Tucked under the landmark Dominion Building, this hopping subterranean Lebanese restaurant attracts budget noshers and cool hipsters in equal measure. If you're not sure what to go for, try the minted pan-seared scallops (dinner only) or consider the $52 grand feast for two, which includes tiger prawns, and juicy lamb and chicken skewers. There are also plenty of vegetarian options.

There's a real fresh-made feel to the food here and an atmosphere both welcoming and funky – due mainly to the staff who do a good job of keeping things lively. Consider taking a photo of the building on your way out: the copper-topped edifice is among the most iconic old buildings in the city and was once one of the tallest.
