A great restaurant with a meal that we still remember, since the food was amazing. The combination of Indian and Middle Eastern flavours was really interesting and there was tons of flavour in the food. The location of the restaurant is also pretty nice given...it's close to the main area where you can roam around in the evening.More

Local friends recommended this restaurant during our visit. I must say, it is a place worth visiting. The food is great and seems quite authentic as far I know about this type of cuisine. I will say that the service is acceptable but nothing over...the top.More

Nice restaurant seating. Service was efficient if not overly friendly. But food was sadly very average. Hummus was ok. The bread was outstanding being more a tandoori ma’am than pita. But the tabouleh was dreadful. Big chunks of tomatoes and topped by olives. Very little...parsley. Plus the lemonade didn’t taste fresh. What a let down. Glad I didn’t try Indian here.More

This place brings me back to Israel. If you order a main course, they bring you a huge selection of salads with bread... delicious! Everything is very reasonably priced and tastes amazing. Our server Melanie was extremely attentive and had our order perfect (I’m surprise...she managed to memorize everything by heart! It was a big order)... I highly recommend this place, the hummus, the falafel, my husband said the meat dishes were great but this place is perfect for vegetarians I think! I will definitely be back. 5 stars!!!More

This restaurant is in the upmarket area of el poblado. This is an expensive arab/indian restaurant and hence you expect excellent customer service Our main course was served by the waitress. We had four dishes which required a spoon each for us to be able...to serve the food onto our plates. The waitress did not return with spoons so i asked another waitress for four serving spoons. She came back with one. I explained i need four and pointed to the four dishes and then she gave me a dirty look and nodded her head several times as if I just committed a sin. She came back with four tiny tea spoons. I said i need a table spoon and she replied, ‘this is all they have’ and was very moody. I clearly was very confused and shocked by this random behaviour over a spoon! I said it is normal to need a proper spoon and she kept saying no. I asked to speak to the manager and then she went back and brought back four big spoons! I was like seriously!!! No apology. My husband told me not to complain and to be fair there was no manager around..it was just four waitresses, a bar man and a naan maker. To the owner - if you are charging high prices then you need to also train your staff accordingly. I’d advise you to have a manager in the restaurant as all four waitresses were not pleasant at all...i said thank you to another one on the way out and she just ignored me and gave me a look...as if all four already had a little gossip about the spoon incident.pathetic, childish and unnecessary. Food was so so...the staff ruined the whole ambiance and experience.AVOIDMore

Who would have known that Arab food in Colombia could be so delicious and authentic? I felt like I was in Jordan again! We ordered the vegetarian platter which was scrumptious with a medley of flavors. It was so much food it could easily satisfy...3 or even 4 people. The ambience was lovely as well. Highly recommended!More

Loved the food at this restaurant! All the hot plates come with a huge portion of pita bread and salad dips — the waitress told us when we ordered the hummus as an appetizer, but we went ahead and ordered anyway— we definitely didn’t need...the appetizer! I had the Israeli pollo agridulce — delicious! My wife had the chicken curry dish, she loved it! The place is somewhat tucked away in El poblado, so it was a little difficult to get a cab (and this was around 4pm). We called an Uber instead and even that took a little while. Other than that, we loved this restaurant!More

We were a bit skeptical on initially hearing that one of the best restaurants in all of Medellin was a Lebanese restaurant, but given the large diaspora in Colombia this turned out to be not so surprising What turned out to be surprising was a...wider variety of items on the menu - some authentic some fusion. We ordered the Kibbe and Samosas as appetizers and then ordered the Mixed Dubai Vegetarian for two. Ordering the appetizers turned out to be a mistake not because they were bad (they were delicious) but we were absolutely unprepared for the Dubai platter. Over the next hour or so, we were treated to an endless procession of plates so much so that we literally could not take a bite of the last 2 or 3 items and had to pack them back to the hotel for a late night dinner the next day. TIP - if you are ordering Mixed platters, forego appetizers unless you are ravenously hungry TIP- The Arabian Lemonde and the Persian False are also worth trying as drinks Worth a trip to Tabun. Highly recommended.More
