Astounding flavors across all dishes. (We had the multi-course offering that included multiple entrees a main and desserts. Wow! Authentic Mediteranean delishousness. Particular call-outs: all the dips (tatziki, labne, and a garlic dip), wood-fire roasted cauliflower on a hummus schmear with a sweet molassess date sticky-drizzle and dukkah (tripple wowo) and the salted caramel birds nest baklava. Don't know how we fit that in, but every bite was out of this world...

Sensational food and service! The lam dish is to die for, beautifully complemented by the rice pilaf and mother in law salad, and the kibbeh is the best we’ve ever had! Great family run business 😁

Barzaari has changed dramatically. This used to be our favourite middle eastern fine dining restaurant in the inner west. It's now just a Lebanese take away that is trading on the decor and reputation of the previous restaurant. Staff stand around with no idea what to do and can't give advice about the menu. The chef is doing a good job but is turning out standard fare with none of the creativity that epitomised the original restaurant. Sad really.

Barzaari has changed! Used to be a really special and gorgeous place to eat with really interesting dishes, plated up beautifully... I went there recently and the food was equivalent to what I could get from a greek take away shop, the only thing that has remained the same is the cost. Very, very disappointed and saddened by the change over. Was also mostly ignored by waitstaff who never checked in on us or asked if we would like to order more wine, drinks or dessert. Wont be going back.

No high backed chair, only a stool was available so my wife asked the waiter if and when became available could she have one due to her crook back. Ended getting one myself over an hour later from an empty table next to us. My friend and I, who were sharing a banquet for two, our food arrived and my wife's very simple meal order did not arrive until well after we had completely finished our banquet. Fortunately my wife's meal did arrive and was provided at no cost due to her lengthy wait for here dinner. Our original waiter I believe was somewhere else, and not the most welcoming or friendly. Later waiter staff that served us were much better.

I had not been here before but I had seen their Instagram to see what they had. I was not dissapointed. We tried some mezes, had the lamb and chicken souvlaki and some mixed salad mains and it was all amazing. We couldn’t finish it all so we took it home and it was even better the next day. We also finished off with some Turkish coffee (or Greek but it was great) and a slice of baklava. The owners even treated us to a take away almond cake which was so lovely. I highly recommend getting mix of Mezes include the Spiced pickled octopus And Eggplant!

Fantastic food, it looked and tasted fresh and was incredibly tasty and satisfying.

Incredible service. The staff actually helped us to choose what to order and keep it reasonable for a lunch for two.

I would most definitely return the only thing I felt needed improving was the flat white I had after dinner. It was weak and pretty ordinary.

The service was very slow and poor, the two young girls working who looked like they just started there job had no idea what was going on.
The meat was disgusting, it smelt really bad and it was dry. Desert wasn’t exciting. Not worth the money we spent. We booked prior to knowing new owners had taken over. I highly recommend spending your evening and night elsewhere.

Me and my girlfriend went to dinner here just after they renovated. And walked in and there was a beautiful ambience. And really friendly helpful staff. And while dinning there and chatting to the waiters and waitresses I found out it’s a family run restaurant and all the food is home made. And your dinner was amazing we ate far too much as everything was lovely.
