Atmosphere was noisy and impersonal. Slow to get people seated. Had booked, but were waiting in queue for ages. Table had not been reserved for us; then they had to move tables together. Style of food was not as website advertised. We ordered the mezze...to share - assuming it would be served first. But all dishes were served at the same time. Flavours were pleasant enough, but it lacked style. It had the feel of family home cooking.More

We visited Naim a few weeks ago after receiving lots of recommendations from people we know. We booked for a Friday evening and the place was full. The service was great and the food tasty. Decent wine selection to go with the new vegan options....The place has a great vibe and the decor is really nice - can see why it's such a popular place.More

It was my first time, but my friend who I went with had been before. Being a vegetarian and with some dietary requirements, I am used to limited choices, but I had many. My friend can eat anything and was happy to choose the lamb....I had the veeg meat balls with a black rice risotto. Wow! It was amazing. I just wish it was a slightly bigger portion. The staff were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and looked happy to be there. I have not had such great service in years. There was a lovely Austrian server who looked after us and was an 11 out of 10. The other staff also demonstrated passion about their work and one staff member even offered to marinate the olives they were selling. It is not a cheap place, but due to the amazing food, service, speed and atmosphere, the prices matched. I would recommend this place to everyone. Thank you. I will be back. EmmaMore

We had high hopes for this Brisbane restaurant but unfortunately we were left extremely disappointed - enough that we didn't finish our meals. The seating was not ideal (one person squished, one with their back to the whole restaurant), the waitress didn't know anything about...the menu, the drinks were way to sweet and that was before our meals even came. We ate half of our entree due to adding way to much sauce. Our meals were as confusing as the menu stated, and terrible in taste. After trying to eat the meals we were dished, we got up and left, to head to another restaurant for a proper dinner. Top that with zero vibe, I would not recommend this restaurant to anybody.More

Group of 5 ate at Naim. Very tasty food, fresh ingredients, good choice. Service a little sloppy with bread arriving when food almost eaten. Liked the felafel, hummus ok, really like the Buratta and fish. Will return

We lunched with a group of friends and all enjoyed our meals - the food was fresh and tasty - although the menu was a bit tricky. One side is for vegetarians and the other side for non vegetarians although most of the meals are...very similar. One vegetarian friend ended up with the non vegetarian meal due to confusion when ordering although they did replace it promptly. If you aren't vegetarian there is only a limited number of meals that feature meat.More

I didn’t read any reviews before the meal as it was selected by a friend as we had a friend who is a vegetarian. I was impressed by the vegetarian options and the fact there was a dedicated menu for it as was our vegetarian...friend. We arrived at 730 and the place was full, we were the last of two tables to leave at 10. The waitress was nice, my lychee drink was gorgeous and my lamb dish was very nice and very filling so I took half home to eat today. In saying all that I can see why the other reviewers had concerns. This restaurant was slightly middle eastern and not with the punch of flavours you’d hope for. Our share plate suggested by the waitress was more a small pizza and not great for share food and the bread was stale. $28 for that was well overpriced compared to my amazing lamb at $35. All in all i liked my dish and the other ladies liked their mains (veg moussaka, meat moussaka and risotto) but there were some less than ideal flavours and the desserts on display actually looked quite underwhelming (cinnamon bun may be tasty but it looked quite unappetising on display).More

Not only the food is great, but the view is stunning and the staff is super friendly! I got the vegan option of the hummus bowl and the moussaka. It has been very difficult to choose from the menu, cause all the options look insanely...good! Thank you for the experience!!More

We dined here with a group of 9 friends for a birthday dinner. We were all very dissapointed. Really not sure what the hype is all about for this restaurant. As a larger group there was a very good variety of food off the menu...on the table and nothing was good. Every dish was completely over complicated with a ridiculous amount of different flavours on one plate ... too much. Pick a couple of complimentary flavours and stick with that. All of us were saying the same thing about our different meals, too much going on, its confusing. Dessert wasn't much better... a tasteless meringue shard, the strangest chocolate mousse flavoured with rosewater does not make a turkish delight Pavlova with fresh berries even if you close your eyes while eating it. Speaking of fresh berries, I'm not sure there was any. All in all I would not waste your money trying this restaurant with so many other worthy contenders in the area.More

After a lengthy wait our main course was lukewarm reheated food. The pastry was like cardboard. The chicken dish was a reheated dry leg of chicken sat on a bed of what looked like tinned tomato with a sprinkle of chopped olives. Won’t be rushing...backMore
