From the Makool family with pride, experience the tradition and the passion of Oasis.
Since 1998, this Australian owned and operated family business has been sharing authentic food from around the world with fellow food lovers. At the heart of the Oasis story is the Makool family which emigrated from Lebanon in the 1970s, along with a strong tradition of bringing people together through the sharing of food.
Over 20 years of hard work and a commitment to quality has seen three generations of the family transform a humble food store in Melbourne’s southeast into an iconic part of the city’s culinary scene. Today Oasis Murrumbeena is home to a bustling café, a gourmet grocery store, a deli of epicurean proportions, a fresh food market and popular cooking school.
If you find yourself on the northside, pop in to Oasis Fairfield, right in the midst of it on Station Street, Fairfield. We’ve created a new store where you’ll find all your favourite groceries, a cafe where you can get the same delicious meals you’ve grown to love, a cooking school where Oasis founder Marwa Makool, takes the time to share her passion for food with you and a beautiful light filled function and events space where you’ll feel at home sharing wonderful food and experiences with your friends and family.
The Oasis name is also found in independent supermarkets everywhere on a wide range of freshly baked breads and Lebanese pizzas, exotic spices, delicious dips, pantry provisions. and many other products inspired by the flavours of the Middle East.
While the business continues to grow, it has maintained its dedication to sharing great food, offering friendly service and providing an atmosphere unlike anywhere else. Oasis is a food lover’s paradise, with pride and passion in every dish.
