“Really Very Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner here after a long day in KL, had. A mix of starters and mains and they had no problem bringing everything out together which is something we have had trouble with at other restaurants.

The mixed grill was excellent and the flat breads were fantastic, the hummus was very smooth and came with lovely little cubes of lamb on top.

The service was good compared to some of the other places we visited in KL.

All in all I would happily recommend if this was the type of thing you fancied, for the price (100 ringgit) it's well worth it.

“Kuala Lumpur”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Stayed at the Ritz-Carlton, has to be one of the best hotels in SE Asia. Staff are tremendous, the rooms and service are excellent, the in-house restaurants and those in the Starhill Mall are all well worth a visit and good value for money.

“Meal was too dry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The meal was served was rather dry and the meat was hard. I couldnt chew it. The service was alright, nothing glamorous or excellent for the whopping price that you're paying.

“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!
