Description: One of Sydney’s highest rated Lebanese restaurants, the El-Phoenician, garnered star-driven praises from The Sunday Telegraph proving it is a contemporary and stylistic showcase with a modernistic approach to an arrestingly innovative Middle-Eastern food styling. The El-Phoenician's artistically executed menu and skillfully developed wine lists have been assembled by pedigreed Chefs and an award winning Sommelier - that are truly bent on awakening your consciousness.

Went to El-Phoenician as staying locally for business. I had been here many years ago so it's always a good sign that a restaurant is still trading some 7 years after my first visit. It's also nice to go to a restaurant that has a) table cloths and b) proper table napkins that are not made of paper.
We went one evening and the place was pretty busy with several large groups. Service was pretty good and, as with most Lebanese or Greek restaurants, the dishes were more than sufficient in size. The only down size was that a colleague found a staple in the hummus but this was immediately replaced and removed from the bill. Will go back again as the food was very tasty

As I was staying just round the corner, this place got flagged up as decent. No surprises there, the food was satisfactory, with the usual Lebanese fare of houmous, skewered lamb and chicken. Pretty good choice of wine, and even though this kind of thing can often backfire on restaurant, their belly dancers were entertaining. Definitely give them a chance if you find yourself in Parramatta.

It is really hard to find restaurants that are conducive to conducting business over lunch. Too often it's so hard to hear without having to speak loudly. This place is different. It's quiet, and a good distance between other tables means you can talk with a degree of privacy too. The food was excellent fresh and tasty. Linen napkins are a nice touch too. A Parramatta staple.

This is my second visit to El-Phoenician, my daughter goes a bit more frequently, the food is very good and it is Licenced. All the normal Lebanese foods are on the menu and of course it is fun with the share plates as it always get everything going.

We had dinner at El-Phoenician restaurant last week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was wonderful with shaslicks and multiple dips being favoured by our group. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even offering to validate parking for one of our group. A great dinner and will go back again next time in Sydney.
