What can I say. Went for lunch today with friends before seeing a movie. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was plentiful and yummy. The hot chips were amazing. Very good value for money. Make sure you go with an empty tummy.

Not typical middle eastern food. No limonana. I'ts not what I'd call middle eastern, but the food was of good quality and, there was plenty. Staff very friendly. If I had no exposure to middle eastern food, it would've been great.

We do not sell alcohol but customers may BYO their wine or beer to enjoy with meals. We have recently introduced a corkage charge of $5 per person to help cover the costs associated. Regards, Linda

Description
El Attar Middle Eastern Grill offers a wide selection of authentic Middle Eastern dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. Grab a flavoursome shawarma or fresh falafel wrap for lunch, or come for a hearty char-grilled dinner followed by homemade Egyptian sweets. We have a range of Arabic softdrinks, teas and sweet and strong Arabic coffee. We also serve shisha in a hookah, a traditional water pipe. A selection of Middle Eastern groceries is also available in store.
