Zenobia, North Strathfield

Some restaurants are worth the travel. The chicken shop in Belmore, certain kebab shops in Auburn, famous places in Granville... so does Zenobia deserve to be on this list for beautiful middle eastern food?

When you enter the restaurant, you have the option of sitting down on a normal table or you can sit down in a cushion lower seat (don't worry, you won't be on the floor).  Overall I found the food largely underwhelming.

The haloumi was crumbed in a thick dough. It took away the natural saltiness of the haloumi.  So over priced at $18 and lacking in taste.  The chicken was slightly dry. It was mostly cooked well but just lacked in any real flavour. The rice was perfectly cooked but I just wasn't a fan of any fruit in the rice.

I don't think I'd come back.
Panfried Haloumi Cheese $18

Riz A-La Dijaj - Flat baby chicken with basmati rice, sultana, apricot and yoghurt $31.5
