Talk about a dazzling start. Aalia isn’t quite yet two years old and already it has claimed a place as one of Australia’s most exciting new restaurants. With chef Paul Farag leading the kitchen, Aalia’s premium approach to showcasing the food culture of the Arab world has won the restaurant two hats in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide (“This kitchen goes beyond the obvious”) and five stars from Time Out (“the sheer ambition alone is enough to make Aalia worthy of any diner's bucket list”) plus a legion of adoring fans.

For one night only this festival, you can taste the excitement as Paul lays out an Aalia-style spread at its Chapel Street sister restaurant Henrietta – a feast for anyone who thrills to the power of Middle Eastern food culture.
