The food wasn’t spectacular, and considering the hefty price tag for the dishes, the serving size just didn’t add up. It’s a shame that after the meal, I kept thinking, “I can get the same food for a fraction of the price tag”.

5 meat dishes to share between 4 people for $154 and out comes these small plates… for $154?! GAHHH, give me Habibs in Bankstown anytime.

    I had a Fatouche in Dubai, it’s the best salad ever! I love the tangyness and the crunch of the fried bread. Leftovers turned into something magical! Yum! Unfortunately, Emma’s on Liberty does seem pricey 🙁

      I agree.. one of the better tasting salads out there! Pricey it was, but at least I can say that I’ve been there, done that… and never again. LOL!
