. The food is excellent and the service genuine. It's not showy or pretentious, yet the vibe is great.
They are known for their meats, but ironically, my favourite dishes here tend to be vegetarian / seafood dishes. (I am also not a huge meat-eater though.)
Come early (it opens at 6pm) or book if you are coming in a group of six or more.
Oh, and the cocktails are excellent. Try not to have too many.
