Fodor's Expert Review Abla's

$$ Carlton Lebanese

Matriarch Abla Amad has been re-creating the much loved family recipes from her homeland of Lebanon since 1979. This intimate restaurant resembles a lounge room of a family house, which with Abla walking around talking to diners, adds to the feeling of being looked after. The signature dish, and one of the most well-known in the city, is the exquisitely flavored rice pilaf with minced lamb, chicken, almonds, and pine nuts (A$27); it's also part of a 12-course banquet (A$60) for those hungry enough. Bookings are recommended and you can BYO wine.
