Bringing the best of Nineveh to you.

Our Story

Originally from Iraq, Mazin brought with him the love for pastry making and 25 years of experience when he moved with his family to Australia in 2016. Grew up in Nineveh – a city that is famous for its sweet delicacy, Mazin was very creative since childhood. Having recognised his talent, a family friend who was a well-known pastry owner in the region asked to mentor Mazin. He started working there at 17 years of age where he was constantly testing and creating new recipes. Mazin opened his own shop not long after, as everyone grew to love his creations.

He opened Al Faqma Sydney in 2017 with the dream to bring the true flavours of Nineveh to the Australian eateries.
