Min Zaman Restaurant is




Get a fantastic meal in a great atmosphere. Min Zaman is one of Melbourne’s favourite Middle Eastern restaurants on Lygon Street in the heart of Carlton – one of the city’s most multicultural suburbs. The presence of Lebanese Australians on either side of the counter is a pretty good indication that this is the real thing.

The traditional Mediterranean decor is enhanced by the aromas coming from the kitchen. Serving up plates of beautifully grilled meats throughout the week, your dining experience is improved on Friday and Saturday nights with live belly dancing.

As one of Melbourne’s best Egyptian and Lebanese restaurants, we serve up only the very best dishes made from recipes that have stood both the test of time.  Our menu includes awesome hommos, Baba Ghanoush (pureed, roasted eggplant), and creamy Labneh for a delicious start to any night. Continue the banquet with our full range of kebabs, seafood and salads, and authentic Middle Eastern lamb dishes.

Vegetarians are more than welcome at our Lygon St location with such delicious meals as betinjan maklee – fried eggplant smothered in yoghourt and mint sauce, served with moujaddara (spiced basmati rice with green lentils and sautéed onions). Make your meal all the more special with our choice of delicious and authentic Lebanese side dishes and fresh salads, featuring the zesty and lively flavours of olives, tabouli and chili.
