    Arabellas does really great Lebanese food. The Kebbi Neyah is the best. Everything tastes great and is so fresh.

    Bravo Arrabella delivery - ordered a mixed plate for one and a side - generous proportions and fabulously fresh, melt-in-the-mouth lamb and chicken, beautifully balanced flavours and the home-made pickles are divine. Would definitely order again, very highly recommended by this jaded business traveller. Just wish there were dessert options as well.

  • Overall 8.3 |  Food 9  |  Value 7  |  Speed 9

    Generous portions, delicious food and arrived before ETA. Between the two of us we had the Chicken Schwarma, Fattoush and Mansaf Lamb. All really good, and came with a large side of bread. Plenty of leftovers for tomorrow! Looking forward to ordering again :)

  • Overall 7.7 |  Food 9  |  Value 5  |  Speed 9

    The food was absolutely delicious and arrived before the ETA. But it is insanely expensive. We paid $21 for four pieces of halloumi that had a few olives and some sliced up tomato scattered around it. However we didn't get that horrible feeling in our stomaches that so often comes with ordering take away and it was really nice food. But too expensive to order regularly.

    A tad pricey, but the food was really delicious, came before the ETA too.

    Highly recommend, food is delicious and quick. I use them once a week a now Cathy

  • Overall 10 |  Food 10  |  Value 10  |  Speed 10

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND the following: Coriander Potatoes, Mixed Pastries, and Hoummous topped with meat - the best and freshest tasting Lebanese I have had in a long time and v fast delivery as well. A little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for!

    Food was delicious and fresh, Value for money is good. Have nothing bad to say I love this place

  • Overall 8 |  Food 7  |  Value 8  |  Speed 9

    The delivery was very speedy and the food was fresh and plentiful. I wasn't completely sold on all the flavour combinations, but the fattoush was delicious.

      I dined here on a Saturday night & enjoyed my time here immensely, and would definitely recommend it to others seeking yummy authentic Lebanese food & a fun lively atmosphere. Our waitress was very welcoming & showed us to a large table near the front window, and was able to answer any questions we had, we enjoyed attentive but not over the top service which was nice for a change. The food was the star attraction of course with the lamb shawarma having a fuller flavor than many I have had before; the mansaf dejaj had a very nice tenderized pulled chicken topping which I really enjoyed having never had the dish before. And we enjoyed the belly dancing show (if you’re up for some fun: joining in is encouraged!) All in all a great night out for my anniversary, with a more unusual treat at the end of champagne & shisha out the front under their cozy heaters. I’m really glad I tried it despite mixed reviews online & thought I’d share my experience of a little of Lebanon in Newtown that I really enjoyed.

      The food was good, but the restaurant noisy and the MC over familiar would be OK for loud larger parties, but impossible to have any conversation with anyone within our dining group Also felt there was pressure from the waiter to order $40.00 set menu, we were the guest of others so didn't want to rock the boat, but had to explain to waiter.manager why didn't want a set menu for a teen

    • Overall 7.5 |  Food 8  |  Ambience 7  |  Value 7  |  Service 8

      The food was great and the service was very good with one slight niggle. We were told it was a set menu. I dont like set menus, preferring to choose items I like or want to experience. I hope the management heeds, this as I notice that there are some other reviews that mention this. In our experience, the waiter was very understanding and brought us a menu immediately. All the wait staff were friendly, amiable and helpful. The food was really good and even my fussy 6 year old tried new things and declared herself a lover of Lebanese food. We will definitely come back again and bring our friends.

    • Overall 6.3 |  Food 8  |  Ambience 8  |  Value 6  |  Service 3

      Bellydancer was great entertainment. Food was nice, except there was only one vegetarian dish to choose, from the Mains. Even though there were 3 of us dining, the waiter insisted we order the banquet - we preferred to mix our meat and vege dishes. When we went against the waiter's wishes he was not very pleasant. We received the ontray and 10 minutes later the main dishes arrived!! Nice food, good location but the the service needs to improve.

    • Overall 5.8 |  Food 7  |  Ambience 7  |  Value 7  |  Service 2

      Foods was great, and the belly dancing created a great atmosphere, but unfortunately the whole thing was spoiled by the stressed and rude wait staff who made us feel as though we were a thorn in their side and they had somewhere better to be! Unfortunately, it made none of us keen to go back.

    • Overall 6.8 |  Food 6  |  Ambience 5  |  Value 7  |  Service 9

      a good spot for a nice, quick(ish!) meal if you're heading out and about in newtown. Some dishes are extraordinary, some decidedly average. The garlic dip is insane!
