Very friendly service and the one of the best meals we have ever eaten. We shared the Arabic chicken and this was more than enough for two persons. If you're ever in Nazareth definitely go to El-Taboon for the Arabic chicken.

I visited Nazareth in April 2016 and stopped over at this restaurant for a lunch. I was surprised by the amount of food I received for a very modest price. In addition the food was really tasty and the service WONDERFUL. The waiter was extremely friendly. Def recommended.

The food at this restaurant was incredible. The service was absolutely wonderful. The staff, especially Ahmed and Quasi, were amazingly friendly and knowledgeable about the beautiful city. This place is a MUST if you visit Nazareth. Our favorite items were hummus with hot mushrooms and the tahini with eggplant. Can't wait to visit again soon. Shukraan!!

Great and friendly service. The Arab style chicken was so delicious that I asked the waiter if he could tell me what spices were used. He said it was a secret mix but after ten minutes he came back with a tub full of red powder. Hummus fantastic. Lots of food for a very reasonable price. Many local people, which... More

I was with a group of four people who were doing the 4-day northern Israel tour through Abraham Tours. We were using Nazareth as our base, staying at the beautiful Fauzi Azar Inn and we all decided to try this little restaurant while passing by it on the street. We all ordered the Chicken Arabic-style and we were all flabbergasted... More

I was here with my friend a week ago. The food is fresh, tasty, home made, beautifully served. The portion are big enough to sit and chat for a long time ;) The workers, especially the waiter, are very kind and I felt welcomed. A wide range of traditional meals in a very good price. Toilet clean. The interior design... More
