Nour is built on a dream of presenting classic Lebanese flavors in a fresh, exciting way. Who said falafel has to roll to the same old beat, meal after meal? Why does eggplant only get to hang out smashed with tahini? Don’t you think the humble vine leaf deserves to encase a little mystery once in a while? At Nour we use an unrestricted approach to create food that is vibrant and bold, yet familiar and comfortable

The food is fantastic but the music is quite loud which reduces conversation. A lot of patrons are using mobile phone flashes which was distracting and annoying. However it was a Saturday night and it was very crowded and we were rushed through so the next sitting could commence.

The food was outstanding. Innvovative twists on old favourites and new tastes and dishes which completely delighted us. We have already recommended it and are planning our next meal at Nour!

A superb meal and definitely one of the best restaurants in Sydney. I recommend the octopus entre that I decided was my favourite dish as soon as I tasted it and before the other meals had been served. Simply outstanding and surprising. Thank-you to the team.

The food is prepared from the best fresh produce, it’s beautifully presented, and it’s very delicious. The restaurant itself and the staff are efficient and welcoming and beautiful. I found the prices were on the high side, but still gave good value for money. The freshly shucked oysters and cauliflower dishes were my favourites. I will be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal@ Nour this week. Service was excellent and so was the food.
Very relaxed vibe throughout the restaurant and very nice green area at the rear of the room.
We highly recommend Nour for interesting and varied dishes and a great experience overall.

My friend and I will surely come back with more family and friends. For someone who's born and raised in Lebanon and cooks Lebanese food, the modern twist on our nation's cuisine that this restaurant puts is superb and refreshing. The food tasted both familiar and surprising, but most importantly delicious. 5 stars on all fronts!

The food was ok, nothing special though. Terrible table service, one waiter almost seemed bipolar. Not a terrible experience but I would dine elsewhere rather than return.

The most beautiful dining experience ever and the very reason why we've been twice in a 3 months. The passionfruit cocktail is amazing, so is everything on the dining menu.

I went to Lebanon without leaving Australia. Greeted and seated by Peter who knew we were celebrating my birthday, we were instantly in for a treat. Food was plentiful and a party for both our eyes and mouths. I nearly cried eating the shawarma, memories of Lebanon assaulting the tastebuds on every bite. The staff were attentive and a slight hiccup on our order was immediately corrected and resulted in a complimentary dish. We honestly could not fault this chic establishment. Thank you for a memorable experience.

We have dined at Nour now on about 4 occasions. Every time is excellent, but last Saturday evening was exceptional. Dan, our waiter, was first class!! Food sensational and excellent wines. Had the fixed banquet. Nour is a wonderful experience - yes it can be expensive (and we were celebrating a family birthday), but in my view, Nour is a must!! Fabulous evening, thanks.

Recommended by my son, we booked for five to celebrate a birthday. From the enthusiastic greeting to the reluctant departure we had a lovely evening. The food was exceptional. Small sharing plates each with a unique flavour. We had eight plates between the five of us and enjoyed every one of them. This is not an inexpensive restaurant but everything from the food and wine to the service and atmosphere is worth every cent. We would definitely come again and would whole-heartedly recommend to anyone for any occasion which did not require a subdued atmosphere :) Thanks for a great evening.

We had to ask for bread 3 times before it was provided to us. We asked 3 times over a period of about 30 minutes.

The waiter forgot my glass of wine which I ordered close to the beginning of our meal. We left 90 minutes later and it still didn't come.

I found that the staff were, however, very pushy about getting us to leave and initially order.

The food here is delicious but most of the male waiters are arrogant and rude which spoils the experience entirely. Twice now our orders have been taken wrongly and this time the ‘waiter’ responded with ‘ this is not McDonald’s madam’ when we asked if the correct dish could be prepared quickly so as not to spoil the repast as the rest of the food had arrived. To give them their due, they did apologise and offer a free Desert.

Very good food and wine. Cocktails were also delicious. Food was slightly over seasoned for my liking but still delicious. On the expensive side of things.

Very cool restaurant with amazing food and great ambiance. We had the set menu which was really, really interesting with lots of unusual flavours. Probably a bit too much food. Excellent value for money .Great service from super glamorous team. Equally amazing wine list with lots of variety from value to super top of the shelf wines. My only minor concern was that the noise levels were insanely loud. We were there on a thursday night. It was quite rightly very popular but be prepared to have to shout!

This is the 3rd time I’ve been to Nour. The food and the restaurant is great value.. you can’t go past their falafel crumpets! They are a must and will have you visit this place more than once. Staff are fabulous as well..

We hadn't really heard of Nour previously but the menu caught our eye and thought to try it out for our client lunch. We were so beyond happily surprised with the food quality, the breadth of the menu and service. Each dish was made to perfection and left us feeling as if we're doing taste testing on masterchef! I personally loved the cauliflower with berries and the fish with the chill oil. But every dish was amazing. Have been recommending it by word of mouth and I urge you try out Nour if you're looking for a cute date night spot, a group dinner catchup or a client meeting!
