There’s a slice of Lebanon in the heart of Western Sydney now courtesy of Al Aseel. The popular Lebanese restaurant chain has expanded to Parramatta serving a sublime medley of Lebanese food and hospitality, classic desserts and a bevy of beverages. Its seventh Sydney venue is a warm, neat space on the busy Victoria Road with an easy, lounge vibe.

Expect pleasing green hues complimented by classy rattan decor. There’s also plenty of outdoor seating if you want to soak up the sunshine with a tipple in hand.
On the menu, patrons can find classics like Hommos, Sambousek, Arnabeet and one of Lebanon’s most famous delicacies, the kibbeh nayeh. Other standouts, specifically on the Parramatta menu, include kibbeh mishwiyeh with house-roasted spices, hommos Beiruti and crispy whiting with house-made pickled tarator. Another exclusive addition to the Parramatta branch is the ruby salad served with fresh beetroot, pomegranate, goat cheese, walnuts and mixed greens.
