    Our first time trying this spot and WOW were we pleased. The hummus was amazing and creamy, not bitter and grainy like every other spot I have had it in Houston. The lamb chops were superb, well cooked seasoned and tender. The lamb shank was so tender it fell off the bone. This place is a hidden gem and we will definitely be back!

    A good friend of mine met me here, she told me about it and I thought it sounded awesome. I was very excited to try it and it was amazing. I loved the bread, it was warm and tasty and perfect with the hummus. The pot of tea was awesome too! I got the kabob plate that was lamb and it was AMAZING, it was done perfect and the rice was so flavorful. The spicy potatoes were good if you like pretty spicy stuff. My friend got the hookah and the service was so nice for that too, it's apparantly a lot cheaper than hookah places, from what she told me, but I am not familiar. The atmosphere was so nice and relaxing, not too bright inside and not too dark and I liked the music. The waiter was really nice too! Overall an awesome experience, I can't wait to go back.

    I have been pretty impressed every time I have visited Tarboosh, with their quality of food. While the service may not be the best of 5star, the food quality definitely compensates for any loose ends.

    This last visit, I went with a large order of hummus. I am a sucka for hummus. The more, the merrier. I don't feel that a small size satisfies my craving for hummus, so I opt for a large every time.

    For the main entre, I went with a chicken shawarma platter, that came with rice and two sides, and I opted for spicy potatoes and grilled veggies. The chicken was seasoned very good and the potatoes were very tasty too. Rice was done, just right without any clumping and hummus was delicious and an ideal compliment to the hot bread that was served.

    I will be visiting Tarboosh again pretty soon. I also noticed that Tarboosh has a groupon deal available, so take advantage of that. It requires 2 people though, so get yourself a date and buy the groupon.

    The food was fantastic and so was the service. The owner and the staff were very friendly. Everything was delicious from the Mansaf , hummus with beef shawarma. Labani , kobbeh and shawarma sandwiches too. The Kenafe was so good too. Great dinning experience.

    This restaurant is so beautiful and the food is amazing, they hosted my entire wedding party for my rehearsal dinner and made us feel like family with the nicest one on one service they provided to show my family a wonderful time. 100% recommend them.

  • *****

    I really enjoy the food in tarboosh,I recommend 100% the food.

  • *****

    Great Find! Went in for a snack and had the hummus and a puff pastry. Both were very good! Hummus was very creamy and did not lack flavor. I also had a sweet tooth and ordered a Nutella stuffed puff pastry which was nicely presented and very yummy! I plan on returning for a full meal as I was short on time the day I swung by.

  • *****

    it was my first time here and I will most definitely be returning and bringing my friends! Food was delicious and the portions are huge! BETH was our waitress and she was amazing! definitely recommend

  • *****

    They have great food and prices! GREAT customer service our waitress Iman was very helpful, kept checking on us, and smiled the entire time! Definitely ask for her she is on top of it.

  • *****

    I was impressed with the food and the service. A place everyone should try.

  • *****

    This place was AMAZING. Shorook took excellent care of us. I had the chicken shawarma plate and OH MY. And the Greek salad was to die for.

    My business guest and I stumbled across this place and I can't wait to go back!

    My Best friend and I are always on the hunt for the best Mediterranean food. We tried Tarboosh for the first time today and were SO happy we did! We ordered the baba ghanoush and caramelized hummus for appetizers, and both ordered a fresh smoothie- her mango and I the mint-lemonade. She ordered the Lamb chops with spicy potatoes, and hummus. I ordered the chicken shawarma plate with grilled vegetables and special basmati rice. The shawarma had the perfect balance of acidity and flavor, and gently sauteed onions added a nice unexpected crunch. The rice had a wonderfully unique flavor that I am still trying to figure out. (carrot juice?) The caramelized hummus was absolutely fantastic as was the baba ganoush. The lamb chops were slightly overcooked but still very flavorful. The drinks were very refreshing but did come a little late in our meal. We then finished with dessert. She ordered the baklava and I the knafe. I highly recommend the knafe to finish your evening off right. We will both definitely be back to try other menu items (and more of the same!). Well done Tarboosh!

  • *****

    I pass the place all the time finally tried them out.

    Cute little family owned type of place.

