Taboon is a nice place to eat, service is great and the food is yum. However, portions are not the largest and it is expensive for what you get

I actually went to get a paper, walked past Taboon, and saw that they did breakfast. I've been here a few times for dinner, but never for breakfast so I thought I'd give it a try. I ordered a baked-egg dish (not sure of the name to be honest) with Turkish sausage, like a salami. This was delicious and the... More

Hi Linda K I am surprised to hear that our Garlic Prawn Luch Bowl was not to your taste as it is a very popular menu item. The prawns are sauteed in garlic & olive oil and sit on our steamed egyptian rice and smokey eggplant dip. They are then topped with chopped vegetables, parsley & cracked wheat, garlic &... More

The service is very friendly. The dips are great and the mains delicious. The only thing that needs improving is the desserts. We had the baklava with ice cream and the baklava was dry and terrible, I even had a bit missing off the baklava. Stick to the dips and mains which are very nice.

We love Taboon Restaurant and have introduced many of our friends to it. The food is always good and it is a BYO, which makes it economical. We have always received friendly service.
