My friend and I visited for the first time and were really impressed with the choices on the menu. The food was delicious, the staff very accommodating and friendly and the prices really good. My only criticism is that we couldn't pay by card and they only told us this after we had eaten and were ready to pay. This... More

We arrived around 8pm with friends and the resturant was busy however we were met with a warm and friendly welcome by staff.

After a revamp this place it's still the best place to be near home if you are a local, with great fresh food, great atmosphere and the most important, everyone is treated the same! Absolutely love it! It's a must@

I'm not sure how this restaurant is rated 2nd best in Watford. The staff were friendly enough and one was happy to offer advice on the food. They didn't have a couple of things we ordered, and we ordered bread which never arrived. The lamb chops were very overcooked and dry even though we asked before ordering if they would... More

Tarboush offers amazing food at amazing prices. Three of us had a wonderful mezze meal on Sunday evening and it cost just over 30 pounds including soft drinks. Warm hot griddled pitta dunked into unctuous dips and drizzles of absolute deliciousness whilst retaining a feeling of absolute freshness only serves to highlight how talented the chefs are. Cubed chicken taouk... More

We are a small friendly restaurant close to the centre of Watford. We serve authentic freshly made lebanese cuisine and have an all weather garden area where people can eat, relax, maybe smoke a shisha pipe and forget they are in the Britain for a little while. We are open 11am till midnight, seven days a week.We can cater to large and small parties so if you are planning an evening out give us a call or pop in and see us.Hopefully we will see you soon.
