REVIEW

A former garage in North Fremantle seems an unlikely destination for some of the state's boldest Middle Eastern and Levantine flavours, not least because the setting - stark white walls, a bar made from a repurposed shipping container - barely hints at what's to come. One pass at the menu,though, and it's clear where Kurt Sampson's allegiances fall. An otherwise textbook Greek salad is crowned with a huge portion of barbecued cuttlefish. Middle-Eastern spice and the gentle sting of toum bring chicken ribs to life, just as roast eggplant topped with mint yoghurt and pomegranate ensure vegetarians don't miss out. Casual and upbeat might be the  restaurant's credo (see also: superb, interesting pizza along the lines of hot sausage, potato and silverbeet pide) but energetic staff never overlook diners' needs. While the menu is focused, the wine list crosses many regions - with bottles from Europe, the Americas and Australia.
