Went to Noura in Hobart Place last week with a friend from Canada who had expressed a preference for Lebanese food. The food was mediocre but what really ruined the evening was the surly and rude staff. We were ignored on arrival, nobody was interested in taking our coats and when we asked to change tables (ours was in direct line of the door and it was a cold night) we were told rudely "you will have to wait" even though there were plenty of tables ready. When we took issue with being spoken to like that we were just about shouted at. We were then brought food we had never ordered (and nobody apologised). Needless to say we will not be going back. I have never written a restaurant review before but was sufficiently appalled that I felt I had to. I wish I had read the other reviews on the restaurant before going.
