This little gem is owned by an Australian restaurateur who hung out in the Middle East for 12 years, learning the language and experiencing the food.   He has bought his local knowledge to us lucky Gold Coasters and we just keep going back for more!...More

Description
Taboon in Robina serves Modern Middle Eastern food in a relaxed and contemporary setting. The Café / Restaurant cuisine is based around the traditional stone oven of the Middle East and drawing its recipes from a variety of countries such as Israel, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, and Turkey. Try the Mixed Dip plate with hand baked pita breads, a great variety of Falafels (all Vegan), or the Hummus & Lamb as fantastic starters. Some of Taboon’s popular main dishes include The Moroccan Lamb Shank Tagines, Mixed plate for 2 and unique Middle Eastern Pizzas. Vegetarian & vegan dishes are ample, like the Falafel Lunch Bowl, Hummus & Mushrooms which are also adored by foodies. The meat and chicken is Halal. For a sweet end to your meal, enjoy Taboon’s sensational Chocolate and Halva Cake, served warm with Vanilla bean ice cream or the Malabi cream scented with Orange blossom layered with berry syrup & crumbled baklava.