    Me and my mom shared the Tarboosh kabob place- 4 meats, 2 sides and rice. We got fried cauliflower and hummus for our 2 sides. They gave us shrimp, chicken, kofta and beef kabobs. Everything was good. We didn't really care for the kofta or beef, got dry really fast.

    The server and GM were very friendly and nice and always checking on us.

    I will definitely be back!!

    They also have a hookah area, really cute!! And about 20 different flavors, I will be back for that and a pot of tea!!

  • *****

    First time there and definitely won’t be the last. Their hummus and bread was delicious to start us off with. I ordered the chicken shawarma with rice, spicy potatoes and grilled vegetables, big portions and everything was delicious! I’ll definitely be back
    Soon

  • *****

    The food is delicious, my family and I enjoyed the spicy potatoes and akkawi cheese ?. We ordered the family plate which feeds four.

  • *****

    Shorook is an amazing person! Her service, attitude, and smile just makes me want to come back everyday. The food was AMAZING. Great fresh tasting lamb and the fermented yogurt was a perfect compliment.

  • *****

    Quality food and friendly staff reasonable pricing fresh variety.

  • *****

    Amazing food and great service
    I can here twice and their food is more than good, all servers and the owner are very nice and welcoming

  • *****

    Fantastic food for a great price. Me my fiance and my best friend went here and it was beyond spectacular. Food was beyond amazing and our waitress was awesome! Thanks guys!

  • *****

    OMG this place has amazing food!!! My hubby took me here last night for dinner and it is now my NEW favorite place to eat!!! Wait staff are incredibly friendly and the food is absolutely amazing. If I could give it 10 stars I would.

  • *****

    Food and service is always great; They never fail to deliver to a high standard. Great spot for family, meetings or a gathering. Food menu is outstanding, so many to choose from.

  • *****

    We've passed by this place so many times, but finally to try it today. We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids ages 10, 8, and 6). The kids rarely eat Mediterranean food so we were hesitant at first to go, but decided to give it a try.

    The place wasn't crowded when we went (late Sunday lunch) - only 1 other table of 5. First, the service was fantastic! The lady helping us was very friendly. I told her my kids' experience with Mediterranean cuisine and she made great suggestions. She served us plenty of pita bread and even offered extra fries for my little guy (younger 2 were splitting a kid dish). Checked on us periodically, refilled drinks, etc.

    The food was good. I had the lamb briyani and the meat was delicious (a little too much rice for me though). My oldest and husband both had the lamb kabob sandwich - husband liked it, son not so much (but he did enjoy some of my briyani). My younger two split a kids' chicken kabob sandwich - and my 8yo who wasn't sure she'd like anything, really enjoyed the chicken. All the sandwich orders came with a side a fries which were well seasoned and enjoyed by all.

    We also ordered a side of hummus, which was ok IMO.

    Will definitely come back!

  • *****

    Food was delicious and service was fantastic. I've had Mediterranean food at other places but this was definitely top choice! They even went out of their way to make just the right amount of food for my group. Definitely will be back.

    Try the hummus with chicken! It was delicious.

  • *****

    Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, and amazing staff! I’m so glad I found this gem when I was visiting Houston recently. I can’t wait to go back! Absolutely delicious ?

  • *****

    Awesome restaurant delicious food ??

  • *****

    I first encountered this restaurant through groupon and then I ordered to-go and the food was good so I had to come in person. It was pretty empty when I got here, but service was friendly.

    LAMB CHOPS- lamb chops with rice, spicy potatoes, and basmati veggie rice
    I really like this dish. The lamb is cooked so tender and juicy and the flavors are light, but so aromatic. The rice was also cooked perfectly and complemented the meaty lamb. The side of potatoes were not spicy, but it carried a bit of spice that held the dish together. Overall, it was very good.

    It's a definite must try if you like lamb or mediterranean food. I still have not used my groupon. I'll use that as an excuse to stop by.

  • *****

    Food was a good although not the best Mediterranean I’ve had (Mary’z takes that spot) service was excellent though

  • *****

    I always loved the taste of their food. I always get the same thing but its super delicious everytime. Their jasmine rice is so flavorful. The only thing is the wait for pickup is super long.

