“Great service and fantastic Lebanese food in the lower north shore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

I read some reviews before booking Tarboosh for my birthday dinner. I wasn't 100% sure about the selection based on some of the reviews but the place was great and we had great evening.

The food was fantastic. Very tasty and a little bit too much. The service was great. The price was very reasonable and no charge for BYO. The entertainment was very nice.. Maybe a little bit more entertainment would be even better.... Great place .. Very highly recommended.

“Satisfied”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Influenced by the North side of Lebanon, the food is nice and Authentic. Service was good and quick, prices are a bit high but considerable for what you get if you go for a banquet.

“check your credit card payment carefully!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

The credit card payment when I checked the statement was more than twice the cost. It was take away. The atmosphere looked good with belly dancing but I'll be much more careful with the payment if I go again.

“Fun and Fit for a Sultan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Let's get the belly dancers out of the way but boy do they know how to get a saturday night going?!

The mixed spread with those fluffy breads is my favourite. I would have to say their Babaganoush tops any I have tasted any where else.

Fully spiced and meats are marinated well to retain their juiciness and flavour, I say a must visit at least once!

“Excellent Traditional Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

I have been to this place several times since it opened. Each time the food has been excellent and traditional. It is a little more expensive that other Middle Eastern restaurants around but I have never had a bad meal. However I would say that its seating is crowded and the place is noisy and this makes it difficult for the wait staff. Try not to go at peak times.
