“One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I ate at Tarbush Bukit Bintang Location together with 7 of my friends plus the Tarbush owner's son himself Rashid. It was a really nice place to start with. Interiors and music are really setting the mood plus the sound proof glass wall on the second floor makes it really nice for people-watching the busy street while waiting for our food. The food tastes amazing, I loved the beef and prawn so much also the rice and salad. This place is a must-try whenever you visit Kuala Lumpur!

“An authentic taste of the Middle East in central KL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

In summary, when in KL, eat here!

I eat at their origional resturant on Bukit Bintang ervery time I visit KL. The food is fantastic and the way it should be. Serving sizes are generous, meat is tender and seasoned to perfection and side dishes are equally excellent. They have since expanded to other locations in KL and I think they now have a total of 5 resturants.

You can't go past their Tarbush mixed grill for one. A feast for a king!

“Tasty Dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

If you are looking for a good place serving lebanese menu in Kuala Lumpur or pinang, i can say that Tarbush is the best destination with high profile of cleanliness, delicious recipes and good service. May be the prices much above other rests., but it's warthy trying it, and u will come back again for sure. One thing bothers you in Tarbush is always crawded and you have to wait for a while to get a vacant table.

“excellent tasty and clean food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

I eat there frequently as it location is very convenient. The restaurant is always clean and the kitchen is surrounded with glass walls that gives you the confidence to eat there. Price might be slightly higher than what is arround butthe food and cleanliness is definetly worth it.