  • *****

    Excellent food. Service was a little slow. At this price point they should have some free bread or chips or something....we were sitting hungry for 20 mins waiting for our food. When it came out it was delicious with good portions. Will recommend and revisit for sure

  • *****

    I always loved the taste of thwir food. I always get the same thing but its super delicious everytime. Their jasmine rice is so flavorful. The only thing is the wait for pickup is super long.

  • *****

    Super friendly, nice atmosphere. We were made to feel very welcome. The food? It was really good. The Muhammara was excellent, and the family plate was huge and delicious.

  • *****

    Great atmosphere especially for families and excellent service. The food is always delicious when I come here. I love their falafel!!!

  • *****

    Outstanding food and very nice service.
    The spices on the chicken kabob were delicious and so is the rice. Excellent.

  • *****

    Fresh food. Nice service, and pleasant vibe
    The owner is very engaged, makes sure everyone is having a good time.

  • *****

    Amazing service and ambience. They have a variety of fresh juice to pick from! The food itself is great! They're very flavored and comes in generous amount. Will be back for sure!

  • *****

    They have halloumi so that makes me happy. Much better as a takeout restaurant than a sit down. Friendly people and a good option to break up the takeout routine. A tad pricey for frequent visits.

  • *****

    I love it!! ??all the dishes were outstanding ????service was good ? they need to pay more attention to the restrooms higiene.

  • *****

    Although the buffet was a little expensive, the variety of food and the taste was worth it in the end. A personal favorite of mine were the beef patties and the three types of rice they were serving. The 'chips' and hummus were amazing as well.

  • *****

    I don’t usually write reviews but our dinner here was excellent. I can’t believe we have a hidden gem like this on this side of town. We will definitely be regulars!

  • *****

    Food was outstanding! Generous portions. Shrimp kabobs and the Chicken Shawarna were delicious!

  • *****

    The food was really good - fresh and very flavorful! The service was great too. Very happy with the overall experience!

  • *****

    I think I've been to this place at least once a week when I found them. The chicken kabob is fabulous. A must try!

  • *****

    Ordered a couple plates of the thanksgiving meal and it was awesome. My employees enjoyed this meal so much. I will definitely visit again.

  • *****

    Highly recommended. Everything was fresh and delicious. My waitress was very accommodating and knew all about their Vegan friendly options as well. I will be back!

  • *****

    Simply excellent! The food is great. The atmosphere is great. I loved that the manager took time to go to each table to see how each guest's experience was going. Our sever was a trainee and she did an outstanding job. Definitely going back and taking friends with me.

  • *****

    Everything was incredible! The Server in training was so awesome (as was the lady training her) and I loved that when I asked to be educated about certain items, I received such a warm welcome and didn’t feel “talked down to” like other establishments. The Manager (maybe owner?) was so informative and seemed to genuinely care about educating us on all dishes. I will definitely be going back. Such a gem in a literal long stretch of road that usually doesn’t have much variety.

  • *****

    The food was amazing, and the waitress Lauren, really went above and beyond. I had a lot of silly tourist questions and her suggestions were all great.

  • *****

    The food and service was AMAZING!!!! Our server was the sweetest girl ever it was my husband & I's first time ever having mediterranean food and it was a great experience

  • *****

    The meal, service & atmosphere is always pleasant!

  • *****

    Absolutely love this place. Growing up in germany and used to this type of food was awesome. And I'm so glad I found Tarboosh, every time we go it always brings good memories. Food is always excellent and friendly service. Good food portions as well.

  • *****

    The food was nice and there were good vegetarian options available. It feels a bit suffocated because of hookah in closed room. The only suggestion I have is that the hookah should be served in open area rather than in a closed room.

  • *****

    Why on EARTH this place is not packed!!
    Awesome food, best ever grilled veggies. Wide variety of vegetarian food. Our server Jessica was very patient? as we can be a crazy bunch.
    We were a group of 7 and the owner got us a nice spot of our liking and great suggestions for SHEESHA.

    One thing they can improve upon is the speed on service. Rest all was awesome. Definately coming back.

    Per our non vegetarian friends the lamb kabob was good. If you like something spicy please try the spicy POTATOES (SIDE) and you would not be disappointed.

  • *****

    This place is pretty good! The service was a bit slow on a Friday night but otherwise the waitress was very sweet (Jessica)! We had Appetizers along with Main course and some delicious Mint tea. I highly recommend this place!

