Our authentic family recipes celebrate a generous Lebanese culture tradition where whole food ingredients rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes and healthy plant based fats from olive oil, nuts and seeds are combined with spices and herbs to produce incredible flavours. We bring the authentic flavours from the streets of Lebanon to your plate.

Sourced from ethical growers and sustainable farms, our awesome food is always made fresh. You really can taste the difference, from the tangy flavour punch of sumac, to the nutty toasted sesame seeds in our za’atar and the slightly sweet and salty goat’s labneh. The quality of the ingredients we use shines through every time. 


We combine the Lebanese and Middle Eastern diets with fresh, local, premium produce to create an incredibly healthy and delicious food experience. Our menu selections range from lunch & picnic boxes to seasonal grazing platters and hot food. Our team will happily customise a menu for your special event or occasion and can accommodate any specific dietary requirements.
