Tahini Lebanese Diner

Tahini is one of the latest eateries to open up in the legal district of the CBD. Offering Lebanese cuisine, the venue itself oozes with character and offers both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as eat in or take away options.

The menu is extensive offering a range of wraps, skewers, salads and dips and, most importantly, they do serve wine! To eat I couldn't go past the Tablieh - choice of wrap with chips, salad and dip for only $18.  For the wrap I chose the Kafta - spice minced beef with hummus, pickles, parsley onion and sumac.  The wrap itself was dry and lacked flavour, so thank goodness for the side of hummus and an offering of chilli sauce to liven the dish up. Otherwise,  the chips were cooked well and deliciously seasoned, and the slaw was a delicious and complimentary accompaniment.

The staff were incredibly helpful and all had smiles on their faces - a little slow at times (something to remember if wanting a quick lunch) but we did dine at Tahini in the middle of their lunch rush. 

All in all, the meal was pleasant enough to try Tahini again, but nothing I'd rush back for.

Food: 2.5/5
Decor: 4/5
Service: 3.5/5