  • *****

    Their service was one of the fastest and it was also very efficient. 100% of the people that work here were very nice, and welcoming. I'm glad I tried that place out, great experience.

  • *****

    The food was really good, reasonable price. Tried Shawarma and lamb Kebob, and all were very good. The service was also very good.

  • *****

    The tabouleh, tarboosh hummus, and the spicy potatoes are amazing!!! This is a must try place!

  • *****

    First time here and the service was excellent. The staff and owners are super helpful and friendly. The food and hookah is amazing! Thank god this place is close to my house.. this is my new spot!

  • *****

    Had a great experience here, the staff was very courteous and the kebabs were tasty. I enjoyed the hookah service as well.

  • *****

    This is my second time to dine here. Both times the service has been exceptional and the food has been extremely flavorful. My husband had the FridayLamb special. He was very impressed. I had the Chicken Schwarma and it was wonderful with the garlic mayonnaise. Do yourself a favor and give this place a try.

  • *****

    The best. Excellent authentic food. Friendly staff and owners. Pleasant atmosphere. Enjoyable evening. Definitely will return! The wife of the owner is great!

  • *****

    this place was amazing! I got the shawarma sandwich and my sister had the tarboosh sandwich. both were absolutely delicious and at a great price. I highly recommend this place to anyone that enjoys mediterranean food with good spices.

  • *****

    This is one of my favorite family restaurant to hang out in. Good food good mood. Would recommend to anyone that wants to relax and enjoy their time and food.

  • *****

    Great Mediterranean food with wonderful service and nice hookah selection. Highly enjoyable!!!

  • *****

    I have been looking forward to this restaurant opening for a long time. It was worth the wait. Oh. My. Goodness. The lamb chops were delicious, and tender. The humus is some of the best I have tasted. They even made my husband LIKE cauliflower...seriousy...fried cauliflower. I got to taste the labneh, thick and rich. They serve good bread, fresh and pliable, perfect for eating . We will be coming back.

  • *****

    Looooooooooooooooved the food there tonight! We ordered the mix platter and it was amazing!!!! Loved everything from the kabob the lamb the chicken the shrimp they were all season so good!! I can't wait to go back!!!! Free henna tattoos on Fridays and I love mine! Too cool!! This place is amazing and staff is super friendly I haven't received service like this is a long time! And lucky for me right down the street! Good job y'all!!!!! My server was amazing and my son loved her! Asmine you made our first experience so good that matched the flavor of the food just AMAZING!!!

  • *****

    Very good best tasting Mediterranean food will come back and bring family and friends

  • *****

    This restaurant is an excellent place to get great service and authentic Mediterranean food. Lebanese style, gluten-free and halal. The lamb kabobs were tasty and the grilled cauliflower and grilled mixed vegetables made a wonderful side dish choice. I'm highly sensitive to gluten-but this restaurant is one of a few that has not made me sick. They take the time to ensure no cross-contamination. I love it- my go-to restaurant!

  • *****

    So far everything we have tried here has been delicious! The za'atar manakesh was amazing and puffy like a cloud :) We had falafel, shawarma and kabob sandwiches all of which we enjoyed. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to go again!

  • *****

    I've been waiting for a good Mediterranean restaurant to open in the area and this one is awesome!! The atmosphere is beautiful and inviting and customer service is clearly important to them. I sampled their appetizers and everything was fresh and delicious:)

  • *****

    The food here is so tasty and the staff is very sweet. The Tarboosh sandwich was well seasoned and the meat was very juicy. The lamb biryani was flavorful and had excellent texture. The hummus is buttery and the taste is not too sharp. Highly recommend!

  • *****

    Yesterday my husband and I went there for the first time. The decor is very pleasant and welcoming. I ordered the chicken shwarma plate with veggies and spicey potatoes. It was very good with leftovers too for today!
    My husband ordered the Saturday special chicken and spinach with rice. He felt it could have been a bit spicier. It was good but a bit bland.
    Our server Asmin was extremely pleasant and on top of things.
    We will definitively go back.

  • *****

    This place is worth a try! We started with Kibbeh for appetizers and it was delicious. I ordered the lamb Kabob sandwich and my husband ordered the beef kabob meal (with the skewers). Everything was well seasoned and the waiter was very friendly. They asked if we liked everything a couple of times, which I appreciate! We had a coupon so the price was very reasonable as well.

