If you are in Melbourne and want to treat yourself to the most amazing arabic contemporary food make a booking. Hidden on a hard to find lane it is worth the effort. Superb

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

One of our party had an allergy and they were terrific. They even double checked about a particular dish later on in the meal. You'll have no problem.
