 OSCAR’S TETA SNAPSHOT:

  • Its best feature is: the generous bread baskets that come with the hummus and baba ghanoush; understated suburban location; accessible and affordable menu.
  • Make sure you try: baba ghanoush, sish tawook, spiced squid, kofta.
  • Come here for: casual Lebanese feasts, cheap eats, laid-back dinners.
  • We’re eating: spiced squid salad with tomato, coriander and pomegranate sauce; labne with pide; sambousik pastries with spiced lamb, almonds and yoghurt dip; lamb kofta; chicken shish with garlic butter and grilled broad beans; snapper with tahini.
  • If you like this you’ll like: Taksim Square, Moonee Ponds; Bar Saracen, CBD; Teta Mona, Brunswick East.
  • It’ll set you back: smaller mezze plates $8-$18; larger mezze plates $18-$25; sides $6-$10; cocktails $18; beer and wine from $8.

With its understated frontage that looks more than a suburban accountancy firm than a restaurant, Oscar’s Teta in Spotswood is easy to walk past. But those who indulge their curiosity and have a peek inside are richly rewarded with plates of honest, homely food and enthusiastic service.

Oscar’s Teta is a relaxed, family-run Lebanese restaurant that serves up generous portions of traditional Lebanese mezze plates based on recipes passed down from grandma.

Make sure you bring a hunger if you come to Oscar’s Teta. As most of the mezze dishes at this family-friendly restaurant are under $20, you may be tempted to order everything on the menu. We ordered two larger dishes of kotfa and chicken shish, plus a couple of starters, and were completely and utterly stuffed.  High five to grandma!