  • *****

    It was our first visit and the food was awesome! I had the Greek salad (small was big enough for me as my meal) and the husband had the tarboosh mixed grill with fried culiflour and mohammarah. The only thing that wasn't good enough where the samosas. They were very small and were just ok.

  • *****

    The food is delicious! The wait staff was attentive, friendly, and accommodating! I would definitely recommend this place.

  • *****

    This place was amazing!!! The atmosphere was very inviting. The mood and tone made it a relaxing dinner for my wife and I. We went on a Friday evening and they offered free henna to all customers in the restaurant. The Friday night special, Mansaf, was outstanding and big enough for two people. The price was excellent and we had a coupon for a free entree. I gladly would have paid full price for the choices offered and the quality of the food. The pita bread given was also warm, soft and great with hummus. I will be back to try the other nightly specials. They took awhile to open but it was worth the wait and the money.

  • *****

    The chicken shawarma sandwich, fried cauliflower and hummus tasted amazing! This place is 5 minutes from me and very glad I tried it! There was no waiting to be seated! The food came out looked and tasted great and I will definitely be going back!

  • *****

    Ordered chicken kabobs with spicy potatoes and cauliflower

    Potatoes weren't for me but cauliflower was really good!
    Also ordered the humus app plate good portion and it came with lots of toppings including onions, olive oil, parsley, and I believe paprika

    Husband ordered the beef shawarma he was content.

    Overall pretty good dinner, although hostess/waitress was a little slow.

    Everything was fresh!

  • *****

    I sometimes bring my dance students here after our recitals or meet friends here for snacks. The service is always good. The food is always tasty. The decor is beautiful and they are usually playing modern or classical Arabic music, which I love!

  • *****

    Excellent food. Nice family atmosphere we have catered from here and food was fantastic. Owners are nice and ambiance is good.

  • *****

    I have visited this spacious, beautiful Mediterranean restaurant off 529, twice now and my experience was solid both times. Friendly owner manager helped us make a entre choices and the server was equally pleasant and helpful. One of the things I really like about this place are its late hours. It is really hard to get a late night meal that is one fast breakfast, so this option is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Whether chicken, lamb, beef or fish, all dishes were excellently prepared and coupled with good sides to satisfy. All meats seem to be cooked over a grill which gives it a succulent but crisp taste. Give this place a try for lunch, dinner or late night if you find yourself in the neighborhood.

  • *****

    Great food and Awesome service! So fresh and yummy! Hey Cypress, you must try here !!! Thumbs up

  • *****

    Picked up falafels, baba ganoush, lentil soup and 2 different types of humus. The food was excellent and service was very good.

  • *****

    Decor is gorg. Nice atmosphere and amazing service. Jessica was our server and she was superb. Food was delicious and we are so glad it is close to home. Affordable pricing, and our family of 3 enjoyed our lunch. The portion is good and we had leftovers. The only bad thing was the tap water. Other than that we love our first visit and would def come back.

  • *****

    Nice place to eat. Staff very friendly and attentive. Menu simple and easy to understand. Only knock on them is the meat portions are WAY to small for the prices.
    I mean one kabob of chicken for $12?

  • *****

    Excellent food and service, best chicken by far in Houston. Was very surprised to find good middle eastern food on this side of town.

  • *****

    I am sooo glad I went back. I just ate the best pizza I have had in years. I highly recommend this restaurant. Will bring the rest of the family next time.

  • *****

    Chicken kabob was very good. It had a lot of flavor. The rice, veggies, and spicy potatoes are delicious. I got the mango smoothie. It tasted like pure mango. I wish they had like an appetizer sampler to try the different appetizers though, but other than that I would highly recommend!

  • *****

    Great casual place to eat. Great food, great prices, absolutely best service. Definitely telling friends and family about this place

  • *****

    My boyfriend and I came here for his birthday to use a Groupon I had. We were really impressed. The atmosphere was really nice and the food was delicious. We had great service and it is definitely a place we want to return. My boyfriend had the mixed grill and I had a beef schwarma and we both found them to be very good quality.

