The Maxis Om Nom Nom Race - Location #2 : Tarbush Restorant, Sunway Pyramid

We have now reached our second destination, Tarbush in Sunway Pyramid! We’re pretty pumped that we’ve kept our lead :)
History: Tarbush is the leading Middle Eastern Restaurant in Malaysia. Since its humble beginnings as a small sandwich bar in Ampang in 1998, Tarbush has 3 other branches: Jalan Bukit Bintang, Starhill Gallery, and Batu Feringghi, Penang. The next branch will be opening in Wisma Atria in Singapore so our friends across the sea will also enjoy wonderful Middle Eastern cuisine that we Malaysians have come to adore. Besides these branches, there is also an Al Halabi Lounge in Marriot Hotel on Jalan Bukit Bintang.


With Ms. Shereen, BossLady of the establishment!

Drinks Ice Lemon Tea (RM9.00) and Lemon Na ‘Na’ (RM11)


Arayes Chicken (RM20.00)
Crunchy, pan fried Lebanese bread wrapped around flavorful minced chicken with greens and a lemon to squeeze on the side. We personally enjoyed this the most among all the wonderful dishes served to us at Tarbush. It’s basically a savoury grilled sandwich Middle Eastern Style!


Biryani Lamb (RM24.00)
Louis was the only one amongst us to have tried Biryani Lamb before, just once, in KL, and this was totally incomparable! It was an explosion of flavors and tastes in all our mouths. The generous portions of Lamb were amazing to eat; juicy, tender and well-done! The accompanying chili sauce and curry also went very well with the Biryani rice. The aroma of the parsley also brought out the best of the Biryani.


Appetizer: Humus Tahinah (RM10.00) and Dessert: Mahalabia (RM10.00)
A mildly tasting milk cream pudding garnished with chopped pistachio! We thought it was a pleasant way to end our meal after all the strong tastes and herbs we’ve been having!



The restaurant is well lit and had wonderfully comfortable chairs! 2 wonderful fountains placed in the middle of the restaurant. Cushioned seats and beautiful Middle Eastern pottery and paintings adorned the inside.


We also learned that they serve shisha for those of you who enjoy it after 3pm daily!



Opening Hours: Daily from 10am-1am, perfect for chilling after a late night movie!
