Sited in a posh and central area surprisingly devoid of much good grub, Taboula is an oasis in the culinary desert of Garden City. The Lebanese fare is delicious and the service brisk (a relief in a city where good service is a rarity). The decor may be the best of any restaurant in Cairo, its reds and yellows reminiscent...

Excellent food near the British consulate. The prices are terrific and the food just delicious. Many expats and foreign nationals visit here due to its close proximity to some consulates, everything was tasty- well priced! Highly recommend!

Terrific dishes -- not a single one was a miss. The ambience is beautiful, and the prices are well below U.S./European prices for dinner. Don't let the nasty exterior fool you! Easy to see when many expats and Egyptians alike siad this was their favorite restaurant in Cairo, at least for non-Egyptian food.

I was most impressed by the décor and brilliant color combinations for the dining area--I must say, a bit more impressed by these than by the food, and much more than I was by the staff, which gave a solo diner the minimum attention (and that only after a fairly long wait). Although the food was certainly done well, and... More

I ate here a few days ago with some friends. It is a lovely spot, nicely decorated and the food was delicious. The only thing that was a bit annoying was that a cover charge, plus a tax plus a service charge were added to the bill - these charges didn't appear on the menu.

I recommend Taboula Restaurant for lighter dinner people . I went there with my wife and my kids . I recommend to you all to enjoy there Lebanese light appetizers such as Tabulla and Homos . Good value dinner for price and health . They offer an oriental live music too , was it so good too.

My wife and I stopped at this restaurant with a few friends because we heard so many good reviews. Our first impression was fine - except for the traffic from Maadi to Garden City however that is expected in Cairo. We decided to order mezes and share. No complaints from us....yummy! Service was fine.

Went there for dinner because of its good performance on this site and because of staying at a nearby hotel. Big mistake - we opt for chicken and lamb cubes and asked for some advice what would be served with it. We were told by a very grumpy waiter: "whatever you want" - quite helpful. Wines are ridiculous overpriced compared... More