  • *****

    I've been looking for a Mediterranean restaurant in Cypress and finally found it! We were pleasantly surprised by the service we received from Maysha and the quality of the food. This is a true family owned restaurant and we could see the family members working together, and checking on us to see if everything was okay. The family plate was delicious!! It came with 4 grilled to perfection lamb chops and 2 of each kebabs. Everything was good, the spicy potatoes, fried cauliflower, grilled veggies and french fries. If there is any suggestions for improvement is to offer warm pita bread. Ours was cold and a bit chewy. Overall, great place for authentic Mediterranean food, priced very well.

  • *****

    First time visit on 4/20, We order lamb chop, beef kabab,
    cornish hen, humus, fried okra, carrot juice,
    Every thing was fresh and delicious ! Seasoning on meat was best and you have to try cauliflower and humus with meat.
    Beautiful dining room every staff was friendly can't wait to visit again

  • *****

    Really great service. Food was pretty good, I won't complain. The customer service was impeccable though. We ordered the lamb and they have a Basmati special on Sunday's.

    Ordered the Lamb Kabob, tender, a little burnt, but it was okay. The hummus is full of olive oil, wasn't really my thing but good none the less. The spicy potatoes are just that. Slivers of potatoes. I thought they would've been a little crunchy, they aren't.

    The vegetable baba ganoosh tastes pickled. I wasn't a fan.

    Overall I ended up giving away the babaganoosh, hummus, and the yoghurt/cucumber spread. I've had better lamb, but it was pretty good.

    Like I said, the service was awesome so I appreciated that.

  • *****

    The food is very tasty and prices are reasonable. I highly recommend Mansaf & kufta and even beef shawarma was good. Definitely I'm going in again

  • *****

    We have been here several time before but this time the taste was really good. They have improved a lot. We ordered the family platter for 4 and everything on the plate was yummy and properly cooked. The ambience and service is also good.

  • *****

    Wow wow and wow ... I have to be the most craziest person to never give Mediterranean food a chance. Where do I begin I was with my wife and son we were looking around course it was the usual you know Burger King Mexican food Chick-fil-A you know the usual we've had it before. All I'm behold what was in the old Kroger's Shopping Center that just closed down on Highway 6 and West it was this Mediterranean spot when we walked in we were impressed by the magnificent waterfall flooring impressive seating table spaces as well as a scent of the good food being cooked I can tell right away when we walked in with braids in my hair because everyone's eyes got big and they looked at me like oh my God who is he and what is he want LOL. I walked up to the counter I explain to the lady that I did not know anything about Mediterranean food she was very kind and explained it all I asked about the certain thing she walked us through the hole food table they had out. Before she could even finish that was about two or three items that I wanted to try because I didn't know what it was it look interesting I don't know what we tried I still can't pronounce it but why it was so good tasty tender the rice it's like a dirty rice but it's tough to know a little hen or chicken a wife had Curry I had some hummus with some like little brown peanut balls or something I don't know then they gave us this bread I thought it was a huge tortilla but it was really better to me . For me hands down this has been the best restaurants in a long time that I have walked into and can honestly say I fell in love with I will be back I will be sharing liking everything on Facebook I can't wait to see y'all again

  • *****

    We've been waiting for this restaurant to open and visited today. The food was phenomenal!!! We
    Tried the falafel, shawarma, hummus and baba ganoush and they were all wonderful. Probably the best Mediterranean food I've had in many years! The server was very helpful and attentive. We went at lunch and the restaurant was not crowded. We did have to wait a long time for our food which wasn't desirable but once we got it and tasted it I got over it.
    We ate at the previous restaurant at this location for ten years and the transformation is lovely!
    Looking forward to returning and trying other dishes! And FYI they do have a kids menu that is not listed on their website - we hesitated taking our kids because we didn't think they offered things they would enjoy but they do have one! Enjoy!

  • *****

    I was waiting for this place to open up. Good food especially the chicken shawarma and falafel and great service I highly recommend this place

  • *****

    We love this place! The staff is always friendly and super fast! I often come here to order a falafel sandwich with their amazing hummus and spicy potatoes. I LOOOVE this place!

  • *****

    Great food and atmosphere.
    We had the lentil soup , tarboosh mixed grill, lamb chops, hummus, baba ghanouj, and spicy potatoes. All was excellent. We will be back again! Great job with the new location!

  • *****

    My wife saw it on Groupon and we went for lunch on a Sunday, this was my second time eating Mediterranean food, was very delicious, place was nice. I highly recommend it.

