I ate here 3 times during my stay in Medellin because it was that good. The service is a bit slow at times, but that's Medellin for you. The hummus plate is excellent, as is the biryani. Also, the dolmehs were very good. Each time I went, I was not disappointed. They even had belly dancers and hookah. Great place.... More

Myself and two friends visited this restaurant on my last night in Medellin before flying home to the UK. The food was 'mouth-wateringly' good (we had the vegetarian sharing plate for 2 and also tried the Samosa and Vine Leaves) and I would definitely recommend it it anyone and everyone.

I grew up in the Bay Area, Hawaii and Seattle, all of which excel in authentic ethnic food. I am a self-acclaimed foodie and this was by far, the best Arabic food I have ever experienced in my entire life! We visited on a Thursday night in May, so it wasn't very busy at all; only a few other tables... More

The restaurant has two levels and different environment when you either sit on a table or on the floor. Food quality is very good including beverages. It is expensive for the city standards.

My son found this restaurant and it was open on Christmas Eve. It's a blend of Indian, Israeli, Lebanese, Turkish and a few other cuisines. After you order, you are presented with an enormous naan which is made in house. It comes with 8 spreads and salads. We all had lamb or chicken shwarma. which was accompanied by cut up... More

For me, it is by far the best restaurant in terms of value for money. whenever we have a family get together or a office gathering, we go here. Naan is a freshly baked fluffy and soft bread that you'd never miss.

Tabun is an Arabian restaurant in Poblado, the exciting part of Medellín. I went there on a Friday evening with my teacher and friends from Colombia, the US, the UK, Myanmar and Thailand to celebrate the month of love and friendship.
