This is the street-side outlet between Pavilion and Lot 10. Based on my last few visits, it has become a roadside canteen for Middle Eastern tourists, looking to grab a rushed bite. Other travellers better stay away. The service is beyond confused. For example, if you ask for "...and later, a coffee", you can be sure that the coffee will... More

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
