While this restaurant is in a mall, don't be scared to try it out. The food is delicious and the portions are huge. Keep in mind that this isn't your average mall but rather a modernization of a souk, local market and so it has a some what cozy but 'market place"-ish feel to it. We had 2 main courses... More

Each time that we go there we don't regret it. We love everything that we have tried. Although I think that some of the recipes are tooo salty for me.

My husband and I were shopping in the souk, and needed a quick lunch. Tarbouche was the obvious choice. We didn't want anything too heavy, and so asked whether we could have a series of mezze plates between us instead of a main. The restaurant was only too happy to put this together for us (my only stipulation was that... More

This restaurant is in the center of the Central Souk. We love to come here for the atmosphere and the Arabian breakfast. If you haven't tried Turkish coffee, please try it here. It comes on a little silver tray in a beautiful cup and served with a piece of chocolate. A lovely and relaxing way to stay a day in... More

Simple decor, yet great Levantine cuisine. We have been coming here regularly since the opening of this branch, and the food has been consistently great! Fresh ingredients, authentic flavours and VERY friendly staff. Highly recommended!

Located in the progressively busier "Souk Central Market" Tarbouche is a longstanding member of the Abu Dhabi culinary community. I have had falafel in many restaurants in many countries and this is the best I have ever had, perfectly crunchy yet fluffy and green on the inside. The rocca (aragula) salad with pomegranate is another standout as are the broad... More

It was our first visit to the restaurant which is located in the middle of the beautiful souq. They serve traditional Arabic food, we had mixed grill and moutabal which was very tasty. The complimentary milk pudding was delicious. Food is served by traditionally attired staff who are attentive and courteous and the ambience is good.
