Gday, I was strolling through #wollongongmall the sarvo,when I saw Samara workers/owners... Walked passed them with a smile,then thought...I've been reading all this rubbish on fb,social media,of targeted attacks and what not,that these people have had to deal with... All I want to say really, is to the owners,amazing australian/Lebanese people I shook hands with,and the lovely lady in her religious attire,the best revenge is success! Do not give In to the single minded haters!. This is our world,with a bunch of idiots in it,no matter race,religion,beliefs.. And to the ""Aussie pride haters" (proudly wearing many Australian tattoos,and heart) Do not judge books by their cover, every human is an individual. This may get noses out of joint,especially with a few of my own mates.. But deadset,this family have amazing food,and the hand shake I received today of an amazing,family and success driven humans,that are proud to be Australian/lebanese and offering beautiful food,customer service, is where any absolute BULLSHIT vandalism and what not,should STOP!!!!!!!! anywayz,hang in there,don't be bullied by minority guys. Looking forward to dinner with my family at your amazing establishments soon. ✌#STOPTHEIDOCY!!

Inspired by Ayad Akhtar's thought-provoking play 'Disgraced', we're having a chat about identity, inclusion and community in our local context, and we've invited Omar Nemer of Samaras - instigator of the local #Illeatwithyou movement - and Burhan Zangana, a Kurdish man from Northern Iraq who now proudly calls Australia home, to share experiences of transition, identity and community. We'd love you to hear your experiences too! Please join us this Saturday afternoon in the foyer at 5pm.

Thank you so much for catering for our dads 60th last night at the last minute. Everything was great from placing the order to the delivery. Everyone was really impressed with the food and you saved us from a washed out day.

Did you know Samaras can cater our delicious food for your next function? Theres nothing better than the smile on our customers faces at tonights dinner party...perhaps it's the endless supply of garlic sauce and lamb shawarma? Happy 60th Birthday James, we hope you have a great night :):)

So proud of my amazing brother for all the good work he is doing in our community. Yesterday morning I joined him at Warilla High School where he was a guest speaker talking to the students about Advocacy, and the campaigns he has been running to promote acceptance, harmomy and positivity in our community. For those of you who know Omar, you would know that all he wants to do is make a positive change in this world, and your doing a great job habibi :) Love you, from your big sis Ally Xx

The day Samaras MedBar went to Warrawong High School for Harmony Day. We showed them how to do our Traditional Lebanese Dance (Dabke). Started off with 4 kids and turned into this!

very sad and angry to hear of your troubles

Published Tim Goodsell on 2016-05-06 06:20:23 GMT

#illeatwithyou Its horrible to think that these break-ins are religiously targeted. During this time remember that as Islamic extremists don't represent the Islamic faith, these malicious delinquents don't represent the wider community that adore your food and service. Keep the amazing food coming, your a treasure to this community. :D

Published Sophie May Murray on 2016-05-06 03:42:44 GMT

Samaras - sorry to hear about your break in. Don't let racist bogans get to you, tolerance and love will overcome. Keep on fighting the good fight. #I'll eat with you

Published David Balsom on 2016-05-06 01:24:23 GMT

I just read the article in the Illawarra Mercury regarding the recent break ins to your beautiful restaurant and the damage that was caused, needless to say it was distressing to read, can't believe how the staff at Samaras would feel. Me and wife come in quite regularly to the restaurant in Wollongong, my wife orders the Beirut Chicken and I order the meat platter for one, our meals are always delicious with little or nothing left on the plates, we are always looked after by the accomadating staff who are always very approachable, friendly and highly professional. I personally love the middle eastern vibe and find it to be very relaxing and calming. Samaras will only grow stronger and me and my wife as well as many other people in the Illawarra will continue to eat at your restaurant for many years to come. Peace. #wewillalwayseatwithyou

Samaras Restaurant staff walked in to find the restaurant deliberately flooded and four electronic tablets – used for bookings, orders and administration –submerged in the overflowing kitchen sink.

Thank you for your patience :) We are up and running, and looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces soon!
