ZAHLI - Our name comes from a beautiful area in Lebanon where the Bardouni river flows from Mount Sannine. Amongst other things, Zahli is steeped in the tradition of Lebanon’s famous mezza and on warm evenings there is nothing finer than dining outdoors at one of the excellent restaurants that line the river banks there. Wine and poetry flow in equal measure – there have been many poets and writers born in Zahli and some of the best wines and araks in the region originate in this small area.
Here at Sydney’s Zahli in Elizabeth Street, we have brought that experience to life. We have created an environment, atmosphere and a menu that will transport you to the banks of the Sannine on a warm night. We are obsessed with delivering excellence – in taste, service, experience and memories. You won’t find clichés here – our chef and his team take the traditional as their starting point and fast-forward to fresh Australian dishes packed with flavour.
You may well have been to a Lebanese restaurant before. But none of them were quite like Zahli.
