For quick middle eastern dips and wraps Tarbush is acceptable. We tried their outlet at the Pavilion at lunch and return again for dinner. No doubt the food were pre-cooked but was kept clean and we haven't the terrible experiences of diarrhea from the popular Din Tai Fung. Fills us up nice and warm. Their outlet at Batu Ferringhi, Penang... More

This restaurant is one of our all time favourites. Lebanese food cooked to perfection. No alcohol is served but the Iced lemon Tea is amazing.

We were invited by friends to lunch here. The place is pretty swanky. The decor is very middle eastern & the ambience is very nice. A word of warning to those wearing stiletto shoes. The walkway to the restaurants is all wooden planking with gaps between each plank & my heel got stuck in one of the gaps & it... More

We have been visiting their Starhill Gallery restaurant for the past 10-years every time we are in KL. The quality of the food and the consistency of service has not diminished at all. This is rare, especially in KL. Their mixed platter (RM50) gives you a generous selection of kebabs and grilled seafood. Their mezze platter is equally worthwhile. Tarbush... More

There are 6 middle eastern restaurants in a row in this location but we were so glad we chose Tarbush - we were the only Caucasians there so we thought that was a good sign and the food was delicious - hummus, tabbouleh, baked fish, yum yum yum. Service was average but they were rushed off of their feet so... More

Amazing shawarma, both chicken and beef. The kind of shawarma that caters to the taste of arabs. Seating is on bar stools or at the foodcourt.
