Last Friday night I dined at Almustafa’s in Glebe with two of my friends. The restaurant was very cosy and the staff were friendly and welcoming. As it was a Friday evening, there was entertainment in the form of a belly dancer. We were quite surprised when she came out as we were in the middle of a conversation and the music and dancing suddenly changed, and kind of stunned us! She strutted her stuff and it was fun but a bit too in-your-face for me. I think she picked up our vibe as she swiftly moved passed our table.
All of the food was really tasty. I’m trying to be critical, but I just can’t be! The salad was very tasty. My friend’s friend recommended it and I’m so glad that we ordered it. The ‘secret dressing’ must have done the trick. The falafels were filled with chickpeas, and they were perfect with the accompanying sauce. The grilled chicken scewers were my favourite dish of the night. They were fleshy, juicy and just the right amount to satisfy those grilled chicken cravings (yes, we were having cravings). The Lamb Shawarma was a little bit dry and was my least favourite dish, but I’m not normally a fan of lamb, so I don’t know if I’m the best judge.
I should mention the service. The service there was great. They were attentive but not intrusive and we did not have to wait too long for our food (always good when you’re hungry).
