Dunyazad is best in a group so you can order lots of different foods.

This was our second visit and it was just as good as we remembered. We were stuffed full from Sheik's banquet - highly recommended. We had a bottle of wine and that was really good too.
Thank you Sarah!!

I have been here 3 time and all times have enjoyed the night. Belly dancer was fun for the kids although it would have been nicer if she came on a bit earlier than 9:30 on a Saturday. Service wasn't as good as it has been in the past though... It looked like we were stuck being served by someone just starting in the service industry as he was pretty clueless...however the other staff were great.

Can't remember how many times we have been here. It is always a great night. Welcoming, great service, fabulous food and always consistent. We will be back yet again. A real favourite.

Banquet was great although it has slimmed down throughout the years. Lots of things that are not in it now that previously was, service was fantastic.

Just a wonderful experience - atmosphere was wonderful, restaurant was full of families and friends celebrating - really buzzing. The food was exceptional - tasy & fresh and the meats were so tender and full of flavour. Had waited years to eat here and was not disappointed!
Thanks Kate, Hopefully we don't have to wait too long to see you again!

with the change of ownership, it wasn't quite as good as it used to be
Hi Lianie, We would love to hear what we could have done to improve. We have tried to keep everything the same even keeping the previous owner onboard to make sure standards are never dropped.

About Dunyazad

Aladdin’s Cave Glowing lanterns. Exotic fabrics. Ornaments. And a vivid ‘Arabian Nights’ mural. No we’re not talking about the movie set of Aladdin. We’re talking about the lively Middle Eastern restaurant, Dunyazad. Located just off the main drag in North Balwyn, this neighbourhood gem doesn’t give much away from the outside, but inside, it's like Aladdin’s cave. The menu is authentically Middle Eastern with intricately spiced and flavoured dishes like samkee harrah (fish of the day seasoned with garlic, coriander and walnuts, topped with tahina sauce and paprika) and vegetarian betijan (fried eggplant with yoghurt and mint sauce on a bed of saffron rice served with green beans). Come on Friday and Saturday nights for an even livelier dining experience, and watch in awe as the dazzling belly dancers put on a showstopping performance. Best dish: samkee harrah
