There will always be a place for traditional Middle Eastern restaurants pumping out baba ghanoush, falafel and tabouleh, and Sydney has some stunning old-school joints. Thievery, however, makes the case that there's also a place for cheeky upstart contemporary Middle Eastern, and that it's somewhere you want to be right now.
Distressed walls are a sure fire way for a restaurant designer to add a bit of edge to an outfitting. At Thievery they've just gone ahead and smashed massive holes here and there. It's an audacious flourish which befits Thievery's approach to Middle Eastern food — there's an obvious love for the cuisine here, but also a determination to take it in bold new directions.
