Lovers of Lebanese cuisine have it made for them in Paddington at Tarboush, a charming Middle Eastern restaurant located on Edgware Road. Decorated in a sleek style with some opulent Middle Eastern touches, London’s Tarboush provides the perfect backdrop, whether its for a casual lunch, a family meal or a romantic date. Start off by sharing some small mezze plates like the makdous (stuffed baby aubergines with walnuts, crushed garlic and olive oil) or the mekanek (minced lamb sausages and pine nuts pan-fried in a pomegranate sauce). Then, move on to some mouthwatering meat like the kofra bel laban (minced lamb meatballs cooked a yoghurt sauce and served with crispy pita croutons), some seafood like the luoz mashwy (charcoal-grilled whole fresh seabass served with lemon juice) or a hearty vegetarian dish like the moussaka.
Lovely atmosphere and brilliant food. Portions are generous. The perfect location for a meal when going to see a show at the Colosseum. Cash only (not a problem as there is an ATM next door..
Really great food and excellent service. A little pricy but a wonderful meal. The moutabel and chicken livers were the stars of the mezzes and the mixed grill was a great main course.
The evening was very good from the helpful server to the great sampling of food. Service was quick and courteous. Our satisfaction was confirmed by the owner. Nice touch
