I don't give "5 star rating" lightly but Taboush (and the staff) deserves every one of them. From the moment you walk in the door, you are greeted with a genuine warm friendly greeting from the staff, you are seated quickly, given a menu and the name of the person that is waiting on you, the drinks appeared quickly and...

A great informal restaurant with a large menu and BYO option. I went with friends for lunch and we ordered a variety of meze and hot dishes, all of which were lovely. The waitress took our photo for us and even lent us some fezs for posing... cue many a Tommy Cooper joke! A lovely café.

Lovely food with great service. Can be busy, loud and noisy at the weekend with a belly dancer but the service is great. As a bonus you can bring your own alcohol.

Having been to this restaurant 18 months earlier on another football weekend I was eager to visit again. At short notice the manager said he could accommodate the three of us later in the evening about 21:30. Perfect. We had 9 taster plates and they were all absolutely delicious. The place was buzzing with at least 3 birthday parties adding... More
