With its close proximity to Tarhir Square and many foreign embassies, Taboula is a go to place for expats entertaining colleagues or visitors or just out for a slightly special occasion dining experience. The restaurant is small, cozy and highly atmospheric - lovely traditional furnishings and pretty traditional touches like iron lanterns. The staff is friendly and more professional than most restaurants in Cairo. The food is decent, not outstanding, and Lebanese, not Egyptian. The menu does offer a good variety of hot and cold mezza and entrees. As I vegetarian, I was pleased with the many meat free options. Standouts were the grilled halloumi, spicy potatoes and Lebanese falafel - a happy change from the bland Egyptian version of falafel typically served around Egypt. Locals seem to love the place, too, frequenting for the food and the shisha. The plentiful shisha contributes to Taboula's authentic vibe, but it also fills the tiny space with plenty of smoke.

We ate twice at the Garden City branch of Taboula. The food is good although Lebanese and not exactly Egyptian. The room is quaint but somewhat dark. The lower level seems noisier. Our group liked it enough so we went back a second time.
