the staff wasn't the best but it was good. I can give the food 4 stars only because the bread they served with the mix grill had bad smell and I couldn't eat it . the serving of the tea was nice I liked it .

Went there after a recommendation from a local resident.. Comfortably located at the basement of the fancy Starhill Gallery.. Serves Leb & Arabic food. The portions were gracious as my wife & I were packed after the starters.. Even the Orange Juice we ordered was fresh & delicious. Just wasn't able to get my hands on a beer as the... More

Considering the location, prices, and reviews on TripAdvisor, I must admit that I expected better quality of arabic food! We ordered a basic biryani (which is difficult to mess up) but unfortunately they didnt get it right. Its my second time here, and I dont think I'll go back, unless I'm with someone who REALLY insists.

Fantastic. I think we visited the other location closer to the pavilion. We had a variety of dishes-all vegetarian and equally fresh and delicious. Clean restaurant. Upstairs is more comfy. Friendly staff. Totally authentic. Try a bit of everything - skip the mixed pickles and olives as they come with most dishes!

Tarbush is one of the nice Lebanese restaurants in Kuala Lumpur , because of fresh and tasty food which I had a couple of experiences there. Last time was 2 days ago for lunch which I found that it is still fabulous.

On Sunday 22nd Jan my friend and I, who were visiting friends in Kuala Lumpur for a few days, had dinner at Tarbush restaurant. Basically to sum it up, this place is more trouble than it's worth - if you're a tourist they are likely to try and scam you out of any money they can - whether it's just... More

We stopped at Tarbush for lunch after spending the earlier part of the day at the theme park next door. The meat used for the shish kebab was good and the service was very good too
