The Venue

Get ready to discover a little piece of the Middle East in the heart of Sydneys CBD.

Teleport to Tel Aviv; this will be the ultimate destination to hang out, share plates and chat til late. Dont let the unique design fool you into thinking this place is like your typical takeaway shop; our open space will be split in two grab some takeaway eatery from the kiosk at the front, or make your way down to the bar for a more personalised seated dining experience offering mezze style dishes.


The vibe will be eclectic and energetic, just what you need if you feel like and upbeat atmosphere with traditional music flowing through your veins. We must warn you to come with an empty stomach


Headed up by chef Simon Zalloua, guests can enjoy a vegetarian-friendly menu with a range of flavour-packed plates and pitas, alongside plenty of legumes, vegetables and dishes from a charcoal grill.
