I have visited tabun many times, I love the food specially the bread which is freshly made in an artisanal oven. I would recommend this place to any one who likes Middle East food. This place is in my must list every time I visit Medellin.

I had chicken shauverma and my husband had beef dish and salads. Everything didn't taste right. The only thing that was awesome there is decoration on 2nd floor and the guy who was making the bread in front of us. That was kind of a show!

Manage your expectations. This is not a fancy restaurant or a place where they'll serve authentic cuisine. You will get a fusion of sorts they is delicious and fun. Be prepared as the food portions are huge.

I have to admit that I am a bit of a snob when it comes to Middle Eastern/Arabic food as I frequently ate with Lebanese people in Nigeria for two years. Tabun makes the grade. We ordered a platter for two and it was enough for the three of us. The pita was hot and puffy as it should be.... More

Used to be one of my favorite Medellin restaurants. First came here in 2012, and it was a place I'd take anyone visiting the city for the first time. Not sure what had happened to the place since. Went a few months ago and the food and service was bad. Had to go back with friends, and again disappointing. Was... More

Great place for big groups, plus you get to try more things. Everything is delicious and the belly dancers and tandoor oven are neat to see. My favorite place after 3 months in Medellin

Enjoyed the Lebonese Shawarma which came with eight different dips for the naan bread. The bread was huge and I was unable to enjoy it all before it got cold and crusty. The dips were marvelous. I was full after the naan bread and dips.
