Naim brings the exquisite taste of modern Middle East-inspired cuisine to a quaint corner shop on a Paddington hilltop.

The spacious wooden floored dining room is divided in two by a gorgeous mosaic tiled bar and a tiny coffee lounge alcove with potted palms, with the rear section enjoying fantastic views over the pyramid tin roofs of Paddington and in the distance, the hills of the D’Aguilar Range.

Naim, Paddington

The all-day foodie’s menu at Naim is an east-meets-west gathering of Israeli, Tunisian, Moroccan and contemporary Oz dishes and flavours.

Naim, Paddington

For breakfast, Naim serves up dishes such as chocolate waffles and smashed avo on toast with Persian feta and poached eggs as well as delicious Middle Eastern flavoured dishes such as Shakshuka (Tunisian style baked eggs) and Corn Shawarma Ratatouille with poached eggs.
