Amazing! My family and i went to AL Amir on Scoopons for my Grandad's 83rd birthday. He was unable to get upstairs to the restaurant so we dined downstairs in the Italian restaurant below. The waitress was very accommodating and polite and brought all the food (6 courses of it) downstairs to us. The food was delicious and there was something there for everyone (9 of us including my fussy eater husband and my 1 year old son)to enjoy. Highly recommend this restaurant. While ur there definitely try their drink Al Amir infusion... non alcoholic and sweetly satisfying.

A real gem... I dined with a friend and we shared 4 mezze dishes and a tabouli between us and left completely satisfied... Great variety of flavours. Great atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the entertainment... It really adds to the experience! A good wine list and relatively inexpensive if buying by the bottle. Recommended!!

This is very out of date. New ownership and we dined there recently. They did not have a liquor licence because of new owners but we enjoyed ourselves, especially my husband. Ask for the special non alcohol Al Amir infusion drink, it really is worthy of a taste. The food was crisp, fresh and amazing tastes.

Situated on the first floor, this restaurant has nice views over the busy intersection of Rundle Street with Frome Street. Make sure you book ahead and specify that you want a window table, as it is great to watch the crowds below as you dine. However, inside there is plenty to look at too, particularly on a Friday and Saturday night when they have a live belly dancer. This adds to the atmosphere and not to mention gives you a free show! Whilst the ambience is the best part of this restaurant, the food is not too far behind. The flavours are fresh and wholesome. The servings, whilst not big are sufficient to feel full when you leave. An excellent restaurant, and highly recommended.

I went to Al Amir last week, I was very much looking forward to the menu, that was extensive and exciting, BUT the food was below average. They tried hard to make things taste lovely and the presentation was lovely but the portions were so small! My husband ordered the kafta (lamb skewers) and it came out as 3 tiny skewers of meat (maybe a flatened out chevapachi), a table spoon of rice and some strange lettuce leaves that were prickly and spicy. In all, it was a very small dish for $25, a price of a steak in somewhere like hogs breath! He was mighty dissapointed and left hungry! I decided in my tradition to get a few small dishes to try. Cauliflower (which I thought was battered, instead was oven baked and not cooked properlt), the Falafel's (very very dry and lacking of spices) and tabouli which looked like it might have been a day old lacking the freshness and crunchiness, garlic that I am used to. My hubby and I ended up with crook tummys for some reason (could have been tabouli....) Wasnt happy with the wine list as most things came in a bottle and not by glass, the atmosphere was nice and the belly dancer was very entertaining as well as the staff friendly but not very helpful with choosing off the menu, especially for a group who hadnt had Middle Eastern food before. I reckon save your pennys and go to Jeruselums in Hindley, much nicer busier cafe atmosphere, no frills but the best food!!!.

We had the unforunate experience of dining here with a recently bought scoopon. When we first walked in it felt like we were in Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmare. There were horrible looking panoramic pictures of what i assume was Greece stuck in arches to the side, garbage at the entrance and chairs that looked like they belong in a community hall. Our welcome was pleasant enough and we got our first round of drinks. But our first problem arised, the lemonade we ordered resembled soda water or soluable panadol. Next we got a "trio of dips" which tasted like it had been store bought, and some strange looking olives with a slice of gerkin and what we assumed was beetroot? The bread we got to dip with tasted like a tortilla. The best part is it wasnt even heated just cold sliced tortilla. Our next course was filo pastry filled with different kinds of cheese which resembled more a Coles brand cheese spring roll. The third course was bearable, some form of beef pastry thing yet it resembled more a sausage roll than anything Mediterranean. Our fourth course was called "Whitebait" which was more like fish french fries, minus any form of good taste. The fifth course which was called a mixed grill but consisted of 6 skewers of different kinds of meat, nowhere near this so called mixed grill. Again it tasted store bought and resembled McDonalds version of chicken skewers. To avoid anymore disappointment we left before the next course came out. I understand that with a scoopon your margins are small, but the whole idea of a scoopon is to get people coming back to your restaurant. I can assure you i feel like i've lost $50 and that im never coming back. I advise anyone with a scoopon - get a refund.
