This is my third visit to Tarboush and took some friends. They absolutely adored their visit to this restaurant. It was all they could talk about the rest of the evening. They made us feel so welcome and, as always, the food was sublime. This...has to be the best restaurant in Watford. If your hungry then Tarboush is the only choice. See you there!More

Our friends are vegetarian so I always check menus to ensure there is a good choice for them. We fancied something different so checked out Trip advisor and came across Taboush in Market St. We know there are a variety of restaurants but hadn’t been...to Market St in a long while. Taboush is just lovely. Friendly staff, and just lovely decor. A complete surprise. Obviously, we knew it was Lebanese so knew what to expect and it didn’t let us down. We chose the lunch menu, which is effectively a meze. 3 meze’s for £15. Thought we might need to order more, but wow, we came away completely stuffed. Freshly made, incredibly tasty, and a great range. Even better it’s a BYOB, so remarkable value. Cannot recommend highly enough. We will be back.More

Incredible, tasty food and great service! We took our friends out for dinner for their anniversary. They love Lebanese food and they said it was one of the best Lebanese restaurants they have eaten in. It was our first visit here and we will be...returning for sure. Side point, they do not serve alcohol, but you can bring your own and they charge a small fee, i think it was £3 per person drinking alcohol. They were also great with our children and very accommodating with fussy eaters. Thank you Tarboush!More

We wanted to try something authentic and avoid a chain and we weren't disappointed. The food was amazing, we had a vegetarian mezze platter for two plus a couple of extra dishes for the meat eater with us and that was more than enough for...3 of us. The flavours were amazing and would definitely visit again.More

Not a great experience I’m afraid. There were people smoking Shisha pipes inside the restaurant and the smell was over powering the taste of the food. We all felt the food was bland and uninteresting, so we left most of it and when the plates...were cleared, we were never asked if everything was ok (surely it was obvious by the fact that the food was barely touched!). We didn’t want to start complaining as my friend had a banging headache from the pipe smoke, so we quickly paid and left. To be fair to you, we didn’t give you the chance to rectify the problem as we just wanted to leave, and I don’t know what you could have done if we had complained as we didn’t enjoy any of it! The service was friendly and polite, so we paid the included tip. It wasn’t cheap and the food just didn’t live up to our expectations so we won’t be returningMore
