“A banker in Garden City”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Sited in a posh and central area surprisingly devoid of much good grub, Taboula is an oasis in the culinary desert of Garden City. The Lebanese fare is delicious and the service brisk (a relief in a city where good service is a rarity). The decor may be the best of any restaurant in Cairo, its reds and yellows reminiscent of a sultan's palace. Or something like that. Only downside: no windows to this basement. But that's a small gripe given Taboula's otherwise all-round excellence. (The same can't quite be said of Taboula's new franchise in Zamalek, where the service is a bit more lethargic.)

“Authentic!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Excellent food near the British consulate. The prices are terrific and the food just delicious. Many expats and foreign nationals visit here due to its close proximity to some consulates, everything was tasty- well priced! Highly recommend!

“Great food, great prices”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Terrific dishes -- not a single one was a miss. The ambience is beautiful, and the prices are well below U.S./European prices for dinner. Don't let the nasty exterior fool you! Easy to see when many expats and Egyptians alike siad this was their favorite restaurant in Cairo, at least for non-Egyptian food.

“Décor is what to come for”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

I was most impressed by the décor and brilliant color combinations for the dining area--I must say, a bit more impressed by these than by the food, and much more than I was by the staff, which gave a solo diner the minimum attention (and that only after a fairly long wait).

Although the food was certainly done well, and what I ate of it seemed tasty enough, I ended up losing (or filling?) my appetite early on and left most of the dinner on my plate. I was a bit surprised that the wait staff did not inquire into whether there had been a problem.

“Cute restaurant, yummy food”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

I ate here a few days ago with some friends. It is a lovely spot, nicely decorated and the food was delicious. The only thing that was a bit annoying was that a cover charge, plus a tax plus a service charge were added to the bill - these charges didn't appear on the menu.
