What a discovery. Long time admired from outside but this was our first time with the kids. Elena looked after us. A selection of mouth watering, lightly spiced sausage, lamb, chicken with cheese, salad and plenty of dips. Great milkshakes for the kids. Highly recommend....More

Arrived around 4:45 after going to the Watford Palace theatre (5 minutes walk). Warm welcome, went for the meat mezze and were told (suggested) that we let them choose as there was duplication with our main courses. Great choice of starters, really delicious. Main courses...More

Really friendly and accommodating stuff, good BYOB option - food was unfortunately really bland and poorly cooked. Would go again for a boozy night with friends, but avoid the roasted lamb.

Great food, great price, great staff, great obedience (apart from the two huge heaters.) Such a variety of flavours in the meet mezze and a very generous assortment of pastries. X

Once again excellent food & service at Tarboush. We thoroughly enjoyed our vegetarian mezze and starter section expertly suggested by the gentleman that took our order. Everything was delicious especially the calamari, highly recommended. It’s the first time I’ve eaten out the back in the...More

Just loved the ambience, not too crowded but enough diners in to make a nice atmosphere. Menu was easy to navigate with the old favourites as starters and mains. Very reasonably priced with added value from really good young waitresses I guess working their way...More

I’ve been here several times and Tarboush never disappoints. The food is fresh, well cooked and high quality. The portions are generous, so make sure you’re hungry. It’s a BYOB place and offers a range of Shisha, if that’s your thing. The restaurant is nicely...More

We went to Tarboush on Saturday to celebrate a Birthday. This was our first visit. The food was excellent and the portions generous, so much so that we took some of it home with us. The staff worked very hard and despite being very busy...More

If you book way in advance I am sure there is some way they could accommodate you. The room in the back should have more than enough space! Note that if you order a table of more than six, you will be given a set taster... More

We are a small friendly restaurant close to the centre of Watford. We serve authentic freshly made lebanese cuisine and have an all weather garden area where people can eat, relax, maybe smoke a shisha pipe and forget they are in the Britain for a little while. We are open 11am till midnight, seven days a week.We can cater to large and small parties so if you are planning an evening out give us a call or pop in and see us.Hopefully we will see you soon.
