The original Kazbar at Far East Square has been hugely popular for eight or nine years. It has a great bar that must be the envy of his neighbours, good Middle Eastern fare and, the piéce de resistance, a gorgeous belly-dancer who shakes her delectable torso at 9.30pm and 10.30pm from Thursdays to Saturdays.
The mainly Lebanese menu is designed for sharing. The substantial mix mezze platter ($18.00) showcases the talents of Syrian chef Kasem, most recently from the Intercontinental Dubai – crunchy falafel, fresh cheese borek, hummus whipped to creamy lightness, excellent babaganoush and pleasantly smoky moutabel. Other highlights included a perfect tabbouleh (parsley salad, $14.00), three premium lamb chops ($31.50) served with harissa (chilli paste), and authentic chicken and lamb kebabs ($17.00). The mousaka ($16.00) is a must, but do share it.
A great vibe, a friendly staff and yummy food makes this a good choice for a casual get-together.