  • *****

    I don't love Mediterranean food, but I had a very good experience at Tarboosh, I ordered the Mansaf and it was DELICIOUS. It was probably the best Mediterranean dish I've ever had. I love the ambiance, very nice place with pretty chandeliers. The only complain I have is the service. Service was a bit slow. It was a Friday night, and there was only 2 waitstaff. Other than that, everything else was perfect!

  • *****

    The first thing you notice as you walk into this unpretentious restaurant is the wonderful, warm, fragrant smells coming out of the kitchen. The fragrance just envelops you like a big old hug from Grandma. The two servers who helped us were, respectively, helpful/efficient and friendly, happy, almost joyous. Really made the dining experience delightful.

    We had chicken shawerma plates. The chicken was a little dry but memorably flavorful, and the sides were all wonderful--we shared hummus, baba ghanouj, mohammarah, and spicy potatoes. The rice was also wonderful (& I'm not normally a big rice fan). The dessert (knafeh???) was almost literally to die for....I would eat that if you slathered it on old muddy shoes.

    Another thing? Clean, relaxed atmosphere. Try this place; you won't be sorry.

  • *****

    Tarboosh offers such a variety of flavors. We consistently get the family platter and alternate our sides and have yet to be disappointed. The hummus, the desserts, EVERYTHING we have ever tried there has resulted in being repeat customers.

    Be aware they don't serve alcohol but they do have some great Turkish coffee so drink that and then go out.

    Our server is always so welcoming and will answer all questions and doesn't mind over enthusiastic guests. I happen to be an enthusiastic guest because the flavors are so good! Also very reasonable prices 10/10 would recommend again

  • *****

    This new restaurant just opened up. It is gorgeous inside, the menu is reasonably priced (for the same amount of money you will spend at Taco Bell next door, you can buy a delicious meal here), and the service is exceptional.

    They are open late and have hookah.

  • *****

    We had dinner here and the food was fantastic!

    We ordered lentil soup and hummus as our appetizers, both were fresh delicious.

    For dinner we had lamb shanks and a mixed grill, both were plentiful and tasted great.

    Great place to bring the kids, the kids pizza was freshly baked and very kid friendly.

    Absolutely Amazing!! Some of the best hummus and stuffed grape leaves I have ever had!! I had the Greek Salad and my husband had the mixed grill plate. We loved it all! We can't wait to bring our boys back. Great prices and large servings.

    With much hesitation and reluctantly, my kids went along with me to Tarboosh. A lot of community members had been there and had posted good reviews, so, it was my turn to give them a try.

    We went for dinner, right around 8pm. It was pretty spacious from inside, and we were told to grab any available seat. The waiter came right away to take out drink orders and then we proceeded to order our food items. We went with a tabouli salad for appetizer. For the main entrees, we ordered a chicken shwarma platter, a beef shwarma sandwich platter, a cheese burger with FF, and a kids pizza.

    Each of the platters came with rice, FF and hummus. Our tabouli was just #MEH and that is something that the restaurant can work on. It was too dark, and lacking tomatoes and burghul (cracked wheat). As far as platters go, they were delicious. Meat was cooked to perfection and seasoned very well. They came with a nice bed of rice, and FF that were golden brown and crisp. Even the hummus tasted very good. Our cheeseburger was good and my son loved it as he devoured it. The youngest one went with a cheese pizza and he was very satisfied. He didn't have too many expectation.

    Being that all 4 of us enjoyed our visit, I see myself coming back here very soon.

    I am not a fan of Mediterranean food due to several bad experiences but when my husband was craving some, we stumbled upon this place. I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised.

    Both of us got a variation of the kabob plates. I got the lamb with potatoes and hummus. My husband got the chicken with fried cauliflower. Both plates were brought out piping hot and smelled delicious. I took my first bite of the rice and knew it was going to be a great meal. The lamb was tender and without the gamey taste. The hummus was by far my favorite especially scooped up with bread. It tasted freshly homemade unlike pre-packaged hummus. The chicken was moist and the fried cauliflower lightly fried for taste. Both dishes were light and refreshing. For dessert, we took home the rice pudding which wasn't on the menu. It's different than regular rice pudding and not as sweet. Everything is a must try! I will be visiting this place again in the near future.
