About Arabella

Located on lively King St, Arabella is a wonderfully popular Lebanese restaurant bustling with loyal visitors since first opening in 2002. The decor follows a sleek Lebanese theme with artifacts tucked into alcoves, an energetic open kitchen and carved wood paneling cast against muted chocolate browns and warm grey hues alongside a lavish cushioned corner. The menu created by Head Chef, Mohamad Zouhour, whose experience includes time in Dubai and Beirut, is sure to provide tantalizing dishes using fresh produce, with as much created in the kitchen as possible, right down to Lebanese breads. Delve into a flavoursome feast, starting with cold mezze like dolmades and potato kebeh with herbs and onions before moving on to marinated chicken shwarma topped with onion, tomato and garlic sauce.

Great atmosphere. Always welcoming. The absolute best Lebanese food in Sydney. Every dining experience is different with a new culinary creation. Wouldn't bother going anywhere else.

All in all, an excellent restaurant for lovers of Lebanese. Well worth a visit!


Nice food, nice location and nice people at Arabella! Love it there! I especially recommend the chicken and the dip platter, very yummy!


One of the nicest experiences I had last weekend. I celebrated my birthday there and it was fabulous. Lots of food... atmosphere and great entertainment. We ordered the Arabella Banquet and it was a great way to taste the various dishes that this place has to offer.


This is a great restaurant and the service is fantastic. The entertainment was well worth the money. My only issue was that we went at an "off-peak" time and the cost was reasonable. I then went again a few weeks later and the cost of my entire meal only paid for a part of the meal the second time around. They basically charged me the same but for less food.


We had my friends Hens Night on Saturday night and Mohammed & Staff we fantastic. The atmoshphere & Food was unbelievable. We had a great night and left very satisfied. Thanks to Mohammed and his staff again for making it a great night. We will be back !! Sue from Camden


Just came back from here and had to write a review, it was awesome!
The best lebanese food I've had. Reading other reviews it seems like it does get noisy on a friday/saturday night (I've walked past a few times). This being a Tuesday the Ambience was ok.
The food was fantastic though best lebanese food I've ever had, The vegetarian banquet was top shelf stuff! I ate everything I could and walked out of there with the fullest belly I've had since the 90's.
The service was friendly, fine and invaluable!
I give this place a big and slow nod, a grin, a raised eyebrow and a "YEEEAH!"
