Bought a Everyday living social deal for Tarbush, RM65 for 2 pax, a satisfying meal, it is so much cheaper considering i was there almost 4 years ago and we paid more than that for 2 pax. It includes below:

1 Appetizer (choose from : Tarbush Hommus<chickpea>, Baba Ghanoush<eggplant mixed with tomato etc>, Mutabal<eggplant mixed with white bean etc> & Labne<cottage cheese>)

1 Main course (choose from Maklouba (Lamb/Chicken)<eggplant spiced rice with meat>, Bamyeh with White Rice<okra lady’s finger stew>, Kofteh Stew with White Rice (daud basha)<meatball stew with rice> & Biryani (Lamb/Chicken))

1 Grills (choose from Spicy Shish Tawook<grilled chicken cube>, Shish Kabab<grilled lamb mince> & Grilled Spring Chicken)

1 Dessert(choose from Mahalabia<milky cream dessert with sprinkles of pistachio>, Cream Caramel & Fruit Platter)

2 Soft Drink (choose from 7up, Miranda Orange & Pepsi)


Free pickles for nibbling(that’s is raw chilli padi which is very spicy), nonpitted black olives, cucumber and some pickles


Tarbush hummos which is very fragrant with sesame, a tad salty but very nice.


Complementary bread, it would be better if the bread is warmed.


Lamb Maklouba(rice is cooked with eggplant/tomato) with yoghurt on the side, lamb is warm and flavorful, rice is very big portion, i think i would have preferred briyani rice as this rice taste of cumin/fennel, quick a distinct spice scented rice.


Lamb kebab, moist and piping hot from the grill, taste good


Fruit platter


appetizer menu


main course/rice menu


grills menu


dessert menu

part of the drink menu

Overall, i find this is a good deal from living social as the portion served is normal portion and not sized down, a filling and satisfying meal.

    Hi Vivien,
    Thanks for asking on the baking heat for my recipe of lemon cake. I did bake at 220c and as stated for 40 mins or ‘UNTIL THE CAKE IS DONE’.
    Please do adjust accordingly if you feel the heat is too high.

    Btw I have come across Tarbush in Empire Subang but have not tried before. I am looking forward to a meal here after reading your post and esp seeing the lamb dish. Now this post of yours is really tempting me to get to Tarbush for a hearty meal.

    This is one of my favourite middle eastern places in town. I like the decor and the food.

    Food looks good and yeah I think you got a good deal using livingsocial. The prices on the menu look very high but I guess it’s because this is at Starhill.

    Have you tried Malika Saba – they have one in Wangsa Maju and one in Ipoh?
