Quick takeaway

We stopped in at taboula for takeaway as my baby was too tired for a sit down meal. The food we got was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. A nice reprieve from most restaurants on Ramadan nights.

I was meeting Egyptian friends from the university I hadn't seen in 20 years. This was iftar and my friends were breaking a fast after not eating since 3am. Two days ago, one made a reservation and placed a deposit. This afternoon, another placed the order. Everything I tried was delicious. I had some fattoush salad, hummus, some spinach dumpling...

We loved the food at Taboula so much that we ate there 3 nights out of the 4 nights we spent in Cairo. We each ordered something different every time and we didn't find a single meal that wasn't tasty and well presented. The restaurant is located close to the British Embassy and government buildings, and the area is very... More

Good mezzeh and main dishes, in particular the lamb-chops. Guests from all walks of life, Egyptians, other Arabs, religious-conservative, secular-intellectual, Westerners, tourists, students, business people. Alcohol available. In case you can't find it, ask people in the streets, it is well known. RSVP.

The ambience is good . However the service is very average . Along with over priced menu . Sheesha was 45le . Which according to me was 5 times the price you can get anywhere outside and trust me way too good then the one I had in this restaurant .

Tucked away in a corner, this place was difficult to locate. Even locals standing in the adjacent street were unaware of the restaurant. We had been recommended to Taboula. Finally we managed to find it. The restaurant is on different levels. It was crowded and noisy. The food was good. Portion sizes were however served on an industrial scale and... More

This place makes the best mago juice. The menu is large and the garlic sauce is good. They make their bread fresh and the spicy potatoes are amazing. The service is very very good and the people seemed very friendly so far everything we have eaten was good we ate here 3 times on our vacation. They also have shisha... More

Taboula has been the leader of Lebanese cuisine for such a long time, but with young entrepreneurs entering the culinary market in Cairo with new and creative concepts, taboula fell far behind.. Some dishes are superb and others are nothing but average , stuffed vine leaves, hummus awerma, and stuffed cheese pastries and many other mezzas that is considered the... More
