Our Menu



You will not be leaving Anater Lebanese Restaurant hungry, that much we can guarantee. Instead you’ll be full of hot, cold and wonderfully varied mezza, fresh seafood, meat from the grill and punchy, exciting salad, all of which, we might add, is as genuinely Lebanese as it’s possible to find in Sydney.

On Forest Road in Bexley, Anater Lebanese Restaurant offers something a bit different and it’s a very pleasant trip indeed. Expect neatly presented plates of food, a stylish dining space and a warm welcome.

A simply cracking restaurant by all accounts so be sure to reserve a table way ahead of time.
